The Boulders, a Waldorf Astoria Resort

The Boulders, a Waldorf Astoria Resort Rating: 5.0 Pearls

Distance: 1.7 mi from The Boulders Resort & Golden Door Spa - Phoenix
Arguably the most scenic resort in the Southwest, the Boulders is built to impress -- exceptional gym and spa; renowned golf courses; organic cuisine grown on the grounds; and casitas with wood-beamed ceilings. It's one of the best resorts in Phoenix.
Carefree Resort & Conference Center

Carefree Resort & Conference Center Rating: 3.5 Pearls

Distance: 0.9 mi from The Boulders Resort & Golden Door Spa - Phoenix
The Carefree Resort and Conference Center is a landmark in the beautiful Sonoran Desert foothills, with mid-century design, attractive cacti-covered grounds and mountain views. Its mid-range rooms are extremely spacious, but some are starting to show their age (a multi-million dollar renovation of the entire property is currently underway). Still, it's less expensive than other resorts in the area, like Boulders.
Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North

Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North Rating: 5.0 Pearls

Distance: 7.6 mi from The Boulders Resort & Golden Door Spa - Phoenix
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.
JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa

JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa Rating: 4.5 Pearls

Distance: 10.2 mi from The Boulders Resort & Golden Door Spa - Phoenix
This 869-room megaresort north of Phoenix with two 18-hole golf courses is so massive that even the street is named after it -- Marriott Drive. It's part of Marriott's JW luxury brand, and mostly lives up to expectations, but prices seem a bit high considering decor is a tad generic and signs of age are starting to show. The resort mostly attracts families who keep busy with an unending list of activities, as well as large conference groups gathering in one of the ballrooms. Some pointers: The higher the room the better the view (think mountain vistas and desert sunsets), and light sleepers should avoid the pool area to avoid late-night revelers and live music. For some peace and quiet, the Revive Spa has 41 treatment rooms and a healthy restaurant. The fitness center is small, but it does come with floor-to-ceiling windows, or guests can make use of the 4.2-mile jogging course around the property perimeter. One of the highlights is the 1,600 foot Lazy River pool, for relaxing inner-tube rides along the beautiful grounds.
Westin Kierland Villas

Westin Kierland Villas Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Distance: 13.6 mi from The Boulders Resort & Golden Door Spa - Phoenix
The 298-room Westin Kierland Villas is an upscale timeshare outpost of the Starwood chain. It has an excellent location just outside Scottsdale, a kid-friendly swimming area, an adults-only pool, and Agave, the Arizona Spa. The villas are comfortable and modern with full kitchens, laundry facilities, showers with twin showerheads, and spacious balconies. This is a hotel with an informal atmosphere as opposed to the more formal competitors in this steep price class. Although there is little to complain about, certain competing hotels such as the Phoenician offer more restaurant options on-site activities, as well as larger grounds. Additionally, the persistent timeshare presentations may drive guests to the surrounding properties. Wi-Fi and parking are both free.
The Westin Kierland Resort & Spa

The Westin Kierland Resort & Spa Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Distance: 14.0 mi from The Boulders Resort & Golden Door Spa - Phoenix
While not quite a romantic escape in the same way as The Boulders or The Sanctuary, the Westin Kierland is, all-around, a great resort with a convenient Scottsdale location. For kids: excellent pool complex; supervised educational activities; special events for teens; weekend bonfires. For adults: fine dining; great golf; quality spa; adults-only pool; across from a shopping mall.
Scottsdale Thunderbird Suites

Scottsdale Thunderbird Suites Rating: 3.0 Pearls

Distance: 14.0 mi from The Boulders Resort & Golden Door Spa - Phoenix
The Scottsdale Thunderbird Suites is an unexceptional mid-range hotel next to the Scottsdale Airport, near a popular shopping and dining area. The freebies are numerous and the clean two-room suites have kitchenettes. But the bathrooms are small and narrow, and the rooms are dated and showing wear and tear. For the price, the Hotel Indigo offers more style and a more central location -- but it's not as quiet and rooms aren't as large.
Gainey Suites Hotel

Gainey Suites Hotel Rating: 3.0 Pearls

Distance: 18.0 mi from The Boulders Resort & Golden Door Spa - Phoenix
Meridian CondoResorts

Meridian CondoResorts Rating: 3.0 Pearls

Distance: 18.7 mi from The Boulders Resort & Golden Door Spa - Phoenix
This mid-range condominium resort is geared toward golfers vacationing with friends or family, with numerous packages for local courses on offer. The condos are large enough to sleep four to 12, but they're dated, with motel-quality bedding and old tube TVs in some rooms. For more modern rooms, try the chicer (and pricier) Westin Kierland Resort and Spa, which has three 18-hole golf courses on-site.
Scottsdale Resort and Conference Center

Scottsdale Resort and Conference Center Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Distance: 19.0 mi from The Boulders Resort & Golden Door Spa - Phoenix
This 326-room resort in central Scottsdale, next to the high-end McCormick Ranch Golf Course, is upscale but laid-back, with expansive, landscaped grounds and Spanish-style architecture. Its attractive, casual pools and attentive staff are highlights, but the rooms -- while nice -- aren't quite luxurious.
