Scottsdale Embassy Suites wins Hilton award after $25 million makeover

By Georgann Yara | AZCentral

The substantial commissioned oil painting of Camelback Mountain serves as the focal point of the lobby of the Embassy Suites by Hilton Scottsdale Resort. It also represents a victory for a small-business owner in a big conglomerate world.

When Valley native and real-estate veteran Mark Snyder purchased the property in 2014, he wanted it to feel distinctly Arizona despite its internationally recognizable name.

Part of this plan favored a familiarity and cozier feel in the lobby over generic ambiance. To do this, Snyder commissioned Utah artist Karl Thomas, known for his scenic renditions of natural wonders, to craft the 9-foot-by-22-foot painting of Camelback.
