Scottsdale, AZ-- Hotel Valley Ho, one of the best-known mid-century modern hotels in the country, will offer an architectural walking tour of the buildings and grounds beginning in October. The twice-weekly tours will explore the classic design elements of the hotel while sharing the history and legends associated with its famous Hollywood guests.
Led by experts from Scottsdale's Ultimate Art & Cultural Tours, the walks give an historical perspective to the mid-century modern design of Hotel Valley Ho, which opened in 1956. The project architect, Edward L. Varney, incorporated intelligent, minimalist design in creating this Arizona landmark.
Over the years, Hotel Valley Ho was the resting spot for Hollywood stars visiting Arizona including Zsa Zsa Gabor, Janet Leigh, Tony Curtis, and Bing Crosby. The hotel also was the location for Robert Wagner and Natalie Woods' 1957 wedding reception.
Hotel Valley Ho was saved from the wrecking ball in 2003, and now stands as a landmark structure in downtown Scottsdale. The 90-minute walks will be available by appointment and cost $19.56 per person. Tours include special offers throughout the hotel including discounts at Trader Vic's, ZuZu, and VH Spa. For more information or for reservations, please call the Hotel Valley Ho concierge at 480-248-2000 or 866-882-4484.
