The Fairmont Scottsdale Princess, an iconic destination resort in North Scottsdale, has been awarded AAA Five Diamond status for the 28th consecutive year, as announced last week.

First earned by the resort in 1991, the Princess is both the longest running Five Diamond property, and its 750 rooms also make it the largest in Arizona to earn the distinction, according to a press release.

“I could not be more proud of our colleagues for earning this prestigious designation,” said Jack Miller, regional vice president and general manager of the Princess, in a prepared statement. “For 28 consecutive years, this hotel has been the standard of luxury for our valued guests, and this achievement could not have happened without the hard work and dedication of our staff.”
