Well located in a trendy area of Scottsdale, some great higher end shopping and great dinning is very close by and easily walked to.
The hotel is very high end with a golf course right at your door and a beautiful lobby with vistas out to the greens but not a luxury property IMHO. They sell pastries and decadent deserts in the lobby in the evening and a nice relaxing bar is loacted in the lobby area as well.
The pool and lazy river looked fun for the children, at night fires blaze and there are many comfortable spots to stop by and have a drink or just relax. If I had to define I would say this resort is really comfortable with very friendly staff who understand the Starwood culture.
The rooms are where they lose the excellence 5 star rating, endless hallways lead to smaller rooms at least so in my case, if you can believe it my room had 2 twin beds? The beds of course were very comfortable with very nice linens but twin beds at this standard of resort is a poor excuse no matter how comfortable they are and the reason for the small beds are the small rooms that won't hold anything larger added to that I stayed 3 nights and no housekeeping one day which of course there is no excuse for at these rates.
Would I stay here again? The answer is yes the public areas, friendly staff, activities and location win out hands down over the room issues, just set your expectations lower for the rooms and don't let them tell you no one complains about there beds, small is small at least by North American standards.....thanks
