We stayed for 1 nights on our arrival to Phoenix for a SW tour, the property is very well arranged, presented and manicured. Rooms are nice and comfortable with a good cozy feeling to them. The restaurant is very good both for dinner and for breakfast. Overall a great experience and staff very courteous. Could have wooden flooring in bedrooms,... More

We stayed here for two nights as part of a family vacation. We had two rooms and whilst our request for interconnecting rooms was not fulfilled they were one room away from each other. The hotel staff are all very helpful - especially the bell men/valets. Offering a good explanation of the hotel lay out and services and also local... More

We live about 4 miles up the road here in Scottsdale and have never been to the Royal Palms. When my husband suggested a staycation here in town I wasn't that enthused - boy was I wrong. We booked a Spa Terrace Suite with the intention to spend a good amount of time relaxing in the room, going to the... More

We recently stayed at the Royal Palms as part of their Luxe Lounging package. At check-in we received a free room upgrade which was a nice surprise. We also found out at check-in that the Royal Palms is now part of the Hyatt hotels. As part of the package we received a credit to use at T Cook's restaurant but... More

I was excited to experience a stay at the Royal Palms resort and spa in Phoenix. I read all the reviews before I went. It's usually VERY expensive place to stay, so when I got it for under $200/nt I jumped at the chance. I frequent the JW Marriott at Camelback, so I was eager for the change in scenery.... More

We were so excited to stay at the Royal Palms. The grounds are amazing and very well kept. The staff is attentive. We had a suite which had a front room with a sofa and desk so during the week my husband could work, the middle room is the bath area with a lovely tub and then the back room... More

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
