PHOENIX - Want to relax for an evening in one of the hottest new hotels in the world?
One of the ranked hotels is right here in our own backyard: The Hotel Palomar in Phoenix.
Hotel Palomar was listed as one of the "hot new hotels" by TripAdvisor this year alongside destinations in Canada, Italy, Peru, Vietnam, and Spain.
The hotel is located in Downtown Phoenix's CityScape area, an area emerging with nightlife, food, shopping and exciting events throughout the year.
One TripAdvisor traveler told TripAdvisor that Hotel Palomar is "exactly what I'd design if I were dreaming up the ideal hotel," according to a news release.
The hotel offers a complimentary wine reception, an outdoor pool and lounge amongst the beautiful desert-city skyline.
For travelers with their furry family members, Hotel Palomar is also pet-friendly.
Hotel Palomar guests can enjoy their amenities for around $157 nightly, a price much lower than the "hot new" Dusit Thani in the Maldives, which starts at $945 per night or the Trump International Hotel and Tower in Toronto that comes in below $500 per night.
Other hotels that were recognized by TripAdvisor include the Apex Temple Court in the United Kingdom, The NoMad hotel in New York, the InterContinental Danang Resort in Vietnam and the Monastero Santa Rosa Hotel and Spa in Italy.
