5 out of 5
The hotel was in a great part of town, easy to walk wherever we wanted to go. The staff were super friendly and very accomodating. The room was perfect! While the hotel looks "vintage" from the outside, it's very modern on the inside. I loved how to room had double sliding doors that opened to the outside to let the warm breeze in. The pool was fun and the drinks were great! We only ate at the hotel once, but the food was really good. I would definitely recommend staying here!

Best hotel in the greater Phoenix area

Pros: Quiet pool area, midcentury restoration done beautifully, restaurant, staff, location
Cons: Put some towel hooks in the bathroom!
Location: Right at the end of Main Street in Old Town Scottsdale! Tons of restaurants, galleries, bars, etc just across the street! Free trolley too!
Hotel Valley Ho (or "The Ho", as we came to call it) is the best hotel in the greater Phoenix area. Minutes from the airport, zoo, walking distance to tons of great restaurants, galleries and bars, a few more minutes to Taliesin West. This place has everything -- a cool, party pool area with bars and hot tubs, and a quiet pool area with fountains -- so no matter what your mood is, you can fit right in. The ZuZu restaurant is excellent, the wait staff the best we've ever encountered (recommend the specials, the filet, and the stroganoff). The grounds were clean and beautifully manicured. Ask the concierge about the property tour that's available -- even though you have to pay for it, you get a 20% off certificate for the restaurant or the spa (we more than made up for that cost in one nice dinner).

Perfect experience

Pros: Design, pool, staff, chairs.
Retro hotel that offers all the modern amenities. Awesome pool, comfortable rooms, great bar/lounge with tons of different seating options. Lunched on our last day in the restaurant while we listened to live music. Everything was perfect!

Nice Staycation in Old Town Scottsdale

I stayed here for a last minute staycation with my girlfriend. The pool was excellent and we really enjoyed just lounging around and sipping on their great mixed drinks. The room and building was definitely old but renovated and quite clean. The room was a bit noisy however and I was woken up a few times during the night by either neighbors (thin walls), cars driving by (building was right next to main road), and people going in and out of their cars in the parking lot. We ordered late night room service and were quite pleased with the Chicken Matchsticks. A little pricey but fast delivery and good portion size. The staff was extremely helpful and couterous. Great spot for a staycation or if you want to bar hop around Old Town without driving as it is only about a ten minute walk to most bars and restaurants.

A great trip back to another era done perfectly with today's comfort- love this place. Food was great and room was very comfortable.

I spent one night at the hotel and the experience was very positive from the check in to check out. I ate dinner at the bar and the bartender (Molly) was very friendly and helpful- and the food was really good. Tuna ahi sliders, kale salad and the onion rings were the highlights. The room was very clean and fresh- it felt recent in terms of linens and towel. Decor was modern. Shower worked wonderfully. Great experience- cant wait to go back.

The hotel received us well and courteously. Everything went smoothly.We were completely satisfied.

Cons: No free Internet
The air travel, the car rental and the hotel were all handled very well. The hotel Talley Ho in Scottsdale, AZ, was a bit expensive but clean, comfortable, with excellent room service. The only disappointment was the lack of free internet access.
