This is a fairy new property, and it shows. It still has the new feel, and it is located in an area that not long ago was probably farmland. Once the NFL stadium and hockey arena were built, this area gradually began to grow, and this hotel is in the middle of it all. It is across the street from an entertainment complex with restaurants, bars, and movie theater complex. An outlet center is going up next door. So while still a bit "out there" there isn't a lack of things to do.
The staff was great, friendly and helpful. The pool was very nice, large, with a fair amount of lounge chairs. There are some cabanas behind the pool bar. The fitness center was also good, with a nice variety of machines and equipment available. There is a spa on site, but I didn't use it.
Things weren't perfect, however. The wifi seemed spotty, as in my room signal strength was very poor/nonexistent. Self parking is $10/day, which seems high when there are no events going on. And given the number of bars next door, closing time may result in some noise.
The room itself was typical Renaissance: great bed, nice amenities, and they even had turn-down service. It's a good, solid property, and while I don't get to the west valley often I would absolutely stay here again, especially if I was going to a football or hockey game.
