Trying hard to be chic without quality:cold water in shower, no coffee maker, noisy mechanical systems, etc.

Very cool hotel! Pool is unbelievable! Room was huge with comfy beds!

Hotel staff is extremely accommodating. Rooms were clean, great location, comfy beds.

Great spot and great price. Good food around the area.

Good customer service nice clean rooms restaurant and bar are great

I stay regularly at the Clarendon when in Phoenix on business. It is very conveniently located, the amenities are nice, and the staff very helpful and friendly. It is a good value for the price. I recommend it highly.

We were in Phoenix visiting our daughter; we were going to stay one night and we found it to be so nice that we decided to stay an extra night!

My room was on the first floor facing the pool. All day long and up to 10:30 at night, incredibly loud music was playing at the pool. Even with my air conditioning running full blast, I could still hear it. I will never stay here, again.

Booked last minute, great price. Only downside, pool was closed for the next 3 days, and housekeeping missed a pair of someone's underwear in the closet. Aside from that, can't wait to go back

The photos provided on he website or very falsely advertised. Way too overly priced for location and for presentation of the hotel. Definitely was not what we were expecting unfortunately. The staff was very nice and helpful. Just need to be more truthful with the photos. Pretty glamorized. Thank you

come see for yourself, unlimited things to do! dine, happy hour, live bad on the roof, good time to relax in the pool.

Food Awesome, staff went out of their way to ensure everything is perfect for the guest.

I recently spent 2 nights at the clarendon hotel. I was not exactly aware what environment or vibe in the area & hotel, just trusted reviews. I was a little culture shocked walking up to the vertically mirrored facade. The smell of lemongrass is a clean, fresh scent that permeates the lobby. I was told the restaurant, Cafe Tranquilo, has been a more recent addition. It was for sure a highlight. Not just because of the excellent food & artfully crafted drinks, but because of a few people who were amazing there to visit with. Thank you for an unforgettable experience.

The staff was extremely helpful and courteous. They did not hesitate to help in anyway possible and were very polite. The room was clean. I was disappointed because I did not realize the hotel itself was quite old, consequently the room (particularly the bathroom) was not modern. The bathroom was very small, with a small tub. The room was not well lit, no overhead light, only bed lamps and a lamp close to the door, and on the desk. I personally like a bright room; the room was dimly lit. It was too cold to swim, however, the pool looked very clean and was nicely situated in a center courtyard. The hotel restaurant was excellent. Food was excellent and staff very friendly and attentive.

Nice hotel. Old trying to be young. Not a bad effort I will say that I'm use to the best. I live in las vegas

Nice place. Food is ok, they often have "run out" of certain things on the menu: bread one day, bacon the next. Otherwise great stay. Would stay again.

We checked in for the night, hotel is close to PHX so was a great stay.

The hotel is fun w music playing at pool and rooftop. Staff is helpful but gives the impression that your bothering them when calling or going to the desk. Sofa bed was non existent, its simply a sofa full of stains. Tried pulling the top out and the inside piece was missing. Carpet full of stains and very worn looking. However the location is great and breakfast vouchers made it bearable.

We like the hotel, smart design. The rooms seem a little stark in some places, lighting could be better.
