Chaparral Suites gives you the best of both worlds: a resort-like stay in the heart of the city. Centerpiece fountains and manicured gardens define the elegant grounds, while the large lobby feels like a modern Spanish hacienda, done up with beehive terra-cotta tiles, barrel brick ceilings and low-slung metal chandeliers. A favorite with the conference crowd, the vast public and event spaces occupy much of the ground floor, while upstairs, the 312 apartment-like guestrooms have all the mod cons. Even the smallest have separate living areas with dining tables, pull-out sleeper sofas and wet bars, plus king or queen beds and en-suite bathrooms with overtub or standalone showers. American breakfast is included in the rate and served daily in the Clubhouse, and there’s the 4th Floor Grille for comfort food favorites like burgers, club sandwiches, ribs, pizza and decadent desserts prepared by the in-house pastry chef. For fitness fiends, there’s a small gym, an outdoor tennis court and two pools.
In the Area
Shopping is practically a professional sport in Scottsdale, and you can follow the most skilled practitioners to Old Town Scottsdale, a few blocks of shops, galleries and restaurants just south of Scottsdale Fashion Square. A few miles to the north, where the setting is more desert than city, visit Taliesin West, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Arizona home and studio. Taliesin’s neighbor, the 27,800-acre McDowell Sonoran Preserve, which contains 120 miles of day-hiking trails, is one of the country’s largest city-owned areas of protected land.
How to Get There
Embassy Suites Scottsdale is a well located, convenient hotel providing full service and spacious suite-style rooms. Excellent breakfast buffet, as well as other amenities - pools tennis court, fitness center, bar and restaurant.
My Room was stuck at 77 degrees for my entire stay and I had poor sleep both nights. I called one time to get this fixed (my second night there) and no one came. I was extremely dissatisfied with this experience...WARNING: Check your controller for your A/C right away and get it set on a better temp by their maintenance before you sleep the first night!
I have stayed at this hotel in the past, and remembered it fondly. This year I found it to be getting a little run down (at least the section we were in). The breakfast was good, if a little repetitive (we were there for several days). The evening reception was also nice, but the appetizers included were also repetitive. We had one major problem with the accommodations, and the staff was unwilling to do anything to compensate us. We were there for a group event, and the food at that event was only so-so, and one buffet set up took forever to get through the line (it was slowed down by waiting for the individual frying of tortillas). And, I understand from the organizers that our group was also charged more than expected for some services, making it unlikely that we would have an event there again.
