“Always a great experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

Stayed here for 2 nights on Am EX Centurion. Upgraded to mountain vista suite was is a great casita with a family room, dining area and small kitchen. Breakfast at elements was first class each day as was lunch at elements. Pool was very nice and they have a great staff to keep you cool. Spa facilities is first rate. Had a massage and facial. Massage was only ok but facial was great. My wide had 2 services which she said was great. Summer great time to go with great rates and specials and Scottsdale is a nice area.

Stayed June 2014, travelled as a couple

Just back from my fourth or sixth stay at The Sanctuary in Scottsdale, and thoroughly satisfied with the venue in general and the service in particular. Front desk, concierge, valet, restaurant staff, room service, and housekeeping all combine--on a very consistent basis--to make this property a very easily recommendable property.

Definitely looking forward to my next stay.

Room Tip: Suites are sizable enough to comfortably accommodate in-room business meetings with up to six attend...

The setting, in paradise valley, at the foot of beautiful camelback mountain, is about as good as it gets in Phoenix. The sunset was beautiful from my terrace. The decor was tasteful and my suite was spotless. I loved the little kitchen area.

I stayed at the Sanctuary with my 16 year old daughter. We shopped and hiked and sat by the pool. I would stay at the Sanctuary again....in a heartbeat!

Food was phenomenal, staff where extremely friendly and helpful, and the beauty of the rooms and scenery will leave you speechless during your hole stay. Can't wait to be back. Food was the best thing on earth or did I already say that:).

I recently spent one night at the Sanctuary at the end of a week of business travel. My trip ended in Scottsdale and a colleague suggested I stay at the Sanctuary. The room was beautiful, the service friendly and efficient, the food delicious and I had one of the best massages of my life! I would totally recommend this hotel to anyone who would like to get away to relax. I wish I had time to explore the gorgeous Camelback Mountain in the Sanctuary backyard!
