“Clean, comfortable and pet friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

I stayed at this property with my husband and daughter for a soccer tournament in early November. This was a Stay to Play hotel for the tournament, so the team chose this property. We were pleased because the hotel allows dogs for an additional fee (which is costly, but worth it to have our dogs with us). The hotel is beautiful, clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful and very pet friendly. If a pet had ever stayed in our room previously, it was not obvious (no "pet room" smell!! Maybe that pet fee goes to deep cleaning!!). We had a 2 bed suite on the first floor (convenient to get the dogs in and out). The pool was nice and the breakfast was good (my daughter loves the wafflemakers at those places). Kitchenette was convenient and saved us money on eating out. Beds were ok comfortwise. Hotel is hard to get to - can see it but have to know to turn into Mayo Clinic entrance to get to hotel. Have to drive to restaurants and grocery store (nothing within walking distance). I recommend this property for its friendly staff, cleanliness and pet friendly policies.

I recently booked a stay here using points, as I am a nearly 30-year Marriott customer. I intended to stay with my family over Thanksgiving, while visiting relatives. I called in advance to check on availability of rooms, and was assured there were plenty unbooked. When my family and I arrived, we were told that we would not be upgraded, but that we could purchase the upgrade with cash. It wasn't an issue of the room type we desired being unavailable, but simply management's discretion. After much conversation with the Assistant Manager, we requested that they call the Tempe location and check availability there. Instead, we were given the number and called ourselves. Tempe location was more that happy to accommodate, so we packed our bags back into the car and drove to the Tempe location. Our stay there was perfect, they could not have been more welcoming. Tempe will be our destination of choice from here on out. Special thanks to their Front Desk Supervisor, Christine H. for making our Thanksgiving a wonderful experience. Marriott has a gem in this employee.

I stayed here off and on for more than a month and the staff was extremely helpful and friendly.
The hotel is in perfect condition. The rooms are nice and the beds are very comfortable. Wish all Residence Inns were this quality.

Pleasantly surprised when arrived and stayed for two nights when the nearby JW was booked. Several others in our party were also impressed with the cleanliness, size and value of the location. The only drawback was the location itself. Not much around within walking distance...except for the Mayo Clinic.

The folks at front desk were pleasant and helpful. The room was tidy, clean. Its very close to Mayo and they have a shuttle that goes there. I'd stay again if need be. The buffet breakfast was awesome! There were real eggs and potatoes.

I can’t say enough good things about the Residence Inn Desert View. After our hot water tank bit the dust we needed a place to stay with our 6 year old 6 pound dog so that we could have a hot shower. I had suggested the above since our company has numerous folks also staying there when they come to town. From the moment we checked in on August 24th to our check out on August 29th it was perfect. Our room was on the first floor (by request) right next to the door out to the dog area.

The room was beautiful with a full kitchen, large refrigerator and microwave. The layout was also great – we could close the door from the living space into the bathroom/bedroom area so the dog didn’t wander during the night.

We didn’t do any cooking, but we did take advantage of the complimentary breakfasts in the morning. The whole grain make your own waffles were the best. We also had the eggs/sausage/potatoes with a number of toppings you could put on your eggs.

Our room was always immaculate when we returned to shower/sleep and we had plenty of towels. The bed was exceptionally comfortable (we have a memory foam at home so we are really picky) with soft linens and feather pillows – just like home! Although we didn’t take advantage of it they have a beautiful salt water pool.

Now I know why our folks that are here for more than a couple of days at time insist on staying at the Residence Inn Desert View. I highly recommend it for travelers that are doing business/visiting in the North Scottsdale area.

Room Tip: They are all good.

This is truly a Flagship Residence Inn in all respects. Beautifully designed and landscaped into the Sonoran Desert and located conveniently next to the Mayo Clinic Hospital and Medical Research Campus. Guests are greeted in beautiful, vibrant desert colors and photographs in both the spacious lobby and rooms. A very modern kitchen and large one bedroom suite made for a relaxing "workcation" during my one week stay. Staff (Charles, Danny, Cephas Brittany)provided exemplary courtesy and professionalism in answering questions about the area and room requests. I will definitely be staying again at this beautiful property.
