U.S. News Review

The Phoenician has long set the standard for luxury in the Valley of the Sun. It's not hard to see why. For one thing, the setting is unbelievable — when reserving your room, ask for accommodations with views of Camelback Mountain. Even if those all booked, recent visitors say that you won't be too disappointed, as all rooms feature elegant furnishings, Italian marble bathrooms and private balconies or patios. (If you're looking for a little more space, opt to stay in one of the elegant Canyon Suites.) This 250-acre Luxury Collection property also boasts a 27-hole championship golf course, a tennis complex, a full-service spa and plenty of restaurants, lounges and snack bars. And did we mention the $25 million art collection on-site? Should you think that all of this is out of your price range, you can cut costs by using the Starwood Preferred Guest loyalty program to help pick up the tab.

Critic Reviews


“The massive property makes a striking first impression, with its lush green landscaping, waterfalls, koi ponds, and palms set against a rugged backdrop. Meanwhile, communal interiors have an old-world luxury appeal with marble floors and chandeliers.”


“In a town where luxurious, expensive resorts are the rule, the Phoenician still stands apart, primarily in the realm of service. ”
Award: Fodor's Choice


“The Phoenician, located at the base of Camelback Mountain, is hyper-luxurious. ... But there is no attitude here. Someone is always around to help or steer you toward one of a number of recreational opportunities, including desert hikes.”
