Windham Pridgen

Excellent property with a lot of options Our bungalow was right next to the main pool, which was great We also spent a lot of time at the spa pool, a bit more relaxed and often not very crowded

Such nice people there SpecificallyScott and Mark, two of the bellhops They were ready to take us wherever we needed and did so with great conversation and attitudes Both of them are exceptional ambassadors of the Andaz We had a blast, thanks to the Andaz for a wonderful experience

Simone Collins

Very comfortable resort with a truly fantastic restaurant Loads of spots to sit and relax with friends Super friendly and accommodating staff

Comfortable rooms that feel kind of like cabins at camp, but desert chic edition Fantastic, well-designed showers The only thing that could be better is the gym Why design a gym in the desert to be open air?!?

Kelley Inman

Great location, walking distance to restaurants and a short drive to old town, shopping or Talking Stick Get the prickly pear lemonade at check in 😉 it’s delicious and they’ll add a little vodka if you’d like The main pool is a fun

Great atmosphere with music, cold drinks and tall palm trees The spa pool (18 and older) is quiet and peaceful The fire pits and lights through out the property are an excellent touch A beautiful resort we will definitely be back

Cristal Flores

I had a horrible experience at this hotel, it was a beautiful resort but front desk night agent was not very friendly and greeted us very rudely If it wasn’t for everything else being sold out I would have rather stayed in my car I did not feel welcome at all

I did meet an amazing housekeeping worker she was more helpful than the front desk agent Do better

Jessie Lynn

The check-in process was smooth until I got to my room The key didn’t work and the light would only turn red I went back down with my luggage to have the issue resolved

No big deal, mistakes happen They moved me to a different room, so back up I went The room looked clean and presentableI picked this hotel because on the website it said there was a restaurant and room service However, when I called down to ask about ordering a dinner, they said that room service was only for breakfast and that I’d have to come down to the pool bar for food The menu was very, very small They did have gluten free bread though I ended up ordering their burger and was asked how I like it I said “medium” The burger came back and the poor thing really can only do well done- it was the same patty that you get in a school lunch or in a hospital Definitely not what I was expecting from a Hilton resort, and not for the price that they chargedThe room was ok, however, I must have been placed right under the AC or something (on the 3rd floor) because every time it turned on, it was a very loud creaking noise that would startle me awake about every hour I even tried putting ocean waves on my phone to drown out the creaks, but they were too loud I was disappointed that they didn’t leave water in the rooms too They said that water was available as self-serve behind the check in counterThe next day I attempted their breakfast which didn’t have much improvement from the burger So for dinner, I went and got takeout but got up to my room to find that I needed a fork I called down to the front desk to ask if they had any extra forks She said that they did I asked if I needed to come down to get it She said, “yes, because that would be considered room service and we only do room service for breakfast” Wow! I was in complete shock!I was under the impression that checkout was at 11am However, I had housekeeping knocking on my door during the 9:00 hour ready to start cleaning Definitely the cherry on top to my stay I hate to leave a poor review, but with so many things that just don’t match the expense and reputation of a Hilton Resort in the high-end city of Scottsdale, this was just not okay

Brittany Webber

This Hilton is more like a 3-star hotel I was only here for one night before my flight from Phoenix Upon arrival, the staff that checked me in were great

Very friendly I went to relax by the pool after check in It was late in the day (after 5pm) and there weren’t many people there The pool area was trashed with leftover food, plates etc all over the lounge chairs So bad to the point that birds were all over the place scrounging for food It was incredibly unpleasant Hotel was also noisy at night I was woken up by noisy guests walking the hallways in the middle of the night Bathroom was also not throughly cleaned Overall, this is good if you are just passing through or staying for the night, but I wish I would’ve stayed at one of the nicer “real” resorts up the road

Feedback From Real Customers


The McCormick Scottsdale was recommended by our family living in Scottsdale The hotel has quite a lot of amenities, which we weren’t able to enjoy However, we really enjoyed using the amenities that we were interested in using, during our stay

