Fairmont Scottsdale Princess

Time for the second installment of our Southwest USA trip!

We began the tour by staying at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess & Resort. A stay at any Fairmont property is an astounding treat, and this five-star location was no exception. We only wished we could have stayed longer!

Not only are the rooms exquisitely appointed, but the park-like setting and multitude of gardens provide the perfect backdrop for leisure. As we explored through the grounds, we were amazed at the abundance of wildlife, particularly adorable bunnies.

After a relaxing afternoon, we enjoyed the welcome dinner at the LV Bistro and got acquainted with our fellow tour companions. It was a great beginning for the scenic adventures ahead of us.
