I had the pleasure of staying at the Arizona Biltmore last week, thanks to Infusionsoft.
The architecture is detailed, unique and surprising to find in a hotel. At first glance you may assume it was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. He did consult on it – and actually this is the only hotel with his influence – but Albert Chase McArthur, a student of Wright’s, is the designer of record.
Built in 1929, it was known as the Jewel of the Desert, and was the inspirational location for many creatives, including Irving Berlin, who is said to have written White Christmas poolside. Marilyn Monroe considered the the Arizona Biltmore pool her favorite spot to lounge in the sun.
Along with 8 swimming pools, spa, tennis courts, shops, a cafe, upscale dining, outdoor fireside seating, the hotel is adjacent to two 18 hole PGA golf courses, and the community offers resort living in the Biltmore area.
Surrounding the hotel are condos and luxury homes such as this one, currently offered for sale at $3,495,000, it’s exterior swathed in greenery, a stark contrast to the neutral beauty of the interior decor. In it’s 8530 square feet, you’ll find 5 bedrooms, 7 baths and theme rooms such as the gift wrapping room and the movie screening room.
The condos above are located on East Arizona Biltmore Circle. There is a condo currently listed for sale at $490,000. The 4 bath unit is still quite large with 2668 square feet and each of it’s 4 bedrooms has balcony/patio exits.
Wouldn’t it be nice to have a permanent vacation home in this luxurious Biltmore oasis?
