Great Stay at the Clarendon Hotel
Reviewed 1 day ago

We recently stayed over the weekend at the Clarendon and thought it was perfect! The rooms have recently been renovated and were very spacious. We had lunch and breakfast at the hotel and were very impressed with the food. For breakfast we had the granola, fruit and yogurt which was very fresh and for lunch we had the enchiladas and quesadillas - both really good. I can see why its one of the top rated casual Mexican restaurants in Phoenix. We have business in Phoenix and this is really one of the best options given price point and quality. The rooftop bar was closed when we were there but when that's open its a great option for drinks/lounging after a long day.

I went to the Clarendon for a girls weekend. The hotel has a cute cactus landscape in front and the front desk clerk Jodi was very welcoming. She epitomized the definition of customer service.
The room was spacious and modern. It came with a refrigerator and a microwave is available upon request although quantities are limited. The hotel was quiet. I didn’t hear any slamming doors, ice machines or people talking.
There really isn’t a reason to eat any place else. Tranquilo has a great happy hour with $2 tacos and $5 margaritas. Stephanie was an awesome waitress.
Parking is available at the hotel for a fee or you can park on the street for free. I didn’t have any problem finding a space.
I would definitely stay at the Clarendon again.

Better off at a motel

Really disappointed. The room wasn’t filthy by any means, however, it didn’t seem to have a deep clean in a while. A dirty rag also sat on top of the mini fridge. The room has two very small windows and concrete walls which felt more like a prison. Additionally, when I tried showering this morning the water was ice cold. I called the front desk and they said I just needed to let it run for a few minutes. I let it run for about 10 minutes and gave up because I was not about to hop in a cold shower.

The restaurant attached had decent tacos, however, the service was horrible and we sat for at least 20 minutes before a server came up to us. We had to go to them for the bill as well.

In short, it just wasn’t worth the price and I could have got all this at a motel with maybe a hot shower.

So dissapointed!

I really wanted to love this hotel, and it has a lot of potential, but just didn’t meet expectations. Firstly, the Manager on duty interrupted my check-in process to have a conversation with the desk clerk, and pretended like I was invisible. Very little was explained during check-in, and I wasn’t given my breakfast voucher. Hotel is a little run down, and things in my room didn’t work properly (light bulb out, tv remote wonky, shower not hot enough and too complicated to operate, etc.). The “conditioner” in the shower dispenser is pointless —bring your own stuff!! Location is good. Breakfast was okay but not hot enough. Overall, this hotel is overpriced for what you get.

Not worth the high price

My two friends and I went to Pheonix for my friends 30th birthday. Upon check in we discovered our suite with the extra bed we paid for had been given away and we had a regular room. We were told they were booked solid and there was nothing they could do - no deductions, a comp'd meal and on top the attendant issued no apology and kept saying there was nothing they could do... They GAVE our room to someone else.

The day of check in was my friends actual birthday; what a birthday present! When we asked where some good spots to check out were, they had NO suggestions ! The hotel was in an awkward location but finally we got some recommendations from the bartender where NOT to go haha we googled places on our own.

The "free toiletries" included low quality and attached to the shower body wash, shampoo and conditioner. In a dry town and with a carry on it would have been nice for hand cream?!

An empty mini fridge where you had to to the front for drinks and snacks.

The food and drink was over priced.

The next day we were told that the fees and extra bed charge would be deducted. $20. was deducted and nothing to compensate us for the inconvenience was given.

Would NOT recommend!
