Scottsdale

A unique blend of Southwestern charm and modern appeal, Scottsdale is a desert oasis. Often referred to as “the most Western town in the West,” the city has a personality rooted in the traditions of cowboy settlers. In recent years, Scottsdale has continued to grow, with fine restaurants, an art scene known throughout the country and some of the best shopping in the Southwest. To experience all Scottsdale has to offer, you won’t need a cowboy hat and boots, but you will need a Western explorer’s sense of adventure. There’s a treasure trove of discoveries to be found in the desert and Hyatt’s here to help you uncover them all in Scottsdale.
