Arizona Biltmore Hotel Review


The Arizona Biltmore is A Waldorf Astoria Resort that has been a Phoenix Icon since 1929.

This luxurious resort features architecture influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright and combines history with a modern vibrant twist to create a perfect oasis in the Arizona desert. There are comfortably elegant rooms and villas, multiple delicious dining options, a world class spa and pool areas that range from adults only pure relaxation to an over the top water park complete with fantastic slides.



BOOKING

This property is part of the Waldorf Astoria which is the premiere luxury brand for the Hilton Hotel Portfolio. Room rates certainly reflect the quality of the product. Because this is a Hilton property, you can book with Hilton Honors points!


If you ever need extra points, I always recommend getting the Hilton Honors American Express Card (Referral Link!). This card is a no brainer for luxury Hilton properties. The signup bonus gets you enough for 2 free nights, plus the card comes with a free night to give you a total of 3 free nights! Plus the card comes with complimentary Diamond Status (top tier status for perks and upgrades) AND includes $250 property credit! See full review from our points expert!



THE PROPERTY

This property has everything you could need from a state of the art fitness center, two golf courses, seven swimming pools, 65' water slide, spa, and seven dining outlets. The entire property is well manicured and makes for an amazing getaway.



THE ROOMS

Like any Waldorf property, the luxurious hotel rooms will be second to none. The range of accommodations run the gamut from well appointed standard guest rooms to cottages that feel like home. The rooms feature lovely patios that overlook the resort and many even have personal firepits. The rooms are well appointed with luxurious amenities to the smallest details.


If you are looking for extreme opulence than you will absolutely want to check in to a Villa Bedroom which even includes a full kitchen.
