Stayed here for a business conference. Very nice lobby bar with excellent patio and views of the golf course and surrounding mountians. Food was excellent, service was good. They even provided charging stations for our cell phones while seated at the bar area. Just ask for a portable charger. Rooms were very nicely appointed with a sitting area and a... More

Stayed here for 3 nights recently on a business trip. The hotel lobby is very nice; they have a restaurant and bar with patio seating if you like. Rooms are spacious with a separate area with a couch, additional TV, desk, refrigerator and wet bar. Very comfortable....I would definitely stay again. If you want to be able to walk to... More

I am staying on business and was told by the group that I am doing work with to use a rate code. I did, and upon check-in, I was so harassed for not having a letter of authorization to use it that I almost left on the spot. They immediately changed my rate to the full price rate, which I... More

Just got back from a few days at the Marriott at McDowell Mountains. Was there on a business trip / Golf tournament - the phoenix open. Rooms were spacious and very very clean; they event provided cleaning cloths for the remote(s) and other areas in the room. All the staff I encountered were top notch. This hotel sits just steps...

Spent a quick day at this property while in the area on business. Excellent staff on check in, very spacious room, great location, especially if one is here to golf. Grounds were immaculate and overall one of the better Marriott properties I've stayed at.....

I apparently picked the worst time to come here - during the open. Rooms were more expensive, roads were closed, limited parking, total annoyance. I suggest that the hotel put up directional signs since the obvious entrance on Bell is closed due to the open. I had to call the front desk to get directions here. The lady was very... More

Kerritex , Thank you for your review. We apologize for the noise challenges you have experienced during your stay. The many outdoor activities and concerts surrounding the city this week including the Waste Management Phoenix Open are in very close proximity to the hotel. This noise is not typical for our property and we hope you can give us another... More

I stay here every time I go to Scottsdale and I highly recommend it for business travel. This property is excellent, the staff are always friendly and accommodating, and the rooms are superb. Restaurant and Starbucks on-site are very good. They also have a gift and sundry shop which has a good variety of items. I love their 1 bedroom... More

The Scottsdale Marriott at McDowell Mountains might not be the fanciest hotel in the valley, but it may be the friendliest. Our room, a king suite, was beautiful, clean and comfortable. The property was beautiful and the restaurant was delicious. The real difference, however, was the people who work there. The front desk people were courteous, professional and friendly. So... More

I travel for business, and always go Marriotts... I picked them to earn "status" and typically get great perks with my Platinum Premier level. Not here! No thanks at check-in, no arrival gift, and a room with a parking lot view. I'm entertaining, and chose this hotel for its great location... Beautiful campus! But I'm almost embarrassed of my "suite"... More

If I were traveling to Phoenix/Scottsdale for leisure, I would not choose this hotel. For the $379/night that does not include a free breakfast, go stay at the the Kierland Westin, Fairmont Princess, J.W. Marriot Desert Ridge, etc. Yes the Marriott suites at this hotel are nice and spacious, but I found some major things lacking at this hotel. The... More
