For the best hotels in Phoenix, try The Ritz-Carlton, Phoenix; Royal Palms Resort and Spa or Sheraton Wild Horse Pass Resort & Spa. Located near some of the best shopping and restaurants in the city in the middle of Camelback Corridor, The Ritz-Carlton, Phoenix wows with striking views of Piestewa Peak and luxurious service. The rooms, classically decorated with beds topped with luxury Egyptian cotton linens, all have views of the skyline or the Squaw Peak Mountain Range. To take in the sun, go outside to the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel’s heated pool and the sundeck area, which is cooled with hydro-misters.
At the base of Camelback Mountain, you’ll find Four-Star Royal Palms Resort and Spa, a boutique hotel option. You’ll forget you’re in the desert, amid Royal Palms’ lush gardens, palm trees, Spanish Colonial-style buildings, Mediterranean-inspired guest rooms and mother-of-pearl-tiled pool. But the reliably hot desert weather gives you a good excuse to visit the hotel’s open-air Alvadora Spa for one of its plant-inspired treatments.
Head 15 miles outside of Phoenix to Chandler, home of Forbes Travel Guide Recommended Sheraton Wild Horse Pass Resort & Spa. The resort offers two 18-hole golf courses, an equestrian center, four pools, Four-Star Aji Spa and more. But the don’t-miss amenity is the excellent Kai Restaurant, which focuses on innovative Native American cuisine.
