We will have a Thurs/Fri night stay in the Scottsdale area in early April. We're not that big into galleries/museums/shopping, but love the idea of the Old Town Scottsdale nightlife. I think one night will be enough for us. Looking for a hotel w/in walking distance of the bars/restaurants; hopefully one w/ a decent pool. Holiday Inn or Marriott would be nice for the reward points; free breakfast is always nice too. Safe/walking distance is most important though. Suggestions?
Since we briefly considered Vegas for this 2 night stay, now I'm thinking the other night at an AZ casino would work well. Which is nicest - most resort like - w/ bars, restaurants, nice pool, maybe a spa?
My thought is maybe Casino for Thursday night and Scottsdale for Friday - less crowded at casino on Thurs and more 'happening' in Scottsdale on Friday. Thoughts on that too?
