My friends and I ended up in a two bedroom casita as a result of my booking error of another hotel through Travelocity.ca. (btw.: always double check your booking on Travelocity-it's a nightmare to have them change anything!) It was not a desired standard to start with, but I must say the casita arrangement worked OK. The bedrooms looked alright, nothing fancy but OK, each had a separate full bathroom which was important. There was also a powder room downstairs. The lower level made a terrible first impression on us, with its old, grimey looking carpet in the ugliest shade of dirty brown and dark (also brown) curtains that made the entire space gloomy and depressing. The entire complex is visibly dated and more on a kitschy side. I guess, it's a paradise for families with small children who enjoy the lazy river and other kid oriented "attractions". The spaciousness of the casitas plus the deck are a definite plus for families or groups. It certainly isn't a luxurious hotel, and if you think Hilton equals high standard, you'd be disapponted.
The location is not bad: close to the Scottsdale area, easy to access major roads. The housekeeping varied depending on who was on duty; sometimes it was great, other times very superficial. Very limited toiletries were supplied.The resort fee includes the WiFi access, but it is not clearly stated, so it appears that there is no WiFi outside of the public areas and that you need to pay for a connection. Ask for your complimentary password. The reception staff and concierge were usually kind and helpfull, although on the last day we ended up paying more for the taxi we asked them to call because they ordered some super SUV (and didn't tell us) instead of the regular one. As far as food is considered, I would not recommend any place within the hotel grounds. Really bad food.
So...if you want to make kids happy and don't mind older, mostly brown and musty smelling accomodations, Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak is your bet.
