Phoenix, Arizona, is a hot spot for vacationers. But in the summer, it’s literally a hot spot as temps can get upwards of 120 degrees. That is is why even high-end resorts and hotels like Fairmont Scottsdale Princess lure people in with amazing deals. And that’s a win-win for Phoenician staycationers like me!
On a whim, my (almost) 4-year-old son, Mateo, and our dog Jeter (yes, it’s dog friendly—more on that later) checked in at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess. I can only describe it as magic. It’s a AAA Five Diamond resort so I don’t have to tell you that the grounds are beautiful, the accommodations are impeccable, and the service can’t be rivaled. But for Mateo, fancy doesn’t equal fun. Fun equals fun. I’m happy to report – we had fun!
