Ever-evolving Old Town Scottsdale will find a renewed spirit of high-end hospitality as the newest hotel staple, Senna House, a Curio Collection by Hilton, brings desert modern sophistication to Scottsdaleâ€™s Entertainment District.
Open to the public on Wednesday, December 15, Senna House will be the newest hotel in the district since W Scottsdaleâ€™s debut in 2008. Senna House will be Arizonaâ€™s first-ever purpose-built, soft-branded hotel, bringing an energetic pulse to Scottsdale with luxury amenities, entertainment and chef-driven dining options.
Senna House Scottsdale was entitled and developed by Phoenix-based investment and development firm Opwest Partners in collaboration with Argosy Real Estate Partners, which together crafted a uniquely branded boutique hotel concept that is steeped in Scottsdale history.
With 169 rooms spanning six stories, Senna House was designed by architect Nelson Partners and built from the ground-up on the site that once housed the beloved Don & Charlieâ€™s restaurant.
â€œWe are pleased to debut Senna House Scottsdale, which brings an authentic blend of desert modern design and lifestyle luxury hospitality to downtown Scottsdale,â€ says Tyler Kent, Managing Principal at Opwest Partners. â€œWe built Senna House with new Scottsdale memories in mind. From cuisine and cocktails to accommodations and amenities, the hotel will continue the great tradition of hospitality and tourism that the property has always maintained.â€
Inside, guests will be greeted with lush living walls featuring sustainable succulents, luxe mixed media interiors, contrasting finishes and a home-away-from-home desert vibe, as designed by interior design specialists Studio 11 and House of Form.
At the center of it all is Cala, a chef-driven Mediterranean coastal concept that will delight Senna House guests and local foodies alike when it opens in early 2022.
Upstairs, Senna Houseâ€™s Sonora Swim Club overlooks Camelback Road and Downtown Scottsdale, featuring only-in-Scottsdale views of Camelback Mountain and the cityâ€™s skyline alongside a swanky outdoor cocktail bar. Guests and visitors can embrace ideal winter temperatures in the Swim Club pool, perfect for sipping and soaking the day away.
In addition to upgraded standard rooms featuring creature comforts and luxury amenities, Senna Houseâ€™s breathtaking suites bring all-encompassing views of the best Scottsdale has to offer. The Winfield Suites feature 570 square-feet of Old Town Scottsdale views, overlooking the happening Entertainment District and cityscapes. The Pinnacle Suites are truly the pinnacle of it all, featuring 730 square-feet of space, a separate parlor and private bedroom and a breathtaking corner window to take in the natural beauty of Camelback Mountain, Red Mountain, Superstition Mountain, Four Peaks and Old Town Scottsdale in one grandiose view.
â€œExperiences are the core of what Senna House will seek to deliver,â€ Kent says. â€œWeâ€™re stripping the pretense and offering distilled authenticity of what Scottsdale isâ€”uncompromising sophistication, best-in-class service, an enviable dining scene and elevated experiences that bring the urban desert to life.â€
