    Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort and Spa

    #1 in Best Hotels in Scottsdale, Phoenix
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2037 reviewsTripAdvisor (2037)

    Its name describes this resort perfectly: Sanctuary. And its location, lodged on the side of Camelback Mountain, is rife with opportunities for both rejuvenation and physical activity. No wonder this hotel has seen its fare share of Hollywood heavyweights passing through its doors. Guest rooms are bright and beautiful, with exposed, whitewashed brick walls, deep soaking tubs and panoramic views. But for most travelers, Sanctuary's highlights are located outside the rooms. Guests lounge in (or by) the infinity pool and watch their worries drop off the edge of the world. And for an extra dose of pampering, travelers head straight to the resort spa, which boasts a bevy of Asian-inspired treatments. Visitors can also sip a variety of cocktails made from premium liquor and local ingredients at Jade Bar before enjoying a meal at Elements, the hotel's restaurant run by chef Beau MacMillan. And although Sanctuary does charge a $30 resort fee per night (to cover parking and internet access, among other amenities) on top of the general room rate, many guests weren't fazed by the extra cost.

    The Phoenician, A Luxury Collection Resort, Scottsdale 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 are 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. And 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 an 18-hole championship golf course, a tennis complex, a full-service spa and plenty of restaurants, lounges and snack bars. And did we mention the massive art collection on-site? Should you think that all of this is out of your price range (resort and parking fees are expensive as well), you can cut costs by using the Marriott Bonvoy loyalty program.

    Travelers willingly travel to the sprawling desert landscape of Pinnacle Peak (in the far reaches of North Scottsdale) for the signature service and luxurious accommodations that only a Four Seasons can provide, not to mention the property's two championship golf courses. It's exactly the type of seclusion that previous guests had been seeking. The accommodations garner high praise for their comfortable furnishings and high-class amenities, which include a private patio with an adobe-style gas fireplace. And though the resort feels remote, travelers say that you'll find plenty to do here: Spend your days lounging by the pool, working up a sweat on the tennis courts or being pampered at the spa. Meanwhile, recent visitors describe the fare at the four on-site restaurants as delicious.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 4031 reviewsTripAdvisor (4031)
    Free WiFi

    The Waste Management Phoenix Open, a popular PGA tournament, puts the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess in the spotlight once a year and takes over the resort's two golf courses. Yet guests believe this palatial resort deserves the fanfare year-round. They rave about the spacious guest rooms, which are adorned in earthy hues and equipped with soaking bath tubs, wet bars and private patios or balconies overlooking the desert landscape. This expansive property in Scottsdale also boasts six pools, some of which include waterslides, along with a full-service spa. Meanwhile, the Fairmont's multiple restaurants cater to a wide variety of tastes. Carnivores can get their fix at BOURBON STEAK, while spicier palates can indulge in some of Arizona's best Mexican fare at La Hacienda by Richard Sandoval.

    Royal Palms Resort and Spa
    Phoenix, AZ
    #6 in Best Hotels in Scottsdale, Phoenix
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1896 reviewsTripAdvisor (1896)
    Free WiFi

    The Royal Palms Resort and Spa has drawn many a VIP – including President George W. Bush back in 2004 – because of its intimate, luxurious atmosphere. Guest rooms here look as if they belong in an elite Southwestern estate, boasting vibrant, jewel-toned decor and deep-soaking tubs. Depending on when you visit, the property's pool area can feel a bit crowded (and snagging a lounge chair can be difficult), but it provides much-needed respite from the blazing Arizona heat. The open-air Alvadora Spa is also nice, offering wellness classes as well as a long list of treatments. Meanwhile, the outdoor dining area at T. Cook's provides a nice ambiance for the restaurant's bold flavors. Located in the Camelback Corridor, this resort is just a short drive from Old Town Scottsdale and downtown Phoenix. Royal Palms Resort and Spa is also a member of the Hyatt family, so Hyatt rewards club members can redeem or use points by choosing to stay here.

