This famous hotel is nestled within the stunning Biltmore Estates neighborhood, which will also be included on this portion of the tour, providing unique, up-close views of Wright’s architectural influences. Old Town Scottsdale provides guests with numerous options to explore the many art galleries and fashion shops, as well as enjoy some fine cuisine from around the Southwest USA.
