U.S. News Review

Tucked into a quiet neighborhood in Scottsdale, the Scottsdale Resort & Conference Center earns high praise from business travelers for its extensive meeting facilities, fully stocked business center and an on-hand creative and graphic design staff. But this property isn't just for the working set: The Scottsdale Resort's Amansala Spa provides respite to weary guests. Visitors will also find four on-site restaurants, and travelers who like to golf will receive guest discounts at the adjacent McCormick Ranch Golf Club. And though you can clock in from your room, amenities such as LCD TVs, marble baths (with Gilchrist & Soames products) and pillow-top mattresses will entice you to unplug. Guests describe accommodations here as comfortable, though some note that the decor feels a little dated.