    Boulders Resort & Spa, Curio Collection by Hilton

    Free WiFi

    The guest rooms, or casitas, at the Boulders Resort & Spa, Curio Collection by Hilton in Scottsdale, Arizona (roughly 32 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 massive on-site spa. And because of the resort's ties to Hilton Hotels, members of the Hilton Honors loyalty program can use points to pay for rooms – that means additional cash to invest in massages and facials.

    Mixing Spanish influences with the surrounding Sonoran Desert, the Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia offers luxury befitting of any continent. Nestled in the heart of Paradise Valley, this member of the Omni hotels family resides at the base of the scenic Camelback Mountain. A stay here is certainly a break from the daily grind — the property is a bit removed from the hustle and bustle of Phoenix and Scottsdale. However, many travelers say they had no problem with staying on-site; the resort boasts a wealth of activities, from yoga classes to happy hours to guided hikes. When you need to unwind, soak up the rays by one of the resort's three pools or book a treatment at the Joya Spa. For many visitors, the highlight of their accommodations was the in-room private patio or balcony — If you can, request a room overlooking the mountain for the best views. And though you may be far from the culinary hot spots of downtown Phoenix and Old Town Scottsdale, you're sure to enjoy the contemporary Spanish fare served at the resort's award-winning restaurant, Prado.

    Free WiFi

    Visitors of the Hotel Valley Ho enjoy the hotel's trendy ambiance. Having originally opened in 1956, this chic hotel has been Old Town Scottsdale's hip lodging spot for more than half a century. The Preferred Lifestyle property's exciting atmosphere and friendly customer service immediately caught the eyes and ears of travelers, but the hotel's retro style, which features bright colors and vintage furniture, is what ultimately stole guest's hearts. In addition to impeccable decor, guest rooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows and private patios or balconies, as well as flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi access and morning bars with complimentary coffee. If you're looking to mix and mingle with fellow chic clientele, head to one of two on-site pools or plan to attend the evening happy hour at ZuZu, which serves up seasonal American fare and late afternoon libations. And remember, if you're a member of the Preferred-affiliated iPrefer Hotel Rewards loyalty program, you can earn or redeem points while staying here.

    Sandwiched between Mummy and Camelback mountains, the JW Marriott Scottsdale Camelback Inn Resort & Spa is a great place to catch a glimpse of the Valley of the Sun at its finest.

    Although the Valley of the Sun's big-name resorts draw large numbers, visitors who prefer a more intimate experience should bed down at The Hermosa Inn. With standard hacienda-style rooms starting at 350 square feet, this boutique hotel can host both couples and families comfortably. Guests appreciate the friendly, relaxed and livable environment created by both the cozy accommodations and small staff. LON's, the hotel's acclaimed Southwestern-style restaurant, attracts Phoenix natives and visitors alike. But here's the real kicker: This hotel might seem tucked away in the quiet suburb of Paradise Valley, but it's actually in a central location that's convenient to many of Phoenix's best-loved sites, like Camelback Mountain.

    Located in Gainey Ranch (a verdant part of Scottsdale known for its palm trees), the Hyatt Regency exudes a tropical-oasis-meets-Aztec-palace feel. Although guest rooms are spacious and chic  boasting flat-screen TVs, iPod docking stations and private patios or balconies  it's the 10 pools and man-made beach that garner the most praise from recent visitors. Numerous and varied, this Hyatt's swim spots cater to visitors of every age: Some have cascading waterfalls, others have fountains, but if you'd rather stay dry, opt for a gondola ride along the waterways. Though it may take some coaxing to lure yourself (or your travel buddies) away from the pool, guests also recommend playing a round of golf at the Gainey Ranch Golf Club, or indulging in a massage at Spa Avania. Then, cap off the day with dinner at one of several on-site eateries.

And though you're able to easily plug-in from tthe real world from your room, amenities such as LCD TVs, marble baths and pillow-top mattresses will entice you to completely disconnect. Guests describe accommodations here as comfortable, though some note that the decor feels a little dated. Regardless, many report the service to be exceptional.