We had a very busy schedule that our family members had planned for us that we were gone for most of our eight days stay at the hotelThey have a very friendly, and great supporting staff, that lets you know that you are welcome and they show their appreciation by letting you know that they are glad that you are staying there We would like very much to compliment, and thank, the housekeeping staff that were assigned to our room The young ladies that my wife and I met while leaving for the day to be with our family, were so friendly and accommodating whenever we requested their services to tidy up our room and to exchange our bath linens We will definitely return to stay there when we visit with our family again

Gustavo Vegas

The hotel is well located and has many amenities Has a decent restaurant in the grounds, with tasty foodThe staff were helpful and greeted us with a smile

Now, the hotel needs a makeover, it is very dated Our room has a musky smell, and one of the beds squeaked as one sat on itOverall, I would come back in the future, but a renovation would make it more attractive than other hotels/ resorts in the area

Penny Liddell

My husband and I stayed at the property for to celebrate my 10 year wedding anniversary The check-in staff was very professional, very polite, and helpful The room was clean and comfortable as we received an upgrade to a king suite from a double queen room

We did not use any of the other amenities available to us such as the pool, restaurant or spa area I was impressed that the pool is available to guests until 10PM My only complaint is the resort fee charged at check-out even though I prepaid for it in the app I reserved the room under It was eventually taken off by a manager, but I should not have been charged in the first placeThey could also use another elevator on the other side of the hallway, as we had to walk down some pretty long halls to get to our room Otherwise, a great experience and I would certainly recommend to family and friends

We stayed here with a group of friends for a birthday party and had a GREAT time! The hotel is really unique, rooms were super clean with amenities such as a fridge and Keurig, AC worked fabulous, great views, spectacular location, and the staff knocked it out of the park for us All of our rooms were ready early which was the icing on the cake One of our cabanas that we had booked back in February was sold to another guest, but the manager’s handling of it was top notch–she got us squared away with extra shaded seating and it worked out perfect

The pool bar area seemed a bit understaffed but it also appeared the bartender wanted to work the area alone, and she did amazing with so many people to serve I wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again Thank you all for making our special day so memorable!


The location of the hotel and spaciousness of the accommodations were great Nice gym and pool area too I did have an issue at one point with charges after my stay, and it did get resolved

The new manager at The Camby reached out, showed that he cared, and took care of the situation I really appreciated the concern that he showed A positive experience for me in the end I look forward to a return someday

George Lass

There are many things that this hotel needs to do to live up to it’s claim to be a “Luxury Resort” 4 star hotel Starting with an in-room folder listing things like hotel amenities, restaurant hours and nearby attractions? Perhaps coffee service set up in the lobby for early risers? Sure they have Keuregs in the room if you are into powdered creamer and lid less and very small paper cups that go cold after 5 minutes Breakfast time at the restaurant also left something to be desired

With less that half the tables occupied, there was only 1 clean table in the place which we took 10 minutes later another couple had to bus a table before dining About 15 minutes after placing our orders the waitress came by to “confirm” our orders and got everything wrong The room was adequate but the bathroom was also lacking There was barely enough room to hang up one set of wet towels Some reviews have claimed to have no hot water We did but we had to run the sink and shower both for nearly 10 minutes before the water was hot enough to shower Not very ecologically friendly especially in the middle of the desert One bright spot was the hotel staff They were very friendly and eager to serve

Remember to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙoʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking a resort This site will compare hundreds of booking websites and usually will have prices much cheaper compared to others! Thank me later! This place is one of the best in this area

I’ve been coming here for years If you choose this place you will love it I’m sure!Great hotel! I was there for a conference and it was gorgeous The deck in the room was amazing! The bell staff was extremely knowledgeable, especially Hugh, and went out of their way to help us (we were at a conference) All of the bar and wait staff did as well We look forward to staying here again!

