Phoenix Hotels Guide
While the Valley is world famous for its Mobil Four-Star resorts and luxury hotels, there are an equal, if not larger, number of motels suited for families and budget-conscious travelers. For some reason, however, the area is short of bread and breakfasts. The Valley of the Sun is justly known for wonderful scenic resorts that will rival any on earth, each with its own flavor and theme.
If you need a place to stay, the following hotels are some recommendations: Mobil Four-Star Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North (10600 E Crescent Moon Dr), Mobil Three-Star Arizona Biltmore Resort (2400 E Missouri Rd), Mobil Four-Star The Phoenician (6000 E Camelback Rd), Mobil Three-Star Royal Palms (5200 Camelback Rd), Mobil Four-Star The Ritz-Carlton Phoenix (2401 E Camelback Rd), and Mobil Three-Star Hyatt Regency Scottsdale at Gainey Ranch (7500 E Doubletree Ranch Rd).
During big sports periods such as the Fiesta Bowl and FBR Open, you'll want to make reservations far in advance as hotels and resorts can be bursting at the seams. And, don't forget, the rates are considerably less during the hot summer months.
You won't find that great little Old World Italian joint in Phoenix, but you will be able to enjoy other types of topnotch dining spots. See the next page for a restaurants guide.
