Summertime Bliss at Hotel Valley Ho

There are many reasons why locals and visitors flock to the bright and shining Hotel Valley Ho in Scottsdale when summer finally arrives and the sun is blazing. So if you are looking for the ultimate desert getaway or a place for summertime play, your search is over. Hotel Valley Ho has it all!

OH Pool Bar + Cabanas
I thought I’d start with Hotel Valley Ho’s prized OH Pool Bar + Cabanas, seeing as it’s my favorite place to enjoy those hot summer days in the Valley. Named one of Travel + Leisure’s “World’s Coolest Pools,” you’ll think twice about sunbathing anywhere else, including on the beach. The pool is martini glass and olive designed and the set-up is as bright and colorful as its daytime cocktails and frozen drinks (try their Miami Vice). Celebrate the weekend and sway to the DJ’s tunes and order some delish poolside fare (I recommend the Chicken Pesto Panini). VIPs are also invited to take their pool experience to the next level with the surrounding Vegas-style cabanas. The OH Pool is oh so happening!
