How many times in your life have you been WOW’ed?
WOW! That is what they call it here.
When I say that word, sometimes I say it with almost a silent whisper.
WOW! (this is me whispering!)
My brain gets overwhelmed by my enthusiasm for what my visual senses can’t quite get wrapped around and my words, even as a storyteller, are at a loss.
I think that is what they want you to feel!
W Scottsdale’s WOW is a feeling!
And THE WOW 2 BEDROOM SUITE at W Scottsdale is no exception.
My latest WOW moment came last week, as I spent a few days at the swanky W Scottsdale. This place is no ordinary hotel and neither is the WOW Suite. As mentioned before, W Scottsdale has a fabulous 2nd floor swimming pool with private cabanas and a 21,000 square foot recreational area that includes an infinity edge pool and a sandy beach. Of course all of that is wonderful, oh and don’t forget the BLISS Spa with all those amazing products and services, but this article is about that WOW suite that I never wanted to leave from the moment I arrived.
Let me just start at my arrival at the front desk, where a snazzy looking, suit checked me in all sweet and smiling (I loved that!), from there he quickly sent me on my way to the elevators. I slid the card in and WA LAA, like magic, the elevators begin to light up and music started to play! I felt like I was on an episode of Cash Cab, remember that show?!!
Once I stepped out of the elevators, there was a private entrance with a key card required to enter the wing where my 6th floor WOW suite was.
Upon opening of the door, all I wanted to do was the “MONEY DANCE”, but I refrained myself a bit so that I could look around and not to embarrass myself in front of the doorman. The entire back wall of the apartment was floor to ceiling glass windows and had an amazing one-touch system to open and close the window shades to the large patio outside. The cool sky and blue watery tones kept the vibe in this suite fresh and airy.
From the 6th floor, we had views of the revitalized ‘Old Town’ Scottsdale, with its throbbing entertainment and arts district, which is attracting a new generation of hipsters.
It also had hardwood floors throughout the entire suite with a separate living area, a huge walk-in entry closet and a lovely guest bathroom in the entryway. From there, I headed to the chef-caliber kitchen, which had an enormous stainless steel Sub Zero refrigerator with built-in kitchen cabinets and a rolling cart bar.
I would say it had everything one could need if you wanted to unpack and stay for a while! I could not help but notice the chilled champagne and chocolate covered cake lollipops they had waiting for me on the stainless steel counter tops!!
On to my bedroom (the master suite), which had an amazing desk, where I did get some work done and a massive bathroom with a rain showerhead and a regular facet head, depending on what type of shower I might want (I chose both!).
Across on the other side of the suite was the just-as-nice, second bedroom.
One cool feature about each of these rooms was the fact that that they had massive walk-in closets and one touch lighting and curtain control. I loved the giant closets and chose this area to unpack my things and to get dressed in this room, since it had a full length mirror as well. Oh, and I even forgot to mention that there is an en-suite full size laundry unit! Yes, everything you could ask for as a traveler, plus a whole lot more!
