A boutique resort in the heart Downtown of Scottsdale, The Scott is a melding of disparate energies and origins. Blending inside with outside, spaciousness with intimacy and the exotic with the nostalgic, The Scott captures that intangible feeling of welcome. The Scott embodies one man’s dream of home: infused with the colors and comforts of old Havana, the edge and flare of New Orleans, the elegant geometry of the Bauhaus, and the serendipity of friends and memories made on the road.
