Scottsdale, USA
At  Westin Kierland Resort & Spa you’ve always envisioned your vacation to be perfect on every level, but never imagined a staff so accommodating and facilities so revitalizing and distinctively different. That is The Westin Kierland Resort & Spa experience. So come, wander the grounds of this desert oasis. Leave behind your hectic lifestyle to relax and renew. The AAA Four Diamond Resort features accommodations that will sooth and stimulate from a full-service spa and world-class golf to award-winning dining and upscale shopping. Intuitively designed to celebrate Arizona’s rich history and diverse culture, The Westin Kierland offers a blissful sanctuary of opportunity and ambiance. n keeping with the Resort’s “Essence of Arizona” theme, the Scottish traditions at The Westin Kierland Resort & Spa serve to pay homage to the contributions made by Scottish immigrants to the development of Arizona’s railroads, mines and towns.   The Resort pays tribute to the state’s Scottish immigrants each evening with its “Scottish Pipes at Sunset” series. Guests are encouraged to gather around the fire pit at the Dreamweavers Canyon to enjoy the Scottish bagpipes played by Master Bagpiper Michael McClanathan.   The Arizona Culturekeepers program has recognized 100 Arizonans who have made outstanding contributions to the Grand Canyon State’s history, culture, environment and economy. Working in conjunction with the Arizona Historical Foundation and under the direction of Arizona State Historian Marshall Trimball, the Westin Kierland Resort & Spa launched Culturekeepers in 2002. Each year for 10 years, the program recognized 10 individuals for their efforts to carry on the traditions, rituals and cultures of our state. While the program culminated in 2012 with Arizona’s 100th birthday, the contributions of these 100 individuals will long be recognized and celebrated by not only the Westin Kierland Resort & Spa, but by all those who treasure Arizona and its unique culture.
