location, ease of getting around, close to freeway and shopping, beautiful lobby, wonderful pools the hotel is only about a year old and the carpet in my room was unravelling, and stained. The pools could have been cleaned better, tiles needed scrubbing. Because I was there in the off season, June 8, pool ran out of towels, limited staff in bar.
The location was perfect for us. Close to the ball park and easy access to 2 major highways.
Brand new. Pool is aewsome! Gym was very good. The sports bar and staff were great! For a Sheraton, the hotel needs to 'tighten' up their game. No pools towels available twice. Coffee stains on the tile left for 3 days. Just seems petty, but real close to be top notch!

Parking was a little strange, located in Riverview Park the parking is shared by park users. Also if you don't want your car watered don't park by the grass areas.
It was close to eateries and shopping centers and the room was roomy. Nice walk in shower with great water pressure. Close to freeways. The staff had welcoming attitudes but it seemed like they needed training. The carpet in our room was stained.
We booked a King Jr Suite and it was beautiful. Large rooms and very clean. Staff was very quick at getting or fixing whatever was needed or wrong. Beautiful location. Housekeeping wasn't the best. They didn't wipe down counters, refill coffee bar, leave water or vacuum. They did make the bed and leave clean towels. We had to call housekeeping 3 different times to come back. Bathroom needs more light, very dim.
Fast check-in, courteous staff, great location.
Friendly bartender at the pool! Several hotel staff members were not friendly at all.
Overall it was in a great area and really nice. Room was a long walk to get to for us.
Strange parking situation but not bad
My room was next to the pool, the rooms were a good size, staff was amazing, was given late checkout until 1:30 for no charge, the golf terraine is gorgeous, there were other families there on Saturday which made it nice for my daughter to play, pool was very clean, there are 2 pools, the smaller pool is nicer, pool is open late, hot tubs are large, store across the street, lots of restaurants around, no bedbugs. Hot tub wasn't working by large pool, furniture in room is from 1967 and smells accordingly, rooms feel like a mix between a skanky motel and retirement home, the whole place feels like a retirement home, I went to the restaurant and it was gross, waitress was very rude to me and I left, rooms don't feel very secure, some really shady looking guests, towels are nasty, purchased Lysol wipes and wiped down my ENTIRE room after I was told my room was non refundable, it was filthy, including the toilet, bed very uncomfortable, there was blood on my sheets.
Location close to venues and restaurants Staff asked for us to write a good review if we enjoyed everything. It's their job to make me want to write a good review. After many years on customer service I found it very tacky that managment asked me to write a good review
everything was ok, I felt really good, friendly people everywhere, golfing was good. I would come again next year!
Excellent room for the price.
The room was big and very clean. The kitchenette was a nice amenity, too. The bathroom area was very functional with the shower/toilet in a separate room from the sink and very long counter (loved the counter space!). Although standard in most hotels, having a functioning iron and board that didn't leave a stain on my shirts was a life saver. I am a big coffee drinker. I would've like to see a little more than maxwell house coffee filters for the old style coffee pot. I tried it once and couldn't do it twice. Ended up going out for coffee.
Course is fun to play. The staff was friendly and went out of their way to please. Prime rib was excellent and the restaurant staff was very efficient and nice. The resort was built in 1960, so things are a little dated, but they are working on upgrades all the time. The kitchenette is a great option for the people who don't like to eat out every night! P.S. Don't eat the oranges on the trees they are an ornamental variety and YUCK!!!
The hotel was well below the style portrayed in the pictures I saw on the internet. The website said there was free wireless internet in the rooms, which in fact was charged 6.95 per day for said internet usage. I will not be staying ath the Arizona Golf Resort ever again. The grounds, and rooms, were not nearly as nice looking as in the website, I truly feel mislead. Also they charged me 6.95 per day for wireless internet usage in my room which was said to be free of charge on the advertised website.
No continental breakfast as promised
No continental breakfast as promised Hot tub was closed due to repairs the other one was packed so wasn't able to use it.
