Spa Day at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess

I love to take advantage of our Arizona summer specials, especially if they involve a favorite resort and spa such as The Fairmont Scottsdale Princess and its beautiful Well & Being Spa (formerly Willow Stream).  That's exactly what I did one summer afternoon with one of my best friends visiting from Boston.   We checked in early to the spa and started with a complimentary smoothie as part of a Travelzoo spa package, followed by a leisurely lunch at the private rooftop pool and a relaxing massage and facial.  We also booked an appointment at the salon to have our hair done, stopped for margaritas at La Hacienda, and finished with Happy Hour and dinner at Bourbon Steak - a perfectly luxurious day.
