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.

I stayed at this hotel for a week, April 27- May 3. Everything is a little more challenging with the shut down. But Liz and Cody were amazing to make sure everything I needed was taken care. Sunday morning I needed a ride to the airport at 4:20am. There were no Ubers, Lyfts or cabs available. And there were no other flights that day to get me home. Vanessa called everywhere to no avail! Finally, she called her manager, Stephanie, at 4:30am. Stephanie was there in 10 minutes and took me to the airport. This is so far above the call of duty and yet........they did it! It speaks to the culture of excellence that I experienced all week. You can bet, I will certainly go back!! Read less

All of the staff here is just super super nice, but this place could use a facelift in the rooms. We stayed in the two bedroom suite and everything in that suite had stories, ie weathered/worn. While the staff was nice and said yes to the requests, the execution was low. For instance we had a kitchen in our room, asked 3 times for it to be stocked… Read more
All of the staff here is just super super nice, but this place could use a facelift in the rooms. We stayed in the two bedroom suite and everything in that suite had stories, ie weathered/worn. While the staff was nice and said yes to the requests, the execution was low. For instance we had a kitchen in our room, asked 3 times for it to be stocked and they said they were cleaning the stuff to stock it and then just never did it. I let them know I was having a package delivered there and they denied it twice, despite having conversations about it. My advice would be to just go here if you plan on getting obscenely drunk as that is the type of place I think they want to be. Read less

If you want to get some decent sleep, see if an interior room helps minimize the outside noise. My room is on the second floor with the windows facing the street/East.

If you want to get some decent sleep, see if an interior room helps minimize the outside noise. My room is on the second floor with the windows facing the street/East. As I write this review at midnight Wednesday/Thursday during the second night of my stay here, there is music pumping from a nearby establishment. It is the busy season with spring training, spring break, snow birds, etc., but I wish there was better sound proofing for a decent night’s sleep. I understand you can’t control your neighbors. The room itself is on the smaller side but comfortable and has the usual amenities you’d expect. Read less

The check in at the hotel was easy and the concierge assisted with tours and trips as needed. The rooms are cool and the spa suite was spacious. The hotel is VERY loud at most times so if you’re looking for peace and quiet then this isn’t the hotel for you.

The check in at the hotel was easy and the concierge assisted with tours and trips as needed. The rooms are cool and the spa suite was spacious. The hotel is VERY loud at most times so if you’re looking for peace and quiet then this isn’t the hotel for you. It’s a very young and energetic vibe as most days there are pool parties all day long and another in the evening. The lobby also serve as a bar/club with live music at night. It’s centrally located. You’re a few blocks from old town and a few blocks from the “waterfront” area. Great restaurants nearby and cool clubs for day parties as well. Would stay here again. Read less
