When visiting the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess Resort for the first time, you may feel a bit overwhelmed at first because there is so much to do! The best idea is to not try to fit it in all at once. Take time to slowly savor what the resort has to offer, then visit again at a later time to try something new. Whether visiting for work or pleasure, you’ll find the accommodations to be some of the best the Valley has to offer. If you’re a business traveler, you’ll find the business center a tremendous help complete with internet access, fax and copy machines, and package shipping and receiving services. Large meeting rooms are also available.
Should you be in search of a relaxing getaway, the Willow Stream Spa is the place for you. With a full menu of spa services, and a desert zen like ambiance, you’ll feel like a new person. Services are available both inside and outside when our lovely desert weather permits.
If there are inches you’d like to take off, the resort boasts a tennis court, and eight golf club partners. The best being the Stadium Course which is home of the annual PGA TOUR Waste Management Phoenix Open (formerly the FBR Open.) For both fun and exercise, there are two different pools on the property. The South Pool which has cabanas for rent and promises a relaxing swim, and Sonoran Splash which has two water slides and is perfect for those bringing their children. If you are bringing your family, there are plenty of activities for youngsters aged 5-12 as well as teens 13+, and a babysitting service for those under 5. It’s a perfect way for mom and dad to get a little work done, or have some peaceful time to themselves while their children enjoy a variety of activities. If you’d all like to spend some time together, there are also hot air balloon rides and desert jeep tours that are perfect for all ages, and an ice skating rink in the winter months.
After all this activity, you’re bound to work up an appetite. There are five different restaurants serving different cuisine from gourmet gastro-pub fare at The Grill on the Stadium Golf Course, to Bourbon Steak, a fine dining experience. The LV Bistro even includes a private kids area where they can play and watch kid friendly movies while the adults sip organic coffee so they can keep up! For a more adult feel, try the Stone Rose Lounge featuring cutting-edge design, fashionable clientele and signature cocktails in a contemporary setting. For a new twist, try La Hacienda by Richard Sandoval: Recently voted the #1 Mexican Restaurant in Arizona (Ranking Arizona, 2012.) Of course, room service is also available.
