Fairmont Scottsdale Princess
Scottsdale's quintessential and much-loved luxury resort welcomes guests in a relaxed desert setting.
Set against the backdrop of the McDowell Mountains, this sprawling resort still has what it takes to wow guests almost 30 after its opening in 1987. Mexican Colonial-style architecture relies on sun-washed stone, fountains, waterfalls, palms and cottonwoods to create an ambience that's both elegant and relaxed. The 651 Southwest-style guest rooms all feature living and work areas, terraces, wet bars, refreshment centers and oversize luxury bathrooms. The resort caters to families, starting with a complimentary Kids Club Program that includes activities such as scavenger hunts, lagoon fishing, badminton and water volleyball. Fun seekers of all ages will enjoy the water park, boasting two 200-foot water slides. Seven tennis courts, a tennis club and a 5,000-seat stadium accommodate top tournaments. For golfers, two Tournament Players Club courses are host to the PGA Tour's FBR each January. Well & Being at Willow Stream has garnered international accolades for its treatments and services. At the spa, an adults-only rooftop pool and waterfall, which cascades over the side of the building, are highlights. Treatment rooms with private outdoor patios are adjacent to the falls, allowing guests to relax to the sound of falling water while a therapist's soothing hands work their magic. Fitness offerings are equally enticing, including aerial hammock yoga. To round out your experience, be sure to schedule a dinner at chef Richard Sandoval’s opulent Hacienda Mexican restaurant.
