If you've never stayed at a Four Seasons, I'll tell you what sets them apart.
From the time you arrive on a Four Seasons property to the time you check out, you can expect to be transported to a place of old-fashioned Hollywood luxury and manners. Uniformed bellmen will tip their hats at you. The concierge, outfitted in a pressed polo and genuine smile, will be ready with answers to any of your pressing travel questions. Pool attendants will wander the pool area with complimentary treats. And your children will be delighted by kid-sized chairs, robes, and dining utensils.
Whether you are traveling solo, as a couple, with your kids, or part of a business group, there are a number of different guestroom and casita options to fit your needs. The decor at Four Seasons Scottsdale at Troon North fits effortlessly into the desert landscape without being boring. The rooms are inviting and cheerful with crisp white sheets, vibrant seating, and luxurious bathrooms.
While there is no waterslide or lazy river at Four Seasons Scottsdale at Troon North, the large family pool is desirable for all ages. Pool toys - like water noodles, water footballs, and oversized water pillows - are available for your use. Adjacent to the family pool, you'll find a darling toddler pool, which is under 2 feet all the way around the perimeter. The bottom of the pool features charming illustrations of turtles and other friendly-looking sea creatures. If you prefer a bit of solitude, you can set up for the day at the adults-only pool.

We've popped in at the kids clubs of many high-end resort chains and Kids For All Seasons is the largest, most interesting, and most inviting among them. Each room is themed (Super Mario Bros in the wii room, Star Wars in the xbox room, Winnie-the-Pooh in the toddler room, etc) and very clean.
