Traveled to Scottsdale to look at retirement properties. Hotel was a bit south of where we were looking, but close enough to Scottsale Road. Got a decent deal for a Fairmont Gold room and decided that past "gold" service at Fairmont Hotels was worth the price. We could not have been more pleased. The service, afternoon snacks and personal attention exceeded our expectations.
Staying in the Gold section at this hotel was kind of different than other Fairmonts. The rooms are near the back edge of the property. We actually never made it back to the lobby except for check-out. It was like having our own boutique hotel experience in the middle of a large, Mexico-style mega-resort. Room was large and very comfortable. Bath was enormous and recently redone with a shower that was like standing outside in a downpour. South pool (the only one we saw) was massive and very active, yet enough chairs for all who were there. Had a nice lunch overlooking the pool.
Wi-fi -- a must for my wife and me -- was the fastest and best I've ever experienced at a hotel. I did a speed test and it topped 20Mbps. Incredible. Best of all was that it was included at no extra charge with the Gold room.
We'd definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here again. Thanks to the staff for their many real estate tips and recommendations!More
