Headlining Honeymoons, Part 1: Vintage Vacation


In our previous honeymoon series, we’ve tackled the history and picturesque views of Great Britain and brought you to the wilds of the jungle. But this new series is giving us the glitz and glam that we all need every once in a while.

A wedding is supposed to make a couple feel like movie stars — the most popular and beautiful people in the room. So, why wouldn’t you want that same feeling for your honeymoon?

Part 1 of our new series brings us to Scottsdale, Arizona. Hotel Valley Ho has had many a celebrity visitor – Natalie Wood and Robert Wagner even had their wedding reception here in 1957.

Hotel Valley Ho
Scottsdale, Arizona

Natalie Wood and Robert Wagner had so much fun at their wedding reception at Hotel Valley Ho in 1957, they missed their honeymoon train ride to Colorado. A place all travelers will yearn to linger, the mid-century-meets-modern hideaway in downtown Scottsdale has long been a bastion for celebrity repose. Considered one of the best preserved examples of its architectural genre in the world, the hotel exudes heyday cool. With two pools, a spa, a restaurant and bars, it ensures an ideal base to explore Scottsdale and its activities—from hiking to golf to desert excursions. Book the Executive Suite, an immense lair, with a wrap around terrace on three sides, floor-to-ceiling glass, a wet bar and a soup-bowl shaped bathtub, which anchors the bedroom. Note to pet lovers: dogs are welcome, even on your honeymoon. hotelvalleyho.com