Nothing The service The Customer Service The Reservation Desk
I can't remember being more impressed with a hotel compared to this one! My room was HUGE, clean and nicely furnished with a great little fridge/freezer, microwave and the rest of the standard items. In addition to free continental breakfast, they provide a free dinner every night with free tap or bottled beer and wine!!! The pool faces west so you get sun all the way till sunset. The staff was amazingly friendly...a guy got wasted drunk and threw up in the pool so they asked him to leave the pool, and of course he was quite argumentative, but the manager that was escorting him did an incredible job of calming him down and even carried all his stuff (two coolers and more) for him as he walked him back to his room. The front desk was remarkably friendly, and when my flight landed at the nearby airport (Phoenix-Mesa Gateway), I called them to ask for a shuttle pick up, and before I even hung up the phone the driver was pulling up at the curb. Even the housekeepers were awesome and friendly. It's located kitty-corner from a Circle K that is pretty large with a great selection and a Red Box, and within a mile there's shopping of all sorts including a Target, Fry's, Walmart and plenty of restaurants, all of which are reachable by bus, and there's a bus stop right in front of the hotel. Holy WOW I was BEYOND satisfied with this place!!! It would be nice if there was a wider pool deck so that there could be more space between the pool and the fence for lawn chairs so that you could still walk around them, but I made due just fine :)
We went to the hotel while our house is being repaired for mold issues. The Kayak website advertised this hotel as clean but that was not true. The first room we got (108) smelled like smoke from cigarettes and the bathroom smelled like pee. We asked for a different room and they gave us 109. The pillows smelled like human sweat and when we were ready to go to bed we noticed small black particles in the sheets. I felt what I can describe as a bug bite and a red rash developed. We (my two kids and my 8-month pregnant wife) packed as fast as we could and we got out of there.
We really enjoyed the Oasis Water Park they had different events going on which made it super fun for the kids. The room was clean, great location close to shops restaurants and more. Plenty of things to do at resort.
We loved our comfortable room. We loved the waterpark. We loved being able to check in a little early. We didn't love not being able to bring a few snacks into the waterpark. They make sure you have to buy them there.
Beautiful balcony view and clean room. No ice machine on every floor.
Grounds Family water park Requested newspaper three times - never received - front desk and "grand service" said that paper would be delivered as it was part of " resort fee" which I was required to pay Asked for creamers for coffee in room never delivered TV says you can check out via tv but cannot - line was half hour long Facility is nice but dated and worn Service in bar was understaffed, "free" appetizer (with two drink minimum) never arrived Mandatory $45.00 plus tax resort fee seems excessive considering poor service
Enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere... we celebrated our first year anniversary here and the staff was very courteous that we had an upgrade on our room and a bottle of wine given to us for free at your arrival! Excellent location! Restaurant had good quality food just a little overpriced.
rooms and Oasis waterpark menu choices for romm service a little limited
We went for the water park & got more than we expected for the holiday with extended hours & activities for the children. For an additional amount we could check out later & enjoy the park more. Staff were very courteous. No microwave
Comfortable suites with good beds; lush vegetation; wonderful little swimming pool right across from our suite; restaurant patio dining; a great water park for kids; good gift shop. Furniture somewhat dated; very small bathroom; stained carpet in living room (except for that, the suite was very clean).
How busy the pool area is with kids. I am not sure how they can help adults that are not traveling with kids but I'm sure they would be annoyed with the level of kid noise. I think the parents allow the kids too much freedom with little parent supervision even late at night. I feel they should have curfews for the kids. If you are seated over the bridge you must bring your shoes to the lazy river or your feet will be burned. I feel they should have more entrances to the lazy river to much congestion in one area
The water park is so fun ! There are so many fun things to do there the water slides are awesome! The beds are super comfy too!! There's a resort fee that should just be included in the price but it's for a good reason and the room service is a bit high .
This isn't a very romantic resort. Too many places for families and not enough places for romance DO NOT LIKE THE EXTRA CHARGE AT THE DESK OF $49 FOR WHATEVER. I WAS CHARGED AN ADDITIONAL $110 WHICH $55 IS REIMBRUSED AFTER SO MUCH TIME. CHARGE WHAT YOU WILL AND LEAVE IT AT THAT. WE COME FOR THE SLIDES & LAZY RIVER LIKE EVERYONE ELSE. BUSINESS MAYBE DIFFERENT.
The hotel was great, and spacious. there is a convenience of a few shopping plazas nearby, but no sounds, it was quiet and enjoyable. I loved it!
