I spent a long weekend in Scottsdale in order to take in the local nightlife. Hearing about the proximity to good bars and the W pool parties were large factors in making our decision.
Nearly everyone we encountered all weekend was great and friendly. The two ladies at the front desk were enthusiastic about what the hotel had going on that evening. The poolside waitress also took some time to discuss dinner options with us.
The rooms are small. Would be fine on a king room, but the two beds were too cramped. The lack of a coffee machine (in room) was also a disappointment. The biggest concern (and the reason for the 4 star review instead of 5) was the thermostat they have that warms your room up when you're not around. It made it tough to keep the room cool. Beyond that, everything was in great shape and the bed was very comfortable.
The pool is as promised - a great place to have a drink. During peak times, the poolside drink service came in handy. Except for Saturday afternoon, we were a bit disappointed in the level of the party. There were only a few people outside and the music was not as good as during peak time.
As a party hotel, it was refreshing to allow them to take the non-guest presence very seriously. Once the bar closes, they were attentive to politely ask non-guest to leave. They even had a separate attendant to make sure anyone going upstairs was a guest (or with one). As a result, there weren't people roaming the halls at all hours. Even if they were, the hotel room door seemed pretty soundproof.
There were plenty of great bars within a few hundred yards. Being able to have a VERY short walk at the end of the night was the biggest perk.
