Hotel Sweet

Craving the beach? No problem. Hop in the car, drive west for five hours, and spend a couple hundred bucks on gas just to feel the waves on your feet. Screw that! Stay here for free and dip your toes in the beachside infinity pool at the new W Hotel Scottsdale. The 24-hour oasis features lounging pods, private cabanas, and sunblock service (we imagine that means hot cabana boys and beach bunnies slathering sunscreen on your back). The modern, glass-encased resort isn’t taking overnight guests until October, but that shouldn’t stop you from salivating over its new sushi joint, Zen waterscapes, and the first Bliss Spa in Arizona. Seriously, could desert life get any better?
