Certificate of Excellence
Mountain Shadows set the benchmark for desert luxury and distinctive design when it first opened in 1959. Now, it’s been completely re-envisioned from the ground up. The brand-new resort is set in the shadow of Camelback Mountain in the serene town of Paradise Valley, an affluent community of Scottsdale, Arizona. Contemporary design is infused with a dash of the 1950's modernism that the original resort was famous for. Mountain Shadows features 183 guest rooms. Savor American fare that’s delightful in its simplicity at Hearth ’61 restaurant, bar and living room. Head to The Citizens Club for fitness classes, organic drinks from the juice bar and relaxing afternoons poolside. The Short Course offers 18 holes of par-3 golf, with options for the novice player and the experienced golfer. After a round, visit Rusty’s for grille fare and brews inside and on the patio. Desert and mountain views throughout the resort set the tone for a stay that’s relaxing yet invigorating.

We stayed at Mountain Shadows for 3 days and it was a great stay. We love mid-century modern and this resort is built on the same location as the original resort from the late 50's. It has kept but updated their mid-century modern roots and it is one great spot. From the

The hotel staff was amazing to work with, rooms were beautiful with mid-century modern appeal, and there were great amenities - would definitely return! Every detail was attended to - from dinner seating for our large group, to bringing us blankets as we sat around outdoor fires

Sorry for the late response. Hard to say, I too have 2 teenagers. They would have things to do but not a huge resort and nothing within walking distance but hiking. Definitely would stay there for short trip but not for more than 2-3 nights .

Yes, the fitness center is open now. The pool is between two building but in a very large courtyard. It receives sun from early morning (8am) until late afternoon (5pm) this time of year. These hours will continue to expand as we progress into summer.

"Ask for a room with a view to camelback mountain. And, see if a room with a balcony is available. Wooza."
"Treat yourself to a ground floor room with the extra space and patio -- it is well worth it."
"Best views, amazing beds, great style"
"Even numbered rooms likely face the courtyard."
"All rooms on all floors are very quite due to high-end, quality construction."
