Trip Report Great Scottsdale area trip for Spring Break!

Jump to last reply

I am so grateful to all those who helped me plan our recent four-night trip to AZ. It was fabulous and all four of us including children (12 and 14) agree.

We decided to stay at the Intercontinental Montelucia. It's fabulous, but not grand in the same way that the Biltmore and the Phoenician seem to be. No golf course or tennis, but it feels rather intimate and hip. We were upgraded to a king suite that had a nice patio and convenient pool access. It was great to be near the action and even though the resort was sold out we never felt like things were crowded.

Day One --
The concierge was right on top of things and understood what we wanted. The first night we went to Posh, a restaurant without a menu. This was a truly memorable food experience! After giving the server vague guidelines on what we liked/disliked to eat, we were bought course after course of delectable and creative dishes. Wow! I cant say enough about the food and the service at this place. There are certain bites -- like the foie gras "creme brulee" and the buttermilk panna cotta with berry salsa that will be hard to top. If you are a foodie, this is not to be missed.

We got back to the resort late and were dismayed to find that there had been no turn down service, a problem when you have a pull out bed for one of the kids. But, they did make up for it in other ways. Oh yeah, we decided to pay the $25 to get blu-ray installed. However, my husband balked at the additional $7 for a movie rental. So, we cancelled it. It turned out to be a good thing anyway, since we're all pretty avid readers.

To be continued ..
