We're sure that the Scottsdale Plaza resort was nice, in former times. But to be honest, that must be some time ago. We were located for a few days in the remodelled part of the resort, at least, that is what the someone of the desk said when we checked out. We were not aware. The furnishing and decor looked outdated -though someone who appreciates an enormous wall mirror next to the bed would be in heaven- , the fridge hardly worked (we checked with one of the congierges, it is not supposed to cool a lot?), a number of ice machines out of order, noisy airco, and in the bathroom someone forgot his carpenter's level.
However, the room was clean and the bed was good.
Apart from that, we did not feel we were in a real resort, apart from the resort fee, Internet for $13 a day, a 2x2 pancake + 2 juice breakfast for $35 and recorded phone messages from the manager, telling us what specialities the onsite restaurant Remington's had to offer that day. Hmmmm...
A remarkable detail indicating the lack of progress/lack of investment (?) in the resort, is the 'interactive tv menu' offering Gamecube games for 6.95 an hour. The Gamecube was discontinued in 2005!
One positive, though. Most of the personnel was very nice and helpful. We will not return, but we will remember the friendliness of the ones working in the Scottsdale Plaza.
