No continental breakfast as promised
My room was next to the pool, the rooms were a good size, staff was amazing, was given late checkout until 1:30 for no charge, the golf terraine is gorgeous, there were other families there on Saturday which made it nice for my daughter to play, pool was very clean, there are 2 pools, the smaller pool is nicer, pool is open late, hot tubs are large, store across the street, lots of restaurants around, no bedbugs. Hot tub wasn't working by large pool, furniture in room is from 1967 and smells accordingly, rooms feel like a mix between a skanky motel and retirement home, the whole place feels like a retirement home, I went to the restaurant and it was gross, waitress was very rude to me and I left, rooms don't feel very secure, some really shady looking guests, towels are nasty, purchased Lysol wipes and wiped down my ENTIRE room after I was told my room was non refundable, it was filthy, including the toilet, bed very uncomfortable, there was blood on my sheets.
Nothing The service The Customer Service The Reservation Desk
Strange parking situation but not bad
The room was big and very clean. The kitchenette was a nice amenity, too. The bathroom area was very functional with the shower/toilet in a separate room from the sink and very long counter (loved the counter space!). Although standard in most hotels, having a functioning iron and board that didn't leave a stain on my shirts was a life saver. I am a big coffee drinker. I would've like to see a little more than maxwell house coffee filters for the old style coffee pot. I tried it once and couldn't do it twice. Ended up going out for coffee.
Location close to venues and restaurants Staff asked for us to write a good review if we enjoyed everything. It's their job to make me want to write a good review. After many years on customer service I found it very tacky that managment asked me to write a good review
Course is fun to play. The staff was friendly and went out of their way to please. Prime rib was excellent and the restaurant staff was very efficient and nice. The resort was built in 1960, so things are a little dated, but they are working on upgrades all the time. The kitchenette is a great option for the people who don't like to eat out every night! P.S. Don't eat the oranges on the trees they are an ornamental variety and YUCK!!!
The 1st we was given was dirty, needed updated. We asked for a second room, it was also dirty & needed updated. The 3rd room was dirty, needed updated & the beds were not made. We asked to cancel & they agreed. We would not stay in any of these rooms even if they were free.
No continental breakfast as promised Hot tub was closed due to repairs the other one was packed so wasn't able to use it.
Everyone was very friendly, accommodating, everyone from housekeeping to front desk, maintenance, wait staff at the restaurant The restaurant has a tent menu on the tables, I asked Suna, one of the waitstaff to order a couple of the small plates to go so I could eat them in my hotel room. She said no, the small plates are for golf members only, I also explained that I am staying at the hotel, she said no, but they have a buffet they are setting up and it would be ready at noon. I never went back for food. If I can't order what I want for food, I won't give you my business.
el parque acuatico paradaise si, no me gusto que me hicieran un cargo de 30 dolares mas impuestos diario sin previo aviso, cuando lo reclame me informaron que era por el uso de estacionamiento, cafe en el cuarto, por la disposicion de el gym, y uso del parque acuatico; cosa que estos servicios deben de incluirse en la tarifa del hotel como lo es en todos los hoteles. (cuando hice la reserva pregunte en el hotel si el uso del parque estaba incluido en la tarifa de hotel su respuesta fue afirmativa, que tenia derecho hasta 6 personas, nunca me aclararon un cargo adicional)
Los jardines eran preciosos y estaban en excelentes condiciones. Las habitaciones son grandes y tienen todo lo que necesitas. La ubicación fue excelente. El gimnasio era increíble! La cama no era la más cómoda que he utilizado en un hotel. Especialmente por el dinero. Como es de esperar, el servicio de comida en el lugar es extremadamente caro. Tarifa de resort es alta y no opcional - ¡te convencerá de todos modos!
It had no internet connection and its staff left a lot to be desired not very helpful. Internet connection was supposed to be available but was not and they could not care less.Of the many hotels I have booked through you this was the first hotel I felt I had to complain about.Finbarr Ross take it off your list.
the location is very good close to Phoenix and those attractions. We even went to edona for a day trip. The staff helpful. The room was poorly appointed. The bed was terrible. There was very poor water pressure. We could not believe that there wasn't free wi-fi. We found this to be archaic & unacceptable.
