A year ago, I had Thanksgiving at the Aloft Phoenix Airport Hotel not because I was going somewhere but because we wanted to pretend like we were getting away. What better place to celebrate Thanksgiving than at a hotel that makes you feel at home.
The Aloft Phoenix Airport Hotel is only minutes from the terminal, reasonably priced at around $100 a night, provides free parking for short-term getaways, includes a serviceable swimming pool, and, most importantly, a prototypical, comfortable Aloft room.
We packed the essentials: the wine, the glasses, and Thanksgiving dinner. We left Scottsdale for the harrowing fifteen-minute drive from Scottsdale. Upon arrival, we were warmly greeted by the front desk who wondered why we had so much luggage but no departure tickets.
Entering the room, we unpacked all the food and drink, put out the do not disturb sign, then turned on the television. What followed was an endless feast of food and football.
So from everyone here at ThePointsOfLife (meaning me), Happy Thanksgiving and Go Lions!
