el parque acuatico paradaise si, no me gusto que me hicieran un cargo de 30 dolares mas impuestos diario sin previo aviso, cuando lo reclame me informaron que era por el uso de estacionamiento, cafe en el cuarto, por la disposicion de el gym, y uso del parque acuatico; cosa que estos servicios deben de incluirse en la tarifa del hotel como lo es en todos los hoteles. (cuando hice la reserva pregunte en el hotel si el uso del parque estaba incluido en la tarifa de hotel su respuesta fue afirmativa, que tenia derecho hasta 6 personas, nunca me aclararon un cargo adicional)
Los jardines eran preciosos y estaban en excelentes condiciones. Las habitaciones son grandes y tienen todo lo que necesitas. La ubicación fue excelente. El gimnasio era increíble! La cama no era la más cómoda que he utilizado en un hotel. Especialmente por el dinero. Como es de esperar, el servicio de comida en el lugar es extremadamente caro. Tarifa de resort es alta y no opcional - ¡te convencerá de todos modos!
Fabulous architecture and gardens; friendly and helpful staff, great breakfasts. Everything! nothing.
Mountain biking and guide (Chip) were excellent. Wright's was outstanding dining all around. Food, service, presentation, ambiance, price. If the entire resort were run like Wrights, this would be a five star resort. Spa services, attendants were great. Megan O. at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. The lobby is beautiful. A Maintanence engineering employee whose name I did not get. The bicycle room service provided a bit of whimsy and were a delight to watch them ride through the resort. The swim up bar is a nice touch, but perhaps should not be immediately next to the kids water slide. Was billed as a five star resort when I booked it. Don't get me wrong, this is a nice place with a lot of history. However, a five star resort implies attention to little details that separate you from other resorts. Those little details were missing. While I understand the main entrance is under renovation, the concrete blocks holding down the umbrellas for the valets looked cheap and haphazard. Not a good first impression. Upon arrival, no one offered to help with my bags, merely pointing me to the direction of the temporary main entrance. At that entrance, there is a small lip in the doorway, making it difficult to maneuver a roller bag. While the front desk did ask if I needed assistance with my bags, no bellhops were around if I did, and given the room location, they should have been more readily available, as my room in the garden wing is on the second floor accessible only by stairs. Upon check-in, I searched for ice (which with a bellhop could have been a non-issue at least for the first day). I could not locate the ice machine, or anything in the in-room literature to direct me. I found a housekeeper and asked her. She did not seem to know either. A maintenance engineering department employee coming out of a guest room overhead the conversation and immediately led me to the nearest ice machine himself. Unfortunately it was broken. Not only that, there was a bus cart full of dirty dishes stowed in front of it. Again, this is the kind of little detail a five-star resort takes care of. The ice machine in the adjacent paradise wing seemed more designed for "back of the house" rather than for a guest to be accessing it. Service at Frank and Albert's was very nonchalant. It did not seem as is they cared if we stayed to eat or not, or enjoyed our meal. Everything seemed to be under construction at once, causing noise throughout the day, from early in the morning until afternoon. When I asked about this, several, employees' response was "well, it's the slow season...." as if I should have lower expectations because it's August. Again, a little detail a five-star resort should nail. Guests should not notice a difference in staff attention regardless of "season." A few other "little details": In the lobby bar, the cords for the TVs and speakers were haphazardly hanging, not neatly along the wall. There was visible water damage on one of the corner speakers. A large cobweb was hanging in the corner and blowing with the AC. There were several areas where grout or paint had dripped onto the pressed concrete blocks from recent renovations but were left there, not removed. The pool desk was open and appeared to be staffed, but was unmanned for five minutes, leading me to walk behind the desk to help myself to clean towels as no one was around. Ultimately, we cut our stay a day short and moved to a different area five star resort, where we did not experience any negative issues.
Many luxury features. Service very good and happy hour nice. Hot tub not warm, bed sagged in middle, no robes, landscapers started gas power hedge trimmers at 8:35am for 45 minutes in courtyard next to room.
