My girlfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights in May. I had to be in Phoenix for a business trip and we decided to make a long weekend out of it but did not want to stay at the corporate resort. What a great place! It was perfectly located in the middle of Phoenix with easy driving access to all the local attractions (Musical Instrument Museum, Taliesin West, Apache Trail, etc). There's even a cool wine bar within walking distance (Postino Cafe).
We stayed in the Library Room, which had a separate bedroom and sitting area. The bed was comfy, we had our own climate control, and the room was very private. The decorations made it feel downright homey. The sitting area had an old tube TV but they had full cable and even some of the premium channels and on-demand service. The wi-fi unfortunately did not work in the room but it worked in the garden and there was an Ethernet cable in the sitting area that worked fine with my laptop. There was also a basket of snacks that was kept stocked with everything from trail mix to chips to fruit to candy, and a refrigerator with bottled water.
Breakfast every day was a treat, consisting of a quiche, muffins, juice, and a bowl of fresh cut fruit (we are not coffee drinkers but I think you can get that too). It was delicious! On the first day we were asked what time we wanted breakfast and every morning at that time there was a light knock at the door and a picnic basket was left just outside.
The only quibble we had was the shower. Not sure if it is particular to this room, but it took a long time for the hot water to heat and you had to do it by running the tap in the sink for several minutes until it got hot, then shutting it off and starting the shower. Once you did this there was plenty of hot water, but the volume of water coming out was quite low (pressure was good, just low volume).
That being said, I was debating between giving 4 or 5 stars (4.5?), until one day we were discussing with the owner how we intended to head out to drive the Apache Trail. When we went out to our car, lo and behold there was a cooler sitting right outside the driver's side door filled with ice and bottled water! That was an incredible touch.
All in all, we were very satisfied with our stay, the breakfast, the location, the cleanliness and comfort, and the hospitality of the owner.
