Great location right on Scottsdale Road - a little north of Old Town. We had a car which made travel to and from town very easy. The lobby area is large and this is clearly a conference hotel. (We attended a conference here.) The gift shop had a lot of sweatshirts and bags in addition to the standard magazines, toiletries and snacks - and a very friendly clerk.
The grounds were extensive and quite lovely. Two swimming pools and lots of green park like spaces with grass. The rooms all had balconies overlooking the parks, the swimming pools and a few unfortunate rooms may have faced the parking lot.
The hotel is only 2 stories high and there is parking on all 4 sides which means that you can park near your room. It can be a little confusing with the twists and turns of the property and room numbering, but we got the hang of it after the first day.
The room itself was large with nice amenties like toiletries from England, a safe, wine glasses and a sink in the bedroom over the minibar. Although the room had been renovated and had fairly new furniture with 2 cool chairs, it was a clearly an older property that wouldn't compare with a lot of the grand hotels in the area.
The front desk at night was staffed by college students who didn't know much about the area restaurants. They were friendly and gave us a list of written recommendations that had been prepared, but weren't familiar with any of them.
Some of our fellow conference attendees spent a lot of time at the lobby bar and loved the bartenders.
We've traveled a lot and while we wouldn't have picked this property, it was perfectly fine for a short stay.
