A nice convention hotel nothing special

gina W (Minnesota) on Feb 02, 2023

Convention hotel. Always loud. Pool under construction had " fake" above ground hot tub that was cold at 91 degrees. Biggest issue was valet. You cannot call down for your car so you must wait. On our final day we waited 30 minutes when told it would be 5 minutes. We watched many others get their cars and approached many staff who didn't seem too interested.

Not worth it on your own dime

sphinx41 (Phoenix, AZ) on Jan 15, 2023

We thought it would be fun to stay at a resort for a couple days when our plans to stay with friends over new year's weekend fell through. We booked through Costco and got something resembling a deal, but still in the neighborhood of $500+ per night for a basic double-queen room. The bathroom was gigantic and there was a small divan that worked for the smaller kid to sleep on, but otherwise not especially interesting, and a long hike from everything. Breakfast was a disaster--only one restaurant and the Starbucks is open, and the restaurant is at half capacity because the outdoors is closed. No one told us to make a reservation, so it was an hour for the expensive buffet or a 35 minute Starbucks line. There were people everywhere, half of the pool/gardens are under construction (resulting in every surface being covered by pool chairs), and there's nowhere to just take a nice outdoor walk before you hit the golf course. If you want a feeling of space or just to enjoy the desert, no luck. On the positive side, the staff was unfailingly positive, our dinner at Roy's was great, and the soundproofing is sufficient we heard not a peep of New Year's madness. When leaving we find out we still owe money because parking--in the desert in the middle of nowhere where nothing else charges for parking--is $23 a night, it's not included, and you can't use the Costco credit to cover it. And then another $19 charge randomly showed up on our card I can't be bothered to fight over. The whole thing left a bad taste in my mouth. It wasn't a good deal even at our discount, and if I were paying full freight for a luxury experience, I would have been considerably disappointed.
