Get in gear with Mercedes-Benz at Four Seasons Scottsdale

ake the top down and explore Arizona behind the wheel of a Mercedes-Benz E350 Cabriolet, while experiencing the new Open Road package at Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North.

“What better way to discover Arizona’s natural beauty than from the vantage point of a Mercedes-Benz convertible?” says General Manager Vince Parrotta. “Our exclusive partnership with Mercedes-Benz USA allows guests the chance to take these luxurious vehicles for a spin while experiencing our beautiful state.”

Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North is making a fleet of Mercedes-Benz vehicles available to guests as the newest luxury property to join the Mercedes-Benz Hotel and Test Drive Program, which extends the experience of travelling in style and luxury at home to vacation properties. The Open Road package provides guests with luxurious one-bedroom suite accommodations, use of one of the Resort’s Mercedes-Benz E350 Cabriolets, a customised welcome amenity and choice of specialised Arizona driving itinerary, inclusive of a gourmet picnic lunch.

Enjoy a “Red Rocks Rendezvous” excursion to majestic Sedona, cruising carefree from the Resort along I-17. Select the “Ooh la Olive” route and take a lazy drive to the small town of Queen Creek and sample specialty olive oils at locally owned and operated Queen Creek Olive Mill. Opt for the “Pass to Prescott” outing and explore the quaint shops of Whiskey Row and breathe in the fresh pine-scented air. For heightened adventure, add in a detour to Jerome, navigating hairpin turns and climbing to this mountaintop, artist-focused town.

The motto of the E-Cabriolet is “four seasons, four people,” because several features ensure four-season, open-top driving fun including an electric AIRCAP® wind deflector that at the touch of a button greatly reduces wind turbulence inside the vehicle’s cabin while creating a pool of warm air around the occupants. Another feature, AIRSCARF® heating system is integrated into the front seat backrests, which blows warm air from adjustable vents in the head restraints to warm the neck and shoulder area like an invisible scarf.


The Open Road package is valid until December 31, 2011.
