Scottsdale Hotels

Scottsdale offers the best of both worlds when you're planning a vacation; not only is it a peaceful desert resort close to national parks, it also has a more lively side, with a busy cultural scene and nightlife that's the envy of many big cities. From serene golf courses to glittering casinos, Scottsdale is a great place to unwind and indulge, with world class shopping during the day, and a downtown area that's drenched in neon at night.

Things to see

Stylish and luxurious; the Scottsdale Fashion Square is an essential stop for shopping addicts, with several designer anchor stores, big brand favorites, and chic boutiques. Set over 3 floors, this bright glass paneled mall attracts the well-heeled from across Arizona and beyond, and there's an excellent selection of cafés and upmarket restaurants when you need to refuel. If you want to enjoy the sunshine, then a trip to the world class Boulders Golf Club will allow you to enjoy the warm desert air, while challenging your golf skills. Despite being in the desert there are lush greens, and the course is surrounded by huge sandy colored rocks with sand dunes and exotic cacti. Once you've played on one of the 2 full 18 hole courses, you can enjoy a round of tennis, or be pampered in the full service spa. Casino Arizona is a great spot to spend the evening, with vast rooms full of slot machines, blackjack, roulette, and poker tables. After you've tried your luck on your favorite game, you can relax in one of the lounges and sip a cocktail, or try one of the restaurants onsite. There's also a busy schedule of entertainment, from dance lessons to tribute acts, with glamorous Vegas style shows.

Hotels in Scottsdale

Scottsdale has many large resorts set in close to the city center, yet giving a private, secluded feel. You'll find luxury hotels in Scottsdale with full service spas, outdoor pools with bars, health clubs, and in-room childcare so you can be sure of a relaxing vacation. Most hotels offer free WiFi, free parking, and a complimentary breakfast to start your day, as well as services from a concierge to dry cleaning to make your stay easier. If you're on a tight budget, then the chain hotels in downtown offer an affordable rate, and you'll still enjoy comfortable rooms with extras such as cable television and free newspapers.

Where to stay

Old Town Scottsdale still has a feel of the Old West, with many of the traditional Spanish style buildings still standing. The blacksmith's workshop is still used by a skilled craftsman, and buildings such as the old school houses still have their original features, although many places have been turned into cute cafés and locally owned restaurants. Along the palm tree lined streets you'll find charming spots such as the busy farmers market and stores selling handmade jewelry and other souvenirs. Once the hot sun goes down, the area really comes to life, with a varied selection of bars, from taverns to chic cocktail spots, and busy clubs with the music going on until the small hours.

How to get to Scottsdale

Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport is a busy hub, with a huge number of domestic flights across the USA, as well as direct flights to Europe, Canada, and beyond. It's just a 20 minute drive into Scottsdale, with many car rental desks and taxis to make your transfer easy. Another option is to take the light rail from the airport into the center of Phoenix, then pick up a bus direct to Scottsdale.
