Feel the Heat
If you can handle the temperature, consider a post–spring training jaunt to Scottsdale in Arizona. Here we look at three properties offering not only substantial discounts throughout the summer, but also something new.
The award-winning Fairmont Scottsdale Princess will debut renovations this summer, including 102 new rooms and a brand-new sunset pool with a splash pad, white-sand beach and swim-up bar. Rooms start at $169 per night. fairmont.com/scottsdale
The Westin Kierland Resort & Spa, home of the FlowRider (surfing wave), now has a private island for rent in Kierland Cove in its “lazy river” pool. The offer includes lounge chairs, umbrellas, reserved tubes, complimentary chips, salsa and water. Island rates start at $450 a day. Summer room rates start at $149 per night. kierlandresort.com
After a big refresh of the pool last fall, Camelback Inn and Sanctuary invites guests to come take a splash. The upgrades include a resurfacing of the main pool and the addition of an adults-only quiet pool and a new children’s pool. Rooms start at $199 per night. marriott.com
