Courtyard Scottsdale Salt River

First Marriott on US Tribal Land

  • 1-480-745-8200

As the first Marriott-branded hotel on U.S. tribal land, we take great pride in preserving the culture of the local Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian community. Discover the tribe's rich history throughout our Scottsdale, Arizona, hotel's design and décor.


Capturing the Community

The work of prominent Native American photographer Anthony "Thosh" Collins, a member of the Pima-Maricopa Indian community, is featured throughout our hotel.

"Designed to provide a deeper insight of what the community looks like and the beauty it has to offer, the Salt River photos are representative of O'o-dham Jevad or 'the land on which we live,'" Collins says.

The artwork presents a great opportunity for guests who can't get out to explore the area to take a tour of our Scottsdale lodging and appreciate the culture.

Discover Culture in the Details

  • Guest rooms at our Scottsdale, Arizona, hotel feature custom artwork, cactus skeleton replicas and window coverings with designs inspired by the plant material used to make Pima baskets.
  • Hallway and meeting room carpets are woven with a Pima basket design called coyote claw print, which can also be seen on the exterior of our Salt River hotel.
  • A mural depicting the traditional Pima ceremonial basket dance hangs behind the business center. Traditionally, the mating dance was an opportunity for young women to show off the intricacy of their designs-an indicator of patience and hard work-to men and their mothers. The ceremony was performed at Red Mountain, the community's most sacred landmark, which is visible from the upper floors of the hotel's east wing.
  • Display cases in the conference center foyer feature Maricopa red pottery on loan from the Huhugam Ki Museum and Pima baskets on loan from a private collector.
  • Four glass bird chandeliers-inspired by the Pima and Maricopa community's reverence for birds-hang in the Eagle Mark Ballroom of our Scottsdale wedding venue. The bald eagle has three nesting locations in the area, and hotel developers took it as a sign to build on the site when they saw one land on an adjacent rooftop.
  • Two "rivers" at the hotel entrance represent the Salt and Verde rivers, which once sustained the Pima and Maricopa community. They merge into one, symbolizing the coming together of the two tribes.
