The sweet perfume of freshly mowed grass wafts through the air. A red-stitched ball rockets toward home plate in a rotating blur. A thunderclap echoes throughout the stadium as a bat wallops the ball, launching it like an oversized champagne cork and ushering in the new year of America’s Pastime. Major League Baseball Spring Training has arrived.
And, there’s no better place to celebrate the return of baseball than Gainey Suites Hotel in Scottsdale, Arizona. The prize of the Cracker Jack box, this desert diamond is almost within foul-ball range of numerous ballparks and features a luxurious lineup of accommodations.
In fact, 15 big league clubs sharpen their swings in Arizona’s Cactus League. Slip on your mitt and prepare for some baseball diamond mining, as Salt River Fields at Talking Stick - home of the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks - is just a couple miles away.
You’ll have a grand time at Scottsdale Stadium, where the San Francisco Giants begin their run for another title. And, the Midwest migrates South as the Chicago Cubs swing away at Hohokam Field and the Milwaukee Brewers play ball at Maryvale Baseball Park.
But, it’s not just the baseball that makes Gainey Suites a homerun. You’ll also adore Hall-of-Fame amenities worthy of a standing ovation.
“At the Gainey Suites Hotel, we try to create a more intimate and relaxed yet upscale boutique resort experience,” General Manager Rich Newman said. “Our staff is dedicated to making your visit to Scottsdale, Arizona a most wonderfully memorable one.”
