W Scottsdale

Scottsdale, Arizona

The hotel

Radically different to its neighbours, W Scottsdale taps into the lively undercurrent of its trendy Entertainment District setting – with features and bars that make it cool and hot in equal measure. On the city’s ‘IT list’, the difference is discernible as soon as you step inside (just look up and you’ll spy the WET Pool through oversized portholes). Head upstairs and the WET Deck welcomes you with the outdoor pool with underwater lighting and music, overstuffed loungers and private cabanas, and weekend pool parties with live DJs. The party continues downstairs, with the lobby space transformed into an open ‘Living Room’ featuring stylish furniture, live music sessions, and a party atmosphere until the wee hours. And, when bed finally beckons, it’s the hotel’s signature W Bed, in a guestroom with sliding floor-to-ceiling windows and a WHATEVER/WHENEVER® Concierge service.

Our trip started out rocky. We stayed for Labor Day week for a total of 5 days with two rooms. We booked through Marriott Vacations as Gold members. We chose this property because of the location and pool. What we didn't know was that pool capacity would be capped so early on in the day. On our first Saturday, we were unaware that the hotel started pool parties. Although it was for hotel guests only, cabanas were available at Vegas prices (starting at 1K) or you took your luck with getting there early enough to get a spot. We did neither because we were unaware of the pool parties and the capacity. We got there around noon but had to put our name on the waiting list. We waited over three hours before we were given a spot at the pool (this is after I complained multiple times to multiple people). It was a Saturday afternoon in 115 degree weather, waiting over 3 hours to use the pool was crazy when we chose this hotel because of it's pool! After speaking to multiple employees, I was put in touch with the Director of Ops- Laura. I cannot thank Laura enough for all that she did for us. For the rest of the duration of our trip, we had a reserved area in the pool for our two rooms. Laura really took care of us as the rest of the pool staff did. The waitresses, security, and all of the other employees working in the pool area really helped make our trip so much better. Laura turned the hotel's wrong into a right and that is all we can ask for. Thank you Laura and the rest of the pool staff for an unforgettable trip. I know we weren't the easiest guests to initially deal with but you truly turned our trip around after the terrible first day pool experience. We sincerely thank you and we can't wait to come again!

Definitely many special deals going down at this ho-tel. Won’t be staying there ever again. Many arguments and other loud late night activities going on in the halls makes it impossible to sleep. COVID-19 was the least of the diseases I was worried about catching. Left feeling more tired. Not good for families. Don’t stay here even if you are… Read more

The W Scottsdale is a sight to see. It has a fun atmosphere and unique design. The valet staff was probably the most helpful and polite. The staff seemed curt at times, mostly due to covid concerns I would hope. The housekeeping staff did not wear masks while cleaning the rooms. The pool was clean and the Wet Deck was spacious.

The gym was mediocre at best. The on-site lobby bar and restaurant were amazing. The on-site restaurant was fun, fresh, and the service was impeccable. Read less

Great location in Scottsdale, but what really stood out about this stay was the friendliness and helpfulness of the team. From Mike at the door to Adam at the pool, we were welcomed and taken care of.
