Reviewed 12 September 2013

I flew to Phoenix for a 24 hour business trip and booked Scottsdale Plaza Resort through Hotwire. I was flexible so I didn't pre-pick the property and took the $$ savings. Paid about $95; that was including the resort taxes and was very impressed. The property from the outside looked like an exclusive resort or country club. The lobby area was immaculate and felt very welcoming. The pool area was very large and nicely done; unfortunately being pressed for time I didn't get to enjoy it but it looked very clean and well maintained. The grounds were also very clean and nicely landscaped and put out a peaceful and relaxing vibe. The buildings were overall well kept, inside and out. Being alone I booked the basic room which was small but comfortable and nicely appointed. The TV worked fine and the beds were comfortable with clean linens. The bathroom was not up to the standard of the rest of the room but still clean. I took the opportunity to have a beer in the bar and it was decent. I didn't have the chance to eat there however so cant comment on that. Overall it was a very relaxing experience and if I were to visit Phoenix again soon I would like to take my family there.

Room Tip: Get a view of the nearby mountains.

Stopped here for 3 days and wasn't disappointed. The bedroom was big, clean and well appointed. Food was very good, and breakfast service in particular was friendly with quality food. I'm not sure I get the reference to being dated, yes the place gets a lot of use (as it is very popular), but it wasn't tired. Reception was very helpful and professional. I found the bedroom air conditioning unit above my room (504) a little noisy at night but, for the price, a good place to visit. Had this hotel been in Europe I wouldn't have hesitated to score it a 5, the Arizona Grand just has a slight edge over it (albeit more expensive than the amount I paid) so I think a 4.5 is in order.

Granted we only spent one night because we were on our way to Las Vegas for a concert. We will definitely be back. Overall, the rooms were very clean and very spacious. Grounds were kept up and pool near the front office is very nice and very crystal clear.

The staff at this hotel is very friendly and very helpful. The grounds are pretty and the main pool is very nice. The only complaint I have is that the rooms are a bit dated. I felt like I had been transported back to the 1980s. I was there on business, and the meeting room was very nice. It had stadium seating which is a great idea.

Room Tip: This property is very spread out, so get a place close to the main building unless you don't min...

We stay here with a large group as part of a 4 day event. We booked with our group coordinator about 3 months in advance. The day we arrived, I got a message that they were going to "walk" us, not literally, to a nearby resort (.8 mile away) as they were short rooms. We were comped the 2 nights, that we were displaced which was good. Although, the resort we were moved to was a lower level resort. And our activities for the event were back at the plaza which made the logistics tricky. On Friday, we were moved back. Although, we had to check out of the Cottonwoods, and didn't get our room at the Plaza till just after 4 pm. I have registered a complaint through our group coordinator about how we were treated by a front desk person on Friday afternoon, who needs serious customer service training. That being said, our suite was very nice as usual. Maid service was late at 4:25 pm on Saturday. The maid did a great job and everything was very clean.

We appreciate your business and apologize for the unfortunate timing. We would be privileged to accommodate you and all of our guests in the future and hope you may give us the opportunity to do so.

This was surprisingly just what it was supposed to be. Nicely appointed, clean, comfortable. The grounds offered a lovely place to get some exercise. I swam laps in the main pool. It was off season - so things were pretty quiet. The staff was very helpful. We ate at the restaurant - it was good. The resort was very convenient to shopping and restaurants across the street. I would stay there again!
