PHOENIX From desert chic to urban convenience, there’s a stylish resort or hotel for everyone. By Martha-Page Althaus # Where to stay in Phoenix? That’s a tough call in a destination that’s known just as much for its luxury resorts as for its Sonoran Desert beauty. So whether you’re in town for business or pleasure, read on to find the perfect place to meet or to stay. Known as the “Jewel of the Desert,” the Arizona Biltmore ( was built in 1929 with Frank Lloyd Wright as the consulting architect. Once you check in, you won’t want to leave: The property boasts eight pools, seven tennis courts, five restaurants, two 18-hole PGA golf courses, and a 22,000-square-foot spa. Planning a wedding or other big gathering? Consider the resort’s Aztec and Gold ballrooms, which feature the hotel’s original gold-leaf ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows. Take luxuriating to a whole new level at The Phoenician (thephoenician .com), in the shadows of iconic Camelback Mountain. Guest rooms feature marble 76 APRIL 2013 baths and private balconies. If you manage to leave your plush room, you’ll find plenty to do. Take a dip in one of the nine pools; make a tee time at the 27-hole championship golf course; or reserve one of the 11 tennis courts. Need to seriously unwind? Easy to do at The Phoenician. Enjoy a quiet stroll through the twoacre Cactus Garden, or book a locally inspired massage at the Centre for Well-Being spa. When it’s time for dinner, ten restaurants serve everything from gourmet burgers (Relish Burger Bistro) to American-Italian (Il Terrazzo). The AAA Four Diamond Talking Stick Resort ( should be on any visitor’s to-experience list. The first-rate amenities include two championship golf courses, a buzzing pool