Kimberly Herron

This was our first visit to the Gainey Ranch We arrived very late one evening and the lighting on the property was terrible It was confusing to figure out where the main entrance & parking was

After a long day of traveling it was an added annoyance Upon arrival, we checked in easily, front desk staff was welcoming We got to our room and again lighting was terrible Granted it’s the desert but all of the browns, golds & yellow decor mixed with poor lighting made for a depressing vibeThe exterior views were absolutely spectacular and the pools are great The service at the pool was also spectacular There were a bunch of games for the kids to play pool side so that helped keep the kids entertained!The website made it appear that more of the restaurants were open than were truly open, so that was frustrating Basically there is one restaurant open inside and then you have food/drink service at the pool where they will deliver food to your chair There is a shopping center near by with great restaurants that you could even walk to if you wanted toOverall, location was amazing, but it was an expensive stay and not worth it With the exception of the pool staff, I didn’t think the staff was all that friendly It was fun to visit once, but I wouldn’t make it a destination place to vacation again, unless we had another reason to be there

Rodney Ibrahim

Recently stayed here for a business meeting and to play some golf A great resort that checked all the boxes for what you need Great location, well kept hotel, and a decent bar scene made this a place I would come back too

Rooms were a good size, with ample sized bathrooms with good water pressure Bed was big a fluffy (although a little too soft for me) Good wifi, and a nice pool round it offAll in all a great place Go with confidence

Online this hotel looks decent, but when you arrive it is very outdated and run down Plus, the parking is very limited The gentleman who checked us in was very kind, but for whatever reason my room key wasn’t functioning properly and I had to get it reset twice, which was such an inconvenience

As for the room, it’s pretty neat that it’s a suite but it only has two double beds, vice queens, which to me are way too small and pointless Then the sofa bed was the absolute worst I’ve ever experienced It was all lumpy and all the springs were practically popping out What an embarrassment for this hotel That mattress needs to be throw out immediately! As for the bathroom, the door is a sliding one that does not allow any privacy and it doesn’t even lock On a positive note, the breakfast is great and the movie night for the kids is a splendid idea

Michelle Wendt

I’m a loyal Hilton customer and to say I had a horrible experience at the Scottsdale property actually breaks my heart This motel claims to be a resort, but it is so far beyond disrepair there are no words Upon walking into the lobby, you’ll be immersed in the most sickly sweet and pungent air freshener you’ll ever experience

My room was on the third floor and I got stuck in greenhouse style elevators twice The stairs are a much safer and more reliable route! The hotel is very outdated in decor My room smelled extremely musty, likely because the toilet was leaking water 24/7, enough to make the bathroom and hallway floor soaked with moldy puddles The walls and ceiling were covered in dust, hair, and mildew Housekeeping was non-existent even after making a written request to replace the towels I used to soak up the water and fix the toilet I should have checked out immediately after checking in, but I thought I could get through a 2 night stay I won’t make that mistake again

Steve Joerger

The hotel is a little older but gives it more of an eclectic feel It is a short 5-minute drive or a 20-minute walk to Old Town The Scottsdale Airport is about a 15-minute drive

The breakfast buffet is one that would compare to a restaurant The nightly happy hour was very nice too with open bar and light snacksNote they do charge a $25 resort feeThe staff was kind and got me checked in quickly The room was a large two room suite The first room had a pullout couch, table, wet bar and tv The second room was the bedroom that was very big The bed was comfortable as were the linens Both rooms were clean as was the bathroom that had a shower tub comboOther Amenities:- Free WIFI- Mini fridge and microwave- Wet bar- Large outdoor pool and spa- Fitness Room- Laundry room- Free bicycle rental- Nightly happy hour with open bar- Hot breakfast (Eggs, sausage, waffles, pancakes, fresh fruit, oatmeal and cereals)

Pros: Perfect view of Camelback Mountain and an easy 15 minute walk to the mountain if you choose to hike The grounds are nice and staff is pleasant Poolside service is convenient

