With 40 acres of land, 400 guest rooms, and 180 luxury suites, Scottsdale Plaza Resort has built a solid reputation. Solidifying this reputation is a renovation to their standard rooms.

The changes include new bathtubs, larger closet and vanity areas, granite counters and more.

“In less than six months we have gone from a ranking of 61 on Trip Advisor to 16, so clearly the renovations to our standard rooms contributed to that,” says Sheryl Bettencourt, director of marketing for the resort.

Now, the resort is working on renovations to the Villa, Bi Level and Patio Suites; completion is slated for fall 2016. The updates will include new beds, matching dressers, new artwork and lighting, among others. 

Bill Von Bank, vice president of marketing and communications for Experience Rochester Minnesota Convention & Visitors Bureau and Mayo Civic Center, knows how to make a luscious pie. On summer and fall weekends, he travels to Minnesota farmers markets as Bill the Pie Guy, selling his homemade apple, blueberry, mixed berry, strawberry, rhubarb, peach, and pecan pies to hungry marketgoers—and donating the profits to hunger-relief organizations.
