Bespoke Inn, Café & Bicycles
As its name suggests, the Bespoke Inn, Café & Bicycles is one of the more eccentric accommodations in downtown Scottsdale. This compact bed-and-breakfast, opened in 2013, has just four rooms. Each is decorated with homey, eclectic details that reflect the creativity of the hotel’s previous owners, who designed and built most of the inn’s furnishings themselves. The current owners, Jeremy Ferris and Robert Marchetti, are bringing in elements of Marchetti’s Italian heritage, which will show up in the updated courtyard and four new rooms coming soon. The result is a surprising blend of style and comfort, reinforced by the hotel’s ability to make guests feel they have all become friends. (Admittedly, making friends is easier with four—soon to be eight—rooms than with 400; but that’s one of the attractions of a B&B.) There are other surprises, too. In 2013 Esquire magazine called the café—which has its own odd appellation, Virtù Honest Craft—one of the 20 best new restaurants in America. And the hotel provides Pashley bicycles for guests to use during their stays.

Neighborhood Vibe
The inn is within walking (or pedaling, which is why locks are provided) distance of downtown Scottsdale restaurants, shopping, and entertainment. Worth getting on a bicycle for are the pork shoulder tacos at the Mission and farm-fresh plates paired with Arizona wines at FnB.
Need to Know
Rooms: 8 rooms
Check-in: 3 p.m.–7 p.m.; check-out: 11 a.m.
Dining options: It would be hard to imagine another four-room inn with a better dining option than the 25-seat Virtù Honest Craft. Owned and operated by James Beard–award nominee Chef Gio Osso, whom Esquire food columnist John Mariani has praised for his ability to interpret Mediterranean fare “with Arizona swagger,” the café is open for brunch and dinner. For inn guests, a real delight is that guests are offered a special price of $10 for brunch.
Spa and gym details: There’s a small gym and a stainless-steel lap pool. But for many guests, the exercise of choice—temperature permitting—is bicycling. Guests have complimentary use of classic British Pashley city bicycles, and Rob can arrange and sometimes lead tours on more advanced bikes, for more serious riders.
Insider Tips
Who’s it for: Cyclists are made to feel special here, like canines at a dog-friendly hotel, with bags of snacks and other necessities prepared for morning rides. Conversely, anyone who likes to wake late to a gourmet brunch then head out to “do” downtown Scottsdale will be at home, too.
Our favorite rooms: Every room has its own character. 
Bike speak: To most enjoy time with the hosts, Bespoke guests should learn to speak a little bicycle geek. (Hint: carbon fiber equals mass production equals boring; steel equals craftsmanship equals the best ride forever.)
