“A truly five-star experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2012

Wow! The Fairmont Scottsdale Princess really delivered. The "Gold" suite units really are a step above – even has its own "club room" where we could enjoy snacks and hot drinks...keep those yummy cookies away from me. We really appreciated having our own breakfast buffet in there too – with specialty coffees, and uncrowded facilities – even concierge and checkout services.

We enjoyed his and hers facials...90 minutes of pure bliss at the Willow Spring Spa, and lolled around the roof top pool.

Cocktails and pulled pork sliders at Bourbon Steak were delicious, but almost too much, before supper at La Hacienda.

Excellent meal at La Hacienda, but we were almost done in by the fresh, made-at-the-table guacamole and two baskets of tortilla chips. The shredded beef short rib enchilads were really tasty, and my wife's chicken mole was awesome with its dark, spicy sauce,

Room Tip: Get the Gold suites - well worth the extra expense.

My wife, 16 yo son, 13 yo daughter, and I stayed at the Sottsdale Fairmont Princess and checked out after the first night (we had a 3 night reservation). Although the room was nice, the place was very "sterile" and could have easily been located anywhere in the US. There were lots of people there from a tour group as well as many conventioners. As we were on an "Arizona" vacation and spent 3 nights in Sedona and were about to spend 3 nights in Scottsdale, this place just didn't cut it. We found another hotel about 30 minutes away close to the mountains that was exactly what we were looking for (and ending up having an amazing time!).

If you're on a convention or have small kids or are a golfer AND don't care too much for experiencing the feel of Arizona, then maybe this place is for you.

I enjoyed my stay at the Fairmont, but I was disappointed that there was no breakfast or brunch. The Bar music was very loud and did not stop until 1:00 in the morning.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2012

Reserved a room through an online website and it was still overpriced. Positives included good location in the middle of Scottsdale and easily accessible to the freeway and airports, large resort grounds, multiple pools with a lazy river, nice bathroom, free parking, good service. Negatives included added costs for many things including internet, the resort seemed crowded with many convention goers, the room was fairly small, and the experience was just not that luxurious--lacking many nice amenities and extras. The food at the pool was mediocre and rivaled amusement park food with resort prices, though the mixed drinks were pretty good. Overall I would recommend this hotel if you are on a business trip or maybe if you like golf, but not for me.
