Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak Resort
Ranked #45 of 174 Hotels in Phoenix
Reviewed 20 November 2013

We decided to catch the last bit of heat in Phoenix before we settle in for the winter, and decided to try the Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak this time rather than the Tapatio Cliffs we've stayed at before. Turned out very well.

We had booked a suite on points for a reasonable 30,000/night and got upgraded to a Casita, which is basically a third of a largish house. A nice spacious downstairs and a slightly cramped upstairs with two beds and a bathroom. The downstairs includes a stovetop, microwave, full size fridge, a TV/couch area, a dining table area, and a separate bathroom. Very spacious. You'll get a little tired of dragging your stuff up and down the stairs but whatever, the casitas are pretty great.

Ours was in the low 3000's, and was only a short walk from the pool/lazy river area. The poolside restaurant was shut down as it was off season. In fact the hotel was relatively empty. As Platinums we got chits for $11.50 x 2 at the hotel restaurant, Riccos? Anyway, it was very good, and offered either a buffer for like $17 or various breakfast dishes in the $12ish range. Our 3yo ate free.

The pool area was nice. Decent bar. Both a kid-friendly entry area to the pool (shallow) and a separate warmer "tadpool" where the toddlers tended to congregate. Next to the tadpool is a play area with a nice climbing apparatus.

You're not that near things like you are at Tapatio. So if you want to take a walk in the desert or whatever you'll probably be getting in your car. But the whole lazy river thing is really great and shouldn't be missed.

This is my 2nd visit to Hilton, Checkin was excellent fast and efficient ...
plus without asking we were given free Wi-Fi and told this would be removed at Checkout.
As we went in Oct the Hotel was not busy at all..Downside was Hole in the Ranch restaurant not open at all during our stay this was disappointing.
The food we had at breakfast at Rico's was nice but the service was slow and poor.
The food we had at the Slim Picken's was also not so good and so only had it the one time.
The evening meal at Rico's though was excellent and service was lovely so we eat there 3 times.
Overall this Hotel is fantastic for children and yes it is out-dated but our room was clean.I would stay again.

This Hilton property has great mountain views and is found in a neighborhood setting. The staff were exceptionally courteous as I made my reservation, extending a complimentary upgrade, and were just as pleasant upon check-in. The property is a bit dated, but to me, that is part up the charm! The lazy river water park is just awesome, but I think people thought we were crackers being in the water at this November date! I actually live in the area and suggest this property to friends and family so they can stay close-by.

Room Tip: If you check-in late, ask for a easy to locate room. Staff will escort you to your room, but it can...

The room was clean and fresh and the resort facilities were great for both adults and children. The Hole in the Wall restaurant was closed and lunch had to be sent to the pool area from the main restaurant which took too much time. Overall, however, it was a very pleasant experience.

We stayed here the beginning of November. It's a return trip as we love the Hole in the Wall River Ranch! It has a lazy river, some pools, hot tub, tennis, basketball, and 18 holes of fun mini-golf included with your stay. The hotel also has a pool outside all of the rooms if the river ranch is closed for the evening or if you just don't want to walk over to the river ranch. The lobby coffee shop is a Starbucks and offers some breakfast choices.
The rooms could use an update-- we moved the coffee table to pull out the hide-a-bed, and you could actually see the ring where the coffee table sits- the carpet and furniture are older and worn.
However, I slept on the pull-out couch (I snore something terrible), and it was amazingly comfortable!!! Also- the showers have great pressure with loads of hot hot water.
We will return, but are looking forward to the day they update.

This is really more of a hotel than a resort. It's nice and it's very large, but is really nothing special. The rooms are typical of a nice hotel room. It's quiet. My room had a balcony, but it overlooked the parking lot, so nothing special. If you are looking for a dependable, quiet place to stay, this is it.

My wife and 16 month old have just returned. We had a casita which was amazing. We were about 20' from the pool.
River ranch was a lot of fun. They even have a kiddie pool for the kids which is 1' deep.
Check in check out was no hassle and very quick. The girls at the front desk are very helpful as they upgraded us to a 2 story casita for 20$ a night.
Very close to some amazing hiking trails in paradise valley. Only about 15 mins from scottsdale road. There is a Safeway about 5 mins from there too.

I'd go back.
