Four Seasons.....comfort


The lobby of the Four Seasons resort is decidedly Southwestern Style with lots of leather and big pillows.  There was even a fire burning in that fireplace which surprised me since the temperature outside was right at the 100 (38c) mark when I was there.


I spent a lot of time admiring the artwork around the facilities.  Almost all of the paintings were of the plant life found in the desert and since I enjoy taking photos of the very same vegetation, it was wonderful to see these almost photo-like paintings.


I was tempted to sit for a while in one of these big, comfy chairs but, I kept on moving around the next corner.  I'll have a few more photos tomorrow.

I have never been there. It seems rather decadent to have a fireplace going when it is 100 degrees outside. But it is a Four Seasons, after all. Maybe they should call it Seasonal Denial.

Looks like a cool place, cool as in not 38c!

Beautiful decor.

What fun to go there. I find this to be a signature place for the Phoenix area. Want to stay there!

Lovely place and a wonderful addition to the Phoenix resort market.

Only in America would you have a fireplace going when it was 100 degrees outside! Too funny!

This place is lush and plush and I'm afraid I would have had to sit awhile in those comfy chairs!

BTW, did you mean to say "Raiders of the Last Ark" 'cause that's pretty funny! :)

Must admit I would have been tempted to sit awhile in one of those comfy leather chairs Sharon.. the decor is like the outside, perfectly suited to its environment.

Great looking place, I have seen fireplaces on in the heat of the summer. I guess " the look" is valuable no matter the cost of the elec. bill.

Looks nice and comfortable. I don't think I would like to see a fire in the fireplace when it's so hot outside though.

Randy said...

Very nice. Love the paintings too.

Looks like a beautiful place, both outside and in -- which I guess is to be expected for a Four Seasons. I think they need to put that fire out, though. That's a little ridiculous when it's 100 degrees outside.