Front desk was very responsive to requests Cons: The room decor is dark and seems a little dated The ceiling fan on the balcony doesn’t seem to be stable and shakes as if it may fall down Several pool towels had stains and were worn out, needed to be tossed We had a few tiny black bugs in the bathroom/room, not sure what they were Wish there was evening entertainment and a better music selection at the pool We didn’t eat much at the resort, not a diverse selection of food The food we did eat was good quality though

Jenna Lyons

Had a wonderful 3 days of relaxation and pampering at the Scottsdale Omni hotel and spa The spa area was wonderful, treatments all done professionally and with friendly vibes The food was delicious at all of the restaurants

There were 3 weddings in the time we stayed there and while it was clear there were extra guests around, in general there were no major interruptions to our stay from the services / receptions, aside from one which took over the ‘adults only’ pool area for half of an afternoon As we had reserved a room next to the adults only pool, it did mean being forced to listen to the DJ and the party for a few hours Would have been nice to be informed by the hotel of this ahead of time so plans could be adjusted, if needed Fortunately, the music was good but I could see this not being good for everyone Everyone was very friendly, professional and helpful Would recommend staying here Things were pricy but I feel that is to be expected at a luxury resort in general

Debra Baker

My experience at the Omni was awesome My daughter and I enjoyed the top terrace under the huge umbrella While sipping on our amazing drinks, and fruit tray looking out over the terrace

The views of palm trees and mountains were breathe taking I will always remember this place and visit again on my next vacation Loved this Resort!!

We had the pleasure of staying at the Hermosa Inn this past weekend for the first time The staff was friendly and accommodating The service was top notch

There were a few minor issues with our room that we notified the front desk of They promptly had maintenance to our room to fix the issues The lady at the front desk was amazing There was an issue she felt couldn’t be resolved and she offered to upgrade us to another roomThe grounds were quiet, well kept and beautiful All the staff (front desk, cleaning, maintenance, restaurant staff) were quick to care for our needs and provided quality service We will definitely recommend them and enjoyed our time there and hope to return soon

Antonia Youngwirth

The atmosphere is amazing We sat outside and the flowers were stunning 2 of the three meals were very good

However, my Reuben Sandwich was a bust I asked for it without the Thousand Island dressing It was delivered with the dressing on it I sent it back and they actually only took off the bread that had the dressing on it Barely toasted that side and the meat and cheese they added to it was cold and the cheese not melted I told them about it and said I will just take it home For such a highly rated restaurant, that was a very suprising thing to happen Mimosa was good although the initial drink order took over 25 minutes to arrive Good thing for the lovely atmosphere Service was good, it was not their fault about the food or the slow drink prepNot sure if I will rush back to Lon’s

Jamilla Davis

Stayed 2 nights in June 2022 The service is excellent I wanted to highlight Carlos, the pool guy

He was so nice and welcoming The mango popsicles — such a nice touch! The grounds are a desert paradise, quiet and secluded The room is charming and cozy Didn’t get to try the restaurant and spa But will definitely try them when we come back

When I stayed at this property they had the most amazing beds and pillows! I actually purchased the same type of bed Best decision of my life I took a picture of the pillow tag but was unable to match the pillow with the merchant

They needed more info I called Gainey and spoke to an amazingly awesome gentlemen name Josh He was so pleasant, helpful and super knowledgeable He was able to provide me with what I needed Thank you Josh for the best customer service experience!

I enjoyed our stay The pool area was very nice, the other guests were super friendlyThe room was clean, modern and decorated well but the carpeting will need cleaning or updating soon

This is a family oriented location so if children bother you, head elsewhere

Jayneee Smith

We rented a 2 bedroom suite, 2 bath Nice amenities in bathrooms Living area was smaller than other resorts we frequent

Kitchen was not fully stocked and no stove Range was low-end, but did the job Needed to clean the toaster before using as there was debris inside making it smoke and we didn’t want the smoke detector going off Great complimentary breakfast and 5 PM happy hour with food Very social with plenty of seating areas around the pool, water falls, under the trees The outdoor area made up for any issues within our suites Very relaxing stay

