Best Resort (Runner Up)
Arizona Biltmore Resort & Spa
The Biltmore, one of Arizona’s first resorts, came in at a superclose second in this category. This Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired 39-acre property boasts more than 800 rooms, eight pools and so much unique historic charm. Pre-dinner drinks at the Wright Bar send guests back in time, while modern cuisine at Wright’s at the Biltmore restaurant keeps our palates present. www.arizonabiltmore.com.

Best Resort Dining
Talavera at Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North
Located right beside the Onyx Bar, Talavera, the resort’s signature restaurant, welcomes guests to a magical dining experience with romantic patio seating that overlooks the city lights below. While indoor seating is also very stylish, the sexy outdoor fireplaces and the dramatic views from the alfresco tables are what make this restaurant the winner in this category. Prime cuts of meat and seafood dominate the menu here, but be sure to inquire about special tasting menus and wine dinners, as those options might help with the difficult task of choosing among all the delicious dishes. www.fourseasons.com/scottsdale.
Best Lobby Bar
Onyx Bar & Lounge at Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North
The Onyx Bar & Lounge is a peaceful place to grab a pre- or post-dinner drink, or to take in happy hour (3-6 p.m.) and a sunset. Indoor and outdoor seating provide for great people-watching and star-gazing, and voters love how each drink order is accompanied by a complimentary snack. PS: It’s called Onyx Bar because of the massive slabs of gorgeous onyx that frame the bar. www.fourseasons.com/scottsdale.
