Speaking of Escapes...first Paris, and then Scottsdale. Kathryn stayed at a hip hotel in Arizona and took plenty of photos to pass on the design inspiration. The Valley Ho was built in 1956 and was fully renovated in recent years, with an eye on its Hollywood (Natalie Wood and Robert Wagner got married here) and Mid-C roots.