Ricky Joshi

Beautiful boutique hotel located in a great part of Scottsdale Wonderful service and overall vibe The staff was exceptional and there were so many nice touches (text access to the front desk, champagne at check in, etc)

The breakfast was one of the best I’ve had at any Hyatt property (I’m a globalist so I’ve had my fair share!) The grounds were well kept and unique The only knock against the resort is that it is a little older so one has to accept that the rooms and buildings have an older feel (still very clean) I embraced that as part of its old world charm

Tiffany Griffin

We had our wedding there this past weekend and it was just amazing!! The staff and the service really just did an amazing job One little mix up with the room but they resolved that as fast as they could and made the whole weekend and wedding experience just top notch The guests told me as well that if you needed something they were on top of it

We were just SO impressed with everything! Service, Staff, Food, Grounds, Room If your thinking of getting married, this is the place to be! 5++++ Stars THANK YOU Royal Palms for a FABULOUS Weekend!!

Zoe Polk

We had a nice long weekend at the Royal Palms, however I don’t think the property really competes with the other 5 star resorts in the area Our room felt a bit dated and dingy, I was particularly unimpressed with the bed and bedding The grounds are beautiful, I love the natural landscape in AZ

The pool area is very small, and the chairs easily fill up Not the right resort if you are interested in hanging by the pool for a good portion of your vacation We asked the front desk for where to go on a walk, and they provided us with directions with a nice loop around the neighborhood – but it did require half a mile on a busy road with no side walk

I have been staying here for a long time If you decide to stay here you for sure will love it I’m sure!Visited the Westin Kierland today to spend the day at the pool and celebrate a birthday WOW! The accommodations and service could not have been better We were first greeted at the front of the pool by Savannah, who was lovely and showed us around After we settled in, the manager Matt stopped by and was not only helpful, but incredibly delightful and really added to our overall experience Because of how helpful and friendly Matt and the staff were, we will absolutely be back We are so glad we picked the Westin to spend the day at!

Nicole Downs

What a great way to enjoy the fireworks for Fourth of July weekend Spent time with my family friends by the pool and then enjoyed the firework spectacle What a extravagant firework show right there behind the Westin

Had a great view on the balcony What a great family friendly place Everything so clean and nice and fancy Valet was friendly All the people who worked there were so nice and helpful They even upgraded my friend and gave her a VIP voucher

Mary K

Enjoyed a sunny November day at the pool with some girlfriends Everything was clean and the pools were refreshing The staff was friendly and attentive

The lazy river was wonderful, especially with a crafted cocktail in hand The price was decent and we were able to use the facilities to shower and get ready for our dinner dates afterwards Would go back for sure ❤️

Very nice hotel even though it’s small Everything is pretty and the bartender knows how to make drinks We didn’t order food so I don’t know how it is

Simple but good gym Rooms are just as good as the rest if the hotel Only con is that it’s not in a very good area Not that it’s dangerous or anything It’s just that there’s nothing really to do around there Other than that, I would definately stay again there

We had the best stay here! The rooms, lobby, pool, and even the elevators were spotless I loved the pool vibe and the service is awesome The menu and drinks were super good too and all of the staff was so friendly

I loved hanging at the rooftop during sunset, there a lot of comfortable seat options The area is the best too… plenty of things to walk to and it’s so close to the airport Parking was $15/night

David Sherman

Very clean trendy rooms, friendly staff, and excellent brunch The scenery is amazing Water is available everywhere

The rooftop pool had a great vibe Location is great everything you could need is in walking distance I was on business and my client even expressed how nice the hotel was Keep up the good work Canopy If you are thinking of booking do it! Take my word! My favorite amenity was the transfer room Our flight got delayed and they allowed us to use their lockers for our belongings and told us everything In the hotel was available to us even after check out time Excellent customer service If I’m ever in Scottsdale this is where I’ll be staying at no question!

