Just in time for the summer resort season, the W Scottsdale, a premier Valley hotel, has undergone a $3 million remodel that included a complete gutting of the second-floor entertainment areas surrounding the pool.

Sigma Contracting, Inc., performed the work, which involved the creation and expansion of entertainment areas surrounding the rooftop pool, including new bars and specialty seating areas.

One of the new spaces at W Scottsdale, 7277 E. Camelback Road in Scottsdale, is the Cottontail Lounge, which was designed by Cawley Architects, the architect of record. It is described as a “sophisticated space for breakfast, lunch or late-night cocktails.”

The project called for a unique and creative design with a variety of similarly unique materials to provide for an increased indoor/outdoor air-conditioned entertainment space. The remodel was required to be completed while providing continued pool access for guests. COVID-19 presented its own complications working in an environment with both guests and construction workers present.

“Sigma was excited to be part of the beautiful update to a distinctively elegant facility in Old Town Scottsdale,” said Sigma President Dan Hinkson. “This is a space that will be utilized not only by out-of-town visitors, but also by the local public as well for a variety of special events and meet-ups. We ourselves look forward to enjoying the newly-created environment.”

Notable subcontractors include Sea-Tec Electric (electrician), Universal Piping (plumbing), Envision Flooring (flooring), and MCI Woodwork (millwork).

Built in 2008 and owned by Stockdale Capital Partners, W Scottsdale features 224 guest rooms and 27 suites.
