Fit for a King: The Haute 5 Presidential Suites in Phoenix

Whether you’re an out-of-towner who wants to visit Phoenix in style, or you’re a local who’s looking to spend some time at a luxe resort for rest and relaxation, here are five of the Valley’s most sumptuous suites.

The Extreme Wow Suite at the W Scottsdale

Maybe the W calls this the Extreme Wow Suite because that’s what guests can’t stop saying once they see it. And packing a lot of luxury into its 1,540 square feet, the suite is just as comfortable as it is visually stunning. The cushy, modern atmosphere makes it tempting to guests to never leave the room, with highlights including a plush king-sized bed with a goose-down duvet, a built-in bar, 50-inch flatscreen HDTV, and a 1,300-square-foot private balcony with a view of the pool and Camelback Mountain. Make no mistake, this room is for those who want their own private lounge experience, as the suite is wired with high-tech sound and entertainment systems controlled by a touch-screen, along with XM Radio, ambient lighting, and high-speed Internet access.

The W Scottsdale is located at 7277 E. Camelback Road in Scottsdale (480) 970-2100

The Pinnacle Three Bedroom Suite at Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North

Decorated to exude a Southwest resort vibe, the 3,000-square-foot Pinnacle Suite at the Four Seasons is spacious and secluded, offering views of Sonoran Desert plants and cacti and Crescent Butte Mountain. An ideal choice for those planning an extended stay in the area, this suite has many of the comforts one likely left at home, including four beds, three full baths, four fireplaces, a large living room with high ceilings, generous patio space, and a private plunge pool. Extra special touches include a telescope for stargazing and two walk-out garden showers.

The Presidential Suite at The Westin Kierland Resort and Spa

Blending Old World elegance and contemporary design and accoutrements, the Presidential Suite at The Westin Kierland invites guests into a relaxing environment boasting oversized furnishings and Westin Signature Heavenly Beds. The 2,135-square-foot accommodations can make traveling for business types extraordinarily comfortable, with plenty of desk space and task lighting, as well as a master bath with a Roman-style tub for a long, warm soak after a day spent discussing business models and preparing presentations. Also, enjoy the armoire with a wet bar and the balcony’s view of the well-manicured golf course.

The Presidential Suite at The Phoenician

The Presidential Suite at The Phoenician has a distinct Manhattan townhouse feel about it, with white and cream-colored furnishings, gold and glass accents, darkly stained tables and shelves, and, of course, a grand piano in the center of the 2,400-square-foot space. This room is for those who travel with an entourage or want to entertain, as the suite includes a number of seating areas, a well-sized kitchen, a dining table that can accommodate 10, an outdoor fireplace, and a private pool-side cabana. The staff here knows how to treat its guests like royalty, even providing the Presidential Suite with fresh flowers each day throughout your stay.

The Presidential Suite at Fairmont Scottsdale

For a vibe that’s both worldly and dramatic, the Presidential Suite at Fairmont Scottsdale should be one’s first choice. Think dark hard wood floors, contemporary sculptures and art, and furnishings with a variety of unexpected textures and accents. Highlights of the suite’s upscale amenities are the grand four-poster bed and the deluxe granite tub, with the impressive parlor space filling nearly half the suite’s total 3,150 square feet. End the day here by enjoying a drink or two from the wet bar while seated on the balcony and taking in views of the resort’s pool and golf course, or watching a movie on the suite’s 50-inch flatscreen TV.
