Which hotel was the location of Robert Wagner and Natalie Wood’s wedding reception?

If you guessed Hotel Valley Ho (1956) in Scottsdale, Arizona, you guessed correctly! In 1957, Robert Wagner and Natalie Wood held their private wedding reception in the hotel's ballroom. Wagner's parents had been regular guests at the hotel and thought the pair should be married away from the Hollywood limelight. The influx of winter visitors and tourists to Scottsdale in the mid-1950s prompted the construction of Hotel Valley Ho, which originally opened on December 20, 1956. It featured ten lush acres and 180 guestrooms of contemporary design, centered on a courtyard and pool that were frequently a hub of activity, hosting events from weddings to fashion shows. Hotel Valley Ho was the first hotel in Scottsdale to have central air-conditioning, and thus the first to be open year-round. It was also the first to employ southwestern architecture and to feature a European plan. Today, Hotel Valley Ho is now considered one of the best-preserved mid-century hotels in the country according to architect and author Alan Hess. The buildings have been completely renovated, but the hotel still retains its original character and style.
