Luxury, landmark resort and spa near Phoenix Mountain Preserve
Arizona's historical "Jewel of the Desert" is 39 acres of paradise at the foot of Phoenix Mountain Preserve. Since 1929 this idyllic landmark resort and spa has been the playground of celebrities and U.S. Presidents. Frank Lloyd Wright served as the consulting architect and his influence is apparent throughout the property.  Friendly, white-glove service makes everyone at home amongst mature grounds, Mission-style accommodations, five restaurants and eight swimming pools. The hotel is near the elite Biltmore Fashion Park shopping center.

The place is beautiful! We enjoyed the chess game and the movie at the pool. Everywhere was really clean and nice. Many things to do at the resort and close by.

Avoid the cottages

Tried to book direct but my conference rate was not available and the price given was unaffordable for this business meeting. I was glad to be able to secure a room at a high but affordable price through an online site. However, I was given a cottage that was truly in need of a renovation. It was dark with only lamps for lighting in the bedroom, the bathroom had broken tiles, no vanity, and in poor shape overall. The resort itself is beautiful with lovely gardens, pools, etc. but all rooms are not equal. If you stay here be sure of what you are booking.

The Central Bistro in a shopping center near the Biltmore is very nice with a great wine selection and wonderful risotto dishes.

Winter get away

Lovely hotel and wonderful setting although with the layout it seemed too large. Golf course was fine except for the 8 minute interval on tee times. This lead to having to wait between shots at times. Hotel wireless internet ciuld use some improvement. Fully stocked lobby bar and great wine room. Food way rather pricey-- I woukd give it 4.5 stars.

Excellent hotel, especially given the size

This was our second stay here. We were not part of a group, although they do a huge conference business here and last weekend was no exception. Despite being very busy, hotel manages to deliver quality service at a very fair price. Location is perfect. Golf course is pretty but not very challenging at all, much better places to play in the area. Had a very good massage, spa facilities are outstanding.

Great nights stay!

The hotel is a beautiful historic hotel. Staff was friendly and accommodating. It had rained so we were not able to utilize our balcony as it had 2" of water in it. A little bit of an disappointment. But is worth the stay.

This our second time at the Biltmore. I liked it both times. The first was not as central but had a breakfast and high tea service.
