Yup, it’s a scorcher in Scottsdale’s Sonoran Desert right now but you can find a cool hideaway at one of more than 70 resorts and hotels that range from five-diamond luxury resorts and chic urban hotels to cozy budget-friendly lodgings fit for the whole family.
Summer rates start from just $84 per night (such as at the Scottsdale Park Suites) and luxury resort stays from $129 nightly. Book your stay, claim your savings and use the extra cash for indulgences like spa treatments, cabana rentals or another night’s stay. Some of the participating hotels offer a 4th night free.
The Scottsdale area is 10 miles west of Old Town Scottsdale — a best bet for a car-free stay. In addition to 10 hotels and hundreds of restaurants, bars, attractions and shopping opportunities, Old Town offers electric scooter and bike rentals, and golf cart services to help you get around. Rideshare via Lyft and Uber is available throughout the city, including to and from Sky Harbor Airport.
If you do rent a car, explore the natural wonders of Sedona’s red rocks located north of Scottsdale (about a two-hour drive). The Grand Canyon’s popular South Rim is roughly four hours away.
