Chaparral Suites is in Scottsdale at Chaparral Rd just north of Fashion Square Mall – Chaparral Rd has a light. Parking
is in the rear – two large parking lots Note: best to enter from the middle
elevator for the 4th Floor Grille.
From the 101 freeway exit Chaparral Rd and go west. Just prior to Scottsdale Rd enter the side drive at 4th Floor Grille and come up that elevator – it is in the center of the hotel complex. There is an awning marked 4th Floor Grille.
This is the easiest way in – not through the lobby. The parking lots are in the back of the complex.