I love the location and the nice facilities. Staff is friendly and helpful. Food is good and golf course is reasonably priced. I don't like that the attached bar closes to early during the week (9pm). We were toward the front of the whole area and the flag was displayed directly in front of our room. There was NOT adequate window shades to block out the continuous very bright light.
Relaxing atmosphere..nice rooms...outdoor patios for each unit Ability to get a room location that is requested in advance. Why ask at time of booking about your requests if they do not honor it or sem to know that there was even one asked for..if I asked for a back 2nd floor suite..why try & give me a 1st floor front roomm ?? Second time this happened .
The hotel was convenient to shopping and close to our golf school. The front desk staff were really nice, but they didn't appear to be overly competent. The room was not cleaned properly; bathroom sinks not cleaned; bed very poorly made with bedspread left piled on the floor.
The facility appears to be clean and the grounds and pool are very nice. It is a good location for our purposes. Hot water was in short supply--especially in the evening. Although the bed was soft and comfortable--the sheets were paper thin and better quality linens could have added comfort to the sleeping experience
Property is fantastic. Amazing history of the Biltmore, as seen in all the photos throughout. Room needed updated
Truly beautiful hotel. Beautiful grounds. Upgraded us to a private cottage room free of charge. Would love to stay here again soon.
We celebrated our anniversary and were upgraded to a beautiful suite, and the front desk staff sent a beverage, chocolates and fruit to our room when they learned. Loved the room, the grounds are amazing and enjoyed the amazing amenities. We're planning to return every year.
Fabulous architecture and gardens; friendly and helpful staff, great breakfasts. Everything! nothing.
My room was nicely renovated but bathroom much to small. The shower when in use would soak the bathroom floor. The property is getting tired looking, time for a face lift. I returned after 10 years and was disappointed to find gym still to small, spa uninspiring, exercise studio and bike/tennis area a throw back to 1980. I would return to the front portico each morning from a long run and was never greeted by bell staff or offered bottled water as i stood there recovering from the run and sweating from the desert heat. I have become so accustomed to being greeted by staff with bottled water and towel upon returning from jogging at all great hotels that i really resented having to ask for it. The main lobby is beautiful and I enjoyed evening cocktails on the patio adjacent to the lobby. The bar staff was lovely. Lunch and breakfast in Frank and Albert's was painful to endure. Breakfast was so delayed with mistakes to the order and lunch was mediocre. The cafe also disappointed. One meal at each was one too many. Best meals were all off property. My daughter and I walked thru the shops and found once again we were back in the 80's. We love to shop so it was hard to believe there was almost next to nothing to buy. Housekeeping was a bit lacking of management, it seemed. Dirty dessert dishes lingered in my room for two days. The Scottsdale - Phoenix area has so many fabulous resorts, it's to bad The Biltmore doesn't seem to be one of them anymore.
Mountain biking and guide (Chip) were excellent. Wright's was outstanding dining all around. Food, service, presentation, ambiance, price. If the entire resort were run like Wrights, this would be a five star resort. Spa services, attendants were great. Megan O. at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. The lobby is beautiful. A Maintanence engineering employee whose name I did not get. The bicycle room service provided a bit of whimsy and were a delight to watch them ride through the resort. The swim up bar is a nice touch, but perhaps should not be immediately next to the kids water slide. Was billed as a five star resort when I booked it. Don't get me wrong, this is a nice place with a lot of history. However, a five star resort implies attention to little details that separate you from other resorts. Those little details were missing. While I understand the main entrance is under renovation, the concrete blocks holding down the umbrellas for the valets looked cheap and haphazard. Not a good first impression. Upon arrival, no one offered to help with my bags, merely pointing me to the direction of the temporary main entrance. At that entrance, there is a small lip in the doorway, making it difficult to maneuver a roller bag. While the front desk did ask if I needed assistance with my bags, no bellhops were around if I did, and given the room location, they should have been more readily available, as my room in the garden wing is on the second floor accessible only by stairs. Upon check-in, I searched for ice (which with a bellhop could have been a non-issue at least for the first day). I could not locate the ice machine, or anything in the in-room literature to direct me. I found a housekeeper and asked her. She did not seem to know either. A maintenance engineering department employee coming out of a guest room overhead the conversation and immediately led me to the nearest ice machine himself. Unfortunately it was broken. Not only that, there was a bus cart full of dirty dishes stowed in front of it. Again, this is the kind of little detail a five-star resort takes care of. The ice machine in the adjacent paradise wing seemed more designed for "back of the house" rather than for a guest to be accessing it. Service at Frank and Albert's was very nonchalant. It did not seem as is they cared if we stayed to eat or not, or enjoyed our meal. Everything seemed to be under construction at once, causing noise throughout the day, from early in the morning until afternoon. When I asked about this, several, employees' response was "well, it's the slow season...." as if I should have lower expectations because it's August. Again, a little detail a five-star resort should nail. Guests should not notice a difference in staff attention regardless of "season." A few other "little details": In the lobby bar, the cords for the TVs and speakers were haphazardly hanging, not neatly along the wall. There was visible water damage on one of the corner speakers. A large cobweb was hanging in the corner and blowing with the AC. There were several areas where grout or paint had dripped onto the pressed concrete blocks from recent renovations but were left there, not removed. The pool desk was open and appeared to be staffed, but was unmanned for five minutes, leading me to walk behind the desk to help myself to clean towels as no one was around. Ultimately, we cut our stay a day short and moved to a different area five star resort, where we did not experience any negative issues.
