Got a good deal to stay at the Kierland Villas at the end of January. Anyone know how Shabbos friendly it is - locks, a/c, lights, doors, etc ...?

very shabbos friendly. Standard hotel locks. Nothing automated. It's within the eiruv so that definitely helps

Will be visiting Scottsdale in February.
I see that there are many restaurants on this website ​that are not mentioned in the Wiki.
Is the Wiki just not updated or is it the opposite?

Can anyone recommend a specific area to go to in the Grand Canyon ? Coming from Phoenix so the closer the better. Mainly for views but wouldn’t mind a mild short hike. Thx

Is it the same kind of tour as the pink Jeep Sedona ? I have done that in the past and I’m not really looking for that kind of thing.

Same company.   
Never did any tour with them before.   I'm not the hiking type so I decided to book with them and hope they will cover it nicely.
