Located away from the the main Scottsdale attractions, the Talking Stick Resort is so ample in amenities and activities that it’s almost easy to forget there’s an entire city to see and explore. Talking Stick comes with a Las-Vegas-style casino, which provides adults a great chance to unwind and have some fun. There are also two golf courses onsite, not to mention the standard pool and spa that is available for all guests. The rooms are large and beautiful, decorated minimally in a relatively contemporary manner. Though the casino implies an older age group, there is plenty for families to experience while staying at the Talking Stick. The food within the hotel is superbly prepared, but restaurants and the rest of downtown Scottsdale are minutes away and easily accessible.

    Somewhere in between a bed and breakfast and a luxury hotel, The Bespoke Inn, Cafe & Bicycles offers the best of both worlds.

With an award-winning chef, the food at the Bespoke Inn echoes Mediterranean cuisine. What’s notable about the boutique hotel is the complimentary collection of British Pashley bicycles, which are part of a larger assortment of artisan bikes available for rental from the Bespoke Cycle shop.

    Village Grove Bed and Breakfast is one of the best in the area. The owner, Deirdre, lives onsite and treats guests as if they were staying in her own home. Village Grove is located in a quiet neighbourhood off Old Town Scottsdale that is secluded from the main area of Scottsdale, but close enough that downtown can be reached by foot. There are two bedrooms provided, both fitted with king beds and full bathrooms. A private pool and deck are available for guests as well. Of course, the much-anticipated breakfast is never disappointing. The food is exceptional and provides enough fuel to battle the hot sun and explore Scottsdale to its full extent.
