The Arizona Bitmore: Frank Lloyd Wright’s Masterpiece
As many people from cold climates such as the Midwest want to escape the dreary endless winter for some relaxation in the desert sun, rates are high during the in demand winter season.
Although a summer visit brings with some negatives (noisy pool parties, too warm pool temps, and uncomfortable weather often reaching well into the 100’s), there is one main advantage of a summer visit, and that is drastically reduced rates and special seasonal promotion packages!
Once the winter crowds have disappeared, The Bitmore begins to offer special summer rates to entice locals who would otherwise likely not stay at the resort. The all inclusive summer special is a really great deal : the ideal stay cation for Arizona locals looking to score a great deal close to home as opposed to a pricey flight somewhere with extensive time off required.

As part of the Summer All-Inclusive promotion, you will receive a daily breakfast buffet for 2, lunch for 2, dinner for 2, complimentary self parking (a $12 value), the resort fee included (a $28 value), and 20% off all spa services. Those who show proof of Arizona residency will also receive a $25 resort credit to be used anywhere throughout the property. This deal really is a fantastic value especially in the food dept as the lunch credit is $62 and the dinner $120! Because everything is included, a summer vacation to The Bitmore is a stress free little getaway for any Arizona residents looking for a laid-back, relaxing escape in the sun.

Lawn games. When you tire of the pool, head over for some old-fashioned fun! Enjoy a life size chess board and a classic game of croquet! Lawn chess has been a popular pastime at the Bitmore since opening in the 1920s!
Espresso drinks at The Cafe. The Bitmore offers a small shopping area which includes a great little cafe where you can pick up a tasty espresso drink (they brew the fantastic Illy Espresso) and a few treats (try the chocolate covered strawberries or macaroons!). The Americano and Mochas here were just fantastic, plus they offer almond milk which makes the drink more creamy and decadent.
Wright’s Restaurant. Wright’s is the fancier of the 2 Bitmore dining choices. Wright’s features live piano music, a menu that focuses on local produce and ingredients, and a more modern upscale setting. The Sunday Brunch is a bit pricier, although takes place in a more elegant setting with a larger variety of breakfast choices to choose amongst. The Wright’s Bar area is elegant and quiet: the perfect place to kick back with a drink after a long day at the pool. The outdoor bar area is also very relaxing – as you sip your morning espresso, you can look out onto the beautiful gardens.
