Probably not enough info to give you the best answer because price will dictate my answer but on an open budget I would say the Scottsdale Princess. Right next to both TPC courses and close to many other good public courses. Great spot for the family and pool, food are top notch.

Remember that it's cooling off down here (low 60's today) and the pool, even when heated, can feel cold.

Pinnacle or Monument, not a big difference in the two.

The Princess is on the property of the TPC Scottsdale.  The Stadium course is the site of the Phoenix Open, it's an OK course, but awful from a value standpoint because it is WAY overpriced.  There is also the Champions course, which is also OK and overpriced, although not as overpriced as the Stadium.  If you like to walk, they have an unadvertised walking rate around $50 which makes it a much better value.

Will you have a car?  A short drive will take you to a number of better choices than the TPC.

I'm not much of a traveler but I have family in Scottsdale that I am visiting in February and we want to stay at a decent hotel with a spa for the ladies in the group. I'm sure my uncle has some good recommendations on courses so not too concerned about where we play. I might play a round with him and a round by myself somewhere else. Wouldn't mind walking the Champions course for $50! That sounds like a great deal!

So, any recommendations on a nice hotel for the ladies to enjoy a spa day?

Overall the best is Whirwind:  Aji Spa and 2 courses plus the Casino 5 min away for later

loved the four seasons, the pool at the princess was great...
