In conjunction with its 25th anniversary, the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess is planning to undergo an extensive, $60 million renovation that will include changes to its dining concepts, meeting spaces, exterior and interior design, and spa experience. General Manager of the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess, Jack Miller, said, “We are proud to unveil these exciting additions, which will highlight the resort’s meetings and events, spa and culinary offerings…The expanded and upgraded facilities will further establish Fairmont Scottsdale Princess as a preeminent meetings and events destination, and our cutting edge spa and wellness offerings will serve as great assets to planners and guests alike.”
For the past several years, the AAA Five-Diamond resort has been working on renovating its guests rooms and lobby, which also resulted in the unveiling of the Fairmont Gold Lounge, a kid’s clubhouse as well as a Michael Mina restaurant, Bourbon Steak, and a Richard Sandoval restaurant, La Hacienda. The second phase of additions will include the Palomino Conference Center, a 156,000 square foot space which will have both indoor and outdoor areas—patios, ballrooms, and office room included! Other additions during the second phase will include a “living wall” of plants and flowers. Once completed, it will be one of the largest living displays in the U.S., a retail bistro and coffee market, as well as a comprehensive, state-of-the-art wellness center.
Brides and grooms will relish exchanging vows inside the Southwestern Fragrance Garden, an intimate wedding venue filled with flowering trees and lush greenery which surround a large fire pit and outdoor lounges areas complete with couches and retractable sun shades. The shades will keep guests cool in the summer so that the outdoor space and beautiful desert vistas can still be enjoyed. Renovations are scheduled to be complete in the spring of 2013.
