I stayed in this hotel for business over 2 midweek nights. It didn't rate very high in my book for curb appeal with its stark brick exterior, but it's what's inside that really counts, and this hotel is a very good choice.
It's in a great location, just across the street from Scottsdale's Old Town district, so it's an easy walk to over 20 restaurants and bars, varying in quality from good to outstanding. (I think I've sampled almost all of them over the years.)
As for the hotel, service was excellent. I always received a smile and a greeting from the staff. The front desk was prompt at check-in and check-out, room service arrived sooner than the promised 30 minutes both times I used it, and my one meal in the hotel restaurant, Allie's, was quick and error-free.
The rooms are all suites, with sitting room separate from bedroom and bath. There was plenty of room to spread out in the sitting room, which has a sofa, chair and workdesk (with its own chair), plus 27-inch CRT TV. There's also a small wet bar with an under counter fridge. (My room also had a murphy bed in the sitting room.) The bedroom contains just the bed, a couple of night stands and another, smaller CRT TV. The bath is split in 2, with tub, shower and toilet in one area separated from the sink by a pocket door.
The furnishings were fine, befitting a business hotel but nothing luxurious. Everything was clean and in an excellent state of repair.
The in-room Internet connection was provided via ethernet hook-up at $10 per day, but they provide free phone calls (and nationwide long-distance) as part of a package in that cost. Underground parking is provided free, and for business travelers who need to make copies or print documents from computers, there's no charge for the first 20 or so pages - something that saved me a bit of money on this trip.
Oh, and there's a Starbucks in the lobby for easy access to that first cup of Joe in the morning.
This hotel is a good value for Scottsdale. It doesn't compete with the full-blown resorts in the area with their spas and golf clubs, but its Old Town location and all-suite accommodations make it a very good alternative.
