U.S. News Review

Sitting in northern Scottsdale — near the McCormick Ranch and Camelback golf clubs — The Scottsdale Plaza Resort has been welcoming Valley of the Sun visitors for more than 35 years. This independent property has made a name for itself as a hot convention spot thanks to its ample meeting space and its business traveler rewards program (which includes special rates, upgrades and discounts on restaurants and business center services). Even if you're not here on business, recent guests give the Scottsdale Plaza Resort a thumbs-up, citing the resort's five swimming pools and on-site spa, not to mention three outdoor whirlpools. Meanwhile, guest rooms here earn praise for their in-room minibars and flat-screen TVs; however, some guests complain about having to pay a daily resort fee.