The room was great! Very clean and comfortable. Nice location. The breakfast was suppose to run until 10am but on one of my mornings the staff was cleaning by 930am.
The hotel is modern and new, and the staff is very friendly. There are also some shops and restaurants nearby.
Great layout of rooms, modern and clean rooms, great location, and excellent business services... Breakfast service not quite as good as other Hyatt Place....coffee was not good.
The room was very clean and beautifully designed. I loved the flat screen TV and fold out couch. Also, the wireless internet was easy to use and the continental breakfast was simple and tasteful.
Nothing The beds are uncomfortable, no locks on restroom, no clean towels by the pool, TV channel were minimal, didn't have extra pillows when asked, bed sheets were stained, elevator was too slow and towels had a bad odor.
We stayed in this hotel for 5 nights. It was our worst hotel experience ever. On the 3rd night, around midnight, the fire alarms in the entire hotel went off. The entire hotel was evacuated, seemingly because someone had burned popcorn. On our 4th night, we noticed the sink was filling with water and black sludge while the faucet was NOT on. We alerted hotel management, they did not have someone to fix it until morning and did not have a king size bed to move us to. By the morning, the entire bathroom floor was flooded. Somehow that morning at 7am, they "located" another king size room to move us to. Once we arrived in the second room, we noticed that the flushing mechanism for the toilet was completely busted. We alerted management again and expressed our extreme displeasure. Their response to us, " Well it's a hotel. Things break." The hotel is 15 years old. Terrible, terrible stay, Upon speaking with the management upon leaving, they offered to comp 1 night and that's it. Lovely, NOT.
Nothing Upon our arrival and check in, we were assigned a room on the fifth floor. Having brought a number of items for family members, we needed to unload our vehicle as the Motel is located in a high crime area; full of abandoned buildings which previously housed Night Clubs, Pubs, Movie Theaters, Restaurants, and Strip Malls. I went in search of a luggage cart to speed and easy the task. Not finding any in the area of the elevator, I returned to the lobby and asked the front desk attendant where they stored them. I was informed they could be anywhere in the Hotel. After searching seven floors, I finally found one outside in the parking area. It was the one, and only one for the entire Hotel. Next problem we encountered was when I flushed the stool in the bathroom and water sprayed out from between where the tank sets on the bowl. I notified the front desk of the problem, and following repeated notifications to the front desk of the leak, it was repaired on the fourth day of our stay. During our stay, the fire alarm went off three times resulting in our evacuating the Hotel down five flights. The Hotel was undergoing major repairs due to the roof leaking and major water damage to dry wall in many areas of the Hotel. The quality of the Continental Breakfast was very poor and second rate. We went out for breakfast after the first morning.
Nothing to like here. The staff was not helpful. The facilities were run down. They were charging way too much for what it is!! Do not be fooled!!!
Friendly, well maintained, pet friendly. Liked everything.
This was the lowest priced place I could find in Mesa for this particular night. There was a glitch with the room key the staff was helpful and brought a new key to me so I could get into my room. The room was clean overall, but the rooms also show their age. Honestly Ramada does not seem to have updated the facilities just slapped their name on the main sign. There are still signs for the original place Dobson Ranch. It was difficult to park and I had to park on the far end of the complex in relation to my room. The room was clean overall, but the rooms also show their age. There might be mold in the bathrooms I could not tell for certain. The bed was not comfortable.
Front desk personnel very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was disappointing. No fruit. Annoying radio on loud that wasn't clearly on a radio station. Irritating static, why bother? Bath tub had no plug, had to use a plastic cup to keep water in.
The front desk guy that checked us in was very friendly. Stains on sheets and pubic hairs in bathroom.
The hotel was convenient to shopping and close to our golf school. The front desk staff were really nice, but they didn't appear to be overly competent. The room was not cleaned properly; bathroom sinks not cleaned; bed very poorly made with bedspread left piled on the floor.
Relaxing atmosphere..nice rooms...outdoor patios for each unit Ability to get a room location that is requested in advance. Why ask at time of booking about your requests if they do not honor it or sem to know that there was even one asked for..if I asked for a back 2nd floor suite..why try & give me a 1st floor front roomm ?? Second time this happened .
