Weekend Getaway to Four Seasons Scottsdale
The Four Seasons Scottsdale at Troon North
A long weekend at the Four Seasons Scottsdale at Troon North was the perfect way to escape Chicago’s frigid winter for a few days. My fiance and I had a wedding to attend in Scottsdale over Martin Luther King Day weekend, so we decided to go a little early to make a trip out of it.
I had never been to Scottsdale, but have always heard great things, so I was stoked! The Four Seasons Scottsdale at Troon North allowed us to unwind, indulge, and ditch our puffy winter jackets for a few days!
Here’s a 60-second recap video of our amazing stay!
We checked into a super fun and romantic suite for the weekend. It was fantastic! The suite included two bathrooms, two fireplaces, a separate living area, spacious patio, an outdoor shower and the best part – a private plunge pool. The temperature of the pool was perfect and so relaxing. It was hard to get out!
Watch the video below for a 60 second tour of our suite.
The 1,000 sq. ft. suite is known as the Kiva Suite and is nicely decorated in contemporary southwestern style. I cozied up to the fireplace before we left for the wedding rehearsal dinner. (By the way, the dress is Slate & Willow.)
The Four Seasons Scottsdale at Troon North is tucked in the foothills of North Scottsdale, next to Pinnacle Peak with hiking trails. It is not far from the downtown scene, but still far enough that it is secluded and serene. There are stunning mountain views during the day, and plenty of stars at night. With its adobe-style architecture, the resort blends into the natural backdrop of the Sonoran Desert.
You are in good hands with Chef Mel
Mecinas at Talavera, a fine-dining steak and seafood restaurant.
I eat a gluten-free diet and my fiancé is a vegetarian, but the staff had no problem accommodating us. They even had delicious gluten-free bread, which is rare in restaurants!
My fiancé enjoyed the vegan pappardelle, roasted brussels sprout salad (I ate some of that too – so good!), chimichurri fried rice, and the chocolate soufflé. My cousin lives in Scottsdale, so she joined us for dinner. We both had Scottish salmon with garlic parmesan mashed potatoes, autumn vegetables, and hibiscus glazed berries. Delish!
By the way, our servers Andre and Mira were outstanding!
The Sunsets & Service
Happy hour on the patio of Onyx Bar & Lounge, which is adjacent to Talavera, is a must! We came here for a drink before dinner, and caught the most beautiful sunset! The colors were truly breathtaking.
The patio has outdoor heaters, but I am always cold, so the server brought over a blanket. I thought that was a nice touch and speaks to the level of service you can expect from the Four Seasons Scottsdale at Troon North.
Here is a 15-second clip of the sunset at happy hour.
The pool and service at the Four Seasons Scottsdale at Troon North truly helps you destress and feel like you are on vacation. They have a large pool open to everyone, a smaller pool reserved for adults, and a hot tub which are open 24 hours a day.
Things to do:
You can pamper yourself at the spa, hike up Pinnacle Peak which has a trail that starts from the resort, play tennis, golf, go horseback riding, or just relax in the hot tub and gaze at the stars. We mostly decompressed and took advantage of our private plunge pool, although I did make it to the fitness center once – which was nice.
Best time to Go
Fall and winter are great times to visit since the weather is around 70 degrees. We experienced comfortable weather in the 60s for our trip in mid-January. Don’t worry, the Four Seasons keeps the pool water at the right temperature, so taking a dip feels good year round.
If you come during the summer, you can expect 100 degree days. If you don’t mind the heat, visiting during the summer can land you some good deals.
Couples in search of a getaway, I suggest the Four Seasons Scottsdale this winter. Valentine’s Day is coming up, and that private plunge pool is calling your name! 🙂
