This photo is taken from the front of the lobby of the hotel looking towards Camelback Mountain and the cactus botanical garden that exists below some of the hotel rooms at the base of the mountain.
The Phoenician has superb Native American statues throughout the property, like the one you see in this photo. Art is a part of the decor.
The Phoenician combines water, art, and the desert for a wonderful ambience. There is beauty in all that you see and there is quite a variety of viewscapes that you can experience, from desert to mountain to golf course.
