“refreshing take on Old Town Scottsdale”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

Old Town gets a "refresh" with the VH.
Most properties cater to the business traveller with inexpensive chain outlets from Hyatt, Hilton, Marriott, etc. The VH provides a new take for the business traveller or for anyone that does not want to pay for a huge resort and the resort fee that comes with it.
This hotel serves the single or couple traveling that does not need all the big resort amenities but would rather keep things simple.
Crowd that enjoys the VH tends to be very young, and the business traveller that wants a bigger room, cooler vibe than the chain hotels provide.

Would strongly suggest the SPA for a massage, the gym is first rate, and the bar in the lobby is very convenient, Greg and Ted tend the bar and are terrific.

Overall, very convenient size, the remodel is retro cool, and location is just on the boundary of Old Town. Certainly worth a visit.

Room Tip: Pool facing room is worth additional cost. Building 4 has convenient parking.

This was a great place...contemporary/modernistic design....really spacious rooms with a nice patio with lounger for 2 and a bistro table/2 chairs. Our room had a long soaking tub and a walk in shower, very comfortable king bed with 4 great king pillows!. Easy walk to Old Town Scottsdale....Great pools..one for the young at heart and one for the environmentally quiet!

This is a great hotel, depending on what you are looking for. It's right in the heart of Old Town Scottsdale. You can walk/cab to hundreds of restaurants and bars. The decor is really cool, all retro. We stayed over the weekend. Upgrade to the studio suite with the stand alone tub in the middle of the room if you can. The ladies said the spa was top notch. The bar had some great drinks and the breakfast was decent (take a short walk or cab to the Breakfast Club for twice the portions and the best breakfast food in town). There was a pool party with a DJ on Saturday. If you are into a college frat party then I'd recommend going for one of these planned parties. If not, stay away. The parties obviously carried over into the rooms. You really cannot go wrong with this place. If you are looking for a chain hotel, there are plenty to choose from. If you are looking for a different hotel with a great vibe, stay here.

This is an amazing hotel. I've had the opportunity to stay at hotels in San Francisco, New York, and Los Angeles and must say the service at Hotel Valley Ho is outstanding. Oh, and the red velvet waffle is a must try!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the pool. Amazing!

The hotel is OK: Big rooms with balcony and nice bathrooms, 2 swimming pools and plenty of space around. On the other side, I've taken dinner and breakfast in the restaurant: the food was OK but the service was very long. As example, for the breakfast, as there is not buffet, you have to order. It has taken more than 15 min to have a plate of fruit. If you are traveling for business, the hotel is not very well placed as is far from the airport and far from the downtown.

I’m sorry that the service in ZuZu was not fast enough for you. You are correct, we do not offer a buffet; we prefer to cook items fresh to order. While the hotel is not right next to Sky Harbor Airport, it is fifteen or twenty minutes by cab, which is not very long compared to many other hotels in the Valley. The hotel is at the western end of Downtown Scottsdale, easy walking distance from many shops and restaurants. If you are referring to Downtown Phoenix, that is about twenty-five minutes away. We appreciate your feedback.

I have stayed here for several business trips and would recommend it for play as well. You can walk to multiple bars/restaurants and old town shopping. The pools are great (as is the pool bar). Everything is retro-chic.

As a local "Zonie" summer is the time to take advantage of great discounts. I took advantage of the Valley Ho spa discounts and spent the early morning at the spa. The decor is fun and the service is excellent. My 90 minute massage was one of the best I've had in the last couple of years. From there I went to the pool. I think the pool service was excellent in every way, and although I didn't get a cabana, I plan to in the future. I know the hotel has great music/pool parties and I look forward to participating in those.
