Came here for a birthday stay-cation. Requested a room with a view of South Mountain, and the view is amazing. I was born in the Valley, and was thrilled with the view. I see South Mountain every day, and I had never seen it like this before.
The room (a single king) was spacious, modern, and well-appointed. The A/C worked like a charm. It is a beautiful space. I requested an early check-in, and the room was ready around 11AM!
Walking distance to all kinds of restaurants and bars. Excellent location.
The only downer was the dining experience at the Blue Hound. The food was exceptional, yet the service left a lot to be desired. My partner was essentially ignored; she sat at the bar with an empty drink over and over again. I had to flag the bartenders down for her on multiple occasions. We spent a pretty-penny there, and we did not receive commensurate service. As people of color, her invisibility to the staff played into the worst stereotypes of Arizona.
So, stay at the hotel; this is a great property! Avoid the Blue Hound.
