10.0 Excellent
Pros:Great view on the 9th floor facing East
Cons:We found a dirty sock in our room. Eww.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Beautiful suite, location, casino, food & services.
9.7 Excellent
Pros:We stayed in an Executive King Suite, which had a balcony that provided us with a great view of Camelback Mountain and the southeast valley. The room was clean and well appointed.
Cons:Easier access to the West Parking Garage would have been nice, as we had to walk through the casino to get to the parking garage each time. There was no direct access from our hotel elevator to the West Parking Garage.
8.2 Great
Pros:The view was good
Cons:Bigger bath tub
8.8 Great
Pros:Beautiful, good price through kayak
Cons: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.
8.0 Great
Pros:Loved everything about my stay except the spa.
Cons: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.
2.0 Bad
Cons: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.
9.1 Excellent
Pros:Room design is great! Room is very comfortable.
Cons:Fort Knox ... the process for getting into the pool was ridiculous. 4 stages of security... worse than TSA
9.4 Excellent
Pros: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.
Cons: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.
6.8 Okay
Pros:My room had a fabulous view and was very clean besides the two huge bugs that were flying around next to the bedside lamp.
Cons: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.
