Iacono is known for creating innovative and immersive hospitality concepts, like delivering champagne by drone and developing compelling lifestyle experience for after-hours guests. He now brings his disruptive style to W Scottsdale, which is fresh off a bold design renovation including a WET Deck re-fresh, the opening of the new Cottontail Lounge and Café, and debut of the hotel’s AWAY Spa, featuring playful experiences like Spa After Dark and a Secret Menu exclusively accessed by VIP’s.
