"Resort" Getaway on a budget
Posted Nov 14, 2016
We chose to stay at the Gainey suites to give us a few days to relax after we flew in to PHX. We were not disappointed. The room was very comfortable, and nicely decorated in a contemporary, sleek way- but not too sterile- It felt like a chic little apartment.
The kitchen are proved helpful, even if just for storing/reheating leftovers. The pool and spa in the main courtyard was a great way to spend our afternoon.
The breakfast was great! Plenty of good food, with a rotating menu so you don't have to eat the same thing every day- plus you can sit out on the patio and have breakfast with the birds. The same goes for the "reception" in the evening. Some of the food was good enough to basically take over for dinner.
The Gainey Suites building is located in a fairly central area. We found zipping around to shops, restaurants, and local activities a breeze.
The fitness center is a bit sparse, but they have a partnership with a local gym to provide other options, and plenty of running routes to help you out.
While it's not quite the same as many of the "resorts" in the area, it offers many of the same amenities, with a much more wallet friendly price point.
