U.S. News Review

The Waste Management Phoenix Open, a popular PGA tournament, puts the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess in the spotlight once a year, taking over the resort's two golf courses. Yet guests believe this palatial resort deserves the fanfare year-round. They rave about the spacious guest rooms adorned in earthy hues and equipped with deep-soaking tubs, wet bars and private patios or balconies overlooking the desert landscape. This expansive (and expensive) property in North Scottsdale also boasts five massive pools and a full-service spa. Meanwhile, the Fairmont's multiple restaurants cater to a wide variety of tastes. Carnivores can get their fix at Chef Michael Mina's BOURBON STEAK, while spicier palates can indulge in some of Arizona's best Mexican fare at La Hacienda by Richard Sandoval.

Critic Reviews

Travel + Leisure

“Rooms and suites in muted tones are situated in low-lying buildings around the property, and many feature Southwest accents including art by local designers.”


“Designed to conjure up images of the journey to Havasu Canyon, [the spa] includes a rooftop swimming pool and a large hot tub in a grotto below the pool. Because this is one of the largest spas in the Valley, you stand a better chance of getting last-minute reservations.”
