This was my second time visiting the Hotel Valley Ho in downtown Scottsdale in the middle of March. The purpose of the trip was to get out of the cold weather and to enjoy a couple spring training baseball games. This is a really cool hotel located in a great area. We were in a tower room with a balcony overlooking the pool area...room 303 to be exact. The room is nicely laid out with retro furniture, a modern funky bathroom and a nice balcony overlooking the pool and the morning sun. The balcony was a great place to sit in the sun, drink a coffee and real the newspaper.
The pool area is awesome. Great people watching spot. Food and drink service was excellent. The waitresses even keep you supplied with ice water even if you aren't buying anything. Plenty of chaise lounges. Only negative is that the sun ducks behind the building pretty early this time of year and things cool off a bit.
There is a big long bar with a restaurant that includes an outside patio area. Nice food and service. Again, the outside area is a nice place to have a bite to eat for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
The maid service, valet parking guys and the concierge service are all top notch. We used the concierge service extensively with great success. She would print out maps and made great dinner recommendations. We had massages and facials in the spa which were great. The spa also loans out bicycles which we took advantage of.
The location of this hotel on the edge of downtown Scottsdale/Arts district are fantastic if you like to walk. There are many bars, restaurants and shops to walk that are less than a mile away. Location is outstanding. You don't need to take out the rental car or call a cab if you are willing to walk a bit.
I would highly recommend the Segway Tour which is run by Scottsdale Segway Tours. We had a private tour with Todd of the downtown area of Scottsdale. He gave an amazing tour of the area. He was very knowledgeable and safely oriented. Scottsdale has many neat areas to see on this tour. The tour company will send you a bunch of pictures of yourself while on the tour. Can't say enough about this company!!
