Staff was very friendly and helpful. Love the location - easy walk to arena and convention center and light rail. Plenty of restaurants, clubs, live music choices nearby as well. While I didn't mind, some may be put off by the need to leave the hotel and cross the plaza to access fitness center and breakfast. Both are well worth the "inconvenience"
I liked the location, the décor, and the amenities and perks included with the hotel room stay. Overall, a great hotel. :) I did not like the design of the shower, where it was only partially enclosed with a glass wall, where water could spray out onto the bathroom floor. The mattress was a little hard, and the pillows were a little flat.
Room was clean and comfortable. Staff was friendly, courteous and professional. Only guests can enter the guest room floors. Our room's thermostat was not working right. Our room at the lowest temperature was freezing but at any higher temperature our room would be way too hot. There was no door on the shower which caused water from the shower to get on the bathroom floor, making it slick and a fall hazard. Our bed had no sheet, just the comforter and a small throw blanket. We had to request a sheet and add it to the bed ourselves. We had a very difficult time getting comfortable enough to sleep.
Cleanliness Room service took forever to show up...2hrs later
Nice place No smoking. $140+ rooms but $27 just to park in garage. And no the hotel doesn't pay for it dicount it or validate parking. This was a bummer.
This hotel is Nice and clean. The interior design is modern. The location is perfect if you want to take a stroll around downtown. From the front entrance, you can see the US Airways stadium, the Chase stadium or arena (sorry, not a sports fan) and just a few minutes walk away. Also it about a five to ten minutes walk to Heritage Square. One minus is the room we stayed in had only one chair and a long sofa for seating. Having just one chair made it tough for two of us to enjoy food or coffee in our room. I recommend friends to stay there, but because it's downtown, don't be surprised about how expensive parking can be, $23/night. None
The Renaissance is close to so many cool downtown Phoenix venues - Valley Bar, Hanny's Seamus McCaffrey's, and Crescent Ballroom. We were able to walk around and had plenty to do all within walking distance.
The location of the hotel was great. It was in the heart of Phoenix. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The gym is very small and they were renovating so you could hear work being done and the elevators were really slow.
Staff very friendly and helpful. The Concierge Room is advertised as being for guests with rewards points at the Platinum or Gold level plus one guest. The hotel opened the Concierge Room to hundreds of pre-teen and teenaged girls unchaperoned, competing in a national ballerina event in the city. Business and professional guests very disappointed.
Stayed in one of the newly renovated rooms. When I got off the elevator to go to my room, I stepped on the thickest, plushest carpet ever. Room was spotless. Lots of outlets on the desk so I was able to keep all my devices charged. All of the staff I encountered were pleasant and helpful. Even the valet, when my car was brought around, washed my windshield before I started out for home. Extremely easy to get back to I-10. The breakfast buffet was wonderful - including lots of fresh fruit and again. Walking distance to Chase Field as well as lots of bars and restaurants. Would have liked to have had a magnifying mirror in the bathroom for putting on my makeup but there was lots of light.
The bathroom Very unhappy with trying to book two deluxe rooms next door for our bachelorette weekend. When requested, " Syndey" didn't see any prob. Didn't happen of course!
Large rooms. Comfy bedding. Modern design. Great views of the city. Great breakfast. If you elect not to have maid service, you are given a $5 coupon to use in the restaurant. Parking was $28 per car per night. We parked across the street for $14 per night.
Booked the hotel and tried to cancel a couple hours later. Priceline spoke with the front desk manager and they refused to allow me to cancel. I understand it's in your fine print but it's just bad business practice to take someone's money when the reservation was JUST made. It's not like it was booked for months and the room was not given to someone else because of my reservation. I am the CEO of a moderately sized company and travel to Phoenix 5-10 times a year and send hundreds of clients to Phoenix. I will make sure no one stays here. Good thing you kept my $500.
The view, the rate, the employees The carpet, the old Apple phone radio
Staff was friendly and helpful.
I do appreciate the employees and the easy access to many other attractions. That was nice I did not like the actual bed and the sheets and covers. I must of woke up 6 -7 times. Sheets where not soft. They were hard and loud. The bed was noisy and felt old. Was not a comfortable sleep. Also. This is arizona the air is dry. Maybe giving complimentary waters would be nice. Not charge $5 per water bottle.
Typical nice Hyatt hotel. Fix the hot water!
Great location for what we needed. I really liked the Fitness Center. Plenty of cardio machines. Nice touch having the cold, wet towels available. Water temperature was terrible in the room. Either too cold or too hot. When I turned on the hot water at the sink to wash my face it got very hot and no amount of cold water would cool it down for quite a while. The shower had to be turned all the way hot to get a warm shower. There wasn't a shower towel mat for the floor the first day we were there.
If you're attending a function at the convention center, this is the perfect hotel. I wish that there was a small store for incedentals.
