How it Ranks: Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort and Spa ranks #1 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 exclusive U.S. News list of the Best Hotels in the USA.
Our Take: Its name describes this resort perfectly: Sanctuary. And its location, lodged on the side of Camelback Mountain, seems rife with opportunities for both rejuvenation and physical activity. No wonder this hotel has seen its fare share of Hollywood heavyweights passing through its doors. Guestrooms are bright and beautiful, with exposed brick walls, deep soaking tubs, and fantastic views. But for most travelers, Sanctuary's highlights are located outside the rooms. Guests lounge in (or by) the infinity pool and watch their worries drop off the edge of the world. And for an extra dose of pampering, travelers head straight to the resort spa, which boasts a bevy of Asian-inspired treatments. The star treatment continues at Elements, the hotel's famous restaurant run by Chef Beau MacMillan. And although Sanctuary does charge a $20-per-night resort fee (to cover parking and Internet access) on top of the general room rate, most guests felt that was a reasonable amount to pay.
