Checkout is 8 pm?
Obviously he's asking if there'd be any way to checkout 8pm.

Iím planning to visit Scottsdale soon, Iím looking for a high-end hotel (any brand) preferably something that can be booked with free night vouchers or points,
I see so many nice ones and itís hard too choose, can someone please advise?

Preferable but not necessity,
Resort style,
Private pool,
On site attractions.

Any advice is very appreciated!

Sorry, I totally misunderstood - due to way it was worded it sounded to me like checkout was at 8pm but it isn't late enough since its only 1/2 hr after Shabbos is over.  I was quite surprised that there's even such a thing as checkout at 8 so I questioned it. My bad.

Hi I'm in middle of intense itinerary planning for mid of March of AZ UT and NV...
I plan on doing Bryce in half a day till sunset, and Zion the next first part of day, I have a reservation in Springdale for that in between night, but I hear the drive from Bryce to Zion is really dangerous at night through the 89 and Zion Park,
My question is how bad is it and would it be better to take a 45 minute longer route going west to the 15 then coming in from the west to Springdale. Is that way better or both ok or both not recommend and stay instead in panguitch near Bryce?
Thanks

You mean that you wouldn't skip it by day and that should do it in daylight?

Don't know which direction you're coming from, but we got to Bryce at night and drove up to a gorgeous starry lookout , hiked the next day and drove on in the afternoon. I found that being in the place the night before worked out very well for us.

I would recommend staying over in/near Bryce.
