The room is located literally next door to the bar and the entertainment. Who is the Einstein who designed this? Spacious rooms with a poorly planned bathroom, you have to lean over the toilet to turn on the shower. Food is good. Really mixed review.

This was the first time I've stayed at this resort, and it did not disappoint. From the moment we checked in, the service was first rate and everyone did their jobs well and did their best to make our short stay nice. We were rushing to get to a tee time at one of their courses, and they held our bags, got us quickly on a shuttle to the course and we had just enough time to make it happen. Once we made our way back to the property, we were upgraded to a "sun deck casita" at the back of the resort. The room was fairly standard, more like a Marriott instead of a JW Marriott, but it was nice enough. The sun deck was enormous, and offered an amazing view of Camelback Mountain. We had dinner at Rita's on campus, and it was good food and good service. We then made our way to one of the very large fire pits and enjoyed some wine by the fire and chatted with other guests. The common area behind the restaurants and lobby were beautiful and it was obvious that the resort had recently completed an extensive renovation. The breakfast buffet was extensive and was done very well. Overall, I would highly recommend this property for a business conference getaway, a romantic getaway or a family vacation. There is a tennis center, spa, fitness center and pools and hot tubs as well. If you are considering Scottsdale for any reason, you would do well to put this resort on your short list.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 578, which was a second floor "sun deck casita" in very rear of the prop...

I stayed at the Camelback in June while in Phoenix for business. Ive stayed at many other hotels and resorts in the area and this one is one of the best. I like that it has more of a desert resort feel than a hotel feel. The buildings are low adobe style structures that ramble throughout the large property. Many rooms have little sitting patios with chairs so you can hang out in the morning or evening and enjoy the views. The pool area is terrific and the views of the mountians are incredible. I like the great restaurant lounge and large outdoor sitting area...at night it is a fantastic scene. I would definitely recommend this hotel to any business travelers...rooms, service, amenities are all top notch. Im sure it would make a good centrally located place for families as well although like many marriots, it doesnt have a "kids resort" feel.

Wonderful stay for a company business conference for 3 days. It was hot but got cool at night. Beautiful grounds. Rooms are southwestern designed, 5 star all the way, Nice and large with a little kitchenette - microwave and frig. Nice outside sitting table/chairs. Bed was soon comfy. I slept like a baby each night. Very quiet. Great pillows. The bathroom is nice with a his and her area and vanity drawers, large makeup mirror. Bath products were really nice. Staff were wonderful and went out of their way for my requests. We had a private event at the back of the resort at Mummy Mountain. Loved it. I will be back here for a personal trip.

The property has not changed much in the years since we were first there. Yes there has been upkeep changes to keep the site nice. The furniture and bath areas could use someupdating. It is not an over the top destination. It is simple and elegant, and service is attentive and unobtrusive the way at least we like it. All of the employees had a smile on and helped us as needed.

Wonderful girls getaway weekend. Beautiful property. Rooms and bathrooms need updating, but we were never there so it wasn't an issue used spa to get ready and shower. Superb service. Appreciated full service Starbucks on property. Very nice spa, breathtaking views of Camelback Mountain from spa pool. Bikes available, used them to get to the hiking trail. Very close to Old Towne Scottsdale. Wonderful patio with fireplaces and live music. Absolute paradise!

I can't believe they have been allowed to rest on their past, but it's past time that AAA has given the 5 star ratings all these years. The rooms are worse than maybe a motel 6. I doubt whether the bathrooms have been touched in 30 years and the furniture isn't much better. Yes, they spent a fortune to make a fortune on Convention businesss with all kinds of new ballrooms or meeting rooms and turned their back on those that had to stay at this depressing resort. Yes, the SPA is about as good as it gets, the grounds are magnificent and the setting is dramatic. Some of the restaurants are great, but some are just average. I wouldn't stay there again until they updated their hotel rooms.

Room Tip: I wish I could.
