Royal Palms Resort and Spa

5200 East Camelback Road, Phoenix, AZ 85018
4 reviews

Some hotels feel like they came out of a box: plopped down, prefabricated and ready to run. The Royal Palms is different. Its growth feels natural. What started as a single house backed up to Camelback Mountain in 1929 has expanded over the years to cover 8.5 acres of mountainside property. The place is gorgeous. Everywhere you look is green, ...

    Desert Botanical Gardens

    3.2 mi from Royal Palms Resort and Spa
    75 reviews

    Always a must see, especially if you wonder what does grow in Arizona, in spite of our reputation as a desert only. There is a lot more than meets the eye to Arizona. This is a great way to experience the outside even if you don't want to travel far to do it. Once there you also have to try ...

    Camelback Mountain

    1.2 mi from Royal Palms Resort and Spa
    59 reviews

    This is the quintessential hike when visiting or first moving to Phoenix; you might even call it a rite of passage. This challenging mountain has two main routes to tackle - one is a shorter distance to the top than the other, but much steeper. Go early in the morning (5 a.m. early not 9 a.m.) to beat the crowds ...

    You will most likely get lost in this mall. They have every shop you can imagine. If you wanna shop head to fashion square. I recommend stopping at Kona Grill for an outdoor lunch!

    Papago Park

    17 reviews

    Papago Park is beautiful. The rock formations are like the ones you see in Sedona, AZ. It is right next to the Zoo, so plan your day accordingly. Great place to picnic before or after the zoo. Let the little ones or big ones climb around on the rocks (but watch for snakes and scorpions). The ground squirrels are always ...

    Phoenix Zoo Lights

    3.66 mi from Royal Palms Resort and Spa
    14 reviews

    Since Phoenix doesn't receive snow for Christmas, this is truly a magical place for the family. Millions of lights take shape of zoo animals, fill the trees and dance to Christmas music. Plenty of things to do as you look at the lights. Plus hot chocolate and other goodies to eat. It is our yearly family outing.

    Echo Canyon Trail and Recreation Area

    Seriously difficult trail involving bouldering and strenuous hiking. Worthwhile if you're up to it, with beautiful views of the city all around from the top. However, if you're not an experienced hiker, or have heart problems, just do another nearby trail.
