Peek Inside The Luxury Arizona Hotel 10 Years In The Making


The Global Ambassador room with bed, wood nightstands and sconces with artwork above the headboard

They say good things come to those who wait, and The Global Ambassador has been worth its nearly 10 years of planning. Located at the intersection of Phoenix, Scottsdale and Paradise Valley, the 141-room hotel is the vision of restaurateur Sam Fox.

Guests will be able to drink in views of Camelback Mountain from the rooftop restaurant, engage in a little bonhomie at the Parisian steakhouse and unwind at an ultra-luxe wellness center. Private memberships are available for amenities and access to an exclusive restaurant and bar, but it’s the design details that will make visitors want to linger.

Fabric wallcoverings and custom walnut millwork lend a residential feel to the guest rooms, which also feature handmade leather accents alongside artwork by local artist Michael Carson. Arizona has officially gone global.
