Beautiful room and great staff

I can't wait to stay here again. I stayed in the bi-level king suit and it was an awesome 2 floor room. It was clean and very comfortable. The staff here was amazing, kind and helpful and very friendly. I didn't want to leave, wish I could have stayed longer. But I will definitely stay here again and I recommend them 100%. You will not be disappointed.

Very nice hotel, minor issues.

Pros: Very spread out (40 acres) which was great for solitude and spaciousness. We loved the grounds and the suite with its own patio. Very relaxing.
Cons: Some staff haughty; the cafe breakfast service and food was bad; ordered a six pack of coke from room service and it was $43; hot tub luke warm.
Location: Lots of great restaurants just a few miles away. We caught a Spring Training game over at Salt River Fields. Scottsdale is very nice.
My wife and I stayed for three nights in early April and the hotel itself was great overall. It was 75-80 degrees and mostly sunny each day. My advice- stay at the resort, it is gorgeous, but rent a car and eat elsewhere. Everything is very pricey except for the room itself; it felt like a tourist trap whenever we ate or ordered anything "on campus." Exception- We had dinner at Remington's and it was expensive but delicious.

Not worth the money! Very disappoint!

Had to call for more towels! Booked room for three people and there was only two towels in bathroom! ! Hair in sink! Frig dirty! Coffee table had food and some kind of sauce on it and floor had rice! Drunk guest at pool and two people smoking pot! Called the front desk and they said they would send securty but not sure why they werent out checking the pool areas!!!!! The toliet was very loud when you flushed it! Breakfast was good at restaurant but was expensive and the waiter rolled his eyes when I asked him to stand where I could see him! There are too many great places to stay that offer free breakfast and the rooms are clean! I told the front desk when I check out and called the Manager a few days after we got home, but all I got was They were very sorry!!!

Scottsdale Paradise

Cons: Allowing the A/C to be turned down lower. Some people would like it to be cooler at night.
This is a lovely place to stay! I was only in town for 2 days and didn't get to enjoy all of the amenities but it was all so very nice. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I will definitely be staying again and recommending to my colleagues.

We regret if the AC could not be set at where you feel most comfortable. With such a large resort- we have to be careful at where certain levels would cause it to freeze up. Thank you for the kind words about the team members and the resort- whether business or pleasure we hope you will return again soon.
