Tall Order

I was at a conference in Scottsdale last year and really enjoyed the historic area, shops and trolley system. I stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn and found it pleasant, but average. This March, I am bringing my 11 year old son to see Giants baseball and sunshine for five days. I have been researching hotels and so far like the Holiday Inn Express, but am wondering if there is something a little nicer and more fun...indoor/outdoor space, fun pool, spa, or other amenities. Here's the kicker...I don't drive, and am a little car phobic (I go to Seattle and NYC regularly.....just hate those six lane suburban crossings) so need a hotel with local shuttle or a hotel close to a trolley stop. Budget is up to $300 a night. Thank you!

There's a fairly nice Courtyard Marriott in Old Town that's in walking distance of Scottsdale Stadium and a short cab ride to where the A's play.

I like Chaparral Suites in downtown Scottsdale - they really do offer alot for your rate there, including airport shuttle, full breakfast, free internet. It is about a block north of Old Town area, close to trolleys. It is a former Embassy Suites, so you get some extra space in your room. It is not the newest in town, but one of the best values and always books up for spring training with repeat visitors, great for families.

(By the way, i have a webcam bookmarked for a live cam in Ketchikan, check it often, especially during our hot summers, brings back memories of living in Anchorage in the 60's and a few cruise stops there recently, lovely place!!)