I’d skip this oneThe only great thing about this place is the valet service that went out of their way to help us as it was pouring down rain during monsoon when we arrived They continued to be the bright spot of the entire stay here

The staff is fine but not friendly Every time we asked where something was on the property we got vague directions and couldn’t find it We weren’t offered a bottle of water or anything that we typically get when we stay with HiltonThe rooms are super clean but old There is a great vanity set up for getting ready but no outlets I’m not sure if the rooms have A/C or swamp coolers but the rooms were hot and muggy- again it’s monsoon season right now, but an A/C doesn’t typically cause that during this time of yearWhen we reserved the room the price said $180 a night with taxes and resort fees but we were charged $211It just overall is a tired and disappointing experience We have stayed at many Hilton’s for much less money and had a better experience I’d skip this one and book elsewhere in Scottsdale

Kenneth Belisle

My daughter and I stayed at the resort for a long weekend over the 4th of July The resort itself is so pretty, and we really enjoyed walking around the property and seeing the cacti, palm trees, and flowers I loved the bar at the pool-they had great drinks for adults and ice cream for kids

Our favorite meal was breakfast, and they also had great food for lunch and dinner as well The pool area was so nice, and the water was warm, and we spent many hours lounging and swimming! I definitely recommend this resort! We can’t wait to go back

Nicole Fraser

We were excellently treated by every member of the staff who were friendly and engaging The restaurant was great with a nice variety on the menu and well prepared dishes The rooms were clean and, with the sole exception of the air conditioning units, quiet

The lake made for a lovely contrast to the desert dry with birds and greenery Absolutely recommend

I stayed three nights during a fraternity conference – everything with the property was spectacular The rooms were spread out, allowing for privacy and the facilities were beautifulMy favorite part, was the service

Guests were greeted with friendly staff and everyone from the front desk, to the servers, to the bartenders, to the groundskeepers were consistently friendly and working to ensure an excellent staySpecifically, Rita in the restaurant worked hard every morning to be certain that everyone coming and going before meetings had a relaxing meal and was so friendly while running aroundWhile I didn’t get to spend as much time by the pool as I hoped, the morning I did lay by the pool I had the opportunity to chat with Daniel – he was so nice asking about my work and was so excited to tell me about the work he does When I saw him later that day, he greeted me by name and asked how my meetings were goingIf I owned a hotel, I would work hard to steal these two all-stars and hire them on my staff

Summer Hughes

Outstanding stay Not only were our accommodations perfectly taken care of, but the entire resort caters to any type of traveler This is a space I would stay with family, friends, for business or pleasure

I loved that everything on site opened early and stayed open really late, so you were never at a loss for coffee or a glass of wine During our stay, there was exclusive music every evening on the patio It was quiet enough to make sleep easy close by, but also created the PERFECT ambiance for an evening dinner

I would love to give more than 5 stars This was my first time in Arizona, my trip isn’t over yet however I cannot begin to describe the absolute beauty, peaceful, serenity of the entire resort Besides it being absolute paradise, my favorite part is the amazing staff, from staff at the pool, the restaurant, spa, boutique, housekeeping, room service

Each and every single employee that works here makes each day better, they’re so friendly and nice and extremely knowledgeable about the best places around the resort but honestly once you’re here, you won’t want to leave I travel a lot and have stayed at so many places but no place have I been where the staff is as kind, sweet, and personable The service is beyond impeccable I need to add more photos but it’s hard to take your eyes away from the natural beauty that is all around The calamari I got last night from room service is honestly the best calamari I have ever had The rooms are enormous, the beds are so comfortable, I really can’t say just how perfect it is here Also, anytime you call for anything from water, to ice, to anything, they’re at you’re room before you even know it I absolutely love Sanctuary Camelback, if you’re looking for a place to stay, stop now Book here, you’ll be so happy you did

Our wedding at the sanctuary was absolutely amazing There was nothing that could have been done better The entire team including Robin and Jessica were top notch

