Scottsdale – Part 2 (Camelback Inn)


We stayed at the JW Marriott Camelback Inn during our Scottsdale getaway.  It was the perfect place to stay with the littles.  Plenty of entertainment and open space for them and for us.  Each day looked very much the same: eat breakfast at the same table at Rita’s Kitchen, venture off campus for a littles-centered outing, return to the hotel and put our suits on, spend a few hours splashing in the pool, eat dinner at the pool restaurant, chase jack rabbits and lizards back to the room, shower, read books, and put the littles to sleep.  Once out, we adults enjoyed the opportunity to listen to some live music at the Rita’s Kitchen patio and even finish an actual conversation with out getting interrupted.

The rooms are well equipped to fit 5 people (mom, 3 littles and babysitter); we had two full beds, a pull out couch, room for the pack and play, a small kitchenette (absolutely ideal when traveling with the littles especially one still learning to eat non-purreed foods) and a perfect sized bathroom with an extra sink.  The hotel staff was super accommodating throughout our entire stay starting with rearranging our room assignments so my sister’s family could have an adjoining room.

  1. Open grassy area for the littles to run around


2.  Beautiful family pool with plenty of umbrellas to escape the beating sun if need be


3. Rita’s Kitchen Patio for live entertainment every night.  Such a peaceful and comfortable venue
