“Beautiful beautiful beautiful resort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

This is a lovely hotel in Scottsdale. The grounds, the pools and lobby area are spectacular. Can't be beat. The spa is one of the nicest I've ever been to. Food options are limited to one decent restaurant but there are so many options in the excellent neighborhood, choices are limitless. Starbucks in lobby open 24 hours. The pools are incredible.

The rooms have been nicely updated with great bathrooms, flat screen tv, and nice furniture. No real complaints with this property whatsoever with two exceptions - The mattress is hard as a rock and the linens and towels need to be replaced. They were very worn. But even with those two issues, I'd go back in a heartbeat.

The staff was very pleasant. Excellent front desk experience. Fabulous bell desk. Nice place! Valet parking is $28 a day or you can walk 15 seconds to guest lot and park for free.

Ask for a room with an extended balcony. Great treat.

We return to this hotel every year in November with a large group for a family reunion. The manager and the staff go out of their way to be helpful and welcoming. We really appreciate the extra service they provide and the warm welcome they always give us. They are the reason we come back to the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort and Spa again and again. Thank you and see you November 2013!!

I brought my eight-person leadership team to the Hyatt Regency at Gainey Ranch for four days in December on the recommendation of a colleague. She said it would be excellent. It was better.

The property is gorgeous. The rooms were all you'd expect and charming in the vernacular aesthetic of the region.

Our meeting room (The Board Room) was stylish and functional and well equipped and supplied. Any need was instantly addressed and always with great grace and speed. That brings me to my most important point: the staff here is extraordinary. It starts at the top with the GM, Peter Rice, who personally checked on us and extends to Sury Beck, the service manager who took care of our planning and event, to every staff member at every level. Utter professionalism, a "can-do" attitude, and graciousness throughout.

All of the other aspects of our stay were top notch -- terrific food, beautiful spa and well equipped fitness center, amazing golf. We had a lot of different personalities and interests in the group and everyone found something for their free time.

We may very well make this our annual retreat location because it is hard to imagine anyone doing it better. It may also be the place for our next family vacation given all the region offers on top of this extraordinary hotel.

I don't write a lot of these reviews (and no, I don't have any personal connections to the hotel), but service and performance like this demands recognition.

This resort is stunningly beautiful. The grounds were gorgeous, there were many pools and options for playing games with the kids: bean bag toss, ping pong, foosball, etc. The rooms were very quiet and clean. I highly recommend this resort.

This place is georgous! We came for a girls only weekend at the beginning of December. The gronds are beautifully manicured, many pools to swim in. The family pool area wasn't open yet, but we weren't there with our kids. The rooms are nice, but I was more impressed with the bathroom! There was entertainment on Friday & Saturday night, we sat on the sofas and listened most of the night with cocktails in hand. They had a couple restaurants on site, we ate at the sushi place. I don't personally like sushi, but my friends all thought it was good. They have coffee shop that serves Starbucks coffee on site too! I'd have to say my favorite part of the weekend was spending 4-6 hours at the spa, which is also on site. It was fabulous...I paid the $20 fee to use their spa and thouroughtly enjoyed myself! They have a mineral pool, hot tub, cold plunge, steam room, sauna, outside showers, inside 8 pt. showers and a full menu of services that are pricey. I almost forgot, on Saturday mornings at the spa, they offer a free boot camp exercise class. It was awesome! Lobo Fitness instructor was there, he is fun, informative & super friendly!

$28 for valet overnight parking, $25 resort fees when the pool isn't even open, $12 for a glass of wine, this place is a ripoff! It has a rather expensive nightly fee as it is and then they charge you for every little thing. It was raining when we arrived so we valeted and then noticed it cost $28 on our bill. Thanks for the heads up guys! We always expect to pay more when we visit hotels, but this place just seemed even more so than usual. The hotel itself it very nice, great decor with lots of dining options. It is a large property so not that easy to get around. The room was nice, nothing special, but we did have a nice view and the bed was comfortable. With so many options in Scottsdale I don't think we would stay here again.

There is a beautiful adult-only pool with poolside service, as well as a separate for families with kids. The rooms are clean and quiet, and there are as many amenities as you can imagine. We absolutely love staying here and will definitely do it again!
