If you love Mad Men and vintage midcentury design as much as I do (and I love it), you'll easily fall in love with El Dorado. It's not a traditional hotel resort, which is a big part of its appeal. It's tucked away on a quiet residential street in downtown Scottsdale, just down the street from some of my favorite shops and restaurants (The Poisoned Pen bookstore; The Cornish Pasty Company). The hotel is a renovated apartment complex that has been restored to its full midcentury glory. You'll get the urge to shake yourself a martini, put some Sinatra on the record player, and lounge all day by the pool. When I visited, there was some serious construction going on and not all the units were available for rental. It was also hard to get ahold of staff to ask a question, but I guess part of the appeal is that you can come and go as you please here. If you want a break from the corporate chain hotel and resorts, it doesn't get much more unique than the El Dorado.

What was once a seasonal apartment complex for snow birds has been transformed into something simultaneously young and old. It takes a modern sensibility and turns its view on the building's mid-century past.

A lot of hotels (especially some of the bigger chains) feel like they came out of a box. This one is different. Although the rooms all have pretty similar floor plans, each one is decorated individually. It's this hand-picked dedication to detail that makes the hotel really live up to its boutique nature.

That feel extends to the grounds as well. Everywhere you look is green and inviting. Sit by the pool in their cabanas, look at the palm trees swaying above the canopy and relax. One thing I think I have to mention: there is a peacock. I repeat: there is a peacock.
One thing to keep in mind if you're coming after August: starting in September half of the hotel is going to be closed for renovations, so getting a room may be a bit tougher.

This one is different. This one is special. When looking for a unique, personal experience, I was fortunate to stumble upon the El Dorado – a garden-style boutique resort. Designers Riccardo Cattapan and Judith Testani have created an intimate, loungy environment keeping the décor honest to 1950s Phoenix. With its mid-century modern design, it’s apparent that each detail has been completely thought through. All 33 guest rooms are original with different themes and travelers can stay anywhere from one night to a few months. These condos, with one or two bedrooms, have full kitchens so you can eat, drink and be merry right in your own place. This is sure to save some money, considering the hotel stands in a charming, yet expensive, city of Scottsdale. Renovations will be complete soon and, in September, El Dorado Hotel will take you to another world. You’ll walk through a flying canopy into a garden of art and intrigue. Pick a lemon off the citrus tree, stir up a cocktail and venture into the pool area. Curl up for movie night in the El Dorado’s grassy knoll. Explore Old Town on one of their beach cruisers or grab a ride to one of the posh Scottsdale lounges with their complimentary golf car rides. El Dorado is alive with charm.

The rooms are large and spacious, big enough to live in. The kitchens are fully equipped. Downtown Old Scottsdale, you can walk to multiple restaurants, bars, shops galore! Art Museums, etc. Festivals in the street..
