Good hotel for business meetings-good meeting room and food, recommend Mexican buffet for a big group. The staff at the hotel is very accommodating particularly the front desk staff. Loving Marriott's internet TV so I can watch Netflix and listen to Pandora!!! The sheets in my room were not as fresh as would like but the room was clean and... More

We stayed for three nights and enjoyed this hotel very much. The rooms are large annd very comfortable. They are pet friendly and our room had a nice patio and was easy to take our dog out. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The location had good access to the places we visited.

The hot tub was very nice and the pool was large and enjoyable. The fitness room was large. Our room was an upgrade and was not only large but one of the few with a small balcony looking westward over the golfcourse. The only downside was that the rooms in that wing were almost under the flight path of the... More

We were at the hotel for a wedding and since we were coming from the Ohio we didn't mind being woken up at 7/7:30 every morning(fighting time change) but small airplanes did start flying fairly early in the morning and went right over the hotel. Other than that we really liked the hotel. Service was good, the bar and restaurant... More

The first thing I noticed was the air conditioning being placed in AUTO. I selected the fan to HIGH to cool down the room, left for a short time, and upon my return found the air conditioning OFF. This continued throughout my stay, even if I occupied the room. The air conditioning would remain on HIGH and then at some... More

Here for 3 days on business. Free vehicle parking and nicely appointed rooms. Be aware: there is no concierge floor or lounge, this is a resort hotel. The staff is very service oriented - with the exception of those in charge of the early breakfast. On Sunday we seated ourselves waiting for the 6:30 continental breakfast and coffee. Restaurant staff... More

We last stayed here in 2011 and were pleased then----not so much on our 3 night stay this trip. Yes the 2 room suite is very nice BUT a suite needs an in-room safe!

The rooms and staff at this hotel are excellent. The only drawback is the airplane noise from the nearby Scottsdale airport. The location is very good and there are many nearby restaurants and attractions.
