“I could have moved right in !”
Reviewed 25 May 2010

The room was more like a one bedroom apt. with all amenities. I especially liked the comfort of a good mattress and high quality linens and towels. My room overlooked the inner garden and pool and was quiet. I could have slept all day if time permitted. I also loved the location of the hotel which is a very s hort walk to restaurants and shops of the highest caliber. This is truly a "hidden gem" in Scottsdale and I would definitely return.

This hotel was not worth going to again.

The free breakfast must be put in their price for the nighty rate, since the room is overpriced. Breakfast was good - hot and cold items, and saved us the time of going somewhere else. We never attended the beer and wine reception, but they must put that in the nightly rate too.

The suite was dingy, small and outdated. The dishes I pulled out of the kitchenette were dirty - meaning they were not washed at all - grease and food was still on them! I just didn't trust the cleanliness of this place. The "workout" room was small and felt like it was in the basement of a rotted out apartment building.

The hotel has a deal with the Gainey Health Club and spa within walking distance (about 5 minutes). The spa was beautifully done, with a small hot tub, sauna and steam room in the women's room, but not a place to spend the day. The pool was not a leisure pool, but it was outside and more of a lap pool (great, if that is what you are looking for!). The Health Club had a TON of classes - the yoga was good for a health club yoga class!

Good thing we only used the hotel for sleeping and breakfast.

If you are looking for a small hotel with all the amenities of a huge resort, but on a smaller scale and at a fraction of the cost, then choose Gainey Suites. It is right in the heart of Scottsdale but secluded from the hustle/bustle. The accommodations (we had a 2 bedroom suite) were excellent and they were the cleanest if not the cleanest accommodations we have ever stayed and we have stayed in some of the best resorts in North America, including the Phoenician and the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess!
All the staff, from the reception to the cleaning staff, were always so accommodating and knowledgeable!
The free breakfast every morning in the Hearth Room was an excellent way to start the day. The items served were so varied that we ate there almost every morning during our stay. Likewise the manager's reception every evening -- again excellent.
The grounds and pool area so enticing for relaxation!
All the little extra touches like the teddy bears in the room, the chocolate chip cookies from Paradise Bakery, just superb! Also the location is excellent especially with the Gainey Village right next door -- with the variety of restaurants we were able to walk to dinner every night. We would recommend this hotel to everyone!

Our room was very clean, the bed was incredibly comfortable, and the food was excellent! I loved the happy hour offered everyday. The pool and courtyard area were beautiful and relaxing. I would definitely stay here again!

We stayed here for one night before catching our flight home. We read all the great reviews and figured this is it! It was very nice, but I can't imagine staying there for more than one night. What would one do? The pool is very pretty. The appetizers at dinner and breakfast in the morning were good. Cookies at front desk - yummy. Bedrooms tiny, but we had a suite, so there was a living area. Everything is very clean and neat.

This hotel is conveniently located 4 miles from downtown Scottsdale, but in a quiet area off Scottsdale Road. We were greeted with fresh cookies from the nearby Paradise Bakery. The room was very spacious and included a comfortable king bed, LCD TV, working desk, sofa and full kitchen. The included hot breakfast features a daily changing menu. The managers reception in the evening included hot snacks, salads, soft drinks, beer and wine. The heated pool is spacious and has many padded chaise lounges, chairs, tables and umbrellas. Wi-fi and parking is free. The only issues we had was a missing light bulb, running out of tissues and toilet paper and a broken iron. However, a call down to the front desk had someone bringing these items up within minutes. Overall, this hotel is a very good value.

Gainey Suites is the perfect place to stay in Scottsdale. It is beautiful, friendly, and well located. The complimentary breakfast and "cocktail hour" saved us lots of time and money. The rooms are spacious and clean. The affilitated health club/spa is literally a seven minute walk and had great massages. The center courtyard is absolutely gorgeous with a very nice pool and hot tub. Our kids loved the cute teddy bears waiting for them in our room and really enjoyed the endless basket of fresh gourmet chocolate chip cookies at the front desk. If you are traveling to Scottsdale and need a central hub for all of your daily adventures, this is THE place to stay!
