The Wigwam Set to Debut Comprehensive Renovation

The Wigwam, just outside of Phoenix, AZ, is embarking on a multimillion-dollar renovation, breathing new life into its grounds and room and suite interiors. Providing almost a century of service, The Wigwam is known for its southwestern-style casitas, pools, family-friendly amenities, and golf courses, two of which were designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr. The comprehensive renovation begins this spring and is set to debut in fall 2023.

The resort-wide renovation will include a complete interior refresh to elevate its casitas, suites and two presidential suites. What to expect? Carpeted floors will be replaced with luxury vinyl tile and geometric rugs, and artwork will both pay homage to the role that the Goodyear Tire Company played in the property’s history. Guestrooms and suites at The Wigwam range from 480 to 5,000 square feet and each room opens onto an expansive private patio overlooking pools, gardens, tennis courts or golf courses. Azure tiled walls and oil-rubbed bronze accents, along with new double vanities, and mirrors with dimmer-controlled lighting will enhance each of the guest bathrooms.

The comprehensive upgrades will be phased in to minimize disruptions to guests.

In addition to the complete interior refresh, The Wigwam will also undergo extensive improvements to its grounds, which span over 440 acres. Guests walking to and from The Wigwam’s three pools, nine tennis courts, three golf courses, meeting spaces, spa and four restaurants will be greeted with century-old cacti, native plants and seasonal desert blooms. The Wigwam will continue improvements into next year.

Originally built by the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company as a gathering place in 1918, The Wigwam has remained a cornerstone of the West Valley for travelers, businesses and families since its founding as a resort in 1929.
