Scottsdale: City of Hotels and Attractions

Apr 7, 2008
There are literally dozens of places to choose from if you are looking for a Scottsdale, Arizona hotel. Whether your budget is set for rates as low as $100 a night per room or as high as $500, there are accommodations for everyone in "Sun Valley."

Scottsdale is home to so many different hotels because of its international reputation as a premier tourist destination. The world class golfing, western culture, temperate climate, outdoor recreation, large shopping centers and fine dining that are found in Scottsdale all contribute to the area's appeal. There are also great family attractions like the Out of Africa Wildlife Park, the McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park and the Rawhide Wild West Town. Kids and adults alike will enjoy the opportunities these places provide. Spend the day panning for gold, dressing like a cowboy, meeting giraffes, elephants and tigers and riding a miniature train. For low-key families, a movie and some games are also good activities.

As you look for the best place to stay during your Scottsdale vacation, make sure to take your personal interests in mind. For example, if you plan on spending very little time in the hotel itself, you probably don't want to invest a lot of money in the place you stay. On the other hand, if your idea of the ideal vacation involves basking by a pool or spending the day at a spa, you may want to do a little research on the more expensive resorts that Scottsdale is famous for.

Your interests will probably influence the geographic location you choose as well. For example, if you love to shop with a passion you should find a hotel that is downtown or close to the shops in the Old Town. Or, if you prefer golfing a place by The Phoenician would probably be more appropriate while Camelback Mountain is well-known for being a removed and peaceful location.

As important as it is to do your homework on the area before you book a room, researching Arizona hotels can take a lot of time if you try to research them one by one. Consequently, I would recommend looking for marketing sites that describe several different hotels in one place and provide links to their sites so that you can check them out if you're interested. With their brief descriptions of hotel rates, amenities and locations, these sites can help you save time. Best of all, some of these sites can also save you money with special online rates.
