Enjoyed my stay here in Phoenix, Arizona while at a training for my job at the time.
Right out of the gate I was met with kindness and gained so much insight from our bell man. Also, this was the first time I have experienced customer service via text! Talk about keeping up with the times.
The food did not disappoint! Felt like I was eating like royalty! The catered meals had a variety of options at every meal. Aside from catering there are a couple restaurants on site, as well as a Starbucks (an interior kiosk).
There were so many things to do and see at the resort in and of itself. A sauna, more pools than you will probably ever go to in one stay, business space with free printing (so you can print your boarding tickets or anything else), a tennis court, golf courses, a spa, a gym, hot tubs, bell hop rides, lots of on-site parking, etc. Just wish I could have used more of the amenities like the sauna, which didn’t have the best hours for me to take advantage of it. It’s said that the sunset pool is the spot to go for the best view. There was partying going on over there, so I ended up not checking it out.
Loved that my room had a shaded balcony! Balconies are some of my favorite things to seek out when considering accomadations. The room had a quirky layout, in that the sink and vanity were set up outside of the bathroom. This was different than what I am used to but, not too hard to get accustomed to. There was a decent sized living area with no door to separate from the rest of the room. (Yet somehow, I managed to hit my ankle as I laid down to take a nap on the couch, which was a total bummer. I had planned to go to visit North Mountain that evening.)
I didn’t get to explore too much, but it is a pretty quiet and safe area. It is near North Mountain, North Mountain Visitor Center, Starbucks, Goodwill, Walgreens, a church, Dollar Tree, McDonald’s, Dunkin’ Donuts, and more. It’s a ways from the downtown Phoenix scene, so you will need to take a rental, rideshare, or public transportation there. Other attractions in the area are Lookout Mountain, North Mountain Park, Scramble, and Musical Instrument Museum.
The landscape was awesome! It was cool to see the different cacti, plants, and unique hues at sunset.
Would love to stay here again! Hopefully with more time to actually take advantage of all they have to offer!

So thankful that God allowed me to get away for this three-day training trip leading up to my birthday last year! I was well taken care of!
