The Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch Reopens
Resort reopens after extensive $10 million renovation, transforming the hotel by adding two new restaurants, a reimagined main pool, new outdoor event spaces and refreshed guest rooms.
The design team took inspiration from the resort’s history and architecture and refreshed the look staying true to its original aesthetic design. The fully redesigned arrival experience, including lush landscaping and signage, and a renovated lobby lead guests into the new Bar Six40. The transformed courtyard is now a lively social space where guests can enjoy drinks and bites from the new Kitchen West Restaurant while enjoying live entertainment around the large fireplace and new fire pits.
Additionally, the main pool area was completely remodeled and now includes a full-service restaurant and bar called Twisted Vine. It features eight new cabanas available for private rental, a shaded trellis in the water and a bridge-like water feature dividing the new pool, which is 2.5 times larger than the previous one. The pool area also has been modernized with water features.
Of the resorts 326 guest rooms 266 have been updated with new artwork and bedding, a headboard, carpeting, two chairs, a window table, new color schemes for a brighter look and feel, and desks. Twenty first-floor rooms now have private patios with access to the main pool. The guest room corridor boasts fresh new paint, carpeting and historical Scottsdale artwork. The remainder of the guestrooms will be renovated in 2016.
ENCHANCED OUTDOOR MEETING SPACE
Renovation significantly expanded and upgraded the outdoor event facilities. The property now features two event lawns and one sport court. The larger main lawn offers more than 10,000 square feet of event space and can accommodate up to 1,200 people for receptions, events and teambuilding exercises. The new community lawn near the resort entrance boasts clear views of the iconic Camelback Mountain and will host a variety of public events open to resort guests and locals along with private events for groups and meetings. Groups of up to 600 people can take advantage of the 330 days of annual sunshine in Scottsdale and clear, starry desert skies.
Kitchen West Restaurant will be opening shortly and will offer an authentic experience that embraces the boldness of the Western spirit. Executive chef Rick Dupere has created a seasonal menu of unique American Western fare, and plans to source the freshest products possible from the Western United States.
In the middle of the lobby, The Scottsdale will debut a new lobby bar serving as an extension of the restaurant. Bar Six40 will serve local coffee, freshly squeezed juices, and light breakfast options and snacks. Guests will enjoy craft beers and wines with live entertainment during the afternoon and evenings.
