Ritz-Carlton, PhoenixFrom the outside, the Ritz-Carlton, Phoenix seems almost quaint: Surrounded by taller and swankier-looking condominiums, a spa, golf courses, a popular steakhouse — even Senator John McCain’s office — the Ritz isn’t even the ritziest piece of real estate on the block. With such perfect proximity, the Ritz-Carlton makes a perfect base for your next business trip. Clients will be impressed by the digs on the top floor, the only true executive club lounge in the city. Snacks and libations lighten the mood day and night, while a club concierge is on hand for more than 14 hours a day, ready to book your every dinner reservation, massage or tee time. Hint: Parking is limited to valet and a separate underground lot. The underground lot (in the rear of the hotel) is free and sparsely populated on Friday and Saturday nights, but valet is worth the upgrade on weekdays.
