A riot of color in the Sonoran Desert, W Scottsdale is all about “Whatever / Whenever” – that is, whatever guests want, when they want it. And there’s a lot here to have. Sceney Sushi Roku serves up some of the town’s best rolls, while the Living Room lounge pours creative cocktails. Perched above the hotel’s entrance, WET pool is open 24/7, while Bliss Spa is a 4,000-square-foot oasis where you can relax with a massage or get your hair done for a night on the town. All 230 guestrooms and 33 specialty suites keep the hip vibe with jewel tones, the latest tech stone bathrooms with shoji doors and a separate shower with crushed glass flooring.

Scottsdale is also a baseball town, so be sure to enjoy a ball game at nearby Chase Field (in Phoenix), home of MLB’s Arizona Diamondbacks.
How to Get There
Having stayed at the W Hotel in San Francisco before, we felt confident in booking a room in Scottsdale. This hotel is a scene that caters to ages 21 to 30, and hosts many bachelor and bachelorette parties. We had no power in the bathroom, the sink would not drain, and we were awakened by a false fire alarm on the second night. The thought of sitting by the pool was out of the question because of the loud music and party scene. Saying that,service at the hotel was excellent. They fixed all problems immediately and were very kind. However, somewhere on their website it needs to state that this is not a family hotel. Anyone under 21 is excluded from the pool after nine and it is open to the general public as a bar/party scene. We were very disappointed in our stay and would opt for the Marriot next time around.
I frequently stay at Starwood hotels. I have never had a worse experience at a hotel then I did here. I was 6 months pregnant and staying at the hotel with a group of girl. First someone tried to steal my phone and bag at the pool. I did not feel safe the rest of the weekend. On our last night we tried to settle our bill early since we were checking out early the next morning. When we went to pay the bill we saw there were a few charges on there that should not have been there. When the girl in charge of our group inquired about the charges the night manager got very hostile. After paying for the charges and the bill for the weekend we went up to the rooms to pack and go to sleep. Being that I was pregnant i was exhausted and got into bed. At around midnight there was a knock on the door so we opened the door to find security and about 10 police officers outside the door telling us we were being evicted from the hotel. They would not tell us why we were being evicted from the hotel and were so nasty and unprofessional. At 6 months pregnant I was thrown out of a hotel in the middle of the night in a foreign state with no where to go. It was absolutely disgusting. Do not stay here.
Great hotel and a bit of a scene. I wouldn't suggest it as a family choice, as the pool and lobby is full bar scene, but for friends looking for fun it's great. Rooms were clean and the staff super friendly.
I have stayed at this hotel many times and love the modern yet art deco vibe. The entire staff is friendly, the food and drinks are great, and everyone is always willing to help with even the smallest requests. Make sure to check out the pool. Its absolutely the best in AZ and comes close to even topping many of the pools in Las Vegas!
On arrival again the staff was (as were all the staff) friendly, courteous and polite. The room was comfortable, clean and exactly as advertised. Breakfast was very enjoyable and even the dining room staff were not put out by our late Sunday morning arrival.
What I ended up with was a super nice double room situated next to nice , The room was amazing, breakfast tasty, very good coffee.
