SCOTTSDALE, AZ––Following an extensive $100-million investment by Palisades Resorts LLC, Marriott International’s Autograph Collection Hotels will celebrate the grand opening of ADERO Scottsdale in summer 2020. With its elevated views of Arizona’s famed Four Peaks and McDowell Mountain Range, ADERO will be Scottsdale’s only Dark Sky Zone resort with a modern guest experience inspired by the surrounding Sonoran Desert.
The complete development is led by Allen Philp Partners Architecture and Interior Design, MONOGRAM Hospitality Interiors at BBGM, branding agency Sixteenfifty and Aqua-Aston Hospitality, a leading hotel and resort management group. ADERO joins Autograph Collection’s diverse and dynamic portfolio of more than 180 independent hotels carefully crafted with vision and passion. Just like ADERO, each distinctive hotel in the Autograph Collection is singular and special: Exactly Like Nothing Else.
“This new resort has been years in the making and we’re thrilled to debut ADERO come summer 2020 as part of the Autograph Collection,” said Owner and Developer Bill Hinz. “Not only are we creating a year-round getaway for travelers that seek adventure with endless desert terrain and activities, but we’re focusing on connecting guests to the environment, local community and culture, which will complement our superior standard of service.”
Named after the iconic canyon that surrounds the resort, ADERO will intentionally connect guests to the wonder of its natural setting in the heart of the Sonoran Desert with an invigorating offering of outdoor adventure, fitness activities, nature experiences, art, wellness cuisine and culture. Rising from the desert foothills, the stunning summits of the Four Peaks wilderness frame the resort’s view. The six-story, newly developed resort will offer 161-rooms plus 16 suites, outfitted with the latest technology, custom furniture, a simple design palette that reflects the colors of sunrise, thoughtful trailhead-inspired dreamcatchers and expansive balconies. With an incredible 95% of the accommodations positioned to take in the panoramic mountain vistas, views are a major focus.
“The spirit of the ADERO brand – with intended and elevated experiences and amenities – reflects a true sense of place and offers a modern sanctuary inspired by the living elements of our location in the Sonoran Desert. ADERO is not just a place in the desert, it’s a place in harmony with the desert,” said General Manager Ricky Borja.
