On our recent stay at the Phoenician, my husband, daughter and I had High Tea in the Lobby Tea Court. This was by far the best tea we have ever experienced! From making the reservations a month in advance, to the actual tea service itself, everything was fantastic. The atmosphere is gorgeous and relaxing, the tables are beautifully set with gorgeous china. Our server was an absolute doll, and was attentive to our needs. The food was exquisite and endless!! We sampled tea sandwiches that we had never had before and they were all delicious. We were so full, we didn't have room to sample the desserts that came with our tea, but our server boxed everything up for us and we nibbled on it later in our room, again everything was delicious. We never felt rushed to finish our meal or our tea, which was nice as some tea rooms want to rush you. When we couldn't think of eating another bite, we sat back and enjoyed the last of our tea at a leisurely pace. The price was so inexpensive for all of the food that you received, which was a pleasant change to the normal high tea which averages $35 - $45 per person but doesn't give you a lot of food. The only bad part is that this tea room is too far away to enjoy more often as we live in California, but when traveling in the Scottsdale area, I will definitely go back and have the afternoon tea at the Phoenician. 5 stars!!!!
