The transformed Scottsdale, Arizona resort reopened in September 2015 following a $10 million renovation. It was formerly known as the Scottsdale Resort & Conference Center.
“Meeting professionals will absolutely love the beautifully transformed Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch,” said ALHI president Jim Schultenover. “The $10 million renovation touched nearly all aspects of the hotel, to bring the resort to an even higher level.”
