I actually stayed at the Valley Ho for a week last month. It is a fantastic hotel and they have done an amazing job of restoring and renovating it. When you consider that less than 10 years ago, people were renting rooms by the hour there, it really is an amazing transformation. If you have the chance, I would highly recommend getting out to Taliesin West for one of the photography tours. It's an amazing place and has definitely inspired me...

Also, while staying at the Valley Ho... do yourself a favor and be sure to order some Macaroni and Cheese at ZuZu... it is phenomenal!

Trader Vic's is located on the Hotel's grounds. It is definitely a fun place to enjoy some Tiki goodness.

Also, be sure to head up to the second floor above the lobby at Valley Ho. They have some great photos from the 50s of various members of the Rat Pack, Marilyn Monroe and many other Hollywood types hanging out at the hotel. It's a great bit of nostalgia for a Hotel that deserves all the praise one can heap on it!
