I was there at a business conference for a week. An item out of my room, was stolen and the hotel had zero accountability, and was extremely rude about the situation. They explained if it was stolen there was nothing they can do. Very disappointed in how this was handled. Nice

We stayed for a couple nights over the holidays. It was a bummer that it was so cold in AZ over this time! We still tried to enjoy the hot tubs and lazy river a bit, though. We were a couple of the crazy people at the pools in 45 degrees! It sure looked like an enjoyable

Dear Prazakr, Thank you for staying with us during your recent visit to Phoenix. We are pleased our hotel exceeded your expectations in most areas and that you were able to enjoy our outdoor amenities despite the weather, but we regret the issues you had with the condition of the fire pit and lower lobby areas. We want your experience with us to be seamless, and we apologize that we fell short. Your comments will certainly be shared with the appropriate departments to ensure we are more diligent with our services going forward.

Considering a Christmas week stay, 4 adults. Is Griffin Club worth the splurge?
We were not that impressed with the evening food selection at the Griffin club for the extra 75 per head charge. In fact, we voiced our concerns to Mangement and they properly resolved. Certainly the premium bar feature is s nice option for those who expect to drink throughout the evening, but not worth it for us.

Is there a charge for parking or is that part of resort fee?
We used the valet service and it was a charge per day. It was well worth it. Great services.

"Rooms have great views of the mountains and golf course."
"The lawn views are great - fire pits, pools, mountains - just be prepared for some revelers outside at night."
"To avoid long walks, ask for a room near an elevator"
"Don't try to get early tee times."
