General Information

Hotel Overview

Built as one of Phoenix’s first resorts in 1929, the Arizona Biltmore was constructed in grand form by brothers Albert, Charles and Warren McArthur. Frank Lloyd Wright served as the consulting architect, and the Arizona Biltmore remains one of the only existing hotels in the world to benefit from his influence.
Throughout its colorful history, this acclaimed landmark has been graced by U.S. Presidents, celebrities and world travelers. Arizona’s historic Grand Dame radiates an undeniable mystique of refinement and splendor. Isn’t it time you became a part of her story?

Ocatilla at the Arizona Biltmore

Ocatilla was a camp Frank Lloyd Wright established while designing a Biltmore-like hotel.  This compound for architects was a secluded, inspirational place, where, as Wright said “So long as we had the luxuries, the necessities could pretty well take care of themselves.”  Increased amenities and a commitment to elite service are the luxuries that the Arizona Biltmore’s new concierge experience will deliver.  Although the hotel itself was never built, it symbolized “what might have been” in Wright’s mind, and in some respects, this new retreat serves as a tribute to continuing Wright’s vision – in effect, the Biltmore perfected. Ocatilla is a retreat and private sanctuary, where a dedicated concierge attends to individual needs in a well-appointed, relaxed lounge environment. It is truly, inspired by design.

Guest Room Specifications

The distinctive influence of Frank Lloyd Wright is evidenced in the interior design of the resort's 738 guest accommodations. Mission-style furnishings and textiles in desert palettes of beige, sand and ivory dress the rooms. 1930s style lamps bring a western flair to the decor while reinforcing the period in which the hotel was built. The spacious rooms feature well-stocked mini-bars, a working desk with two chairs, two telephones equipped with voice-mail and speed dialing; marble baths and double sinks, hairdryers, make-up mirror and scale.
