Business travelers might help keep it quiet enough during the week, but when the weekend rolls around, the W Scottsdale
earns its rep as a party hotel. By day, a young, trendy, and sometimes noisy crowd hangs at WET, the rooftop pool, keeping well oiled with sunscreen and bar drinks. By night, the scene remains trendy, and noisy, at the lobby’s Living Room Lounge, or at Shade Lounge upstairs by the pool, often to a background of live music or a DJ, until the revelers are off to bed, or off to some of the many bars and clubs within walking distance. Rooms have all the tech gadgets, and the use of color and frosted glass makes them feel light and playful without going overboard.
