With a guests-only water park (complete with lazy river, wave pool and slides) and six restaurants serving everything from BBQ to Mexican, the Arizona Grand Resort is designed for family fun at every turn. Tasteful Southwestern hacienda style is on display throughout 740 spacious and comfortable desert-hued suites. All have large flatscreen TVs, private patios or balconies and separate bedroom and living rooms. Add a sophisticated spa and an 18-hole golf course with mountain vistas, and a family vacation here practically plans itself.
In the Area
The hotel runs a free shuttle to the popular Arizona Mills Mall (ask for a schedule at the bell desk). Check out the Sea Life Aquarium, which features a 360-degree ocean tunnel and more than 5,000 sea creatures, from sharks and rays to sea turtles. Marvel at the genius of Frank Lloyd Wright while walking through his desert masterpiece and former winter home, Taliesin West. Sip champagne and nosh on a gourmet breakfast in a beautiful hot air balloon over the desert. Saddle up with the whole family to explore the desert, pan for gold and traverse Superstition Mountain with Arizona Trail Horse Company.
How to Get There
I stayed here for 4 nights for a work conference in October. My suite was nice enough, and my bed was very comfortable. The grounds were really pretty and I had a very nice view out of my window of the grounds and mountain. I went to the spa for a massage and was shocked to learn the fitness center is in the middle of the spa. So you have to go out into the hallway and past the fitness center in your robe. The spa facility itself was subpar. There was no hot water for the tea offered, the whirlpool was tiny. Even the quality of the robe was terrible. The massage was very good however. Overall my stay was ok, but I would have been disappointed if I had paid for the stay myself.
This hotel handled our large conference (550 people) very well.
Rooms were nice and clean, beds comfortable and they did a great job with all meals and food was very good for an event of this size.
Staff was friendly and helpful.
Did not play the golf course but a few friends did and they found it just ok Holes at the beginning felt a little tight and you did not need a driver to play them.
Was in the Mountainside section and it was a nice walk each morning to the venues. They would come get you with a golf cart if you needed transportation
I stayed at this hotel for 3 days and came home with the worst bug bites all over my legs! I felt something biting me in my bed! Nice hote! The beds were comfy enough! It seemed really clean. The staff was friendly. The pool was nice and clean.