Property is fantastic. Amazing history of the Biltmore, as seen in all the photos throughout. Room needed updated
Truly beautiful hotel. Beautiful grounds. Upgraded us to a private cottage room free of charge. Would love to stay here again soon.
Lots of places to sit and talk. Good facilities. Newly renovated rooms are very nice. Staff is great! Smoking in the general seating areas outside
We celebrated our anniversary and were upgraded to a beautiful suite, and the front desk staff sent a beverage, chocolates and fruit to our room when they learned. Loved the room, the grounds are amazing and enjoyed the amazing amenities. We're planning to return every year.
My room was nicely renovated but bathroom much to small. The shower when in use would soak the bathroom floor. The property is getting tired looking, time for a face lift. I returned after 10 years and was disappointed to find gym still to small, spa uninspiring, exercise studio and bike/tennis area a throw back to 1980. I would return to the front portico each morning from a long run and was never greeted by bell staff or offered bottled water as i stood there recovering from the run and sweating from the desert heat. I have become so accustomed to being greeted by staff with bottled water and towel upon returning from jogging at all great hotels that i really resented having to ask for it. The main lobby is beautiful and I enjoyed evening cocktails on the patio adjacent to the lobby. The bar staff was lovely. Lunch and breakfast in Frank and Albert's was painful to endure. Breakfast was so delayed with mistakes to the order and lunch was mediocre. The cafe also disappointed. One meal at each was one too many. Best meals were all off property. My daughter and I walked thru the shops and found once again we were back in the 80's. We love to shop so it was hard to believe there was almost next to nothing to buy. Housekeeping was a bit lacking of management, it seemed. Dirty dessert dishes lingered in my room for two days. The Scottsdale - Phoenix area has so many fabulous resorts, it's to bad The Biltmore doesn't seem to be one of them anymore.
Nice pool and gym. Great drinks at the hotel bar. Beautiful hotel. They seemed to be incredibly short staffed in terms of housekeeping. On our first night, our room wasn't ready for check-in at 6:30pm -- 2.5 hours after the hotel's check-in time of 4pm. It seemed like it would work out in our favor because we got a room upgrade since our assigned room wasn't ready. But then on our second day our room wasn't cleaned until 4:30pm and on our third day, they didn't clean the room at all -- and we were out of the room from 10am until 9pm! When we called the front desk, they offered to send someone to clean the room, but it took 40 minutes for someone to show up.
Everything! Very Unique.
Bonitas habitaciones por el precio, parque acuático de diversión, pero las piscinas estaban sucias y el suelo de la piscina quemaba los pies.
Me gusta la ubicación en la calle 16. Bares y restaurantes por allí cerca. Parque acuático divertido. Las habitaciones están un poco anticuadas. El Parque acuático era más pequeño de lo que me esperaba. No hay un montón de opciones para comer en el resort durante el verano.
Es un lugar agradable, con una cama muy buena Nada de que quejarse
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
Convenient. Great room. Spacious.
Pool was great. Loved having access to the JW next door and all the amenities Kickoff room was a bit small, nice but small.
The quietness and the place not being as hectic as the sister hotel across the way. Nothing I noticed.
That it had a fridge and microwave. It was also close to desert ridge. No
Clean room and nice location Did not meet the standards (in my opinion) of a four star hotel based on very small room size, very small bathroom/tub/shower, lack of upgrades amenities both in the room and on the property. Should be a three start property (just my personal opinion).
The pools were amazing. n/a
Loved it. Loved that you had access to JW Marriot Loved it all
Great location for things to do away from the hotel. Pool areas looked nice but I unfortunately didn't get a chance to use them. Would like to stay again to use the facilities.
Room key was confusing
Pool area Room was dusty- was sneezing and woke up with red eyes, dirty towels and soiled linen, chased away from fire pit near pool area by a swarm of roaches, drunk guest at pool area...
We liked the grounds, pools, microwave and fridg in the room. The room was too narrow, parking spaces were limited, the cool air blew continuously from the top of the wall vent right down onto the sleeping area. There was no adjustment for this vent to redirect the air flow, resulting in interrupted sleep.
