Overview

A sprawling getaway with seven restaurants and an Arnold Palmer golf course in the dramatic Sonoran desert

The Lowdown

With its gorgeous desert setting and wealth of fresh air activities, this mammoth, 900-room family-friendly resort is aimed at golf and wellness enthusiasts. Enjoy two 18-hole championship golf courses designed by Arnold Palmer and Nick Faldo, or spend the entire day at the spa, with its Southwest-centric treatments like mesquite clay wraps and turquoise blue sage body rituals. Those with heartier appetites can restaurant-hop between the resort’s seven dining experiences, sampling everything from North Italian comfort food to Hawaiian-Asian cuisine at Roy’s.

In the Area

Even those who don’t count themselves as music aficionados will be wowed by the show-stopping Musical Instrument Museum, or MIM, a fascinating and well-curated journey through the history of music, with a collection that includes instruments from music icons like John Lennon and Elvis Presley. See one of the world’s greatest wonders from a great height on a helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon, many of which depart from Phoenix. Then come back to earth – deliciously – at Kona Grill, a fun Phoenix standby dishing up everything from fresh sushi to flatbreads with fancy toppings like brie, figs, and red onion jam.

Beautiful Hotel with Comfortable beds
Mea37

What a beautiful and stunning resort. Plenty of things to do for the whole family or the traveling business person. There are several pools including a wonderful lazy river. There's plenty of room to relax and unwind. They have other games throughout the pool area including cornhole, ping pong, checkers, and others. The spa is wonderful with a dry and wet sauna as well as a jacuzzi. The service is excellent as well and what you would expect from a JW Marriott.

Why would you stay anywhere else?
