I stayed for 4 days in Scottsdale at the Westin. This resort is so lovely. I had a view of the courtyard. At night, they would play relaxing music. You could sit on the balcony; and just enjoy the music and environment.Spa was gorgeous and sooooo relaxing. TIP: Hot-stone is unbelievable. Spa pool is so quiet and perfect for adults only. Nightly firepits are soooooo relaxing as the sunsets. TIP: Arrive early for a great seat to see the nightly bagpiper play. He is WONDERFUL and plays from 5-6 each night!. Kierland Commons is really close and easy 5 minute walk. Several restaurants including Cheesecake Factory and Tommy Bahamas - both yummy! You will truly enjoy this lovely resort, we did!

A trip to Scottsdale is not complete with out visiting Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin West. This was his winter home and school for promising architects. You'll be offfered two tours at the visitors center. My advice is to take the longer tour. You'll be glad that you did. This compound is unique and an architectural gem. Every room has its own special story of design and function. It was his home, his studio and his school. Today, it offers an educational opportunity to a gifted few students from around the world. It is an active and living educational facility. All students practice hands own techniques. What a wonderful experience!!!
