I stayed at this property for three nights for business meeting in mid November 2013. I was most impressed. The all suite rooms were large,well appointed. The bed was very comfortable.
Well trained professional and friendly staff. The bellman "Dane" was extremely helpful providing dinner suggestions and offering shuttles within five miles of the hotel. This property is perfect for meetings and conferences, also.

Room Tip: It's a little ways away from PHX so allow plenty of time to travel between the two points, depen...

I would have given this a higher rating but I have to give it in comparison with others I have reviewed so it comes out just average...
It is a standard - hotel. very nice - excellent staff but the facilities are only average (although at the high end of average admittedly)

The fencing round the pool etc gives it a bit of an average feel - and the rooms are too corporate. The service was good and the breakfast is nice.

We had to move room as you can definitely hear the road a lot from some areas of the hotel and the airport noise is fairly constant - though that didn't really bother me.

We had a wonderful trip with lots of relatives and I would say it is perfect for large griups meeting for sure

Stayed here as part of a meeting group. Large, suite style, comfortable rooms with typical plush Marriott beds and bedding. Everything worked well in my suite. Overlooked the golf course and it was quiet. Had dinner on the patio one evening, service was prompt and attentive. I was impressed with the food served as part of the meeting. Breakfast, lunch and dinner buffets all well done with appropriate service. Meeting rooms well set up and serviced. Not much nearby but had little reason to leave. There are areas nearby to walk/jog - ask for a map at the front desk. Bellman easy to work with in arranging car service back to the airport.

Room Tip: The Scottsdale airport flight path goes right over the hotel. No problems with noise in the room but...

We stayed here for a wedding that was going on last weekend. At first glance, it was a beautiful property with great views of the Camelback Mountains. The Front Desk was extremely nice and although we could have checked in early, they let us know of a better room with a view if we would like to wait. We definitely appreciated that since we were there for 3 nights. Once we got up to the room, we were surprised to see double beds (we were sharing with another couple). They should definitely invest in some queen size beds (but beggars can't be choosers), the double beds were still extremely comfortable!! We were very excited to go on our first vacation of the year and we were in high spirits.

However, then we made our way down to their restaurant/bar/outdoor sitting area. After 20 minutes of waiting, we went inside to ask if we needed to order from the bar. They said oh no, we will come out. Ok.....we waited another 20 minutes. Nothing. We moved into the bar and got instant service from a nice young gentleman. However, there were 5 servers standing around not doing ANYTHING and making this poor young man do everything, including the manager. It took another 30 minutes to get an appetizer. Slowest service I have ever experienced and outrageous menu prices. I guess when you are not within walking distance to anything, you are able to charge higher.

We did not have a rental car, so we utilized the shuttle everyday. The valet guys are awesome and have great suggestions of where to go. Zach was extremely nice and helpful and so was Dane. With that being said, NOBODY in our entire wedding block wanted to even try to deal with the awful service in the restaurant so we were having to bug the shuttle guys all day everyday to just go and get food.

Anyways, I would not stay here again just because of the location. If I had a rental car, maybe. I prefer to be closer to things in walking distance so I don't feel stuck at a hotel. Especially one with slow service. The Front Desk gal Senitka (sp?) was amazing during our whole stay and she should definitely be promoted to a manager. Zach and Dane were awesome as well.

Hope this review helps!

Just a very nice, quiet relaxing hotel in the Phoenix area. Staff were professional, helpful & friendly. Wifi was fast. The room was clean with a very nice view. Numerous wildlife are around the hotel. A great find in the Scottsdale area.

This hotel is a great value for your money. It has a beautiful setting next to TPC Scottsdale. The rooms and lobby are all updated and it is very clean. The only downside is the slowness of service in the restaurant. We went at several different times and they were severely understaffed.

Room Tip: Balcony rooms are wonderful

Great stay. Clean room, as promised. Even sofa bed was comfy. The in oh low point was z visit to the bar--terrible service. Waited forever and even after we went and found a manager, it took another 20-30 minutes to get just drinks and an appetizer. Without so much as a "sorry of took so long"
