The hotel has gorgeous grounds, with a breathtaking view of the red rocks, outstanding! There are three pools, some indoor, some outdoor, and lovely statues all over the grounds. The property goes all the way to Oak Creek. We stayed in the North Annex, where the rooms have balconies/patios and you can sit and enjoy the fabulous view past the huge green lawn for dog walkers and running children, although we didn't see either. The room was lovely, with a fireplace that we didn't use, since it was 100 degrees outside.
