Throw away any preconceived ideas you have about Best Western hotels—this conveniently located little resort boasts bold contemporary styling in its guest rooms, with black granite counters and wall-hung TVs. A wide variety of room types provide plenty of options. There are suites with sunrooms and large patios, and high-ceilinged “bungalow”-style rooms. The location is just west of Scottsdale Road, on Camelback; all of downtown Scottsdale is a short walk away.
