Concierge.com's insider take:

As multimillion-dollar homes sprout up around the far North Scottsdale area, you'll have to drive past a slew of "lot for sale" signs and construction crews before reaching this Four Seasons, where the usual "Welcome to the Four Seasons, you are safe now" vibe will revive you. Buffered by 40 acres of manicured desert, the resort takes its name from its golf club, Troon North, which has two Weiskopf- and Morrish-designed courses that are as quiet and exclusive as it gets. The Four Seasons also hosts a number of fun programs such as cooking in the kitchen with hotel chef Mel Mecinas ("Saturday Night in the Kitchen") and poolside margarita-mixing lessons. Parents can drop their kids off at Kids for All Seasons, a hotel program that will keep children busy in the game room, on the tennis courts, or at the Ping-Pong table.

"The scenery from the rooms is hypnotic" at this desert resort 1,000 feet above downtown. Adobe casitas open onto landscaped terraces, while suites have telescopes, private plunge pools, and outdoor showers. The "courteous and first-rate" service includes chilled towels and snacks at the pool. Visit Talavera for "excellent food and a smashing view" or Crescent Moon for modern Mexican cuisine served indoors or on the terrace.
