Mondrian Scottsdale

Scottsdale's becoming a go-to spot for get-out-of-towners, but if even that distance gives you thumb-sucking homesickness, check out the just-opened Mondrian Scottsdale. The desert palace sports the same accoutrements as its LA sister, and between its Asia De Cuba's semi-Sunset feel and Skybar spinoff you'll feel right at home -- at least until you look out to the city lights and instead see your car getting eaten by buzzards.
