Baseball fans — particularly those loyal to the Oakland A’s and the San Francisco Giants — will be thrilled to learn that Hotel Valley Ho, located in Old Town Scottsdale, is offering a spring training package that, we think, hits one out of the park.
Situated less than a mile from Scottsdale Stadium (training venue for the Giants) and less than two miles from the Phoenix Municipal Stadium (training venue for the A’s), Hotel Valley Ho is an ideal home base from which to experience the Bay Area teams’ pre-season action.
The Spring Training Package includes a Signature Guest Room and breakfast at ZuZu each morning, VIP nightclub access and a Westcor discount shopping book for Scottsdale Fashion Square. And getting to the Scottsdale Stadium couldn’t be easier: guests can hop on one of the Scottsdale Downtown Trolleys, which makes frequent stops near the hotel and is free to ride, and then simply transfer to the Giants shuttle.
After catching the players catch some fly balls, you can relax poolside, take advantage of that shopping book at Fashion Square (the largest mall in the Southwest and the “it” place to shop in town), or retire to a booth at Hotel Valley Ho’s Trader Vic’s restaurant.
With a Polynesian theme and lots of Tiki flair, Trader Vic’s is a more than appropriate spot to celebrate the arrival of spring and all the good weather that comes along with it. After you get in from the games, you and your party can recount the day’s best plays while enjoying such drinks as the Trader Vic’s Mai Tai and the Scottsdale Cactus Bloom. And happy hour is perfectly timed to give you the best deals after the action ends at the stadiums: Enjoy happy hour prices Monday through Saturday, from 4 to 6 p.m., then again from 9 to 11 p.m. (catch live music on Friday and Saturday nights!), and on Sundays from 4 p.m. to close.
The Spring Training Package at Hotel Valley Ho is available from Feb. 27 through March 30 and rates start at $249 per night.
The Hotel Valley Ho is located at 6850 E. Main St. in Downtown Scottsdale 602.502.3958
