Scottsdale is well known for great golf, shopping, dining, and of course, some of the most posh hotels in the Southwest.
One of the best hotels in Scottsdale is the Hyatt Regency Resort and Spa at Gainey Ranch. The large property is beautifully landscaped with native desert flora, palms and flowers, and most guest rooms have private patios. The resort also boasts a championship golf course, full-service spa, several restaurants and bars, and a lake complete with gondolas.
If you're in town for business, check out the Hyatt Place Scottsdale. The guestrooms are spacious and comfortable, and the hotel offers numerous amenities for a stay that is both productive and relaxing. Guests on the go will appreciate the 24-hour pantry stocked with quick snacks and drinks, a 24-hour business center and a nice pool area for after-hours relaxation.
When you need to get away from it all, head to Sanctuary on Camelback. The boutique hotel resort overlooks Paradise Valley, giving guests unrivaled city and mountain views. The hotel is also home to Sanctuary Spa, an Asian-inspired oasis of calm.
For a chic downtown stay, head to the Hotel Valley Ho, which has been charming visitors since the swinging '60s. The hotel has a uniquely retro mid-century vibe, a lively pool scene, and great service to boot.
