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.

How to Get There
My husband and I spent three nights here last weekend. Being Marriott Gold level we were given an automatic upgrade. Our room was nice and overlooked the pool. We both don’t mind music so for us, the location of the room was fine. If you like quiet avoid this room. As guests of the hotel you are able to attend the pool parties and evening parties for free. Water bottles are also complimentary if you ask at the front desk. Drink prices were fairly reasonable for a hotel. Also, I never noticed any noise due to construction.
The hotel was walking distance to the mall, Old Town Scottsdale and to the club district. The only time we had to take an Uber was when we visited the Desert Botanical garden. Otherwise we walked everywhere and were fine with that. If I were to come back to Scottsdale I can’t imagine staying anywhere else.
Like most hotels if theres major construction going on they wont tell you during booking. Nonstop jackhammers poolside all day long. The hotel is nice - folks are nice - but cmon. Also they charge paying guests to use the business center. huh. How much nickel and diming can you do. Nice location yada but youre paying for it as well. Definitely not worth it.
Great facilities, nice rooms. But very much a couples or singles vide. Not great for family. That being said staff were amazing and helped to accommodate as much as possible.
Perfect party spot, the night life is busy.
