Castle Hot Springs has been open since 1896!  Just an hour from Phoenix, this is truly an Arizona gem. Over the decades, celebrities and dignitaries from around the world found their way to the healing waters of Castle Hot Springs.   The guest register includes magnates of industry like the Rockefeller and the Pew families plus the Vanderbilts and Astors.  President Theodore Roosevelt stayed at the resort during the dedication of the Roosevelt Dam.  In the 1940’s the resort was used as a military rehabilitation center to treat veterans wounded during World War II, including future president John F. Kennedy.
