My husband and spent two nights here. The location is very convenient to Kierland shops and restaurants, and lots of others in Scottsdale. We requested a first-floor suite and #107 was on the west side. The living room was spacious as was the bedroom. We used the refrigerator and microwave. For the price, we brought our own paper towels, napkins...

Stayed four nights. Our room was not cleaned after the first night. Staff had gone home after we came back from the days activities. Disappointed after the first day but very good after that. Rooms were very nice and large. Room prices for the four nights were about $100 higher than normal rates. I think they jacked up the rates...

We stayed in AZ during a busy week and most of the other hotels had inflated prices. BW had the best value - good room, good breakfast and a great price. I would stay here again. The noise level of the small airport nearby might put some people off but we are early risers so it didn't bother us.
