Hotels in Arizona

The selection of hotels in Arizona ranges from old-style motels to reliable chains to dude ranches and plush spa-and-golf-centered resorts. One thing they all have in common, at least in the desert regions, is a good pool (or even several pools). If you travel to Arizona in the summer, you can get hot deals (as well as regular 100-plus temps— an excellent excuse to stay in those pools) at hotels in the Phoenix and Tucson areas. The Arizona Biltmore set the standard in 1929 as one of the best hotels in Arizona. It’s elegantly designed by disciples of Frank Lloyd Wright and offers cottages, eight pools and high tea in the lobby.

Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort and Spa is tucked into the side of red-rock Camelback Mountain. The 105 adobe-style casitas have original art, soaking tubs and huge windows with mountain views. This is a great resort for tennis, too. Enchantment Resort is an Arizona hotel made up of low-slung casitas in Sedona's Boynton Canyon. It definitely has some Southwest magic thanks to its hiking trails, tennis courts, pools and a huge spa, Mii Amo. Inside, kiva fireplaces and rugs create a timeless Southwestern ambiance.
