HOTEL VALLEY HO

ABOUT OUR VENUE
Hotel Valley Ho

Originally opened on December 20, 1956, Hotel Valley Ho has classically cool roots and stands as a modernist icon in Downtown Scottsdale. Owned by John B. Mills, along with Robert Foehl and his wife Evelyn, it was built on the belief that "the important thing is to make your guest feel wanted." The architect, Edward Varney, was known for his cool, minimalist style.

Hotel Valley Ho was a true Hollywood hideaway in its heyday, host to Bing Crosby, Tony Curtis, Janet Leigh and Zsa Zsa Gabor, among others. Celebrities loved that the paparazzi would not follow them to Scottsdale. Ramada acquired the hotel in 1973 and renamed it "Ramada's Valley Ho Resort." Over the years, some of the classic design elements were altered and the hotel lost its luster. In 2002, the property went up for sale. Local company Westroc Hospitality worked to restore the hotel to its mid-century splendor and continues to manage operations.

HOTEL VALLEY HO    SANDS BALLROOM @ HOTEL VALLEY HO

Reopened on December 20, 2005, Hotel Valley Ho shines brighter than ever with notable additions including ZuZu, VH Spa, and the OH Pool. Named "one of the best-preserved mid-century hotels in the country" by author and architect Alan Hess, Hotel Valley Ho is the place where your cool comes out to play.
