I have stayed at a number of Kimpton boutique hotels in various states and always have thoroughly enjoyed my stay. They are extremely pet friendly - even announcing a welcome board with your pet's name at the reception counter. Dogs are welcome in the lobby and you can take your pet with you when you present for the complimentary wine reception each evening at any Kimpton resort hotel. [You can see that I am a dog lover]
Now onto the Caleo in Scottsdale.
Bring mosquito repellant! There are some ponds and enough standing water around to give you a nasty case of bug bites, which I encountered during my stay. I'm still treating them with Calamine lotion two days later.
This is a a recent acquisition [one year ago] by Kimpton and they are still working out the kinks. There is a little of a lingering musty smell to some of the rooms, which may be related to overgrown landscaping, rendering many of the rooms quite dark. You would want to specifically request an east facing or "sunny" exposure room. It is an older hotel and is accompanied by little glitches [such as my door hinge coming loose, making it impossible for me to shut the door.] Maintenance arrived within minutes to correct the problem.
They are renovating and redecorating the rooms and lobby/reception areas at this time and I viewed the designer board last week and the hotel should be just stunning with all of the new changes planned. The menu at the hotel restaurant/cafe is minimalist, but the salmon was excellent and the service is impeccable.
I hope to return this winter to see and experience the changes.
