ARIZONA, USA — Travel + Leisure magazine has named Castle Hot Springs the number 1 resort hotel in Arizona for the second year in a row.

Earlier this year, it also made Travel + Leisure's list of the top 500 hotels in the world.

Tucked up in the Bradshaw Mountains near Morristown, the 1,100-acre historic resort has been in operation for over a century.

The resort made its debut in 1896 and has hosted great American figures from the early 1900s like the Cabots, Vanderbilts, Wrigleys, Roosevelts, and Astors.
