Stayed here on business, but may come back for a vacation later. It had a very nice pool/courtyard area and huge rooms. It would be perfect for a family vacation. The staff was very helpful and the shuttle driver offered to take us anywhere within 5 miles for free.
My only complaint is that it's a little over a mile away from the light rail, but the shuttle will take you there as long as they are available. The area around is OK, but not great. It was hard to find a nice place to run, but there is a canal path about a mile away that I ended up running to.
If you have a car and a family, this would be a perfect place to stay on a Phoenix vacation for a reasonable price.
