The Global Ambassador

Every aspect of The Global Ambassador has been carefully curated under Fox’s guidance in collaboration with Judith Testani of Testani Design Troupe, who has contributed her design expertise to many of Fox’s establishments, offices and even his family residence.

The 141 guest rooms at The Global Ambassador exude residential charm, seamlessly blending functionality with beauty. Every detail of the guest spaces has been meticulously designed to provide a truly extraordinary experience for travelers: oak hardwood flooring, sumptuous fabric wall coverings, bespoke walnut millwork, Waterworks bathroom fixtures and an impressive minibar. The highlight of each room is the private Juliet Balcony, offering breathtaking views of Camelback Mountain and the serene Arizona landscape.

To adorn the guest room walls, Fox collaborated with Arizona-based artist Michael Carson, whose work he has been personally collecting for 15 years. Additionally, Fox is excited about his partnership with Kelly Croteau of Maison Plage, who is curating an exclusive selection of distinctive books throughout the property. Renowned for curating libraries in private residences, these carefully chosen volumes span various realms, including style, design, photography, art and fashion. Similarly, the skilled artisans at Billykirk are adding handmade leather accents to each room, enhancing the overall sense of luxury.

Bookings for The Global Ambassador start at $650 per night.
