While other new Scottsdale-area hotels aspire to urban cool, the 293-room Montelucia will appeal to fans of the classic desert resort, where every turn brings a new pool (five in this case) and every employee demonstrates an eagerness to please. Designed with clusters of rooms meant to represent small villages, the resort has Moorish touches that blend well with the desert landscape. The Moroccan-inspired spa, perhaps the only one in Arizona with services that include a hammam ritual, is at the heart of things, but guests must go off-site for tennis and golf. The main restaurant, Prado—popular with locals—follows chef Claudio Urciuoli's slow-food, everything-local philosophy, with many dishes grilled on a wood fire.
When to go: April, when high season prices are dropping and the paint-peeling summer heat has not yet arrived.
Which room to book: In the Oasis village, the 18 "Exclusive" rooms have the best Camelback Mountain views.
