Romance comes easy at the Royal Palms Resort and Spa in Scottsdale, which has been named one of the country's most romantic resorts by several top travel publications. The luxurious hotel resort has even coined a term to describe the kind of starry-eyed stay couples can expect at the Royal Palms: a "romantication."
What makes the Royal Palms so romantic? It's in the details. The hotel staff works hard to set the mood for love by providing guests with rose-petal turn-downs, love notes, couples' massages at the Alvadora Spa. The staff will even help make arrangements for private plane rides or mountaintop proposals.
Another Scottsdale hotel that is a destination for romance is the historic Hermosa Inn (featured in the movie "Waiting to Exhale"). This boutique hotel, tucked away in the highly desirable Paradise Valley neighborhood, was once the home and studio of Western artist Lon Megargee. Today, the private suites are warmly and elegantly appointed with Southwestern furnishings and antiques. Plan on enjoying a long, leisurely couples' brunch at Lon's, the hotel's acclaimed restaurant.
If you and your significant other want to enjoy the heart of Scottsdale's urban center, book a room at the always-fashionable Hotel Valley Ho. This mid-century gem is the place to see and be seen. Stake out a poolside cabana, order a drink from award-winning Cafe Zuzu, and enjoy some sunshine-filled downtime with your sweetie.
If you're looking for a more intimate stay in the heart of Old Town Scottsdale, book a room at the Bespoke Inn. The small, four-room inn offers unique comforts in a perfect location, just steps from Scottsdale restaurants, galleries and shopping. Plus, the inn is home to one of the city's best restaurants, Virtu Honest Craft.
