Take a walk on a cobblestone pathway and stop at a fireplace at this resort at the base of Camelback Mountain, between downtown Scottsdale and the Biltmore corridor, and 7 seven miles from Phoenix International Airport.

Gwendolyn and Drew were very accommodation and went above and beyond to make my stay special. This is my favorite local hideaway as I am a native to Phoenix. I love everything about this property, from their gorgeous suites, excellent spa, well-groomed and beautiful landscaping, and the great food at T Cooks. It is a sanctuary and the perfect place for a little escape or an intimate experience. I also love that the pool is 24/7.
Whether it's dining at T. Cook's, having cocktails and enjoying live music at Mix Up Bar, or spending a relaxing weekend as resort guests, we are always on cloud nine at Royal Palms! The staff is absolutely topnotch with their attention to detail and willingness to make personalized accomodations. It is a place you truly feel like ROYALTY!
