As many reviewers have noted, this is a VERY expensive place to stay. We were able to access a special rate online and managed to get a rock-view room for $309 per night. That felt like a bargain because we had originally planned to spend more to stay in a much lower quality room. Reception was busy when we checked in, but the desk clerk was very friendly and professional. The Desert Gardens room was quite large. There were double sinks in the bathroom -- nice! The balcony did indeed overlook the rock. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. The amenities in the room were not replenished when the room was cleaned.
Beware -- we made two phone calls, using a prepaid phone card. On checkout, we were charged $9 for each of the calls!
