Everything else is good except for the air conditioner, which is super load. I have to turn it off at night in order to fall sleep.

Paper thin walls! That’s my only complaint. Could hear one neighbor breathing and could hear my other neighbor rustling papers and coughing. It was as if we were all in the same room. Other than the hotel needing a little TLC, it’s super cute in terms of theming and design. The check in staff was fantastic as was the gal running the bar at breakfast.

It is a good place to stay prior to flying out of Phoenix. No big frills, but the staff is great and the rooms work well for the traveling professional.

Our bathroom was a bit missed in places when cleaned the last time- someone else’s hair was on the sink and there was a smudge on the door that I cleaned. The shower gel was empty and the shower seemed also missed in cleaning. Otherwise- it was good.
