Around The Resort
At the Westin Kierland Resort & Spa, we celebrate the rich legacy of Arizona. Our hallways and grounds pay tribute to the people and landscape that have shaped the state’s cultural heritage.
As you explore the Resort, you will see descriptive plaques written by the state’s official historian Marshall Trimble that share the details of Arizona’s rich history and those who had an important role in shaping it. Discovery Hall, Expedition Hall and Visionaries Hall are named as such to honor those who created the Essence of Arizona, from river explorers like John Wesley Powell to Native American tribal chiefs and heads of state. With these efforts, we hope to carry on the spirit of those who came before us – visionaries who made Arizona what it is today.
Rare photographs, an ever-changing collection of paintings and commissioned artworks are prominently displayed throughout the elegant hallways and venues, capturing the wondrous essence of Arizona for all to enjoy. A self-guided walking tour is available to lead you through the areas of the Resort that showcase our state’s incredible history.

THE OK CORRAL
The OK Corral also offers a seating area with tables and open space that’s perfect for activities with the Westin Kierland FUN team such as water balloon games, hula hoop contests, limbo, relay races and more. In the evening, the area’s fit pit is the place to be for “Kierland Kampfires” and Arizona S’mores.
Enjoy cocktails and appetizers from Waltz & Weiser Saloon served in the courtyard while watching the evening sunset and listening to the sounds of Master Bagpiper Michael McClanathan. In keeping with the resort’s “Essence of Arizona” theme, the Scottish Pipes at Sunset Series pays tribute to the contributions made by Scottish immigrants to the state’s railroads, mines and towns.
