And there's no better accommodation to rest and recharge than a Stay Alfred travel apartment. Forget the same old same old of a hotel or the guessing game of a Scottsdale vacation rental. A Stay Alfred travel apartment combines the best of both worlds: Something unique, but professionally managed and maintained for zero worries.
Get Your Retail Therapy on in Kierland
If you're a big spender or an enthusiastic window shopper, than Kierland is exactly where you want to be. This Scottsdale neighborhood is dominated by two shopping malls: Kierland Commons and the Scottsdale Quarter. Kierland Commons is comprised of 70 of the best shopping and dining you could imagine, including staple luxury brands like Anthropologie, Crate & Barrel, and Athleta. The Commons is also home to some of the district's great dining spots like The Mission, a Latin-cuisine gem serving beautiful plates and smooth cocktails in a casual (but elegant) atmosphere. For free events, like a concert series or a kitten adoption+ yoga event, the Scottsdale Quarter is the place to be. There's also a movie theater showing the latest blockbusters for classic date nights. The Quarter offers some more casual eats, like the Dog Haus (where hot dogs are the star of the menu) and Creamistry (an ice cream joint where science is front and center). If you prefer to spend your days on the green, you're in luck: Scottsdale has some of the most beautiful golf courses nestled in amongst the hills and cacti.
Ascend to High-End Accommodations
A Stay Alfred at Ascend travel apartment is where you go to rest and recuperate. Fine amenities can be found inside and out – from stunning wood floors and high ceilings in your apartment to stunning views of the McDowell Mountains.
Your Stay Alfred travel apartment has been freshly renovated with distinctive wood-style floors, lux furnishings, and plenty of natural light. Wiggle your toes through the plush carpeting in the bedroom, and twirl around in your own walk-in closet. Go all “Top Chef” with a suite of stainless-steel appliances, including a gas range. Spread out your meal on quartz countertops, and dine on your own private patio or balcony. And in the winter, there's a sweet little fireplace for cozying up.
Throughout the property, you'll find tasteful and interesting amenities to keep you well occupied (or not, it's up to you!). You'll stay active while you're here with access to an on-site volleyball court, tennis court, and a state-of-the-art gym. Stretch it out in the yoga room before taking a dip in one of the two resort-style pools. Make it a pool party! The pool deck includes private cabanas for sunbathing and napping, as well as cocktail service. Looking to practice your putt? There's a little nine-hole putting range here, too! Make your meals al fresco with plenty of options for outdoor dining: gazebos with fire pits, grills, and picnic tables. Grab a beer and head out for a game of cornhole in the white-sand entryway. And in the mornings when you need a pick-me-up, there's a clubhouse serving fresh coffee beverages.
Your Home (Away from Home) at Stay Alfred at Ascend
Certain home comforts are just too good to forgo. Like a full-size kitchen with all the fixin's (even if your best meal is grilled cheese). Or a washer and dryer just for you (because stains happen and who pays in quarters anymore?). And a bed that is just a bed – not a bed, a living room sofa, and a desk. We believe that home comforts should follow you no matter where you are. Couple that with easy, high-tech booking, plus professional cleaning prior to your arrival, and you have a vacation that feels like – well, home! For the most part, our on-site staff of property managers and housekeepers will be more like house elves than staff. They'll create comfort and ease for you without you ever noticing. But if something happens or you're not feeling it, we're there to help. Because you deserve a vacation free from pesky things like figuring out how to work a remote or replacing a lightbulb.
