On February 22nd, The Agency offered VIP guests an exclusive first look at three newly unveiled penthouse residences at Scottsdale’s Hotel Valley Ho, a stunningly restored, 1950s hideaway and beloved stomping ground of some of Hollywood’s brightest stars, including Bing Crosby, Tony Curtis and Zsa Zsa Gabor.
As guests approached the famed midcentury modern building, a collection of orange, turquoise and lime McLarens parked outside paid homage to the hotel’s iconic color scheme. Guests were greeted with champagne and ushered down the red carpet for photographs before enjoying tours of the residences and an accompanying rooftop soirée.
Boasting panoramic views of the Valley, the penthouses showcase open, airy floor plans, floor-to-ceiling windows, wrap-around balconies, spacious master bedrooms and gourmet kitchens. Staged and styled by Studio 3125, each residence features bright and modern furnishings by iconic Italian design houses, including Flexform, Paola Lenti, Moro and Marco Grassi Grama. Pairing seamless access to the vibrant local culture and activity of Old Town Scottsdale with the services and amenities of the award-winning hotel, residents may unwind with revitalizing treatments at the VH Spa and enjoy full access to two relaxing pools and a fitness center. Optional add-on amenities include 24-hour room service, housekeeping and valet.
The evening’s lively rooftop party kicked off with DJ Rani g, who was accompanied by a live trumpet player, saxophonist and glamorous array of colorfully outfitted dancers. Guests were treated to an open bar and enjoyed small bites by Valley Ho’s very own Executive Chef Russell LaCasce of Café Zuzu. The 7th floor penthouse level offered an entirely different party environment, with a chic and ambient vibe set to the sounds of DJ Yvonne Black. Guests enjoyed a legendary sunset, with vibrant, candy-colored skies illuminating the penthouses with a golden glow. Legendary Music Cinema and Home Entertainment provided world-class sound architecture for the event, with dynamic systems by Neolith, Sonus Faber and McIntosh providing grooving beats that made Valley Ho the ultimate place to see and be seen in the desert that evening.
