Stayed at the Hampton Inn-Westgate in Glendale, AZ in early Oct '13. It was wonderful. I had a conference at the Renaissance Spa and Resort, about 100 yds directly across the street from the Hampton.
We had a very clean, 2 queen bed suite. Mattresses and bedding were clean and comfortable. It wasn't 2 separate rooms (living & bedrm) as we thought. It's a very large room with 2 queens, a sleeper couch, mini fridge, microwave, bar sink, very generous marble counter, and two large windows. No balconies at this hotel.
The bathroom was large with a tub/shower combo, 1 sink with limited countertop (had to place toiletries on towel rack, and on a large computer desk outside of the bathroom. Not sure why countertop wasn't extended, bath had plenty of room for it.
The room also had 1 large flat screen tv that swiveled as you sat in various spaces.
Breakfast was full: Omelettes, various breads and danishes, turkey sausages, fruit (mixed & fresh), oatmeal, waffle maker, various coffees, teas, & juices. Food was great, with a generous area of tables, booths, and couches to eat and read, or watch tv. Hours 6am-10am, I believe. Bananas and apples were out in the afternoon and evening if available. (If there are youth sports teams around grab the fruit when you can) :)
Ample parking. No shuttle to the airport. Used Zetian Limousine service to and from the airport. Each way was $18, possibly a special for our conference, they even picked us up at 3am for a 5:30am flight home. The hotel van did take me over to the Renaissance for my meetings on hot mornings, I walked back in the evening. However, the driver did say to call for a return if needed.
Walmart and Target are about 1-2 hot miles away in opposite directions. The frontdesk arranged for a car service to take us. The driver, Albert, dropped us off and came back and got us at whatever time we specified. Cost us $20 total, and he also stopped and let us pick-up some lunch on the way back. We bought bottled water for our room. It's $1/bottle at the Hampton. If you have room stick some bottles in your luggage to get started. No mini-marts or quick-stops near hotel. Early Oct was 90-100 degrees.
Sports: Ladies and Moms there are clear plastic tote and purse restrictions for the NFL Cardinals at the University of Phoenix stadium. Could only find clear purses, and clear totes at Walmart, none at Target. Be sure to check the online restrictions, because they will turn you around. You can carry a non-clear size specified wallet with a strap. Air conditioned stadium. Superbowl 2015 will be at this stadium.
No clear purse, or clear tote restrictions for the NHL Jobing Arena hockey game we attended. Wear closed toed shoes and carry a jacket or shawl, it gets cold for the hockey games, though it's 90 degrees outside.
Both venues were spectacular, the food and seating were great, ample space in the seats. And again, all within a 100-200 yd walking distance of the Hampton.
The Hampton Inn swimming pool was a good size, with ample chairs and shade. Hot tub was also ample size.
Stayed a total of 7 days and would definitely return again!
