We booked this this property through "Name Your Price" with Priceline. It was advertised as a priceline "four star" and we paid $150 per night (no resort fee). I definitely would NOT recommend this property if you are traveling on leisure or with a family.
We were with our children. During our stay, there was a large convention in house and the management closed the pool for an entire day (until 2pm). As you can imagine, for children, on Spring Break in the desert, this was disappointing. In addition, the main restaurant which was supposed to be open for lunch and dinner was closed our entire stay. One night we had to eat in the bar area and it was really unpleasant.
I also felt the rooms were okay, but definitely more along the lines of a 2 or maybe 3 star. Definitely musty and the room was dark. I felt the hotel did maintain the grounds nicely and it would have been an acceptable hotel if I were on business alone. But with the main pool closed and restaurant closed it was not a good vacation choice.
The other thing that was really upsetting is that I did complain to the Rooms Division Manager. There was a lack of any response or opportunity to check out early or move rooms or anything... the hotel basically said because we booked through Priceline there was nothing they would or could do. So again, that was a disappointment. I felt the hotel should have offered some concession due to closing the entire main pool and restaurant. I probably won't book again through Priceline because I feel the hotel was really misrepresented by stating it was a four star. It really should be a three star at best.
Overall, I would try and find something better in Scottsdale, especially if you have any leisure time.
