U.S. News Review

Royal Palms Resort and Spa has drawn many a VIP — including President George W. Bush back in 2004 — because of its intimate, luxurious atmosphere. Guest rooms here look as if they belong in an elite Southwestern estate, boasting vibrant, jewel-toned decor, deep soaking tubs and hand-selected furnishings. Depending on when you visit, the property's pool area can feel a bit crowded (and snagging a lounge chair can be difficult), but it provides much-needed respite from the blazing Arizona heat. The open-air Alvadora Spa is also nice; the outdoor rain shower eliminates any stress that visitors might bring with them. Meanwhile, the outdoor dining area at T. Cooks provides a nice ambiance for the restaurant's bold flavors. Located in the Camelback Corridor, this Destination Resort is just a short drive from Old Town Scottsdale and downtown Phoenix.
