We visit the Four Seasons in Scottsdale a couple of times a year. Perfect for long weekends. Have spent Mothers Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, weekends in the autumn. Every staff member knows my family by name, including our two dogs. The location is amazing with endless views of Phoenix and the Valley of the Sun. Great sunsets and sunrises. Incredible city lights view. We spend the Fourth of July here most summers. Even with the 100+ temperature the entire family has a blast. Views of 7 or 8 firework shows from all of the suburban cities in Phoenix. The restaurants are some of the best in the area. Pools are great, including a wonderful kids pool for little ones, a large family pool and an adult pool. A lot of Cabanas, although you do need to be an early bird, fortunately we are out on our morning run just as the sun is up. The rooms are very southwest as is the entire resort. Great golfing at Troon North. Take adantage of the activities offered. Holiday weekends usually offer a dive in movie for the kids. Great to sit under the stars enjoying some drinks by the pool while the kids are watching Kung Foo Panda.
