Where to Stay in Phoenix and Scottsdale

With so many luxurious choices, which one will you choose?

You can’t swing a club around Scottsdale and Phoenix without hitting a sumptuous resort, many of which boast more than 18 holes of golf. The JW Marriotts at Desert Ridge and Camelback have 36, as do Talking Stick, the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess (pictured below) and We-Ko-Pa.


The most elegant of Talking Stick Resort’s six restaurants, Orange Sky features more than 300 wines with which to pair its award-winning cuisine and stunning sunsets. Orange Sky and its O Lounge perch on the resort’s top floor, directly above its 13,000-square-foot, open-air spa and in full view of the resort’s two golf courses.


JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge boasts four acres of fun water features, as well as the luxe 28,000-square-foot Revive Spa, seven mouthwatering restaurants and a golf course that has hosted LPGA Tour events. 

The Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia brings Southern Spain to the Southwest. The design suggests an elegant Andalusian village with vibrant archways and fountains, a Hammam spa and antiques from Spain and Morocco.   

We-Ko-Pa Resort & Conference Center is more than the new name for the Radisson Fort McDowell. Now owned and operated by the Yavapai Nation, the 246-room resort will feature more stay-and-play options with the golf course of the same name (pictured below).


With 740 suites, 18 holes of Arthur Hills-designed golf, seven exhilarating acres of private waterpark fun, six unique dining venues and a fully equipped spa and fitness center, the Arizona Grand Resort & Spa wants for nothing.
