U.S. News Review

Situated at the base of Camelback Mountain, this offshoot of The Phoenician offers spectacular views at every turn. Recent guests say they arrived at this 60-room Luxury Collection outpost expecting a high caliber of service and the exceptional staff delivered. (Because this property is part of the Starwood family, SPG members can earn or redeem points here.) The Canyon Suites all feature beds with 300-thread-count Italian linens, private terraces and floor-to-ceiling windows that flaunt views of the desert scene or golf course. Speaking of the golf greens, visitors say 27-hole championship golf course is not to be missed. If you're not in the mood to spoil a good walk, you'll have access to all of the other facilities found on grounds, such as 11 tennis courts, a full-service spa and an infinity pool with Camelback vistas (a particular guest favorite). When you need to refuel after a full day of activity, you'll have your choice of seven restaurants — three fine dining spots and four casual eateries. Recent guests recommend the Sunday brunch at Il Terrazo for its delicious three-course menu.
