This hotel is a great example of old hotel made new.
GOOD: The room was a page straight from Dwell or something Jeff Lewis would have designed. Everything was beautiful and immaculate. The soaps/bath products (and yes, you know this matters... ) were fabulous, something I would buy.. and they didn't skimp on giving it to you.
NOT-SO-GOOD: The yokels yakking it up around the hot tub (until 11pm/week night) created an impossible environment for sleeping. I did complain, and was given a room away from the hot tub.. the noise was better.. but the moving of rooms was a pain in the buns.. as I had to pack up and move without the physical assitance of hotel staff. I would hope that these yokels were not the typical type of guests (uncouth, no manners or respect). Perhaps Scottsdale attracts these types..
As another reader mentions, the signage is not so easy to find your way around... especially if you're tired, been travelling all day, and just want to rest and enjoy the fabulous room... so you could be wandering for a while (ASK FOR HELP!). Another downside, price to valet park seemed exorbitant.. especially since you could park for free in the side parking lot. The room was not cheap, so honestly I think paying for valet is a bit of a rip off.
OVERALL: I would stay again. The good outweighs the bad, by far. The hotel is great. Everything is a design lovers dream. The bar and restaurant were also excellent. Business travellers take note - specifiy in advance if you're there to Par-Tay or Sleep.
