Senna House Hotel to debut in Old Town Scottsdale

Posted

Old Town Scottsdale is the setting for high-end hospitality as the newest hotel staple, Senna House, opens to the public in the entertainment district on Wednesday, Dec. 15.

The newest hotel in the district since W Scottsdale’s debut in 2008, according to a press release, Senna House will be Arizona’s first “purpose-built, soft-branded hotel,” with luxury amenities, entertainment and chef-driven dining options.

Senna House Scottsdale, said to be crafted as a “uniquely branded boutique hotel concept” steeped in Scottsdale history, was entitled and developed by Phoenix-based investment and development firm Opwest Partners with Argosy Real Estate Partners.

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 Don & Charlie’s restaurant, according to a press release.

“We are pleased to debut Senna House Scottsdale, which brings an authentic blend of desert modern design and lifestyle luxury hospitality to downtown Scottsdale,” says Tyler Kent, Opwest Partners managing principal, in a prepared statement.

“We 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.”

The inside features living walls with what is described as “sustainable succulents, luxe mixed media interiors, contrasting finishes and a home-away-from-home desert vibe,” designed by interior design specialists Studio 11 and House of Form.

At the center is Cala, a chef-driven Mediterranean coastal concept for Senna House guests and local foodies that will open in early 2022, the release noted.

Upstairs, Senna House’s Sonora Swim Club overlooks Camelback Road and downtown Scottsdale, the release said, describing Scottsdale views of Camelback Mountain and the city’s skyline alongside an outdoor cocktail bar.

Guests and visitors can enjoy the Swim Club pool, the release noted.

In addition to upgraded standard rooms, Senna House’s suites include The Winfield Suites featuring 570 square-feet of Old Town Scottsdale views, overlooking the entertainment district and cityscapes.

The Pinnacle Suites features 730 square-feet of space, a separate parlor and private bedroom and a corner window showing Camelback Mountain, Red Mountain, Superstition Mountain, Four Peaks and Old Town Scottsdale in one view.

“Experiences are the core of what Senna House will seek to deliver,” Kent says.  “We’re stripping the pretense and offering distilled authenticity of what Scottsdale is—uncompromising sophistication, best-in-class service, an enviable dining scene and elevated experiences that bring the urban desert to life.”

    Mayor Ortega hopes to down zone Old Town Scottsdale. If he has his way, developers will be restricted to 1980s zoning concepts.

    The Yaris hope to up zone Old Town Scottsdale to a level few of us really comprehend. If they have their way they might finally knock down that dilapidated and boarded up hotel and pancake house on 5th Avenue.

    Today there is absolutely no standardized concept for building new stuff or boarding up old stuff.

    The Old Town Scottsdale Character Area Plan needs to be a killer concept. But I doubt that is the future for Old Town.
