Easy walking distance to the mall and downtown Scottsdale area where all the restaurants and bars are. Of course, I wouldn't want to do that walk in the summer because you'd melt in about 10 feet... but in the Spring it's quite nice.
They offer a shuttle within like 3 miles of the property but ask how long the wait is... and on busy weekends I recommend making a reservation or planning on a little bit of a wait.
Great Service and Ambiance!
Free wine from 5p-6p... and it was pretty good wine too. Not 2 buck chuck.
The lobby bar was really nice and inviting. Cushy sofa chairs with stone and dark wood fixtures. The bartenders were helpful and attentive. The one bartender even went so far as to go get us more free wine.
The area between the lobby bar and the pool was a covered outdoor patio complete with fire pit. At least it looked like a fire pit, but I didn't see a fire in it at night. This was a nice place to relax if you didn't want to sit indoors and you didn't want to sit out in the sun.
It is a little on the pricey side... so it's not a cheap place to stay. I think our room was $400/nt... of course we were there on a weekend during Spring Training so I'm sure that had something to do with it.
The accommodations, grounds, and rooms are all very nice and well kept.
Don't let the odd colored hallways in the hotel building discourage you. The rooms inside are really nice and well-appointed with comfy beds and bathrooms where the shower/toilet is a separate are from the sink area. Oh! And they even provide 2 super soft, plush animal print robes. I was tempted to buy one but I have like 3 robes at home and I couldn't justify buying another one.
Our room was on the first floor and had its own little patio area so you could sit outside in what was like a little xeriscape oasis (except for the loud laughing and what not coming from the pool area a short distance away).
The pool area is really nice with loungers and day beds and cabanas and a little bar area. There are 2 pools (smallish by Vegas standards) and 1 Jacuzzi. The husband and I were able to cool off in a little section of the pool which was tucked on the other side of a little walking bridge so it was a bit quieter and away from the splashing kids.
The walls are super thin so you hear everything around you.
The ceiling is super thin so you hear everything above you.
To walk to your room from the lobby you must go through the pool area which I found odd... or you could walk all the way around the perimeter (of the property not the pool) to get to an outer entrance to your building if you didn't want to go through the pool area. Either way... found it odd that there wasn't an easy way around the pool.
