If Scottsdale had a couple more Hos like this one, it might be on its way to outclassing La-La Land. The hotel is pure George Jetson-Googie-midcentury swank, a cherry spot, with the kind of finger-poppin' pizzazz that cost $80 million to re-create. Ho's Cafe ZuZu aims to put you in the way-back machine, with nostalgic noshes like mac 'n' cheese, meatloaf and mashed pots, and chicken and dumplings. The results are hit or miss, but the hotel's so bleedin' hip that it makes up for the menu's occasional errors. Sort of like a V-8 '57 Chevy that gets 10 miles per gallon, but is oh-so-sweet a ride.
