I was in Phoenix for business and booked in for 2 nights midweek. I chose the Hotel Valley Ho because it had good reviews, and, being in the design business, I liked the idea that they had stayed true to the original design when they restored and renovated. I was upgraded to a poolside King room, which was a decison that was not thought through by the staff...
The first night was pleasant even though the room service meal was just OK.
The second night of my stay, I returned after 12 hours of business calls in 103 degree heat - looking forward to sitting outside my room by the pool - to find the pool had been covered for a raucous Hooters competiton complete with loudspeakers and loud music...and it was right outside my window. The heightened noise level was compounded by foul expressions of the guests and the entrant's companions. The experience was not to the taste of a tired business woman and I found it all quite dreadful.
Lucklily the hotel had a sister hotel they could transfer me to as there were no rooms available at the Ho away from the noise. The front desk staff was accommodating and the bellman who drove me over was gracious, which somewhat calmed the irritation of the inconvenience to an exhausted guest.
