I recently had a staycation at the Royal Palms, which I try to do annually. It's always a great experience. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable. The staff is amazing...they seem to always remember my name and my preferences. What's more, the staff's efficiency seems effortless...they are just naturally pleasant and capable. While I'm sure people could find fault,... More

A lovely hotel in a great location full of welcoming helpful staff. The hotel is well designed for the heat of summer with plenty of shade and courtyards that funnel the breeze and the grounds are impeccably manicured. The hotel staff are without exception delightful. The bar was nice and the live entertainment on friday night enjoyable. Breakfast at T.... More

Great staff, calm surroundings, amazing design and connection with environment... Lovely beach and good food. Location is great, near Scottsdale that is the place to be in Phoenix, and is close to the desert.

This was our first time experiencing Royal Palms. Our first impression and entire stay was perfection. This is a perfect place for a romantic getaway and did not disappoint. The location was terrific, situated just between the Biltmore Center and Fashion Square…very convenient! The Bar “Mix Up” was perfect for a casual dinner for two. The bellmen/valet were attentive and... More

This was one of the finest hotels I have ever stayed in. The grounds we're magnificent. We spent hours just walking around and imagining we we're in Spain. I loved the area where the paintings are. There is a grand, carved wood fireplace in a sitting area. I've never seen such detail in the US before. Reminded me of the... More

We had a restful and relaxing visit at the Royal Palms, including a wonderful experience in the Spa and a memorable anniversary celebration dinner at T. Cook's. The highlight of several great aspects of the visit was the outstanding and engaging service of our T. Cook's waiter, Jeff. Thanks.

As others have mentioned, a 5star southwest resort in every way. We appreciated the staff having just the right amount of helpfulness without being "gushy". Did encounter an issue with hot water, mentioned and genuinely appreciative we let them know and they fixed before we knew it. Great grounds for a leisurely walk, with some interesting nooks and crannies to... More

An historical hotel, the Royal Palms Resort and Spa is breathtaking. The grounds are beautifully maintained. The staff is attentive and the rooms are splendid. The room had a huge comfortable bed and luxurious bathroom. The walk-in closet was amazing. We absolutely loved our stay and cannot wait to return.

The Royal Palms is one of our favorite places to stay. Why?....the architecture, the grounds, the great food, fabulous accommodations and excellent service. We returned to the Royal Palms to celebrate our wedding anniversary and were treated to an upgrade by hotel staff. While the designer casitas are a treat, we were delightfully given a stay in the adjoining area... More