Nice pool and gym. Great drinks at the hotel bar. Beautiful hotel. They seemed to be incredibly short staffed in terms of housekeeping. On our first night, our room wasn't ready for check-in at 6:30pm -- 2.5 hours after the hotel's check-in time of 4pm. It seemed like it would work out in our favor because we got a room upgrade since our assigned room wasn't ready. But then on our second day our room wasn't cleaned until 4:30pm and on our third day, they didn't clean the room at all -- and we were out of the room from 10am until 9pm! When we called the front desk, they offered to send someone to clean the room, but it took 40 minutes for someone to show up.
Everything! Very Unique.
Many luxury features. Service very good and happy hour nice. Hot tub not warm, bed sagged in middle, no robes, landscapers started gas power hedge trimmers at 8:35am for 45 minutes in courtyard next to room.
Lots of places to sit and talk. Good facilities. Newly renovated rooms are very nice. Staff is great! Smoking in the general seating areas outside
Bonitas habitaciones por el precio, parque acuático de diversión, pero las piscinas estaban sucias y el suelo de la piscina quemaba los pies.
Es un lugar agradable, con una cama muy buena Nada de que quejarse
Me gusta la ubicación en la calle 16. Bares y restaurantes por allí cerca. Parque acuático divertido. Las habitaciones están un poco anticuadas. El Parque acuático era más pequeño de lo que me esperaba. No hay un montón de opciones para comer en el resort durante el verano.
Staff,location,price and food!!!!!
This location if beyond fantastic. It is quiet and serene. You can ride horses, hike, canoe etc. The employees are so friendly and helpful. The breakfast in the morning far exceeded or expectations! I can't say enough things about this charming place! no...
Was really nice. The location was perfect. Beautiful view right out front door.
Great location - lovely property - wished we stayed longer!
Clean room and nice location Did not meet the standards (in my opinion) of a four star hotel based on very small room size, very small bathroom/tub/shower, lack of upgrades amenities both in the room and on the property. Should be a three start property (just my personal opinion).
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
Room key was confusing
Pool was great. Loved having access to the JW next door and all the amenities Kickoff room was a bit small, nice but small.
Pool area Room was dusty- was sneezing and woke up with red eyes, dirty towels and soiled linen, chased away from fire pit near pool area by a swarm of roaches, drunk guest at pool area...
The quietness and the place not being as hectic as the sister hotel across the way. Nothing I noticed.
Great location for things to do away from the hotel. Pool areas looked nice but I unfortunately didn't get a chance to use them. Would like to stay again to use the facilities.
The pools were amazing. n/a
Loved it. Loved that you had access to JW Marriot Loved it all
That it had a fridge and microwave. It was also close to desert ridge. No
We liked the grounds, pools, microwave and fridg in the room. The room was too narrow, parking spaces were limited, the cool air blew continuously from the top of the wall vent right down onto the sleeping area. There was no adjustment for this vent to redirect the air flow, resulting in interrupted sleep.
Convenient. Great room. Spacious.
