Award-winning hotels offer top-notch golf, spa, and family activities at up to 49 percent off

When the mercury starts to rise in the Southwestern United States, travelers can be sure one thing is not far behind: prices will drop at some of Arizona's best hotels, spas and golf courses.  To kick off summer, JW Marriott Desert Ridge in Phoenix and Camelback Inn and Spa in Scottsdale are offering outstanding deals on stays, golf, and spa—making summer the perfect time for a luxurious getaway. Savings include:

Buy One, Get One Half Off
All summer long, both The Spa at Camelback Inn and Revive Spa at Desert Ridge will offer half off a second spa treatment when two are booked. The offer is valid May 29-Sept 30 (excluding July 6-8 and September 1-3).

Unlimited Golf
Both properties offer guests as much golf as they can play during the summer months. At Camelback Golf Club and Wildfire Golf Club—both award-winning facilities—guests can arrive early and play as long as they wish as long as there is course availability. Guests can take advantage of the offer when booking the Escape Golf Package—with rates starting at just $189—at either property.

Kids Golf Free
Both Camelback and Desert Ridge offer free golf to all children under the age of 16, available after 3:00 p.m. each day.  Additionally, all summer long, kids eat free at any of Camelback's restaurants when accompanied by a paying adult.

In addition to these outstanding promotions, both resorts also offer spectacular savings on accommodation packages throughout the summer:
