Photograph of Phoenix's Westward Ho, surrounded by silhouetted tree branches

Westward, Ho

comment 0

An icon on downtown Phoenix’s skyline, the Westward Ho was initially a hotel when it opened back in 1928. It held the title as the tallest building in Phoenix for over 30 years. Now it’s a subsidized housing complex. And apparently haunted.

There are few photos I’ve taken of downtown Phoenix’s skyline that doesn’t feature the Westward Ho or is lurking somewhere in the image. It’s impossible to miss.

More and more newer and modern buildings are beginning to surround it. But I love how the Westward Ho remains.
