We were bumped on a flight and we're stuck in Phoenix so we needed a room. Booked on kayak not knowing anything about this hotel. This place was amazing! Very trendy, very friendly and helpful employees, awesome southwestern food, free bicycle rental to see some sites!! I would refer this place to anyone!

The hotel decor was nice it gave the hotel a fun and modern vibe. My boyfriend and I definitely took advantage of the free bikes they let you borrow to stroll downtown. The beds are comfortable and clean however the rooms were not all that I expected. The shower head looked dirty and the knob was broken! My boyfriend had... More

This place is falling apart. Don't know where to start really. You want to like it, because some of the staff tries so hard... but once you see the hallway to the rooms you wonder if you made a mistake booking a room here. Once in the room some of the decor is really weird but you think you can... More

Bright and cheery rooms with comfortable beds and linens. The rooftop at this hotel had a stunning view of downtown Phoenix. The hotel is boutique/ retro feeling. If you are looking for a new hotel this probably isn't for you. The front desk staff were very nice checking us in and even had some recommendations for local spots. Overall nice... More

What fun decor! The pool/hot tub area is large, but cozy with private cabanas and long hours (6-10). The pool is in the shade a good part of the day, which is great in Phoenix. There are loaner cruiser bikes-way fun and an assortment of snacks for guests. The attached restaurant changed chefs recently without skipping a beat. Western fare-reasonable... More

We had the opportunity to film at The Clarendon Hotel, its a great location on the heart of Phoenix, amazing friendly staff, perfect roof view, and unique pool area, I would recommend this hotel for anyone for business or personal visit to Phoenix.

My husband and I traveled for the Super Bowl. Neither of us had ever been to Arizona and by wonderful luck, we ended up at this hotel. The staff couldn't have been better at accommodations! The Clarendon is centrally located to the various activities we were part of for the Super Bowl experience. The pool area is lively and fun.... More

My Dad and I stayed here during the Super Bowl. The hotel is terrific. The hospitality was outstanding. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. The restaurant was delicious for breakfast. Fern at the front desk was wonderful! Thank you.

My fiance and I recently stayed at the Clarendon over the holidays. This was the 2nd time I stayed there, hoping our 2nd experience would be as great as the 1st. It was even better! They have renovated the lobby, restaurant and bar, and enlarged the windows in several rooms overlooking the pool courtyard. The staff was incredible - -... More

I was in Phoenix for a conference and checked in as planned to the hotel. Expedia rated the hotel as 4 stars. My initial impression was that on the surface the hotel looked like the 60's with renovations and some upgrades. I could see some esthetic items that could be improved but really for the price how could I complain.... More
