    Beautiful, good price through kayak

    Beautiful, good price through kayak

    We have younger children (10, 11) and there wasn't really a warning in the search results that this isn't really a place for them. This place has a casino and is better equipped for adults only.

    Great Hotel but Spa NOT up to par with other local

    Loved everything about my stay except the spa.

    I received 2 services at the spa which were stellar and the service providers equally fantastic. The front desk staff and attendant however, were in a rush to close over a half hour so they closed parts of the spa facilities early and wouldn't accommodate a later appointment time. There are MANY spas to choose from in Scottsdale and this used to be one of my favorites.

    Our girls weekend was horrible. First it was 50.00$ to get into the pool with 2,000 other people. So we had to find another resort to relax at. And then our plumbing went out and was not accommodated until we called and complained. We were told to use the bathroom in the casino and we had no place to shower. The only bright spot was the front desk manager upon check out who was completely embarrassed about how we were treated.

    fun pool party and overnight stay.

    Room design is great! Room is very comfortable.

    Fort Knox ... the process for getting into the pool was ridiculous. 4 stages of security... worse than TSA

    Mother/Daughter Getaway

    This was a great location for our AZ getaway. We loved the amenities, enjoying several of the restaurants on location, every pool and hot tub option, and really loved the gym with a view.

    While we knew there would be smoking on the casino level, since neither of us smoke, the fact that the entire floor, including the check in desk, reeked of smoke, was offensive. I think the resort would be better if the check in area was relocated away from the stench of smoke.

    My room had a fabulous view and was very clean besides the two huge bugs that were flying around next to the bedside lamp.

    The check in process was a headache. They gave terrible directions from the check in counter to the elevator and I had to ask several employees where and how to get to my room. Not to mention I was on the 13th floor and the elevator didn't even have a button for "13", so again I had to go down to the 1st level and ask the security person at the hotel entry. The valet guys left a lot to be desired too.

    We loved our room being upgraded, The balcony was awesome! Great view, Good staff. The facility was beautiful and very clean.

    Only 1 chair, 1 robe, 1 slippers, and one soap even though there were 2 of us. Would be better for me as a first timer to have had better instructions from the check in counter on everything from what we can and can't take to our room to how to work the heater.

    good stay

    The entire facility was very clean, very nice staff, the text messaging for room status was great especially since I was messaging a real person and not a computer

    The price was a little high but that could have been because of the near holiday weekend

    The rooms were nice, beds comfy, and food was good. The pool and facilities were clean and well kept.

    The noise was outrageous. Me and my girlfriend went to get away from the kids and have a relaxing "staycation." People were partying so loudly on our floor we could feel the base coming from the music in their room. Alerted hotel staff multiple times regarding this issue and it was not taken care off. We were also promised a call back from the security manager and never received one. The music and yelling lasted until about 3 am (our first complaint was about 1030pm.) will never stay hear again due to the lack of concern by staff regarding the problem we encountered.
