We stayed here for 5 nights in August and were not disappointed. We had a Valencia room which was a really good size and had all the amenities you could need. The only slight drawback is that there were no ceiling lights, only table and floor lamps, which sometimes left the room a little dark. We stayed out of season... More

Exceeded expectations in every way! Highly recommend! We arrived early and were graciously accommodated while our rooms were prepared. Service is truly exceptional as is the quality and enjoyment of the food and drink. The grounds are breathtaking with a delightful historic charm that can't be matched! We didn't want to leave!

This Old Scottsdale, historic boutique hotel with Spanish architecture has unique doorways, winding stone walkways, orange groves, cooling water fountains and is truly beautiful. The photo op's alone were worth the stay! Our room itself was spacious, nice, clean but dark and in need of a touch up. Non the less, I loved the romantic four poster bed, and fireplace... More

When you enter Royal Palms, you are quickly transported to a lovely hacienda. The lush landscaping immediately encloses you in a warm cocoon, that shuts out the city. Everywhere you see paths, water features, and lovely plantings. I have to admit, a few times I needed help finding my way around the property. It was very relaxing to sit on... More

My husband and I have stayed at the Royal Palms on several occasions. This was by far our most memorable stay. The hotel staff are all friendly and helpful - from the front desk staff to the grounds keepers - everyone is smiling. We stayed in one of the Arcadia Casitas - it was spotlessly clean and HUGE! It felt... More

This was not my first time at Royal Palms but it will be my last. I booked this hotel for a romantic getaway with my husband. The total spent during our stay was around $1k for 2 nights. I special ordered the rose petal bath that was to be done at turn down. Upon arrival everything seemed 5 star as... More

Nice location, close to Old Scottsdale. The rooms are a bit outdated. Recently bought out by Hyatt so I would expect improvements. Great staff, very friendly and accommodating. A bit expensive for the area but you pay for the quiet setting with the mountain in the background.

We have been to the Royal Palms many time over the past 12 years. It never disappoints us. We truly feel like we have gotten away from it all. The service is outstanding from the front desk to the Valet and Bellman. The pool service is exceptional coming to fill your water glass every time it's empty. We truly also... More

Why more could you ask for? The pool was very nice, not overcrowded. Although we were there is peak summer season. Too hot for my liking but the hotel was great! Really big rooms, nice soaker tub and a separate shower and toilet. The AC was working!! Our server, Steven, at the pool was great! Service with a smile. And... More
