hey Edyta! FI and I just went to Arizona for a long weekend in Feb for VDay. We stayed in Scottsdale - i definitely wouldn't stay in Phoenix.

 

If you can, go to this restaurant, Saraha recommended it and it was AMAZING!

 

Quiessence Restaurant and Wine Bar

 

we stayed at Hotel Scottsdale, it was OK but not that luxurious, great location and decent price. kind of like a re-vamped old motor lodge

 

Hotel Scottsdale in Scottsdale, AZ

 

here is the thread about the trip with some pics and some of the AZ girls posted about a really sweet hotel in there.

we LOVED AZ - have a great time :)

There are some really cool hotels here. It kinda depends on what you are looking for. I will do some thinking and get back on here tonight with a list for you.

 

What kind of hotel are you wanting and resturants?

 

Modern/Hip next to all the hot bars and clubs

 

Romantic more secluded.... nice pools just to relax?

 

Romantic restuants?

 

Fun atomsphere?

 

Just let me know what your taste is and what you want and Ill let you know where to go!!!

FYI Hotel Valley Ho is a very cool hotel. But not sure if it is the style your looking for, very modern hip/upperclass type of hotel.

The Royal Palms is the most romantic hotel I know. It's small & boutique. Tons of weddings happen there,

 

The Valley Ho is great! Very hip & the pool scene is crazy on the weekends!

 

There are tons of great places to stay out here. And tons of great places to eat. I work at most of the hotels out here for work & am happy to give you any ideas.

 

P.S. Why oh why is he a Cardinals fan? smile35.gif

Valley Ho is awesome. They have a cool mexican place right next door called Old Town Tortilla Factory. Really cool atmosphere.

 

Royal Palms would also be an awesome choice!

 

I would totally stay in scottsdale. There are TONS of great places to eat, shop and play.

 

I'm new to AZ, but I just went out on a desert jeep tour and it was the most awesome thing I've done here so far. Learned all about the desert, which sounds lame, but it was so great. I would toally recommend it.

The Boulders is pretty sweet too. I haven't personally stayed there, but I hear it is amazing and very very well known for their hot rock massages which are amazing. It is more up north in a little town called Carefree. Its still only about 20 mins at most from town. A ways away from the stadium though.

I haven't been to the Hotel Ho, but that was where the photog I was gonna go with for my BD shoot recommended.

    • We just had a destination wedding and both my girls were flower girls!  The dresses from princessly were perfect!  Lots of complements! Would definitely recommend them!  Very reasonably priced.
    • I just want to say I got the best flower girl dresses on Princessly. It was very reasonably priced, they customized the dress to fit my daughter and it came within a couple of weeks. My daughter looked amazing and so did her cousin (who also wore the dress). The company was so easy to deal with and I’m so happy I chose them! Here are a couple of pics! 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
