The Royal Palms difference...

Royal Palms is nestled at the base of Arizona's Camelback Mountain, between downtown Scottsdale, and the Biltmore corridor and is only 7 miles from Phoenix International airport.
Regal boardrooms, intimate salons, a stately library and lushly landscaped outdoor function areas are each distinctly decorated to provide a comfortable, estate-like ambiance.
The resort provides three employees for every guest and a Conference Services Manager for each group. The staff is highly trained in gracious service, attention to detail and flexibility.
A la minute food service for all meeting events. Every dish served at conference events is delivered directly from the chef's kitchen with no standard detours to warmers. The result is a highly unique restaurant-style table service.
