That's a great location. Right by Mill Avenue in Downtown Tempe and a really easy drive to PHX and Scottsdale. Perfect for an ASU football game too.

Already reserved here for a meeting in the Phoenix area in November. Tried but wasn't terribly keen on the AC National Harbor - wanted to see if this property was any better. Would welcome any feedback about the hotel before then obviously.

As someone who realizes that 110 or so, really isn't that bad, particularly without the necessity of 50 pounds of gear ... I'm heading to Scottsdale this weekend. Probably sticking with my fave, JW Camelback, even though the pools aren't quite as elaborate as the Desert Ridge. Both have very low rates.

Any platinum premiers stayed there lately? Wondering how they are doing on upgrades during the summer seasons. Also, any waiver of the resort fee? How about if on a government rate?

It's been a couple of years since I stayed there on a non-conference basis and not sure how they are handling things now (they used to waive the resort fee if on the gov rate).

I'm thinking we might want to ask the mod to pull out some of the posts in this thread that are property specific & either merge them into existing property-specific threads or start some. Family threads are supposed to be about comparisons between properties or which of these to stay at, so it makes it difficult wading through those posts to try & find the specific property posts.

Cheers.

Good point, I think there would be value in separating the Phoenix area resorts from this thread. Typically, I don't think people are going to be comparing the two JW resorts to the other Marriott properties in Phoenix but would compare them to each other.

And there are individual property thread for both of those. But someone looking for Moxy or AC, for example, now has to read all 14 pages (I have my pages set to max) to find a report. It would be easier to separate specific property trip reports into individual property reports or start new property threads. A comparison btwn 2 properties (whether resort or otherwise) would stay in this thread. If I get time this weekend I'll dig out posts & send a PM to the mod.

Cheers.

Was the scent overpowering or otherwise disgusting? I have a stay coming up where the Moxy is a possible option. I understand there aren't any elite benefits but it's a 2-nighter for a conference that will provide breakfast and happy hour drinks, so I figure this might be a good opportunity to try out the brand.

The other millennial stuff I can live with, but if this place smells like some of the Vegas casinos do, that might be a dealbreaker.

Why would you think a Moxy in AZ would smell like a Vegas casino?

Cheers.

Because this brand apparently has a "custom scent" they disperse throughout the hotel.

While I'm sure there are many hotels that do this and I haven't noticed it, the ones that advertise that they do this are sometimes a bit over the top. (That's the reference to Vegas: they love to do it.)

In the end, I decided to go with the Residence Inn instead. They had a nice rate and I'm always a sucker for a newer RI in an urban location when I can get it at a decent price.

This one is quite good: RI Tempe Downtown/University at 5th & Forest. Adjacent to the Tempe transit center: you could easily take the train to/from PHX. (Although I haven't done it...Lyft has been too awesome here, never more than a 3 minute wait.) Also walking distance to ASU, Sun Devil Stadium, Mill Street, Tempe Beach Park, etc.

Rather new hotel. Manager's reception has craft and import beer. Good firm mattresses. Nice clean breakfast area. (I ate at 6:30AM so I can't really comment on whether there are crowds at 8 or 9AM.) I'd recommend it...

They upgraded me to a 2bdrm suite (1 king in one room and 1 queen in the other). Traveling solo so I haven't even gone in the queen room, but still...nice touch and kind of rare in my years of RI stays.

Rooftop pool, hot tub, and fire pit. Pretty cool (yet not totally hipster ) place all around. ^

Didn't make it to Phoenix this month for the meetings so didn't get a chance to try out the AC Phoenix.

Any flyertalkers stay here yet?
