Presidential suites and private villas immerse you in luxury

As any traveler knows, not all hotel rooms are created equal. From rooms with a view to rooms with, well, everything, these spacious flats, sweet suites and retro digs are sure to please.

Presidential Loft Suite at Hotel Valley Ho

Located on the fifth and sixth floors of the Hotel Valley Ho’s seven-story tower, the Presidential Loft Suite boasts 1,500 square feet of bright indoor space and 550 square feet of outdoor space, featuring stunning views of Camelback Mountain. The design of the suite is based on the idea of a modern desert loft with mid-century-modern influences. Neutral colors reflect the desert palette, with pops of color through accessories and locally made art. Signature furnishings include the Wing Chair and Footrest (Hans J. Wegner, 1960), B&B Italia Arne Sofa (Antonio Citterio), coffee table (Isamu Noguchi for Herman Miller), and Hope pendant lights above the Luceplan dining table.
