Very pleasant stay. Facility is new and has a well appointed feel. Surprised that the lobby, sports bar, and breakfast area had historic aviation decor in keeping with the location. Will definitely stay there again if I have occasion to visit the area, even if its a little out of the way from where I'm going.

I am a pilot and ended up staying here for almost a week due to a mechanical issue on one of our planes. The hotel's rates are great, amenities are nice, breakfast buffet is good and included (nothing 5 star but they do actually make it in house and not via a microwave). Rooms are all suites and very large.... More

Front desk staff is extremely warm and welcoming. To say they are helpful would be an understatement. Breakfast is OUTSTANDING! Really nice pool, well kept court yard. Bar has a few really nice beers (Bells Two Hearted Ale). Really close (walking distance if its not too hot) to an really nice outdoor mall and some great dining. The staff was... More

When I go to Scottsdale, it's usually for a business/education trip. I've stayed in several places known for luxury(and high cost) and others known more for budget and a bed. Thunderbird Suites is above the median of these options and a place I will return to when I go back to Scottsdale. It's rates are very reasonable. The location is... More

Had a great stay at the BW Scottsdale Thunderbird Suites. Rooms were spacious and clean, bed was comfortable. Front desk staff were friendly. Thankful for the shuttle service it was very helpful. Front desk also were great with area information. Salvador in the breakfast area was a true superstar and it was a delight to see him in the morning.

Check in was smooth, rooms nice and clean. Best part of my stay was due to Salvador in the breakfast nook. Super personable every morning and on our last morning there knowing we were running late make us breakfast burritos to go. Above and beyond.. That you Salvador you made my day.

We always enjoy our stay here. The employees are always willing to go out of their way in order to accommodate our needs. The Room was excellent and we enjoyed the living room ,kitchen area as it offed us the opportunity to have guest over for a night cap.

Clean, updated, southwestern feel, friendly efficient staff. Beds very comfortable. Room services was quick and presentation of food good. Parking well lite and accessible. Suite well laid out, allowing me to work early in the morning while my wife sleeps in.

Pool is good temperature, great overall place to stay, good breakfast, bathroom is very small, quiet location even though close to Scottsdale airport...never heard anything. Would recommend staying here and we will be returning also.

Very conveniently located hotel. Pool area is beautiful. Like the king suite set-up. Just wish the bathroom was more spacious. Breakfast is good and more than just a continental-style serving. The staff is pleasant and helpful. Good value for a week-long visit!
