Easter weekend is busy at this place. Had great rooms and fantastic service. Nights by the fire with live music out on the patio were a highlight. Pool was a little crowded so went to the cabana area and sat in shade and had some drinks. Great location close to lots of shopping and entertainment. Great spa. No complaints and... More

We stayed here over Easter weekend so it was quite busy which is to be expected. The whole hotel is beautifully landscaped and decorated. Check in was fast. We layers by the pools during our first afternoon. It was crazy busy. Really wasn't impressed by the amount of litter around our beach chairs. We got our drinks quickly, pretty good... More

We visited relatives who live in Phoenix for Easter, but didn't stay with them because their house is small. This hotel was 10 minutes away from their house and they love it so much so they stayed with us. The service was amazing and there is so much to do on site. Lots of pools, a lazy river, and on...

Rooms were spacious and pool, lawns and gardens were great for kids. Restaurant food was good but food at the pool was awful. Service could definitely improve. We called in the morning of check-in to hold a roll away bed since we were coming in later in the day and the person I spoke to said that one would be... More

My son and I stayed at the JW Mariott at Desert Ridge the weekend of April 18, 2014. This would have fallen into the 'Staycation' catagory as we live locally. Since being built resort has loomed large in the north part of Phoenix. It is/has been the site of lots of cooking competitons. The grounds are huge with at least... More

Amazing place and we enjoyed every minute! The pool area is huge and can be tough to find a seat on a busy day. Margarita's were delicious! Our room was beautiful and very clean. You will not want to leave this place. It has everything...food, pool, spa, golf, and activities for the kids. The breakfast buffet has everything you could... More

Needed a break from the horrible winter in the Northeast so we decided to fly to Phoenix for a short trip. Spent 5 nights at Desert Ridge. Weather was perfect! Found the resort to wonderful. Staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. Gordon, the evening doorman, made us feel like family. Troy and Amber, bartenders at the Meritage Steakhouse, went out... More

We liked our 2 days at the Marriott, but had to move on as the hotel was full for one night with a convention and there were no rooms remaining. Beds were very soft if that is too your liking. Staff and service was good. Very much enjoyed the Italian Restaurant.

I knew it was going to be a nice stay when a doorman opened the door for me upon arrival. I had requested early check-in and were able to check in at 11am. This resort has a little of everything for everybody...from the restaurants to the pool to the lounging areas outside to the lawn where many children were playing.... More

Very large resort hotel. Nice pools and desert grounds. Accommodating hotel staff, food is overpriced and average quality. Rooms are typical Marriott and are in need of updating. Grounds are overrun with children so if you're looking for a quiet, intimate getaway experience, this is not the place for you. Wildfire Golf courses are challenging and of good value for... More
