Have two hours to catch a movie? Or how about a whole weekend for a luxe staycation? Here is where Valley residents like to stay and play...


Best Resort and Best Relaxing Resort Pool
Westin Kierland Resort & Spa 
For years, Westin Kierland Resort & Spa has been a favored getaway for Scottsdalites craving a spa retreat or a golf outing. Agave, The Arizona Spa offers treatments to soothe guests from head-to-toe while the property’s greens have three 18-hole combinations of championship golf. For those wanting to wade the day away, Westin Kierland has several ways to cool off: at the ahh-inducing adults-only pool, by grabbing a raft and heading to the lazy river or while hitting the on-site action-packed water park. www.kierlandresort.com