The grounds are amazing, and our guests keep telling us that we had the best wedding they’ve ever attended The location is prime for perfect picture taking – and the food was wonderful – and the staff was superbSpeaking of a thoughtful detail – we had a “personal” attendant from the moment we said “i do” until the end of the wedding Once we said our i’-dos we were greeted with champagne and congratulated as a happy couple Then we disappeared for a half hour for photos on the mountain before returning to our party Once we arrived back – there were drinks for just us – and a personal plate of our appetizers for us to enjoy before meeting our guests for happy hour Most married couples – don’t get time to eat or take care of themselves because everyone wants their attention We were just SPOILED by great serviceI also thought the presentation of their offer for the wedding ceremony was very upfront I think we had better confidence in what we were getting versus other wedding venuesThe rooms were amazingThank you Sanctuary for a wonderful wedding – we will likely return often to celebrate special occasions keeping the memory of our special day aliveWith great thanksRichard and Charles

I don’t know why people expect a 6 star experience when staying at an older hotel… after reading all of the reviews I was a bit disappointed before arriving but you’d need to experience it for yourself firsthand Honestly, our experience was great I wasn’t expecting anything above and beyond with an older hotel

The hotel was clean, our room was clean, outdated? Yea but it wasn’t bad Our bathroom door would get stuck and that’s the only negative thing about the room The river ranch was fun, wasn’t too crowded, I can say I would suggest they come up with a different check in process Standing in 100+ degree weather in a long line isn’t the best experience, maybe hand out the wristbands at the front desk? The pools had some broken tiles but overall the pools probably just need to be updated The water wasn’t “murky green” like some of the reviews say… The hole in the wall restaurant was really good and Helen provided amazing service! She deserves to be recognized 🙂 over all, we had a great time and my kids had a blast hanging in the pool all day

Recently I stayed here for two night and to be honest before my trip I was contemplating to change my trip as recent google reviews are somehow horrible, thankfully I didn’t change my reservation and me and my family had great time at this resort Room was nice and comfortable having two TVs which is great for families There is a separate living room with sofa bed

Everything was clean Water park is good, my daughter had lot of fun Hole in the wall is the only restaurant open but we got the table easily and breakfast was decent I would stay here again

Chanel Enslow

Such a disappointing stay I wish I would have read and paid attention to the other reviews before booking There was so many things “out of order” starting from the hotel lobby

During check in, the restroom was locked because the “water wasn’t working” Then the next day, the whole North Pointe building water was shut off for 5 hours due to an issue so we couldn’t shower or use the restroom in our room Reading previous reviews, this isn’t the first time this has happened 3 out of the 4 hot tubs weren’t working, and the one that was working was only lukewarm The washer and dryer were also out of service!Checkout isn’t until 11am, but starting around 10am, the housekeeper knocked or peeped into our room 3-4 times asking if we were leaving that day until we finally left the room at 11amI will say that the water park was decent and the kids enjoyed it It was pretty basic but it did the job The updated suite was also good as we were traveling with a baby and it was nice to be able to shut the door to the bedroom after they went to sleep There are no microwaves in the rooms, which would be nice I’ll stay elsewhere next time

My husband and I stayed here for a 3 year wedding Anniversary trip When we arrived we had been upgraded to the Presidential Suite It was a beautiful room

We had the best time at the pool with drink service Our room was always spot less when we arrived back after it was cleaned The location is perfect for walking down to Old Town, Fashion Square & Night Clubs The aesthetics of this place are SO PERFECT!!

Enrico Dolcecore

This is a 2-3 start hotel at best The price is WAY TOO much for what you get Rooms are dated, and minimal

You really don’t get anything above and beyond for staying here Choose another hotel across the street for half price and you’ll be happier We stayed her 7 years ago, and it was awesome Pools were fun to hang at, but the price was right We felt like we got what we paid for For $500 a night I can stay at a Ritz Carlton

Alex Anzhela

Place is nice Too much party life in this town in general though If you’re traveling with kids, probably good idea to find a more kid friendly hotel/place/atmosphere

Otherwise the resort is very pretty Also the heater/AC unit in the room emitted too much dust so we ended up not turning it on anymore They do have a complimentary shuttle service which we loved
