SCOTTSDALE, AZ — If you feel comfortable going on a staycation, I scored you a Smart Shopper Deal of the Day, where you can beat the heat without breaking the bank. I'll also break down the safety measures.

The Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch opened in 1976 and it was reportedly the first conference resort in the country, according to the resort's website. Decades later, in 2015, the resort underwent a $10 million renovation transforming it into the hacienda retreat you see now. Read more about the resort's history.

Staycationers can enjoy the beauty of the Sonoran Desert, while still remaining close to everything Phoenix and Scottsdale have to offer. For those looking to hit the links, the resort is surrounded by the 36-hole McCormick Ranch Golf Club. Want to indulge? There is Kitchen West, Twisted Vine Pool Bar & Grill and Bar Six40, which is named after the 640 acres that became Scottsdale.

Are you ready for our Smart Shopper Deal of the Day? It's better than any other deal out there.


ABC15 viewers can book a room at The Scottsdale Resort -- the Single King or the Two Queen Deluxe McCormick Room -- for $89 a night. Talk about big savings! Normally those rooms would cost between $129-$225 a night.

Plus, the resort fee is waived! That would typically cost around $31. You could potentially save over $160 with our Deal of the Day!

Staycationers who book the deal will also receive a voucher for 15% off dinner at the resort's Kitchen West restaurant during your stay.

Here is how long the deal is good for: Vacations have to be booked by Monday, Aug. 24 at 6 p.m., though your actual stay can be anytime through the end of the year.

Again, you have to mention "ABC15 Smart Shopper" to get the deal. To make a reservation, call The Scottsdale Resort at 480-596-7562.

You can also book a stay on The Scottsdale Resort's website, but the website will only show available dates through Sept. 22, 2020. If you're looking to book a staycation for after Sept. 22, 2020, you must call the hotel to make a reservation. That number is 480-596-7562.


Upgrades are available. You may have the option to upgrade your room with different views for as little as $30 more. For example, if you wanted to upgrade either room type --- a Single King or Two Queen Deluxe McCormick Room -- to have a view of the golf course, the total cost would be $119. Being poolside would bring the total up to $164 per room. Parlor suites may be available as well for $209, or $239 with a poolside patio. Presidential suites can be rented for $389, based on availability.

Regardless, you would still get the resort fee waived and the voucher for `15% off dinner at Kitchen West.

There are currently no blackout dates, but that is subject to change.

FINE PRINT: This offer is specifically for Smart Shopper viewers and cannot be combined with any contracted rates or special offers. It is based on availability. Blackout dates may apply. A credit card will be required at time of booking in order to hold the reservation.


Because of the Coronavirus pandemic, there have been some changes. The Luna Spa is not open. Face masks are required in all public areas. Though they've always aimed to protect your well-being, they are taking some additional care and cleanliness steps to keep you healthy. A direct contact told me, "The resort follows all CDC & Hyatt Hotel guidelines and cleaning procedures as well as being certified AZSAFE+Clean by the Arizona Lodging & Tourism Association."