It had no internet connection and its staff left a lot to be desired not very helpful. Internet connection was supposed to be available but was not and they could not care less.Of the many hotels I have booked through you this was the first hotel I felt I had to complain about.Finbarr Ross take it off your list.
The facility appears to be clean and the grounds and pool are very nice. It is a good location for our purposes. Hot water was in short supply--especially in the evening. Although the bed was soft and comfortable--the sheets were paper thin and better quality linens could have added comfort to the sleeping experience
the location is very good close to Phoenix and those attractions. We even went to edona for a day trip. The staff helpful. The room was poorly appointed. The bed was terrible. There was very poor water pressure. We could not believe that there wasn't free wi-fi. We found this to be archaic & unacceptable.
I had a single queen room that was large, clean, and very comfortable. Computer available in lobby so that I could check into my flight and print my boarding pass ahead of time. Friendly staff. There was nothing I didn't like.
We liked their breakfast and location Their bathrooms were not clean. There was black hair all of the sides of the wall and looks like the inside of it has never been scrubbed. Sucks that I couldn't wash my children. they have a fridge that was gross . We will not be staying here again
The room was very clean. Comfortable beds. Breakfast had many choices of food to eat. I would stay there again. The pool and jacuzzi were broken down. Was looking forward to taking a morning swim, but didn't happen.
Rooms were clean. Staff was helpful. Great breakfast
The hotel was very accommodating. Great service with a high standard room.
Friendly staff, comfortable bed, clean, quiet, convenient location for my needs. There was some confusion about the rate I had booked on booking.com. I had booked a single rate for 4 nights spanning both weekend and week days but hotel has different rates by type of day. Very promptly and effectively resolved at checkout so was not an issue in the end.
I loved the comfortable bed and the choice of pillows. Every thing was clean and nice, but the bed was Great. I only had two problems with my stay. The first problem was the sheets on the bed. They were clean and smelled wonderful, but what ever made the sheets smell so good was really bad for my sinuses, and very much prevented a good night sleep. The second problem was that I could not get the television out of the pay per view mode. I don't know for sure if was operator error, or a user unfriendly remote.
location was in a nice area, pool was clean and attractive
Total lack of any hassels; freindly helpful staff
The hotel was very kid friendly and beautiful. The river ranch was a blast. Our room was large with a great view. Our room was dirty. It didn't look like the bath tub had been cleaned at all. I had to rinse several hairs down the drain before I could even shower my kids. The carpet was absolutely terrible which became extremely noticeable once my 10 month old started crawling on it. The service was ok some of the staff was super friendly and helpful others were almost rude. All of that being said, I would still stay here again with high hopes of the room being a little cleaner.
It's a nice place, bed was so good Nothing to complain about
The pool was great! The pool staff was excellent and always around if you needed anything! We were unable to check in early, so they said they would text us when our room was ready which should have been by 4 because that's the time of check in. Around 4:30 still no text, so we decided to go check ourselves. When I spoke with the woman at the front desk about checking in she said our room was still not ready. Luckily she moved something around and got us into a room, but what if I hadn't gone to the front desk and just waited for a text who knew how long we would have waited. If check in is at 4 then we should have been in a room by that time. Also the housekeeping never came to clean our room on the second day which I found very odd.
Easy check in They boast "millions of dollars in recent renovations" but the rooms are just awful. I remember this resort from many years ago, and at the time it was very nice. They have basically let the whole place become run down and have milked it for all the money they can get out of it. It is a run down crappy "resort" now, and should be condemned.
This place is beautiful. The grounds and buildings are recently remodeled and they are very clean. The room had a lot of space. Parking was great, and the resort fee was actually worth it for once. They give you a lot for the $24 a night fee, I had no complaints.
The amount of space for the King bedroom suites was very accommodating. There are two separate rooms, a living room area with a pull out bed is great to use if you have additional folks with you or children, and a separate bedroom in case you want more privacy. The staff were very knowledgeable and responsive. I didn't need much assistance, but for the few questions or needs I had, they were quick to aid me. The resort is kept up well. It has stayed up-to-date since my last stay there 20 years ago. I'm happy to see it has been kept in good condition. I went to the spa and the masseuse was incredibly experienced and did an exceptional job. I would highly recommend the spa. There are a few small areas that the resort could improve on: -I noticed it was very difficult reaching hotel staff by phone. I tried every single line (ie Guest Request, Room Service, Front Desk..) just to try to reach someone. This happened to me about 5-6 times within my first 36 hours. They could work on beefing up availability of folks to answer phones. -The spa was fantastic, and one of the showers was very dark, and had one ceiling light which was not in the shower. This made the room dark after pulling the shower curtain. It didn't do justice to the overall appearance to the spa. -Also I would recommend the spa supplying a few creature comforts in the locker room, such as disposable combs for people to use after showers.
