The identity of the Rat Pack – that group of 1950s and 1960s singers, actors and troublemakers — is synonymous with the desert. From Las Vegas to Palm Springs, the joke-cracking and hard-drinking team of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., and company did their best work around the sands. Pun intended.

The Arizona Biltmore, a Waldorf Astoria resort set in the Valley of the Sun, recently introduced the Destination Debonair package. They call it “a contemporary gentlemen’s escape inspired by the classic gentlemen of the Rat Pack.”


While no resort can fully condone everything and everyone the Rat Pack got into back in the day, this new booking opportunity tries to hit all of the other necessary highlights. Here’s how you set it up in Arizona:

First, you round up three more guys willing to get into trouble with you. Once you all throw in for the $2499 per night rate on a three-night minimum, you head to PHX. Upon arrival, resort staff slaps a dirty Grey Goose martini into your hand. From there, you and yours enjoy…
