We needed a last minute place to crash for a 7 am flight. The Clarendon is in center city phoenix with free parking. Got a bargain on a king suite. We arrived very late exhausted and hungry. The bar and restaurant were still lively. Food was good, but the drinks were weak. Our room was large and comfortable but smelled... More

The Clarendon Hotel and Spa is newly remodeled and the place is beautiful! The staff is friendly and the owner is always getting involved in the community. Great place! I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else! This truly is a 4 star hotel with a 5 star restaurant.

We stayed for 5 nights and we had a great time. Staff were very friendly and the room we stayed in was clean. With near by pharmacy and supermarket we couldn't complain. 4 star hotel with a 5 star restaurant

This hotel was fine. I'm reviewing it as four stars because, while the accommodations themselves are average, at best, the staff and the taco restaurant next door far exceeded expectations. The Clarendon is a hip, boutique motel. Yes. Motel. The rooms are fine. Nothing to write home about. There is a pool in the middle of the establishment, but honestly,... More

Stayed here for the McCartney show. Yes there are lots of grumblings about this place not being 4 star. It's probably true but to be honest there just isn't much to compare it to. This place is totally unique. I booked on Priceline for $57 plus tax. This included the hotels $20 parking and amenity fee, which includes free bottle... More

Hip, urban, artsy, trendy, friendly, cool, European.... lots of words could be used to describe the Clairendon. If I had to tell you about it in one word, I would choose; Ikea. I loved the hotel, would stay again in a heartbeat, BUT; it isn't a four star...I doubt it COULD be made into one short of tearing down. It... More

Ok. Let's begin. I booked thru Priceline who has this hotel as a 4 star. Bad on Priceline. Hotel is a "quad" ..a squarish shaped hotel with a pool in the middle. Rooms have doors that face the pool. It's WAY smaller than you'd think looking at the pictures. My experience. I came to Phoenix for a Dbacks game. Thought... More

Although I have stayed as an overnight traveler before many times at the Clarendon Hotel, this was a day trip with my family to simply enjoy the unique and beautiful pool area on a hot sunny Saturday. We had a poolside cabana for the day and received all kinds of extras to make us feel even more special like iced... More

We have stayed here in the past and love coming here for a staycation to get away! The pool is fabulous and the hotel is a totally package. Not to mention a delicious restaurant inside! I always recommend this place for out of town guests. The staff and management are helpful and full of knowledge. Excellent hotel that is close... More
