Why We Love This Hotel

  • This AAA 4-Diamond family-friendly resort is absolutely massive, home to a conference center and a music venue

  • Guest rooms have balconies or patios from which guests can take in a desert sunset, and many have views of the McDowell Mountains
  • The full-service spa offers locally inspired treatments and you can get a massage or facial for $99 with this deal
  • Enjoy a 3-course steak dinner for two at the hotel's Meritage Steakhouse with this $79 deal


Find respite at the largest resort in Arizona; the JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge Resort & Spa spans over 300 acres in the Sonoran Desert. Guests are spoiled with views of the McDowell Mountains, 24-hour room service, a full-service spa, and balconies or patios on every room. 

Golfers can tee off at Wildfire Golf Club and choose between two championship golf courses designed by Arnold Palmer and Nick Faldo. Guests looking for a more languid stay can pop into an inner tube and drift down the lazy river, a feature of the 4-acre water complex. Indulge in one of the many treatments offered at Revive, the resort’s on-site spa, before meeting the family at one of six on-site restaurants.

Taking cues from Mother Nature, the hotel’s décor emphasizes water, fire, earth and sky, so the tranquility of the desert is brought into guest rooms. For those few guests who find reason venture off the property, Desert Ridge Marketplace, Historic Old Town Scottsdale, and the Phoenix Zoo are all choice day trips within a half hour drive of the hotel.

Light sleepers should be sure to opt for rooms away from the pool area which can be loud, even at night.
