We stayed here for a convention at the Phoenix Convention Center. The Sheraton is your typical business hotel. You pull up, the bell boy about gets run over trying to get you out of the car and get your bags out of the trunk. He says to go ahead and check in and he'll be there with our bags in our room. Check in was smooth, no glitches. Go to our room, within 5 minutes the bell boy is at our door with our bags. That was nice. We were on the 22nd floor and had a nice view of Phoenix. The room was very clean, though need to clean carpets, was a heavy traffic area at the door and going into bathroom. Which is odd for only being a year old, but tan carpet and shows everything. The bed is awesome. Had a perfect nights sleep every night. Even took apart the bed to see what brand it was to buy one at home. Other than that, I wasn't too impressed on the hotel. The service was great, but the price is expensive, for everything.
If you want to be "green" you can opt out of maid service and get a $5 card for a beverage which will cost you another $4 for one drink. The restaurant is over priced and never ate there because of it. We went across the street to the Arizona Center. There are a ton of restaurants over there for lunch and dinner. We had to walk around a bit to find breakfast and found a great place across the street from the Hyatt name Steve's Greenhouse Grill. They opened at 6:30am and only 3 blocks from the Sheraton. Internet is $12.95 a day. And I understand that people that travel a lot usually have their own internet, but those who don't, that's outragegous.
Location is great for the Convention. 2 short blocks. Phoenix has an issue with pan handlers. Within those 2 blocks you will probably get asked at least 3 times for change. Nightlife seemed good for dinner, but not night clubs, which is just fine by me. There were no ball games that week otherwise I think it would be swamped. Wanted to go to Hard Rock, but never got there. There is not a lot of shopping opportunities at this time, but heard that there will be in 2010.
Like I said before, it was ok for a business hotel and convention. But if I were to stay in Phoenix for pleasure I would stay at a resort and enjoy the golf and relaxation. Overall yes, it's a good hotel just very expensive for basic things.
