Even though Frank Lloyd Wright isn’t the architect of record for Phoenix’s most famous resort, it’s easy to jump to that conclusion upon seeing his signature imprints throughout the Arizona Biltmore. Wright consulted with credited architect Albert Chase McArthur before the 1929 grand opening, and the lobby is still chockablock with Wright’s special brand of masonry work, called textile block construction. A stained glass window designed by Wright as a Liberty magazine cover was crafted by Taliesin students, then installed during 1973 renovations. Also on the premises are geometric sprite statues by sculptor Alfonso Ianelli, who created the famous works for Wright’s 1915 Chicago Midway Gardens. A member of the prestigious Waldorf=Astoria collection, the resort is still the place to see and be seen in Phoenix. Daily tours include thorough information about nearly every luminary to pass through its fabled doors, from Marilyn Monroe and Muhammad Ali, to Irving Berlin and Steven Spielberg. Be sure to sign up even if you don’t book into this inimitable landmark.
