My only fear as a guest at The Ritz-Carlton was that they would discover I was just a regular person! From the moment we pulled up, we were treated like royalty. Every single employee at this oasis pampered us as if we were the most important guests there!
Our stay was between Christmas and New Years. Some of my memories are the warm and cozy fireplaces inside and firepits and fire towers outside. There were Christmas trees everywhere. They had several beautiful gingerbread houses with yummy homemade gingerbread cookies in baskets. The interior was decorated beautifully with the desert as its inspiration. One nice touch was the Indian playing a flute at sunset; his music floated through air as guests meandered through the trails and paths on the property. We very much enjoyed hiking on the hills around the Ritz. We knew this time of year would be the only time we could hike in this part of Arizona! The hotel is nestled beautifully in Dove Mountain.
I believe our room was a 'standard' room. However, remember 'standard' at the Ritz is fabulous! It had a beautiful view of the pool and mountains. The room had a large spa tub and nice glass shower.
We played golf. It was no more expensive than anyplace in Scottsdale at this time of year. The course was a lot of fun and very challenging.
We loved every moment of our stay. We would 100% recommend this wonderful place!
