Best Hotels in Scottsdale for Families

If you’d rather have a luxury family vacation in Scottsdale, there are a few fantastic resorts to consider. Click here to see them all on a map – with lots of photos and details!

Hyatt Regency Gainey Ranch

Officially called the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort & Spa At Gainey Ranch, this resort is on my personal bucket list! Read more to find out why I think it’s so drool-worthy.

First starters, the property is just beautiful. I’m not ashamed to say that I’ve driven by it many times and looked longingly on the grounds. The pool area is absolutely incredible, complete with water slides, a sand beach and a 2.5 acre “water playground” – see more pics here. For older kids and adults, there’s a spa, rock climbing wall, tennis courts, a putting green and family games like giant Jenga and chess.

Beyond the facilities, the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale offers great activities for the whole family to enjoy. Some highlights include guided nature walks, poolside games and Native American crafts. Every Friday afternoon there’s a 4pm presentation of Arizona birds of prey followed by a 5pm Native American dance performance. They have more live music every weekend too!

If you’re looking for a relaxing family vacation in Scottsdale where you can just kick back and hang out at a resort all day, this is it!

DoubleTree by Hilton Paradise Valley Resort Scottsdale

If you’re looking for a budget-friendly hotel in Scottsdale for families, the DoubleTree in Paradise Valley (technically an independent town surrounded by Scottsdale) is a great choice. It’s in an incredibly convenient location just a mile from Fashion Square and Old Town Scottsdale, which also puts it closer to lots of our favorite Phoenix attractions like Desert Botanical Garden and the zoo.

The DoubleTree has nine different pools with plenty of seating, plus a lovely outdoor dining area. There’s even a huge gym, a putting green, tennis courts and a spa for parents if they decide to take turns, bring the grandparents along or hire a babysitter for the day.

In a heart-warming departure from pretty much every other resort in the world, the DoubleTree in Scottsdale provides free parking to their guests. Shocking, I know! But if you’re spending a week in Scottsdale for spring break, for example, $35 per day for parking can really add up.

For families what want a balance of resort time and checking out all of the fun family activities in Scottsdale and Phoenix, the DoubleTree Resort in Scottsdale provides a great balance and a great value.
