Not a true resort experience

Cons: non paying guests allowed in
After much research we opted to travel to Scottsdale for a 5 day get away and choose to stay at the Westin Kierland. Regrettably so. Upon arrival there were masses of kids running throughout the lobby, screaming and climbing in the water feature. I am not sure if I should have been more appalled that their parents were allowing them to do this or that the resort was over looking that it was happening. We spent our time at what was said to be the adult pool which apparently does allow children to play in. The big disappointment was later in the week when a national convention was being held at the resort, one of the guests invited all of their friends who were not staying at the Westin to come to the pool. For the last two days of our vacation the pool was more like spring break in Daytona. Many of the guest who were laying on the lounge chairs sunbathing got hit with frisbees and nurf balls. The room was comfortable and very clean, although the air conditioning unit blades could not be adjusted so the cool air would blow directly on us. For the expense of our stay we defiantly were expecting a higher standard of service.

Great place to stay with a family

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet, great beds!
Cons: No free Internet
My family and I had a great time at the Westin Kierland Resort. The water park was great and the location was awesome - right in the midst of all the great shopping the Kierland area has to offer...we could just cross the street and walk to great shopping and food, plus it was an easy drive to downtown Scottsdale. The room was incredibly comfortable and quiet. Would definitely stay there again.

Excellent value for the money - would never have to leave hotel!

Will definitely return. We loved everything about the hotel! The location was perfect, rooms were quiet and clean, staff was helpful. The best part of the hotel was the pools and lazy river. The area is large enough that even on a holiday weekend in the heat of summer it never felt crowded. The variety of restaurants on site made it easy to choose something for everyone. Truly, you would never have to leave the hotel!

Perfect Weekend

Preface; The weather was ideal and we had an upgraded room on the fifth floor that faced north over the lake and golf course. My wife and I are locals and were looking for a spot to celebrate my birthday. There are alot of places to choose from in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area and we have tried many of them for a quick get away. Overall, this was as good an experience as I have ever had at a hotel-resort. The grounds are beautiful and relaxing whether you want to take a walk around or just plop down and have a drink. The multi level lobbey area was like being on a cruise ship with a meriad of activities to celebrate the new 007 movie release. The room was spotless, the bed comfortable and the double headed shower novel. Do yourself a favor and eat at the upscale Deseo restaurant. Chef knows what he's doing when it comes to flavors. His dishes are flavorful and unique without overpowering the taste of the entree itself. He prepared us small portions so we were able to try several of the menu items and they were all special...""have you tried the shrimp"",OMG try the sea bass; ""I can cut the beef with my fork""; ""have you tried this thing yet"". If I had to order a single entree I don't know which I'd select. The weekend was not inexpensive but it was exctly what we were looking for and more.

Vacation with Children WONDERFUL WESTIN!

We vacationed with two children, 13 and 11. The resort staff was polite, eager to please. They went out of their way to acknowledge us and our needs. Pool was great. Lazy River was the best (especially after visiting the pool bar). Housekeeping was wonderful, when we wanted to sleep in, left late, they were always right there to clean up when they got the chance. Beds were just like home, down comforters and the linens smelled wonderful! Bagpipe player was great! Watched while eating dinner at the cafe. Golf course was beautiful. Pool staff waited on us had and foot, always delivering fresh pitchers of ice water to each and every guest at the pool. It was great. I have a new found love of the Westin and will continue to book stays w/them in other cities. My family would love to revisit the Westin Kierland Resort! Area was beautiful, resort was worth every penny! They also welcome pets, although we vacationed without ours! MUST SEE!

Enjoyed it...

Very comfortable. Service staff helpful overall. Spent a day at the on-site spa; recommend the massages and facials. Also did a complimentary yoga class which was fun. Certain things were on the pricy side (room service, valet parking, etc.) versus comparable level hotels in other cities--Dallas and Kansas City, for example--but service was good/speedy. Lots of business travelers while I was there, so things were pretty crowded, esp for summer in Phoenix! Hotel (other than lobby/bar area) was pretty quiet, considering the number of guests. Check out Kierland Commons across the road for shopping and other restaurants, or try Scottsdale Road for the same.

A perfect week

What a fabulous place! The location allowed us to take a breathtaking drive through the montains to Sedona, evenings in Tempe and old Scottsdale, and mountain hiking. Two glorious afternoons by the pool, evenings by the fire outdoors. Couldn't have been better!
