A hotel boom is happening in the Grand Canyon State with a slew of openings in recent months — from upscale retreats to funky retro motels. Some are brand-new properties while others have reopened after major renovations.
Hilton North Scottsdale at Cavasson
The six-story, 237-room Hilton North Scottsdale at Cavasson opened at the beginning of 2023, welcoming both business and leisure travelers to the mixed-use development about 15 miles north of downtown Scottsdale. The full-service property has resort-style amenities, including a pool surrounded by lounge chairs and palm trees, as well as a fitness center and coffee shop.
I didn’t stay here on my recent jaunt to Arizona, but past guests rave about the views of the stunning McDowell Mountains, and they appreciated sitting around community firepits, praising helpful staff that offered blankets on a cool night. Past visitors also recommend making time for a meal at the hotel’s Desert Pony Tavern, a Southwest-inspired gastropub with indoor and outdoor seating.
