Royal Palms vs. The Phoenician???

I am organizing a girl's getaway for group of 12 women in their 30's and currently have reservations at both the Royal Palms and the Phoenician. We all want to relax... lounge by the pool, relax, enjoy a spa treatment, eat and sleep (esp. those of us with babies at home!). Any suggestions on which to choose? I'm particularly interested in: 1. which hotel has better 'lounging' areas ... (if it's cold outside, we'll be indoors spending time together) 2. Room comfort (we have 4/room ... I know the Phoenician rooms are bigger ... 600 sq ft. vs. 480 but not sure if this makes a big difference). 3. Overall 'value' (I know both are pricey but which is worth it).

Any insights appreciated!

Phoenician is really a step up in service. It's newer, glitzier. Both are pricey, but the Phoenician shows it better.

The Phoenician is awesome, but I would also recommend The Princess or The Arizona Biltmore Resort.

I live in Scottsdale and would definitely recommend The Biltmore or the Westin at Kierland.