Nothing Hvac was loud. Tv had cords and boxes hanging out the side. Guests ran around screaming and play until 11pm
Nice rooms for the price, fun waterpark, but the pools were dirty and the pool pavers were blistering hot on our feet.
I like the location on 16th Street. Nice bars and restaurants close by. Water park was fun. Rooms are a bit dated. Water park was smaller than I was hoping. Not a lot of choices for dining on resort during summer.
I loved the cozy rooms, I get cold very easily so I was able to turn the heat on full blast while being in a SUPER comfy bed. Room service was amazing and very quick and the staff were very nice and helpful.
Aging but acceptable property The practice of a mandatory resort fee seems to be a gouging tactic if you don't use the services. Not against this property specifically, just the industry practice. Other than that, a pleasant stay.
Quality place. No issues and decent breakfast. Good value.
The staff very helpful & courteous. The AC unit it room is extremely loud which interferes with sleep.
Room was nice and clean and comfortable. Had no idea that the place was under construction early morning being woke up by the sound co saws and hammers. so much for the nice relaxing get away.
The breakfast was good; the room was clean and comfortable. The pool could have been a little warmer, and the hotel was difficult to get to. It was behind several other businesses and there was no sign out front.
The bed was so comfortable and and it was quiet. Front desk was friendly. The smell of cigarettes in the room. Room didn't necessarily match the picture but then again does any picture ever match..?
The staff was very courteous, professional and helpful. The hotel, although older, was well maintained.
Location was great and the staff were understanding and very accommodating . The hotel bar was great A Resturant was available in hotel but it's prices were much to high as high class restaurants were nearby and offered affordable meals and a wide variety which wasn't available in hotel. You can't ask high prices for meals with superior competition right next door.
The beds were great! Somewhere in my booking it had "airport" in the name...but we were a relative long way from the airport! Also our room had a smokey smell to it...
It did not feel welcoming
Bed. Linens. Pool. Exercise room I would rather have had a non handicapped room so that I could have used the tub
Very friendly staff. Great location. Great value. Definitely will stay here again
The rooms were nice. The area had many restaurants within walking distance. Close to the freeway and easy to get to. None.
Great location, close to the highway and a ton of restaurants. When we got to our room the temperature was 79* and kept climbing, lowering the setting did not help. We left for dinner, called front desk and they said someone would be up shortly to look. 2 hours later, we returned to the room and the temp was now 80* and nobody had been there. It took a second call, someone came up, fixed it, and then an additional hour before the room was comfortable to sleep in...
In my 5 day stay the only issue I encountered was the room temp wouldn't adjust - a quick call to the front desk and a friendly maintenance person was there in 5 min to apologize and completely resolve. Everything was nice, clean and great! I found my room to be quiet and comfortable too. I'm not familiar with Phoenix and thought this location was central to the area I was going to be spending time in - there was tons of dining options around but otherwise I found that I needed to drive quite a ways to get where I was going.
Staff was helpful and very welcoming. Nice upgrade next to the pool for $10.
Everyone from the two gentleman at the front desk to the woman who cared for us in the 'pub' was extremely pleasant. They obviously value customer service a lot. The only nit-picky thing I can even think of to put as 'bad' would be that the doors and fixtures for the door seem older and don't seem like the most secure thing.
Hotel was easy to find, clean and the staff were friendly and attentive. My disappointment was that the room I was provided was very musty, and was more than likely a smoking room, the web site described the room only as a special. Wish I had known. While the smell of cigerettes was not overwhelming it was enough that I found it irritating and would not stay here again.
