Phoenix is a hotbed of luxury resort developments.
The city is home to such popular destinations as The Arizona Aquarium and Aquarium of the Pacific.
And for a few hundred thousand dollars, you can get a view of the Arizona desert.
The most expensive part of Phoenix is its desert-side hotel chain, Phoenix Sky Harbor, which has become a destination for many vacationers seeking to experience the world’s most expensive city.
And the resort community has been busy promoting the new hotel as the “best destination in the world” in a press release from Phoenix Sky, which also released an official website touting the hotel.
“We have the world-class resort community here in Phoenix, and we think Phoenix Sky is the world leader in luxury resort hotel and guest experience,” said Jim Cairncross, executive vice president of marketing for Phoenix Sky.
“Our goal is to be the most exciting destination in Arizona for visitors who want to experience it for themselves.”
The hotel is in a former gas station with a large outdoor terrace.
It has three-bedroom suites and an open-plan restaurant.
It is part of a $6.2 billion, 24-story, luxury resort complex that includes the new Arizona Aquaria and Aquaria of the Atlantic.
The resort also boasts more than 300 acres of natural amphitheater, an indoor pool and a restaurant.

And while the hotel has been praised for being the most exclusive in the country, some critics are worried that the hotel will be an eyesore to the community.
“I think the public is concerned about the impact it will have on the Phoenix area,” said John Schuster, an attorney who is representing some of the hotel’s tenants.
“The hotels new owners should have consulted with the local community first before putting in a new property.
The hotel will make the area even worse than it already is.”
According to the Phoenix Business Journal, hotel occupancy rates are currently at a record low.
The Phoenix Business Review recently described the hotel as “overpriced, underused, and, frankly, not really the best in the entire world.”
