Historically Hip + Trendy.
Built in 1956, Hotel Valley Ho has classically cool roots and still stands strong today as a must-stay destination in Downtown Scottsdale.
Owned by John B. Mills, along with Robert Foehl and his wife Evelyn, Hotel Valley Ho was built on the belief that “the important thing is to make your guest feel wanted.” Designed by architect Edward L. Varney, known for his minimalist, modern style, the hotel became iconically incomparable. Its design combined modern and Southwestern styles in inspired, innovative ways.
Host to many celebrities including Bing Crosby, Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh, among others, Hotel Valley Ho gained notoriety and quite the fun reputation. In 1958, Ramada acquired the resort and renamed it “Ramada’s Valley Ho Resort.” When the property went up for sale in 2002, Westroc Hospitality was selected to manage the resort and restore it to its mid-century splendor.
Construction began in 2004, and was completed by Kitchell Construction, the original company that built the hotel in 1956. Reopened on December 20, 2005, Hotel Valley Ho shined brighter than it ever had with notable additions including ZuZu, OH Pool, VH Spa and Sands event venue.
Known as “one of the best-preserved mid-century hotels in the country,” by Alan Hess, architect and author of numerous mid-century modern texts, Hotel Valley Ho is the place where your cool comes out to play.
