JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa
Surrounded by the pristine Sonoran desert with grand views of the McDowell Mountains, Desert Ridge is located on 316 acres where Phoenix meets Scottsdale. This AAA four diamond award-winning resort is just 20 minutes north of Sky Harbor International Airport wth easy access to the new Loop 101 freeway. Opened in November 2002, JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa is Arizona's largest resort, and also big on luxury. Inspired by the grandeur of the Grand Canyon, Desert Ridge redefines the resort experience. Two 18-hole championship golf courses, Marriott's first Revive Spa, a 28,000 sq ft European-style spa and fitness center and four acres of swimming pools and shimmering waterways set the mood for a relaxing getaway. Panoramic views of crimson-hued mountains, fiery Arizona sunsets and the picturesque, cactus-studded Sonoran Desert only add to the resort's serene setting. The elements of nature--fire, water, earth and sky--have been woven into the resort's architectural design to let every guest experience the pleasures of the distinctive surroundings. Upon arrival, guests are rewarded for their journey as they are greeted by the sound of splashing fountains under the sun-dappled porte cochere. Stepping into the expansive grand lobby, guests are dazzled by the sight of stunning floor-to-ceiling windows opened wide spilling out onto sparkling waterways and majestic palm-lined pathways. The resort's guest rooms feature a balcony or patio overlooking wildflower gardens, swimming pools, lakes, waterways and golf course or mountain views. There are four presidential suites, four hospitality suites, 35 luxury suites and 38 executive suites, offering every room combination for groups large and small.
