The W Scottsdale is perfect if you’re looking for a hotel with great nightlife and excitement! Enjoy this gorgeous hotel during your next stay in Arizona.

The moment I learned I’d be staying at the new W Scottsdale, I was excited! As we all know, the W concept is hip, cool and full of energy. Although the W hotels have the same backbone, each provides a unique experience. I wondered what kind of experience I could expect from this luxury Arizona hotel?

Well, energy is an understatement at W Scottsdale! The hotel is incredibly stylish and clearly a popular hot spot. I definitely was not disappointed.

At the end of an exhausting day of meetings, I headed back to the hotel for one last meeting with Leon Young, the hip General Manager of W Scottsdale. Leon knows W well; he’s opened many of them. We met in what is known as “The Living Room”. This uber modern, tastefully eclectic lounge is situated in the lobby of the hotel.

As our meeting wrapped up, I looked around me, and a party had started around us. Clearly The Living Room is the place to be. Locals were filling in as the business travelers around me began to put aside their laptops, iPhones and Blackberrys to mingle. Everyone at the W was having a fabulous time (and it was only Wednesday).

W Scottsdale Arizona HotelsW Scottsdale also boasts one of the sexiest poolside bars I’ve seen. “Shade” is something you have to see for yourself. The massive shades hovering over the pool are nothing short of stunning. Hungry? Attached to the W Scottsdale is the already famous Sushi Roku. I highly recommend the Spanish Mackerel, and the fresh horseradish is a must.

As I strolled up to my room at the end of the night, I stopped by the lobby gift shop. Instead of local souvenirs, I was delighted to find funky clothing, jewelry and unique gift items – all things you would actually want to buy! Okay there was a Cardinals hat in the mix, but it had a rugged style to it; not the typical souvenir item you’ve seen a million times.

My room at the W was a wonderful room to return to. Style, style, style.

I would return to the W in a heartbeat. In fact, while entertaining guests elsewhere in Scottsdale a week later, I did!
