Spring is an ideal time to visit The Phoenician, a Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel. Whether you’re interested in booking a family-friendly Easter vacation or a sporty getaway for two, you’ll find plenty to enjoy at this welcoming resort situated at the base of Camelback Mountain in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Easter is celebrated in several ways at this luxury Scottsdale resort. Start the day with a dose of Easter magic by ordering an Easter basket to be delivered to your room; each basket will include a stuffed animal, ball, coloring book, crayons, bubbles and, of course, lots of candy.
On Easter morning, children will partake in one of the city’s most beloved traditions: the Phoenician egg hunt, a grand affair that starts promptly at 9 a.m. Throughout the day, families will be able to make lasting memories at the Easter fair and petting zoo, by playing classic lawn games like “Jumbo Jenga” and cornhole and posing for a snapshot with the Easter Bunny. A traditional Easter brunch is usually served in the grand ballroom; guests may also indulge in a prix fixe three-course Easter dinner at J&G Steakhouse or a four-course dinner at Il Terrazzo.
Baseball fans, don’t forget to pack a mitt if you’re planning to visit The Phoenician in March. Cactus League baseball spring training is a huge event this month, and the luxury Scottsdale resort often offers a special package that includes complimentary shuttle service to and from the Scottsdale stadium on game days, plus two Phoenician stadium cushions to make you more comfortable while you root for the home team. Assuming you don’t fill up on peanuts and Cracker Jacks, the package also includes daily lunch for two at Relish Burger Bistro.
