We have reservations here for the upcoming BCS bowl. We were able to book with starwood points. However, relatives who live in Phoenix have advised against staying in this area, and suggest Scottsdale instead. Any thoughts? Should we stay here for free, or pay a lot more and stay elsewhere? How bad is the area, or are our relatives mistaken? They live in Scottsdale, and admittedly don't head to that part of town often.
