Paradise Valley, AZ. March 07, 2018 -

A celebrated desert destination has been reimagined for a new era of luxury as Mountain Shadows has officially opened its luxury wing of resort condominiums and suites, marking the completion of the $100-million resort. Nestled between Scottsdale and Phoenix in serene Paradise Valley, Mountain Shadows Resort Condominiums recapture the glamour of this mid-century playground with incredible amenities and resort perks.
Sitting between iconic Camelback Mountain and Mummy Mountain, the only three-story residential building in this small, affluent enclave features 41 fully furnished luxury resort condominiums priced from $840,000 to $4.1 million. There are four penthouses as well as studio, one-, two- and three- bedroom floor plans, ranging from 1,000 to 3,410 square feet, with select units available for guests seeking a suite experience for their resort stay. Expect a tranquil enclave with “lock and leave” resort-style living, as well as a rich tapestry of amenities including full access to Mountain Shadows resort, which features floor-to-ceiling glass, butterfly roofs and an abundance of outdoor spaces to admire the dramatic views.
“It’s the next iteration of resort living—but with vibrant culture, moonlight yoga, harvest-to-hearth cuisine and outdoor adventure,” said Scott Lyon, founder and managing partner of Westroc Hospitality. “Residents and guests are checking into a lifestyle.”
Luxurious amenities at Mountain Shadows include:

  • The Citizens Club, a 4,000-square-foot, high-tech wellness center, complete with two 75-foot pools, cabanas, and vibrant fitness programming
  • The Gallery, featuring artist talks and new exhibitions every two months, including artists with connections to Frank Lloyd Wright and Arizona
  • Hearth ’61, which serves seasonal American fare by renowned Executive Chef Charles Wiley, named one of “The Ten Best New Chefs in America” by Food & Wine
  • The Short Course, Arizona’s only 18-hole, par-3 golf course, completely redesigned by Forrest Richardson, acclaimed golf course architect

Originally opened in 1959, Mountain Shadows wrote the script for desert luxury before the town of Paradise Valley was even incorporated, luring Hollywood stars including Bob Hope, Lucille Ball, and Robert Stack. Rebuilt from the ground up by Woodbine Development Corporation and Westroc Hospitality, the acclaimed developers behind Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain Resort & Spa in Paradise Valley and Scottsdale’s Hotel Valley Ho, the brand-new resort opened its doors in April 2017. Mountain Shadows features 183 guestrooms, a presidential suite facing Camelback Mountain, as well as 37,500 square feet of indoor and outdoor event space.
Scottsdale-based Allen + Philp Architects designed the resort, while New York City firm MARKZEFF conceptualized the dramatic interiors. MARKZEFF’s top-tier portfolio includes the upcoming Virgin Hotel flagship in NYC. At Mountain Shadows, each room and suite is a personal retreat where residents and guests can rest and re-energize amidst the best of mid-century modernism and contemporary design. Guestrooms are luxurious from top to bottom, boasting breezy layouts, geometric lighting, spacious showers, vintage artwork and plush bedding.
Mountain Shadows Resort Condominiums can be booked for leisure stays, from $429 to $2,899 nightly. Guestrooms in the resort are available from $179 to $529, while the Camelback Presidential Suite is available from $819 to $1,099. For more information on Mountain Shadows, please visit

Guest Service: Empowering People

Excellent customer service is vitally important in all businesses but it is especially important for hotels where customer service is the lifeblood of the business. Outstanding customer service is essential in creating new customers, retaining existing customers, and cultivating referrals for future customers. Employees who meet and exceed guest expectations are critical to a hotel's success, and it begins with the hiring process. It is imperative for HR personnel to screen for and hire people who inherently possess customer-friendly traits - empathy, warmth and conscientiousness - which allow them to serve guests naturally and authentically. Trait-based hiring means considering more than just a candidate's technical skills and background; it means looking for and selecting employees who naturally desire to take care of people, who derive satisfaction and pleasure from fulfilling guests' needs, and who don't consider customer service to be a chore. Without the presence of these specific traits and attributes, it is difficult for an employee to provide genuine hospitality. Once that kind of employee has been hired, it is necessary to empower them. Some forward-thinking hotels empower their employees to proactively fix customer problems without having to wait for management approval. This employee empowerment—the permission to be creative, and even having the authority to spend money on a customer's behalf - is a resourceful way to resolve guest problems quickly and efficiently. When management places their faith in an employee's good judgment, it inspires a sense of trust and provides a sense of higher purpose beyond a simple paycheck. The April issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some leading hotels are doing to cultivate and manage guest satisfaction in their operations.
