There's something special about staying in a room you don't have to clean and hanging out by a pool where people bring you drinks. It's called a vacation. And in Phoenix in the summer, we call it a staycation! Take advantage of that final chill-out experience you deserve before heading back to school!
The Wigwam Resort
The historic west valley resort is within walking distance of local restaurants and bars, making this a great place to stay without having to pay resort restaurant prices. Summer resident rates starting from $99 Sunday – Thursday. Learn More
Mountain Shadows Resort
Newly renovated, this iconic Phoenix resort is a sleek, hip, retro marvel in Paradise Valley. $119 on select dates, May 28 through August 31. If you like to golf, it offers a fantastic 3-par, 18-hole course. Go early to avoid the heat. Learn More
Pointe Hilton at Squaw Peak Resort
If you have kids, this is the place to go. With suite deals starting at $129 a night, you get access to the water park and mini golf (call to see what the current resort fee is). Even better, get a group of friends together and book an entire casita. The rooftop patio on the casita makes a great place to hang out in the evening, and each group of casitas has their own pool and bbq area. Learn More
