Great Staycation

We had a great time a the hotel. We enjoyed the fantastic restaurant downstairs, Gallo Blanco, with their great food. The Views and colors of the hotel were nice. The retro modern look for the hotel make it stand out for sure and the pool area is awesome. I would stay here again.

The good ole days

Stay at the Clarendon quite often. Slowly seen the change over the years. Some for the better some for the worse. Hotel overall is a rad experience. Right in central Phx tons of stuff to do. I've had issues with room cleanliness quite a few times but they always make right. One thing that drives me nuts is on Sunday pool is open to public. So if you're staying there and want a nice pool experience forget about it. Over run with locals. Gallo Blanco is always hoping so that's a plus. All in all good spot. Worth checking out.

Fun night away from home

We stayed for one night, and took advantage of having great food right downstairs at Gallo Blanco, and drinks on the roof. Super clean, spacious room; unlimited snacks from the front desk; free bikes for tooling around downtown. The Clarendon is a great get away, even though I live in town. Perfect!

not happy

My sister- in- law and brother-in- law were traveling with us. The doors to both our rooms did not latch properly and we also noticed another door the same. Consequently someone entered my sister- in- law's room, rifled her suitcase and stole $2000. The manager was singularly unhelpful, did not provide her with the information as to who entered her room as seen on the cameras the allegedly had in the halls. They offered her no recompense for her loss other than waiving room fees. All over this was very disheartening experience. I have never used X for a hotel and never will again. I have always used X for my plan tickets and will not be doing that again either.

Love this hotel for it great midtown location and for its staff. The staff is always very accommodating and willing to assist me with whatever I need. Having Gallo Blanco on-site is another great perk!

Great First Impression

For a first time domestic traveler, I was in awe of their facility. I am a food person, so it is good that there's a restaurant adjacent to the hotel. A bit on the pricey side, but totally worth every dollars. I recommend their shrimp ceviche and shrimp taco.

Our new favorite spot

We live about 100 miles from Phoenix and have season tickets to the Diamondbacks. We had stayed at several different hotels when we went to the games and then stumbled across the Clarendon Hotel. Now we stay there every time. The hotel has a wonderful friendly, comfortable atmosphere, large rooms with lots of extra touches, super friendly, efficient staff and a lovely pool area. The restaurant has fabulous food at reasonable prices. We highly recommend this hotel.
