Pssstt. . .did you know that when Arizona’s Valley of the Sun (Phoenix and Scottsdale) starts heating up in the summer you can nab some of its coolest hotel deals?
Think 5-star luxury . . . pools . . . spas . . . fine dining. . . at prices so low you could stay three or four nights for the cost of one night in the same room during the winter.
Places like at the Four Seasons Troon North in Scottsdale. That’s their pool area pictured below. Can’t you imagine yourself sunning there while sipping a cool one?
I wrote about the drop in prices in an article that appears in today’s Seattle Times. You will have to click this link however, to see what kind of deals I am talking about (believe me, it is worth your time to do so).
And if you are contemplating a road trip to Arizona, I have another article in the Seattle Times today in which I point out some ‘not-to-miss’ stops and things to do in the North Central part of this Grand Canyon State (beyond the Grand Canyon, you might say). To see those, you’ll need to click this link.
And for those of you who do click the links to the Seattle Times, you might recognize the guy in my photos with the orange shirt. . .
Hope to see you back here again this week because we are introducing a Travel Classics series featuring some charming historic hotels we’ve happened upon and we will also be taking you to Amsterdam for a night on the town!
Until then, ‘Happy Travels!’
