I was here for an event last weekend, and I regret staying at the property. The property is beautiful, and delivers on its promises. The rooms - not so much. It may be a "resort" but it is still a Marriott. Here are the issues I encountered: We had the kid with us so we got a double room. Two queens? No, the cheap hotel offers two doubles, so my husband and I had to squeeze into the same one. Of course they overbooked the hotel...members of our party had their rooms given away. So we couldn't fix that.
To make up for the skimping, they have a six inch duvet on each bed. We're talking Tempe / Phoenix Arizona folks.. Who on earth needs a huge duvet in Tempe Arizona? We were each up at least once during the nights we stayed, drenched in sweat - we are not night sweat people - trying to get the A/C to 'kick' on. It's a duvet so it's all six inches of duvet - or nothing. Even when it's in the 70s out.
Finally, the bathrobes and towels: One bathroom in our room, and the towels were threadbare nightmares. Our friends had a suite. The room was ugly: gray and orange with angular designs and furniture, the room looked like an old Pan Am lounge with a bed with a huge duvet. As if that was going to solve everyone's problems.
Again, the property is beautiful. But if you actually want to ever sleep rather than just gaze at the skyline and declare yourself over a six inch duvet, miss this joint. Save your money and stay at the Hampton Inn just around the corner. The Hampton Inn chain has remodeled and its room are amazing.
