“Great Family Vacation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2014 via mobile

We just left the SPR and we had such a fantastic time. The high lights: CLEAN!!! From our casita to the grounds, pool, pool house bathroom?!- all sparkling. The staff obviously take pride in their work and it shows. Every staff person greeted us and were so friendly. LOCATION !!! The resort is minutes from everything but it also feels miles away from hustle bustle. SPACIOUS !! Our two story casita worked so well for our family w parents and three young adults . We took the sofa bed and gave the three kids the double beds . We each had large great bathrooms ( did I mention spotless?!) a great patio off of the living rooms, flat screens to watch our March Madness. One minor glitch... The sofa bed was a bit..lumpy? We complained and the bed was promptly made w a feather bed topper. We slept fine. We plan on going back next year.. And we will most definitely stay here . It's not the Princess or Phoenician... But instead of leaving with "hotel remorse"( spent so much on a room you were hardly in.. Etc) we can't thank you enough!!
Thanks !

This was my 3rd timing staying at this hotel. I love the well maintained, spacious grounds. I dont feel like I am staying right on top of another guest. Generally the resort is quiet! While the hotel is a little dated, it is always clean and comfortable. The pool areas are well maintained. The onsite bar has good food! A little pricey, but good.(popcorn should be a free luxury) The young lady who checked me out had a great personality. I wish I could remember her name to thank her properly. (Very skinny, short, fun haircut) Overall a very nice stay again!

This is a large resort and I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the property. Attended a convention and thought this was top notch.

The staff is friendly and helpful. As mentioned, the resort is large with multiple buildings throughout and you may need to get a bell man to bring you to your room in a golf cart. The lobby is nice but not pretentious.

There is nice restaurant and lounge with jazz music called Remington's. Did not eat here but really enjoyed the lounge. JD's lounge is a sports bar with good food. A few other more casual places are on the premises. There is an excellent Sushi restaurant across the street called Roka Akor which was magnificent. A Starbucks is also across the street.

I stayed in a two floor room - bedroom on top, living room on bottom. Patio and a balcony. 2 full bathrooms. Felt more like an apartment than a hotel room. Clean and comfortable.

Pool is very nice and fairly quiet but warm in late March. Decent workout facility.

Excellent convention facilities.

Spring training is close - saw the A's and Mariners play in Phoenix.

Highly recommend if you are going to Scottsdale area.

Just spent a long weekend at the Scottsdale Plaza for a work event... While obviously an older facility, I found the hotel to be clean and a great place to stay! The pools were nice, food was good and I would definitely return!

The hotel is BIG and definitely beautiful. The rooms are a bit outdated but are still very nice and clean. Very comfy bed. Great service. They provide shuttles for free. Dave, the driver, was very nice and courteous. I would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Don't call a taxi. Free shuttle.

First impressions are very misleading at this resort. You are greeted by a bellman, before walking into a nicely presented marble foyer and reception area. The grounds of the resort and very well manicured. On your way to the room, you pass by a nice restaurant and bar, nice outdoor pool, and very well kept sauna and tennis courts. That's where the well presented areas stop...

The rooms are a disaster; glad my work was paying for this place and not me. If it wasn't for the flat screen TV you would think you just walked through a time-warp into 1988. EVERYTHING, except the TV was out dated. The mattress was uncomfortable, the pillows were cheap and there was a massive mirror in the room so everywhere you look you keep seeing reflections of yourself.

I began thinking that maybe i was unlucky and got a bad room, and then my co-workers who were staying in other parts of the resort had the same experience as me. I chose this place because of location to where my business meetings were. I learned my lesson. Only stay here is somebody else is paying for it, and ALL other hotels are sold out.

Quality of food was high. Service was great. Rooms were beyond a joke.

Room Tip: Stay at a different hotel

This is such a neat place to stay. Very convenient to everything. The rooms are clean, the hotel has a southwest feel (I would hope so). The employees are gracious. The food situation leaves a lot to be desired. I would definitely eat elsewhere. Across the street is a Mall that has a Roka Akor in it...don't miss it. Easy to get transportation from the hotel to just about anywhere and you can book fun trips if need be.

Room Tip: Ask for a room close to the front desk area. This resort is spread out and if you are off the beate...