Renovated rooms are very comfortable and stylish. Deluxe rooms have a patio and stall shower. Staff throughout the hotel were very friendly and helpful. Buffet breakfast is extensive and well priced. Public areas have been beautifully redone. Did not dislike anything
Loved the Complimentary Drinks and Snacks Pillows were outstanding Front Desk and Staff were great. Very Clean My room was quiet and very confortable Internet Connection was lousy. One piece of toast for Breakfast is just UnAmerican
Lady at the front desk was very helpful finding me food at 12pm.
everything was above and beyond fantastic! incredibly friendly and knowledgeable staff, hip pool with excellent late night vibe, delicious drinks, tasteful decor, all-around cool scene in the heart of phoenix. we'll return whenever we can!
Breakfast. $10 voucher for the in-house restaurant. Rooms & beds were clean and sharp. I booked a Sunday night stay. Apparently they were all-booked for the night before, and after I arrived 30 minutes before normal check in time on Sunday, and they couldn't accommodate me for those 30 minutes and made me wait until the normal check in time.
Staff is great location is great and I love the pool! My room was over the restaurant and had a smell to it but it wasn't unbearable.
Old meets new was fun. Learning more about Don being blown-up in his crappy, small, yellow forgien sports car gave a fun dangerous vibe. Fitness room worked. Loation is great. Covered parking rules. One beat House music is hard to take by the pool trying to read or on the roof watching a beatuful sunset. That music requires the listener to be on lots of really good drugs in a club to be appriciated. However, I dare to say most people thing that music sucks anytime, anywhere while on any drug(s). Clubbing, stockholm syndrome nonsense, sholdn't be forced on everyone in the name of pseudo cool.
Location was good for what I needed. Other than that, stay away. Bedding was clean, staff was attentive and polite, but the place has not been maintained. At all. The property may have ranked a 4 star rating long ago, but it honestly looks like that was the last time they even spent a dime on upkeep of the structure. Again, the employees were great, but the place is a dump. Room had carpet that was withered and frayed, looked like it had been installed in the 80's. As if that wasn't enough of a tip off, there were several huge stains that literally looked like a donkey had urinated a few times - again, quite a while ago. Air vents have not been cleaned since the last century, so if you are into breathing spores, other people's skin cells, and bacteria - this place is for you. I also had the pleasure of sharing the suite with a loud buzzing noise every 55-60 seconds. Sounded like a cell phone on a table vibrating. After a few nights of putting up with this, I decided to investigate. Really with I had not... first I found a huge 36" x 16" hole hacked out of the wall behind a mirror hanging in the connecting hallway to the front room. This had some other mismatching hunk of drywall dangling in it, not really doing much to seal the hole. Emergency plumbing repair unfinished? Maybe the source of the camel pee stains, don't know. Finally, I found the item responsible for the 55 second interval alarm... behind the vent in the ceiling, a cheap recirculation pump was mounted with no thought for vibration dampening. Seriously, this thing was absurdly annoying. Honestly, I've seem far better maintained rooms in a Motel 6 or Super 8, I expected much better from a hotel of this supposed caliber.
Restaurant was good. Junior suite was spacious. No hot water so cold showers all weekend. Towels were old and not very soft. Combo shower/bath was old/cheap. Blinds wouldn't close completely in living room area so privacy was an issue - especially since you could see through to the bedroom. Overall impression is that they took an old, run down 2 star hotel and tried to updated it with hipster accents. I've seen it done well elsewhere but here they fall short.
I like the amenities that were offered. I would definitely stay there again.
Staff was very nice and the restaurant was good. Beds were comfortable and room was a pretty good size. Rooms were a little run down and carpet was a little dirty, some things in the bathroom were broken and bathroom was really small.
Everything! Very Unique.
Nice pool and gym. Great drinks at the hotel bar. Beautiful hotel. They seemed to be incredibly short staffed in terms of housekeeping. On our first night, our room wasn't ready for check-in at 6:30pm -- 2.5 hours after the hotel's check-in time of 4pm. It seemed like it would work out in our favor because we got a room upgrade since our assigned room wasn't ready. But then on our second day our room wasn't cleaned until 4:30pm and on our third day, they didn't clean the room at all -- and we were out of the room from 10am until 9pm! When we called the front desk, they offered to send someone to clean the room, but it took 40 minutes for someone to show up.
