The W Scottsdale, what a dream.
I spent this last weekend in Scottsdale because I’m turning the big THIRTY on April 19th and I had heard such wonderful things about Scottsdale including the W Scottsdale which is one of the hottest and best hotels in the area. I imagined it would be beautiful but also much like most other hotels as far as the vibe and everything it had to offer. WRONG!! Wrong in the best way. This hotel is full of life, the restaurants, the staff, the pool, no detail was over looked.
We arrived pretty late because our flight was delayed, however, the staff greeted us just as someone would in the morning, chipper and happy to see us. They were so wonderful and helpful when recommending places to go and see. They also treated us to an incredible doughnut wall in our room, which I have to say was a first for me! The fruit loops doughnut was my fav… so much yum. It was a very nice touch.
The pool was spectacular!!! I loved how it was in the middle of everything and had a glorious amount of lounge chairs, tables, booths, etc. You could go up to the bar and grab drinks or there were also servers who came around often who you could order drinks and/or food from. This made it so easy and convenient to just hang out all day and enjoy ourselves, not having to get all dried off and lose our spots just to go eat. I really liked that option, one day we had breakfast and lunch at the pool and it was a dream. The other wonderful part was there were tons of umbrellas that they would help you move around if you wanted more shade and for those of us who are very pale and don’t tan often, the umbrella was a huge win! This area also turns into a little bar area in the evening which was beautiful , complete with little fire pits and everything.
The lobby bar had live music every night- so cool! There’s lots of cute seating options and again, so much energy. I loved that you could sit at a table with friends, or also at the bar. We ended up making a lot of friends in this area!
The food was unbelievable- Sushi Roku it was probably one of the most delicious Sushi restaurants I’ve ever visited. They heard it was my Birthday and they took such great care of us, it was very thoughtful and I felt so special.
We also really loved that this hotel is located right in the heart of Old Town which we learned quickly is the place to be. So many restaurants, lounges and bars a stones throw away, being in walking distance to everything is was much worth it. We loved walking around and checking everything out.
Overall I was blown away, this hotel exceeded my expectations by a long shot and I couldn’t have imagined spending my 30th Birthday weekend anywhere else. Everything about the W Scottsdale was impeccably clean, well taken care of and most of all, it felt so warm and welcoming. Thank you again and I can’t wait to come back.
