Poor New Management at The Scott

Pros: The gardens and hotel setting remains beautiful. Nice music and clean rooms.
Cons: Coffee, Tea and food all need better quality. If you were used to The Firesky quality, you will be disappointed.
The new Scott hotel ownership and Classic management is not up to the task of running a four star resort. The management is more focused on money than the customer's resort experience. The worst day was when at 1 PM, the busiest time at the pool, a crew of workers started jack hammering the jacuzzi. White concrete dust blowing everywhere and guests complaining about managements choice of timing. The jacuzzi was not operating our entire stay. No apologies were offered just excuses and a defensive posture. Even the pool staff was shaking their head. The new Scott Grill and beverage quality do not come at all close to that of the previous Kimpton ownership and do not deserve a four star rating. When I asked if the burger meat was Angus or grass fed the response from the management was, "This would be prohibitively expensive". LOL! All in all, the management does not seem at all interested in any feedback.

Anniversary Staycation

My husband & I stayed here for 2 nights celebrating 14 years of marriage. The resort was very nice, service at the pool was amazing- they also had live music which was a nice touch. We were suprised with a lovely tray of champagne, chocolates & goodies from the manager with a note congratulating us on our anniversary. Totally unexpected & thoughtful. We'll definitely be staying here again.

Lovely suite and beautiful pool area.

Pros: Great location to shopping and Old Town -easy to walk around. Great for kids.
Cons: We had 2 mini-fridges fully stocked with alcohol that was way overpriced. Leave one empty so guests can store their own drinks and snacks.
Location: Fashion Square mall and the waterfront is a short walk. Near old town and the flavor of Scottsdale.
Loved the complimentary wine bar and lemonade. The Keurig makers in-room were very nice.

Beautiful Common areas, Rooms could use some work

Pros: Pool area, lobby are gorgeous.
Cons: Rooms and hotel staff
Location: Great location close to food shopping and major interstates.
Common areas in this hotel are VERY nice and make up for downfalls. But the hotel staff was not exactly pleasant very short and not helpful they answer you questions periods no more. The rooms are decent not what you would expect when seeing the common areas. They are cheaply remodeled.

Love Arizona with convenient hotel

We wanted to stay somewhere comfortable enough to enjoy but convient to many hiking places and good food sources. It was perfect for that. On the last night of our stay the hotel was much busier and clear that it would not have been as enjoyable because the walls are pretty thin making it a little too loud for our taste.

Close to everything you need in Scottsdale

Pros: Great location; beautiful grounds
Cons: Better parking! Make sure all is in good repair for guests paying top dollar.
Location: Close to a major shopping mall! Also tried a new to me steak house less than 2-minutes away. It was not a chain restaurant but a local establishment
Wonderful hotel experience. Staff was friendly grounds well kept; room comfortable. Two problems. The first room we were assigned to was in a bad location. Corner room, patio facing busy street; absolutely no parking close to room. When I asked for a different room I needed to pay a $20 upgrade fee....still no close parking to room. The second room was comfortable but the shower head would not stay in place actually slammed my chin into the device when I thought we had fixed the problem.

Very Relaxing place

Pros: The grounds, landscaping, and lobby is beautiful.
This is an older facility. The grounds are incredible, so beautiful with lots of mature trees. We had a problem with the airconditioning in the room, it was delt with very prompt and satisfactory.

Thanks for the feedback and the 5 stars! I am sorry the AC wasn't working properly initially, but I am happy my team resolved it for you.

I had mixed reactions about FireSky. The grounds of the hotel are quite nice, especially for being in the middle of a city area. The little sitting nooks were quite charming, and the lobby of the hotel was stunning. The spa had nice rooms but it wasn't your typical spa with a waiting area where you can relax prior to your treatment -- you wait in the "store" part of the spa for your appointment. The most disappointing part was the rooms - not that they were bad, but they were just "ok". After seeing the lobby & entrance of the hotel, I expected the rooms to be equally as elegant, but they felt like just a regular hotel room. Service by the pool was hard to come by on a busy Saturday afternoon, but the pools themselves were nice -- my child really enjoyed the beach part and that was a big draw for us to this hotel in the first place. All in all, I would recommend it because I think others would enjoy the hotel for the price, but if you are looking for an upscale experience, there are other locations in Scottsdale that would be better.

Great Trip - Nice Hotel

The resort was great. It's a little smaller than you might first expect when booking, howeever it's size doesn't take away from any of the charm. The rooms are open and comprtable, and the patios are fantastic. Also the pool and hotub areas set a nice community area where people can meet in a freindly atmosphere. However if you want to have a private conversation with a smaller group there a little private grottos around the area which allow for a more intimate expereince. I'd recommend staying at the FireSky Resort if you want to upgrade your travel experience.
