How it Ranks: Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort and Spa at Gainey Ranch ranks #9 out of 597 Phoenix Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews. The hotel scored high enough to make the U.S. News list of the Best Hotels in Phoenix.
Our Take: Any place where you can take an evening gondola ride in Arizona is worth checking out. Located in posh Gainey Ranch—a verdant part of Scottsdale known for its hundreds of palm trees—the Hyatt Regency exudes a tropical-oasis-meets-Aztec-palace feel. Although guestrooms are spacious and chic—boasting flat-screen TVs, iPod docking stations, and private patios or balconies—it's the on-site pools that garner the most praise from recent visitors. Numerous and varied, the Hyatt Regency's swim spots cater to visitors of every age: One has a sandy beach, some have cascading waterfalls, others are adults-only. If you'd rather stay dry, opt for a gondola ride along the waterways. Though it may take some coaxing to lure yourself (or your travel buddies) away from the pool, guests also recommend playing a round of golf at the 27-hole championship Gainey Ranch Golf Club, or indulging in a massage at the Spa Avania. Then, cap off the day with dinner at one of several on-site eateries. And because the property is a member of the expansive Hyatt Hotels & Resorts clan, Gold Passport® holders can use their rewards points here.
