Fodor's Expert Review The Phoenician

6000 E. Camelback Rd., Phoenix, Arizona, 85251, USA Fodor's Choice

In a town where luxurious, expensive resorts are the rule, the Phoenician still stands apart, primarily in the realm of service. Gone is the gold-leaf, crystal-bedazzled lobby that screamed opulence. In its place is a re-imagined resort that sets as high a standard for comfort as it does luxury, and routinely surpasses expectations. The resort is remarkably comfortable and accommodating—especially for children. If the world-class spa, golf, or tennis aren't on the itinerary, there's always a pool a few steps away. Afterward, take in a sophisticated afternoon tea or dinner at J&G Steakhouse.
