Arizona Biltmore Resort - A shady respite

Good thing that Frank Lloyd Wright knew how to build hotels in the desert. With temps in the triple digits today, the Arizona Biltmore Resort & Spa is a shady respite for the sun-soaked shopper. After shopping and lunch at TRUE FOOD at the Biltmore Fashion Park, the girls arrived at the Arizona Biltmore Resort.

The cool inner sanctum of the main lobby/reception area opens up to understated elegance. Wright always liked to compress the space at a the building's entrance area, and then open it wide in the main living space. The effect always opens my heart, and I enjoy the soaring feeling everytime a walk into a FLW-designed space. The coolness of the interior is freshing as I reach what could almost be called the inner sanctum: a historic resort hotel known to host Presidents, movie stars, Frank Sinatra and Vagabonding Lulu.


Did I mention Frank Sinatra?
