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

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

Arrived for a 12 day stay recommended by our travel advisor. Ordinary hotel but with very good suites and very special service from all the staff. That turned an ordinary hotel into one which we really enjoyed staying at. Many good restaurants in the area so we only had breakfast in the hotel. That was good although slightly pricey. Nearby...

Stayed at this property for business between December 20 and 23. 2014. I chose itbecause (1) the office where I had business was a 10 minute walk from the hotel and (2) I am a Marriott member. Transport and surroundings: Getting there from the airport is maybe a 30 minute or so drive. If you don't have a car, taxi... More

We have been here for 3 days. They upgraded us to a suite when we checked in as this is a very slow time of year here. And I can see why people choose other locations. We are right next to an airport and it is very noisy with private jets and prop planes coming all times of the day... More

Dear shirley0415, Thank you for your review. Our All-Suite hotel offers is great for those who like a little more space when they travel. The separate living room, refrigerator and wet bar are always a nice perk. We apologize for the noise you experienced during your stay. For any future stays, we offer complimentary ear plugs and microwaves that are... More

We travel to Scottsdale every Thanksgiving to spend time with family. I have stayed in dozens of Phoenix/Scottsdale properties over the last 25 years and Marriott McDowell is my favorite, especially when with family. The all suite format works well for us. The way it is situated next to the TPC, Scottsdale airport, and canal gives it a more rural,... More

We were in Az to attend a NFL game in Glendale but wanted to stay in Scottsdale and after extensive research we decided on this one.
