Our Take: The casitas at The Boulders Resort in Carefree, Ariz. (roughly 34 miles north of downtown Phoenix) look out over miles of cacti and rugged mountains. When you're not admiring the views from your private patio or balcony, order room service and curl up in front of your wood-burning fireplace. You can also play golf on one of two courses, lounge by one of four pools or grab a bite to eat at one of five restaurants. However, according to recent visitors, you'd be remiss if you stayed here and didn't indulge in a treatment at the Waldorf Astoria Spa. Because of the resort's ties to Waldorf Astoria (which is part of the Hilton Hotels family), members of the HHonors loyalty program can use points to pay for rooms — that means additional cash to invest in massages and facials.
