Room Tour: Mountain Shadows resort in Paradise Valley, Arizona

The newly re-opened Mountain Shadows resort offers the best of three worlds. A classic heritage, cool midcentury modern design and brand new construction.

Located in the shadow of Phoenix's Camelback Mountain, adjacent to Scottsdale and 20 minutes from downtown Phoenix, the resort is again a popular getaway for those seeking fun, sun, golf, gastronomy and / or shopping.

The resort is in the appropriately named Paradise Valley, Arizona and Mountain Shadows is a brand new version of an old classic.

First opened in the Swinging 60's, the desert resort was a popular getaway for Hollywood celebrities. After a few ownership changes over the years, the resort was recently completely re-built from the ground up and re-imagined, in the same basic location as before. 

I was there as part of my Cadillac Super Cruise Super Drive in the 2018 Cadillac CT6. I had a chance to drive the CT6 from Santa Fe, through Paradise Valley to LA and use its amazing hands-free Super Cruise technology on the highways.

Here's a tour of room 153 at Mountain Shadows. I loved the loft-like feel with distressed concrete floors, high ceilings and a shower that was more a showcase, encased in glass and exposed in the center of the large room.
