We will be visiting outdoor areas such as Cave Creek Regional Park, McDowell Sonoran Preserve and Usery Mountain Regional Park. We will be exploring Cave Creek, Carefree and Old Town Scottsdale. We will be shopping at the large malls and outlet centers.
We have visited Arizona a few times previously but have only stayed in the Phoenix airport area to catch our flight to the UK. The vast variety of accommodations in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area is a bit overwhelming and I don't want to make a poor selection for this five night stay.
We are looking for a moderately priced hotel with good access to the freeways to get the above attractions. I was thinking locating close to Loop 101 is the way to go.
We prefer quieter hotels with pleasant outdoor areas for relaxing outside in the evenings.
We are not looking for large upscale resorts, although I have found a good deal at the Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort in North Phoenix. The other hotels I have on the short list are; The Gainey Suites and The Chaparral Suites.
Any advice regarding these three or any other hotel suggestions are welcome.
