The place is out of this world. Outdoor fireplaces and bubbling fountains turn every patio into magical places. Even though the resort is only a mile away from the Scottsdale Fashion Shopping district it makes you feel like you are hundreds of miles away from the hustle and bustle of a big city. Phoenix over the past 15 years has...

Our stay was a gateway to Arizona, flying into PHX late from BOS. Surprisingly delightful, RPR is now one of our favorite hotels and we are already talking about returning! Situated close to Skyharbor Intl airport, yet world's away in terms of serenity and situated at the base of Camelback Mountain, with lovely walking paths, gardens and courtyards. Just the...

Just driving in the entrance of this gorgeous hotel you feel wonderful. You get greeted by very friendly parking attendants that take your bags and park your car. This is when everything went wrong... I had made my reservation around midnight so technically it wasn't for that night. I went to the front desk and was rudely greeted by Daniel,...

We are very sorry and surprised to read about your experience. We do require all guests to have a reservation for each night they are staying on property however you should never have been treated that way and we are happy that a manager stepped in to remedy the situation. We hope you choose Royal Palms the next time you...

The first and biggest impression of this resort is how immaculate it looks. The decor and cleanliness really makes you feel like you are at a luxury resort. The only major complaint we had was that the pool is not heated. During June and July this may not be a problem, but in October where it is still hot enough...

My husband and I stayed for four nights in early October. The Royal Palms is a beautiful hotel in an amazing setting. We enjoyed the residential feeling and walking around discovering all of the nooks and crannies around the grounds. Even though I overheard that the resort was fully booked, we felt as if we were all alone in a...

My wife, infant daughter and I spent four days at the Royal Palms last week and left nothing short of impressed. First, the location is ideal; situated on Camelback within blocks of both the Biltmore and Old Town Scottsdale, you truly are in the middle of everything. Next, while one of the Historical Hotels of America, they've managed to upgrade...

I knew nothing about this place except it popped up as one of the 'nice' places to stay in the Phoenix area. We had just returned from running the R2R2R in the Canyon and needed a place to 'humanize' again. WOW! This place is so special! The Rich history & architect/art is amazing! We lounged by the pool, drank ice...

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Royal Palms in March, scheduled for 5 days. When we arrived, we were told our room wasn't available because someone decided not to check out or something. They then offered to put us up for one night at the Phoenician, and refund the night we missed at the Royal Palms. As disappointed as...

Clay, We are very sorry to read your feedback about your experience in March. Please accept our sincere apologies for the way the situation was handled as this certainly does not sound like our standard operating procedures.

Ended a weeklong traveling trip at the Royal Palms Resort and Spa. Three days was not enough could of easily spent the entire week. The resort was immaculate and in a convenient location.
