The Best Places to Stay in Scottsdale

Here's our guide to Scottsdale's best luxury hotels

In the heart of Arizona's desert landscape lies Scottsdale, a city where luxury meets nature's raw beauty. Many of Scottsdale's hotels combine the elegance of luxury resorts with the natural tranquility of the Sonoran Desert. You can expect sweeping desert views from your balcony.

Enjoy Scottsdale's year-round sunshine within the sprawling grounds of the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess or the Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North. These high-end resorts offer plenty of opportunities to indulge - whether through a round of golf amidst desert landscapes or a pampering session in the spas.

The JW Marriott Scottsdale Camelback Inn Resort & Spa offers a blend of Southwestern charm and luxury, featuring a celebrated spa and championship golf, one of the most popular Scottsdale pastimes. Nearby, The Westin Kierland Resort & Spa sits on 250 acres, providing a modern desert oasis with top-tier golf, dining, and a rejuvenating spa.

Scottsdale's hotels don't just cater to the grandest of budgets. The city's mid-range boutique accommodations, like Hotel Adeline and Senna House capture the essence of Scottsdale - a blend of the contemporary with the warmth of Southwestern hospitality. You won't need to max out the credit card, either.

With its lush landscaping and Caribbean-American cuisine, The Scott is one of the best hotels in town. Meanwhile, the Hilton North Scottsdale at Cavasson offers breathtaking views of the McDowell Mountains and large, well-appointed rooms.
