The pool was the highlight of this hotel. Kids loved the lazy river and the number of tubes to use around river. The slide was awesome.The restaurants were awesome and the service is top notch. We thought the rooms were very quiet, great shower and separate bath in our room was nice. Overall would go back.

Beautiful grounds, a pleasure to walk around. The pool areas are beautiful, relaxing. I especially enjoyed the spa area. The whirlpool has a very rough bottom and its smaller than expected. Clean and nicely appointed locker rooms. The steam room was very hot. Our room had a fantastic view. The bed was exceptionally comfortable. The only negative was that the... More

We were not disappointed with our second stay at the JW Desert Ridge Marriott in Phoenix. The grounds were well manicured and the different venues/spaces on the property offer a variety of options for events/parties/receptions,etc. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We will return for a third visit sometime in the future. It was also easy to walk across... More

We go here every year. Beautiful and well maintained property, great manager, lovely staff. Shuttle bus to shopping mall, restaurants, Albertsons etc which is just a few minutes drive. Rooms are well furnished and very clean and regularly updated. Fabulous quality as you would expect from Marriott. Pool grill and bar - can't really comment on the food as we're... More

We decided to visit family in the area and selected this resort due to the pools and amenities to occupy our 4-year-old. PERFECT -- loved it quite a bit! The rate was a bit expensive but we found a deal which included a $100/night resort credit -- used to offset food and anything charged to the room (the only exception... More

Had a wonderfully relaxing stay in Palm Springs-fled the disastrous Kentucky weather and felt like we had won the lottery when we made it to the beautiful valley. The hotel is lovely, with a great view of the mountains-very nice part of the city. Highlight was our early morning walk and coffee by the pool (being from eastern time zone... More

We stayed there for 3 nights and signed up for the Griffen Room package. which is like a club level amenity. I don't remember the price difference for this perk but we made the most of it.

This is an outstanding facility. The staff are genuinely friendly and helpful. Though very busy attending to the multiple needs of their guests, the staff still happily listen to each person's peculiar requests. I was a little concerned about the "huge" cream on the top of the cinnamon rolls at breakfast one morning. A server, noticing me, quickly offered to... More
