Located 50 minutes northeast of Phoenix, in the Sonoran Desert at the foot of the Pinnacle Peak Park.
The Four Seasons Resort is located northeast of Scottsdale, outside Troon Village. The area is known for its world-class golf courses (including Estancia and Troon North clubs, both a short drive from the hotel) and beautiful setting. One of the main attractions here is the Pinnacle Peak Park, which features hiking trails, plenty of good spots for rock climbing, and a wide variety of local flora and fauna. There are a couple of small shopping malls within a few minutes’ drive, but the real draw is the stunning desert landscape.
The Four Seasons is one of the top luxury resorts in Scottsdale, with a gorgeous bi-level pool, an intimate setting in the Sonoran Desert, and beautiful grounds that blend with the surrounding landscape (expect tall cacti, flowering shrubs, and natural stone formations). The property comprises a cluster of low adobe-style buildings; the 210 rooms and suites are housed in 25 casitas, giving the Four Seasons the feel of a small village. The lobby is stunning and high-design, with colorful, modern Southwestern decor, wrought-iron light fixtures, and wood-beamed ceilings. Rooms aren't quite as stylish, but are still elegant and feature gas-burning fireplaces, L’Occitane toiletries, iHome alarm clocks, and plush beds. Solid dining options, a wonderful spa, a huge fitness center, and an on-site art gallery round out the experience. But there are fees for Wi-Fi and parking, and the parking lot is a bit far from the main building -- though staff can escort guests to and from in golf carts.