Very close to Talking Stick Resort Arena and Chase Field. Staff was not very knowledgeable about the area which was strange considering they live there. Parking is terribly overpriced and wifi is not free. Hotel overall looks very tired and run-down. Online pictures are not a true representation of what the property looks like.
The staff was friendly and I liked the amenities in the hotel. The bathroom was really small.
Walking Distance to Chase Field. Room had a vague smell of cigarette smoke.
The heart of downtown Phoenix within walking distance to restaurants and bars downtown. The most uncomfortable bed I've attempted sleep in for as long as I can remember. My poor back.
Semi clean room Nothing open past 12, very much lack of knowledge of there "hotel" hour of operations, never had an opportunity to enjoy like food but like everything else there is somthing more rhat will stick with people at Tucson, for a life time
Location, Clean Rooms, Excellent Beds, Good Internet. Homeless Begging right outside front doors.
The room was clean and comfortable It's funny that the only memorable and helpful staff are not upfront. Reception is horrible...H O R R I B L E!! This is the only reason I would never go back.
walking distance to anything downtown; very clean; friendly staff; excellent bed no free wi-fi???? $17 parking????
Staff were not friendly .... injured myself while there and would not allow me temporary use of a wheelchair. Nothing in the vicinity of the hotel really.
Customer service was great!
It was a great experience from the front desk to the easy check out. Not really a factor if you're not a weekender but parking is truly disproportionate to the amount of rooms in the hotel. You will find that out the hard way if you find yourself staying on a Saturday night.
Great historic building that fit in right in the center of downtown. As it is a historic property, the lobby was marvelously refurbished with its marble surroundings. Rooms were extremely clean and comfortable and the style is wonderful. Close to everything in downtown including the light rail, bars/restaurants, sports arenas, and nightlife. As it is a historic property only valet parking available which may inconvenience some but wasn't a deterrent for me. Room service limited to a few hours daily.
The pool deck was gorgeous and the staff was nice. The location was okay but still a little sketchy. You can hear everything. Every sneeze or soft whisper from other rooms. The windows let every street noise in.
Have stayed there many times, will return. Be careful: do not get an adjoining room.
I don't expect much when it comes to amenities, but the bathroom didn't even have soap. Like, so I could wash my hands. Both elevators were broken the entire time too
The front desk lady was extremely rude to start. Absolutely zero parking although the add indicated parking is available. We had to PAY for parking and walk 5 blocks in the 110 heat. No breakfast. The bathroom door had no lock. And, the kicker is this morning I have little bites all over me!
The history of the hotel was pretty cool. The room was very small in comparison to newer hotels.
The Hotel San Carlos is a fascinating gem out of the 1920s. Great for the history buff, someone willing to try something unique for a lifetime memory. The staff was considerate, always helpful, and very friendly. I had no complaints. Would stay there again. (Plus, the bath towels have to be the largest ever made...the size of beach towels!) Thankful there were lots of close restaurants. The Vietnamese restaurant was outstanding. Realize that costs and parameters limit what can be done for historic landmarks, but carpeting needs updating, wall art (movie star pictures, etc.) could be updated. And...would be great to receive a handout of all the special floor 'tourist points' or history. Ended up going floor to floor to read everything and see everything.
Location The room was clean, but the electrical was scary. Best was hard and saggy in the middle. I amenities in lobby. Not historic just old and neglected.
Not a high end hotel but very quaint. Staff were very nice and the place was very clean. I will be returning!
Friendly staff, great pool, very well kept hotel. Please fix the ice machines that were broken on each floor. And a second working elevator would be great, the past two years I have stayed there only one worked.
The staff was very friendly and pleasant. The rooms were old and small. Yes, old building, charm, history, cool, but in the heart of downtown Phoenix in this modern age, you can update your buildings to keep the old charm and still allow for the enjoyment of modern conveniences. A hotel is a customer service oriented business and the building itself is crucial to the customers experience. Our room was very small but ok, could be livable with the right amenities. Very few outlets so tough to charge up computers and phones. None in the Bathroom! None! So I had to blow my hair dry in the other room. The bathroom had a huge sink but zero counter space. So what was the counter put my toothpaste, make up, hairbrushes and such on while i got ready? A toilet seat. Yup. No counter in the bathroom. It had the charm of an old place with the type of tile but so much of the tile was chipped and the paint peeling away from the walls it just felt old and dirty and run down. The drain in the shower didn't work well and I was standing in several inches of water while I showered. No room to room AC so you were at the mercy of how cool the people at the hotel wanted to keep the place. In AZ its 100+ all the time. I bet our room at night was 77 degrees or more. We were sweating and it made sleeping tough. We probably will opt for a more modern place just for the AC and clean feel next time and be willing to pay a higher price for it.
great location, friendly staff Bathroom
Location & price. I was given a room key for a room that was already occupied. Then, the guests on my floor (3) were loud all night, as if there was a party in the hallway outside my door.
