Great Experience

This resort is beautiful! The rooms are a bit confusing to navigate to since some rooms are accessible through one elevator on the same floor and others have to be accessed on a different elevator/side of the hotel. The rooms are large and have a chaise couch, table with a chair, refrigerator, smart TV, tub separate from the shower, ironing board, blow dryer, robes, shampoo, conditioner, bodywash, Q Tips, cotton swabs, tissue, and lotion. The property has a small gift shop that has essentials and other things, there is a video game room, Fed Ex store, Desert Botanical Garden and plenty more! I loved how friendly and kind the staff was. I hope to stay here again soon!

JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge a fabulous, welcoming, relaxing, well managed Marriott Resort

RecognizeExcellence (Boston, Massachusetts) on Sep 23, 2023

We visited the JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge in what seems like a non-traditional time of the year to visit Phoenix, summer, and discovered a hotel/resort that was lively, hopping, and a fabulous reprieve from daily living. The staff of the JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge are wonderful; there are many career-Marriott employees; they are welcoming, professional, and efficient. Our room, and the resort, are immaculate, and well maintained. We enjoyed several excellent meals in three different restaurants at the resort. We missed the opportunity to try to the food and beverage at the restaurant at the spa, as our timing was never right. This year, the JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge opened their water park, water slides, and upgraded lazy river. These new amenities (and the fact that we were at the resort in the summer, when school is on recess) brought out many families with children, which were a pleasure to see, and be around. Marriott seems to have beefed up their staff supervision at the water park, and the staff (very young) seemed attentive, welcoming, and efficient. There is a major construction project underway around the pools, with a large area around the pools (pleural) deck cordoned off; I'm not quite sure what Marriott is up to at the pools/pool deck, it seems, further enhancements. We enjoyed several visits to the spa, and a very personal, welcoming, attentive staff, there. The Fitness Center is very well equipped, and immaculate. If you go to the spa, make a point of visiting "J.W.'s Garden." In summary, granted, summer seemed like a non-traditional time of year to visit Phoenix. Despite a long run of very hot weather, in Phoenix, we enjoyed a fabulous vacation at the JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge.
