would not stay here again

The location is great - close to shopping and dining. Rooms were okay - but very noisy - there was a load beeping outside that went on all night. The heater wasn't working and we were here in the winter and it was cold at night. We called the front desk but no results. If you stay at this hotel, be sure you get a room that faces the Scottsdale airport and not the west parking lot.

Ok hotel

Location was out of the way, but hotel was nice. Very few amenities with food, drinks, etc. Breakfast was good. Not a great place to go walking at night.

Quick Visit

Hotel is nicely renovated and very clean. It is next to a small airport, so noise can be an issue during flight times.

Convenient Location

Easy to fly into KSDL and use Landmark Aviation and walk down the street a few minutes to the hotel. Ten minute walk to Kierland Commons, which has some great restaurants. Room was nice but toilet area is really small. Would stay again.

Nice start, Details lacking

Everything was clean and the beds were comfortable. There was virtually no noise from outside-it's in a quite area and off the main street. The details: someone"s commode and shower were incredibly loud (I suspect the room above me). There was no coffee left packet in the room for my second day, I was able to get one from the desk. The internet connection was slow. On their computer, so slow I couldn't download a PDF file, it timed out. (granted, it was 4.9 mb). The airport wasn't very busy, but the jets were loud enough to bother a sensitive sleeper trying to sleep in. Overall, I think yo should be able to do better for the money-then again, this is Scottsdale.

Spring training getaway

Perfect for our spring training getaway! Just far enough away from the crowds, and an easy 20 minute drive to Scottsdale stadium. Staff was very accommodating and friendly!
