Small quarter room looks clean at first glance. However, bathroom smells awful - urine odor. Room has no sound barrier - noisy atmosphere! It is in good location - nearby many restaurants and stores.

Contemporary Hotel Showing Wear and Tear

4 out of 5
by from Inverness, IL
Posted Feb 17, 2017
Pros: Contemporary vibe and great location to Scottsdale Old Town.
Cons: Housekeeping needs to do better.
Location: Walking distance to Old Town
Pleasant stay, contemporary hotel, great location but hotel showing its wear and tear. Worn elevator and walk ways, sun-bleached patio furniture, loose in room towel racks and rickety sliding door blemish an otherwise comfortable room. Great bed linens and comfortable bed, but hotel showing its wear considering it has been updated. In-room drink coasters seemed soiled by previous guests, light fixture cords dusty. Great location and friendly staff. Spa was OK, not great. Small spa space and noisy ventilation system disturbs what should be a tranquil experience.

I stayed at the hotel while getting a procedure done. The hotel was fine, but I could hear the guy in the room next to me. Food was way better than expected.

Unfortunately the hotel is in the middle of renovations so it is quite noisy. We were hoping to have a relaxing day around the pool but decided to go elsewhere

It is a really nice hotel, very colorful. There was a party going on and they are renovating a whole wing, therefore the conditions were not ideal.

Pros: Not sure......it was alittle too contemporary for me with some weird decorating ie....curtains around tv screen....sorry I did not get this décor!
Cons: Resort fees should be waived during renovation time. Should have advertised your nightly restaurant events more with clientele staying at the hotel!
Location: Was fun to walk to town stores within a block...would not go alone ......Town Walking Tours might be an idea!
Presently under renovations. Some of the décor needs explanation.........
