The best hotels in Scottsdale take advantage of the sunny weather with luxurious pools, fine dining and stunning desert settings.
At Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North, Southwestern-style casitas stand out on the 40-acre nature preserve in the foothills of Pinnacle Park. A veritable mecca for golfers, the resort grants priority tee times at Troon North's two courses, considered among the best in the world. Be sure to check out the spa, which offers desert nectar facials and moonlight massages.
Also in Scottsdale and situated at the base of picturesque Camelback Mountain, The Phoenician is a local gem with pristine golf courses, pools and a spa. Don't miss a walk through the cactus garden and get an audio tour of the hotel's $25 million collection of art, which includes French tapestries, Navajo rugs and contemporary fiber art.
And right next door sits Five-Star The Canyon Suites at the Phoenician, a resort-within-a-resort that caters to travelers with their intentions set solely on relaxing. From the plush rooms equipped with private terraces to the all-accommodating Canyon Ambassador, this intimate retreat exudes desert grandeur.
Or venture to Paradise Valley to Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain. You won't find typical Southwestern décor here. The desert chic mountain casitas have woodblock floors, glass-tiled dry bars and luxurious bathrooms with travertine marble. The multi-level spa casitas boast floor-to-ceiling windows and walk-in closets, while the spa suites have outdoor soaking tubs in case you just can't bring yourself to walk the short distance to the large infinity-edge pool.
