Close Enough to Be Connected, Far Enough Away to be Free...

The Radisson Fort McDowell Resort and Casino is its own world of fun, just minutes from Scottsdale. Here, on the beautiful lands of the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation, the Radisson Fort McDowell is more than a luxurious getaway, with Sleep NumberĀ® beds in select rooms. It features a 130,000-sq.-ft. casino, two championship Sonoran desert golf courses, a spa and its own center for Wild West adventures, all on site. Just minutes away is Old Town Scottsdale, with its eclectic mix of art galleries, retail, upscale dining, museums and nightlife.

Summertime is family time at the Radisson Fort McDowell Resort! The resort comes alive with entertainment like "dive-in" movies from the pool, and weekend barbecues. Kids eat breakfast free, and lunch and dinner is priced according to outdoor temperature. Check out the water play area!


Two spectacular 18-hole golf courses at the Radisson Fort McDowell Resort and Casino include the Chollo, which opened in December 2006, and the Saguaro, rated #16 in the nation among public courses; you won't believe the two-level clubhouse. Enjoy scenic desert golf, where the "echos are off the canyons, not the condos."


The Radisson Fort McDowell Resort and Casino is so truly luxurious that it is one of the very few resorts anywhere which was awarded the AAA Four-Diamond rating just six months after it opened. Among 245 rooms and suites you'll find everything you could dream, from the furnishing to the work stations to the panoramic views!


This resort hotel sits on untouched Native American land, and the onsite Fort McDowell Adventures helps you explore it! Take a guided nature walk along ancient trails, visit a sweat lodge and hear stories told in native Yavapie. Enjoy meals derived from the property's own self-sustaining farm!
