If you go to Phoenix stay in Scottsdale at the W or the pheonican. The night life is downtown Phoenix is borderline non existent.

Phoenician is nice, but it's on a resort compound, while the W is much more central. Both are good, depends on what you prefer. Skip the JW Camelback. It's historic, but not in a good way.

We were going to go on a hike and had a hotel booked for a night. Texted him 5 min before arrival and when i was there to pick him up. He hopped in the shower. I got annoyed that he did that because i communicated beforehand to be ready. He didnt like that and said that he thinks that i think my time is more important than his... he canceled the trip and we are not speaking because of this incident... Am i crazy or something?
