The W known as the hip and cool destination for all things Wow! It certainly is that. However, come for a professional meeting and you just might be amazed. One thing W is not is a Disney getaway for families. However for Wed to Friday meeting destination this place fit the bill. The meetings were top notch in every way. The food was amazing. Every day and night there was a sprinkling of very small groups obviously there on leisure. However the W Scene was no where to be found. It is my understanding the place turns into an all out party on the weekends. Which if I were there sans kids it would might be a fun weekend getaway for me and the Husband. However, during our stay, there was little or none of that. Just a medium sized happy hour crowd and a few folks chilling by the pool/ lounge bar area. Lots of casual spots to unwind after all day meetings. We left here one time during our stay and that was ok with me. Location was walking distance to Fashion Square, a high end mall and fabulous restaurants or have the W Car drive you. The W rooms are tre-fab! Very cool design with BLiss products. Mine were restocked everyday. Bonus: As I loved the face wash and shower gel. Service: Stellar. Robes super comfy- I seriously would have bought one if I could have fit it in by bag. Beds super comfy too.

I have travelled all over the world, but have never stayed at a "W". It was the best Hotel ever. It is definitely adult oriented and party central. The pool was awesome with plenty to see. The service was the best of any Hotel I have ever stayed. I am from Miami, but Scottsdale knows how to party!!!

I've stayed at W Scottsdale on a half dozen or so occasions this year.
Each experience has been marvelous. I particularly appreciate the
attentiveness and friendliness of the staff, cleanliness of the facility
and sweet smell in the lobby. I travel every week for work and the W
shines as the best hotel experience I've had this year. I will even stay
here for pleasure later this year.

First time stay at the W Scottsdale over Labor Day weekend. The hotel has a very "zen" vibe and the lobby smells amazing.

Service was EXCELLENT!! Our room overlooked the zen garden. We were warned that it can be loud until 2am on Fri/Sat nights, but we were out late so we didn't notice it. Front desk accommodated our request for a mini-fridge, which was delivered to our room within 10 minutes of arrival. The room was clean and decent sized, though the bathroom set-up does not offer much privacy. Friday afternoon the pool was not crowded; we had our choice of lounge-chairs. The staff was repeatedly asking if we needed anything.

The "whatever/whenever" service was great -- we needed some "5-hour energy" so they went out and picked it up for us and delivered it to the room within 30 minutes. They charged it to the room and there was a nominal delivery fee and we tipped the guy. It was worth it not to mess around! And they have the complimentary ACURA car service, which will drive you to anywhere around the hotel -- you just call and make reservations -- we took it to dinner.

Saturday the pool was PACKED!! We got there early (by 10) and were able to get chairs; by noon the chairs were all taken. And you needed wristbands to get in. By 3pm the pool was FULL, but it was excellent people watching!! Of course the drinks are pricey, but don't you expect that?? At night, the pool area turns into a club, which was really hopping at 10pm. Lots of security all over the hotel. And FYI you need a room key to access the elevators.

BOTTOM LINE: Its a young, hip, trendy place in Scottsdale -- its NOT a family hotel. I didn't see any kids here, but that's what we wanted. Its super close to the Fashion Square Mall and Old Town -- a cab ride was $5. I would recommend if you don't mind a "party" atmosphere. If you do, stay someplace else!

Room was not cozy/comfy, view was of a big air contioner on the roof. Parking was horrible! Ending up having to valet park which was $26 for the night and the room was over priced! The bachelerette party I attended there was DULL! Boring atmosphere, music was not good, and the bottle service drinks were horrid! Save your money and get your drinks at the bar! This is a high scale wanna be hotel that is made out to be something it was NOT! I would not recommend this hotel unless you like a boring, snobish, mingling atmosphere with bad music.

Bring flip flops as the area around the pool is HOT. Enjoy drinks by the pool in the evening. Dreamy.

Music at night can get loud on the weekends at the pool area....but I stayed here before and I knew what to expect. 1st time guest might get upset if they aren't told up front.
