Stayed here for 1 night at the end of our family vacation. I would imagine that your experience would depend on what type of trip you are on and what your expectations are. Although kept in good repair and boasting quality Marriott service, this hotel was clearly built in a different era than todays golf and spa resorts found in North Scottsdale. The decor has been updated to keep it fresh but its design is still a throwback to the Arizona of the 1970s and 1980's.
If i were here for business in downtown or Tempe, this would be a cool place to stay rather than a plain hotel. It is certainly unique and makes you feel like you are winding up a large 5 story rock that rose up from the Desert. Workout facilities are nice and the restaurant looked nice (we didnt try). The bar was full on a Monday night and the view was great.
But i wouldnt stay here for longer than a weekend on a family trip. The pool areas are unique - especially the hot tubs perched on the side of the Butte - but aftet a few hours there is nothing to do. Also the area around the hotel isnt very attractive. You feel removed from that when youre in the hotel grounds but as soon as you leave you are in an area of industry, older retail and older homes.
Overall it was a good solid Marriott property that was interesting to stay at one time.
