Hi everyone. This site is amazing. I need some really good advice for our first trip to Arizona and I believe this is the best place to get it - so here goes!
We are three ladies from UK (Grandma, Mum and adult daughter). Our trip starts in Las Vegas, then we will hire a car for the next seven days - two nights at Yavapai Lodge in Grand Canyon, two nights in Sedona, three nights in Scottsdale. I have booked Sedona (Best Western Arroyo Roble) but I am really struggling to know the best choice for Scottsdale. We will be there at the end of the first week in May, and would like a nice pool, clean rooms and helpful staff. We have to stay with moderate prices cos other parts of the trip are quite pricey (Las Vegas and 5 nights at a guest ranch) - so- which would be best hotel in Scottsdale - Holiday Inn Express, Best Western Papago Inn, Chapparal Suites or Waterfront Ivy?? We would like to be close to shopping and restaurants, and we are all pretty fit so don't mind some walking as long as the area is safe. Any guidance would be great. Many thanks.
