With brevity in mind, here's the good & the bad
-service: great service received from room, front desk & pool attendants. I asked for extra bottles of water & within a couple of minutes, the room attendant comes back with four.
-property: (probably it’s biggest strength) expansive, beautiful walking trail in the cactus garden & other areas of the property & easy hiking on Camelback Mountain. Less than a 5-minute drive to Scottsdale Mall.
-golf course: great layout – 27 holes; both traditional & desert style courses
-gym: not bad for a resort course; all the equipment that I worked out with were relatively new; adequate selection of cardio equipment
-rooms: beautifully appointed especially the bathrooms
-pool area: the hotel had a high occupancy & it was tough to get a free spot if you come in after 10AM. Some guests were playing the “towel” game i.e. putting towels & other personal items to “reserve” the spot. There is a policy against this but it didn’t appear to be strictly enforced.
-room location: we were on the 4th floor facing the driveway & the balcony was covered with hedges, hence no view & all we heard were sounds.