Mountain biking and guide (Chip) were excellent. Wright's was outstanding dining all around. Food, service, presentation, ambiance, price. If the entire resort were run like Wrights, this would be a five star resort. Spa services, attendants were great. Megan O. at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. The lobby is beautiful. A Maintanence engineering employee whose name I did not get. The bicycle room service provided a bit of whimsy and were a delight to watch them ride through the resort. The swim up bar is a nice touch, but perhaps should not be immediately next to the kids water slide. Was billed as a five star resort when I booked it. Don't get me wrong, this is a nice place with a lot of history. However, a five star resort implies attention to little details that separate you from other resorts. Those little details were missing. While I understand the main entrance is under renovation, the concrete blocks holding down the umbrellas for the valets looked cheap and haphazard. Not a good first impression. Upon arrival, no one offered to help with my bags, merely pointing me to the direction of the temporary main entrance. At that entrance, there is a small lip in the doorway, making it difficult to maneuver a roller bag. While the front desk did ask if I needed assistance with my bags, no bellhops were around if I did, and given the room location, they should have been more readily available, as my room in the garden wing is on the second floor accessible only by stairs. Upon check-in, I searched for ice (which with a bellhop could have been a non-issue at least for the first day). I could not locate the ice machine, or anything in the in-room literature to direct me. I found a housekeeper and asked her. She did not seem to know either. A maintenance engineering department employee coming out of a guest room overhead the conversation and immediately led me to the nearest ice machine himself. Unfortunately it was broken. Not only that, there was a bus cart full of dirty dishes stowed in front of it. Again, this is the kind of little detail a five-star resort takes care of. The ice machine in the adjacent paradise wing seemed more designed for "back of the house" rather than for a guest to be accessing it. Service at Frank and Albert's was very nonchalant. It did not seem as is they cared if we stayed to eat or not, or enjoyed our meal. Everything seemed to be under construction at once, causing noise throughout the day, from early in the morning until afternoon. When I asked about this, several, employees' response was "well, it's the slow season...." as if I should have lower expectations because it's August. Again, a little detail a five-star resort should nail. Guests should not notice a difference in staff attention regardless of "season." A few other "little details": In the lobby bar, the cords for the TVs and speakers were haphazardly hanging, not neatly along the wall. There was visible water damage on one of the corner speakers. A large cobweb was hanging in the corner and blowing with the AC. There were several areas where grout or paint had dripped onto the pressed concrete blocks from recent renovations but were left there, not removed. The pool desk was open and appeared to be staffed, but was unmanned for five minutes, leading me to walk behind the desk to help myself to clean towels as no one was around. Ultimately, we cut our stay a day short and moved to a different area five star resort, where we did not experience any negative issues.
We celebrated our anniversary and were upgraded to a beautiful suite, and the front desk staff sent a beverage, chocolates and fruit to our room when they learned. Loved the room, the grounds are amazing and enjoyed the amazing amenities. We're planning to return every year.
Truly beautiful hotel. Beautiful grounds. Upgraded us to a private cottage room free of charge. Would love to stay here again soon.
Lots of places to sit and talk. Good facilities. Newly renovated rooms are very nice. Staff is great! Smoking in the general seating areas outside
Many luxury features. Service very good and happy hour nice. Hot tub not warm, bed sagged in middle, no robes, landscapers started gas power hedge trimmers at 8:35am for 45 minutes in courtyard next to room.
Fabulous architecture and gardens; friendly and helpful staff, great breakfasts. Everything! nothing.
Property is fantastic. Amazing history of the Biltmore, as seen in all the photos throughout. Room needed updated
My room was nicely renovated but bathroom much to small. The shower when in use would soak the bathroom floor. The property is getting tired looking, time for a face lift. I returned after 10 years and was disappointed to find gym still to small, spa uninspiring, exercise studio and bike/tennis area a throw back to 1980. I would return to the front portico each morning from a long run and was never greeted by bell staff or offered bottled water as i stood there recovering from the run and sweating from the desert heat. I have become so accustomed to being greeted by staff with bottled water and towel upon returning from jogging at all great hotels that i really resented having to ask for it. The main lobby is beautiful and I enjoyed evening cocktails on the patio adjacent to the lobby. The bar staff was lovely. Lunch and breakfast in Frank and Albert's was painful to endure. Breakfast was so delayed with mistakes to the order and lunch was mediocre. The cafe also disappointed. One meal at each was one too many. Best meals were all off property. My daughter and I walked thru the shops and found once again we were back in the 80's. We love to shop so it was hard to believe there was almost next to nothing to buy. Housekeeping was a bit lacking of management, it seemed. Dirty dessert dishes lingered in my room for two days. The Scottsdale - Phoenix area has so many fabulous resorts, it's to bad The Biltmore doesn't seem to be one of them anymore.
