Check in was smooth and room 205 is clean and quiet. There are USB chargers in the room, which was nice. The breakfast area has hot breakfast as well as fruit, cereals and milk, breads and the condiments. Our internet was a little slow, but livable. Overall, this was a great stay!

Justin greeted us as Spire Elite members on arrival and made early check-in a breeze. He was excellent and provided help with nearby attractions and business center. Room was excellent and e-mail ahead of time telling us we got an upgrade was a nice touch.

My wife and I were spending our first night of our honeymoon here before he flew out the next day, and stayed there because of their park and ride program, and because, back in my road warrior days, Holiday Inn Express was a good place to go for a comfortable, reasonably priced room. My, how things have changed! While everyone...

The new renovations look like they should be done soon. I had a great suite on the 4th floor that was setup well and clean. My friend stayed on the first floor in a basic room. His door had such a large gap around the door handle you could open it with a room key and I don't mean using...

We usually stay here to Park and Fly or their sister hotel next door, the Hilton Garden Inn. I hadn't stayed here is a while so tried it again. It has been remodeled and is very nice, but really contemporary. The sitting area in the room is an uncomfortable built-in bench against the wall. Awful! The desk chair was fine....

While I typically do not care what a hotel room looks like, even though this hotel has been recently remodeled, I've seen hospital rooms prettier. The door to my room does not close tightly, so any other room door near me that opens or closes sounds like someone is trying to come in to my room. They leave their hotel...

Two years ago, I stayed here while I attended a conference. When I found out I had been booked in the same place this year, I was not thrilled to say the least. To my surprise, the hotel had been remodeled during the past two years and now it is gorgeous! The colors are bright! The bed was soooo soft!...

I stayed at this location for three days and two nights. I was lucky enough to meet Susie, one of the Guest Service Agents. I met her during my first morning breakfast. My co-worker had left the dining table without throwing away his plate, cup, etc. Susie walked over to inquire and I commented he made a mess! She and...

We have used this hotel on several occasions. We've always had clean, well-appointed rooms, and absolutely nothing to complain about. We find it very convenient for flying in or out of Sky Harbor. Not much else to do in that area. Main downside is that there is nothing within walking distance (a place to eat for example). The hotel has...

We only stayed one night after flying into the Phoenix airport. Our room was clean and updated and the staff was friendly. Hotel is located near office buildings and even though the hotel offers free breakfast there is a Waffle House right next door for an additional breakfast option.
