We got a serious case of job envy last year when the Ritz-Carlton South Beach circulated a new job posting: a tanning butler whose sole job was to “roam the pool and beach area and lather up any guests who need some SPF or tanning oil.” Now it looks like W Hotels has joined the fray, with a new Tanning Concierge Service available to guests in Scottsdale. The concierge’s mission? To “deliver all things SPF” and ensure that guests are burn-free and beautifully bronzed.
While chilling out in this sultry Southwest oasis (W Scottsdale’s WET rooftop pool deck’s is a sun-seeker’s paradise), guests can take advantage of this complimentary service. The tanning concierge is on call to deliver sun care tips, dole out the best sunscreens, or book an appointment for a quick in-room organic airbrush tan. After getting prepped by the tanning concierge, stake your claim to one of the daybeds, then cool off with a dip in the pool. (You’ll dig the underwater tunes.) W Scottsdale’s Tanning Concierge can be reached 24/7 for appointments or sun care tips at [email protected] and at the hotel's Whatever/Whenever desk.
