Notes about this hotel:
They are VERY interested in being the hotel to host the WPC Alumni Reunions. They can provide everything from a bare-bones experience with just a hotel room per alumni/alumni group to a fully catered and luxury experience while still being a more budget friendly option than some of the Scottsdale resorts that offer similar opportunities for a full-service experience.
Also, they have been very easy to work with and responsive to contact in the past.
