The Clarendon has a great restaurant, nice rooftop bar with great views, excellent pool and jacuzzi, and well-equipped, large, pleasant rooms. Highly recommended for spending time in Phoenix when you also want to spend time at the hotel - otherwise, there may be better deals out there if all you want is a place to sleep on the way to the airport, etc. Front desk staff is always helpful and ready with a basket of free treats.

The Clarendon has a unique atmosphere lending to a unique hotel experience. The artistically decorated rooms are clean with very comfortable beds. I love and enjoy the sparkling pool and spa. Excellent service! The staff is very helpful and hospitable. The attached restaurant and bar provide great food, drinks and night entertainment. I would highly recommend The Clarendon for you next stay when visiting Phoenix or even for a staycation.

Staff is always incredibly accommodating and very polite. Pool and giant hot tub are awesome add margaritas and the day is complete. This place made me resent hotels that have 11am/12pm check out time of which has now grown into a hatred for them.. I love nothing more than getting my $$ worth and being able to enjoy myself without feeling like I'm being rushed out so thank you Clarendon and your wonderful staff for making our staycations awesomeness every time!

I love everything about this hotel. I live in Phoenix and have stayed here plenty of times to just get away. I'd love to stay here more but the fees add up quickly. It is also very inconvenient that they don't have a ice machine. So you're forced to have to use their one elevator and go to the front desk and ask for a bag....by the time you get back to your room it's melted...especially in the summer. Overall I love this place...the sky deck is worth the price of admission. The staff is always accommodating and super friendly.

I have only had the chance to stay here one time, but am really looking forward to staying again! The hotel has such a fun atmosphere, the staff was amazing, the location cannot be beat and I love the guacamole at Gallo Blanco! I do know the hotel is constantly upgrading to make things even better. If you get a chance, you should check it out. You most certainly will not be disappointed.