Resort was pretty and acommodations acceptable for price. Narrow roadways and endless views of cars. I was unable to find a way to navigate through the resort without walking through the parking lots. Only room service ordered was a caesar salad with a total cost of over $20. Lettuce had just been washed, but not dried so it was watery with cold cut type chicken placed on top. Very poor especially for a Hilton.
Close to family. The resort is tired and it shows.
Nice room nice pools I stayed on a Monday until Wednesday and it wasn't very busy at all. I was put in the farthest room from the main pool so it wasn't walking distance, did receive shuttle service but would of been nicer to be closer.
as we frequent several valley hotels, we especially loved the adult pool area.................... our room had absolutely no view front or back
beauriful view from the highest point on the property. Rooms are a bit stale and in need of renovation. Sink made weird noises that woke us up. Staff is mediocre at front desk.
My girlfriend and I stayed here for the fourth of July weekend. I will never stay here again ever. The room was dated. The room looked like a road side motel. The pictures and smoke dectors were falling off the wall. The refrigerator door had a hole like some one kicked it. I went to four different ice machines four different times and not one of them worked. I had to drive to the store it was very inconvenient. For the amount we paid for each nigh it was not worth it. We didn't even go to the water park portion of the resort because we were so disappointed with our room
Beautiful location and amenities. We expected great services and top-notch amenities, but the staff and our room were just mediocre. First, we had to wait for 10 minutes to sign in. The check-in agent was tied up with a time-consuming transaction but didn't even bother to apologise for the wait, much less attempt to summon a colleague to help us. Bad form. Next, we paid for queen-sized beds, but our room was outfitted with full-size beds. Wah wah. It was late and we weren't in the mood for making a fuss, but it was just...shabby. Nothing horrible, just not good.
Lounge view awesome went for the sunset and ended up going back for night cap and view of Phoenix at night from the mountain every night. Plenty to do golf, great hiking trails, tennis and great pool area. Since you are literally on top of a mountain restaurants off property are not walk to but a quick 10 minute cab or car ride.
Place is old needs updates Everything
Based upon the first impression of the front desk service, along with the room, I was expecting a perfectly fine stay. Especially, considering, the stay was only for one night. The room was spotless, and super cute! (We got one with a jacuzzi, which is definitely a bonus of this hotel.) there was even a little note from the maid, ensuring we knew it had been cleaned 100%, for our satisfaction. That being said, I was required to call a 1-800 line, for room service? I was directed to an obscure representative, who was way beyond unprofessional, who then, transferred me to the kitchen of, what I found out later, was Streets of New York. Sure, but then why is it called OrderInn, on the room service menu? I just want to know where the food I'm paying stupid amounts of money for, is coming from. Along with several, basic food items, such as, plain old, Garlic bread, that they had, extensively, labeled as "Passion bread", and was being way overcharged for.
Pool area, lobby. Parking was horrible and not convenient in the area we were in
Location to Chase Field. no coffee in room

Location, cleanliness and staff Nope
This place was right in the heart of downtown Phoenix!! Walking distance to anything you wanted. No everything was great from the valet to the greeter to house keeping!!
we were impressed with how quickly we went from valet to registration...location was ideal, as we went to the Diamondback Game...very courteous staff both days...we slept till 9 am, we never get to do that with 7 dogs :-) that we didn't stay 2 nights
Location. It met all of our needs based on the location I They touted a great pool but there was a loud DJ and some sort of pool party all weekend so it was impossible to sit out and relax. Disappointing

We love this hotel. It's convenient to everything downtown, and offers a great pool/bar, and access to EOS fitness across the courtyard. A small sitting area within the rooms would be nice.

As always with kimpton the attention to detail is among the best, with it being one of the few places where the toiletries are better than the ones at home. Probably not the best hotel for families with young kids.
Location and clean rooms. Wine in the evening reception was nice.
