Scottsdale Plaza Resort

The Scottsdale Plaza Resort is an oasis of tranquility that captures the essence of scenic Arizona. Graceful Spanish Mediterranean architecture and décor create a cozy, private estancia-style feel. Take a dip in one of five heated pools located throughout the grounds, smooth out your stroke on the resort’s private putting green, or just experience the warm desert breezes and views of Camelback Mountain. Clusters of rooms and suites are tucked among peaceful courtyards that are surrounded by fragrant, indigenous flowers, seasonal plantings, 50-foot palms & eucalyptuses.
