Spent 3 nights at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess for my wife's "milestone" birthday - great time. Incredible Christmas decorations - very impressive. Service was outstanding, great staff attitudes throughout the hotel. Stayed in one of the newly renovated rooms by Sunset Beach pool - very nice, highly recommended. It was pretty expensive for us, but we'd do it again. Got...

What really makes this hotel is the brilliant way the Fairmont ushers in the Christmas spirit. We celebrated using the Bar reception area by the fire pits and it was a near perfect location and vibe. The food was average but it was bar food. The decorations and holiday vibe is what makes this hotel as the rooms are average...

While the outside is pretty, the rooms are rundown, outdated, overrated, and over priced. The restaurants are the same. Wouldn't waste my time/money eating there. I walked or got transportation to the mall and surrounding restaurants for food. To have someone take you two miles down the round is $15, ridiculous. No airport shuttle.

A great resort with a pleasant staff. Large rooms. Fire places and fire pits throughout make a nice touch. Drinks are very expensive at the bar but it is a nice atmosphere. Nice central location at the resort. My only minor complaint is that the servers and bartenders in the restaurants seemed like they were doing you a favor by...

Well we headed down to Scottsdale for a Continuing Ed class and a little getaway. The conference was being held so we figured why not stay there and avoid the travel to and from. So we booked the room along with the conference even though the room was pricey. At least we would have first class service and accommodations. We...

I stayed in the "D" building. That should tip you off that it's a huge property, so go to the website first and make sure you're ok with staying in a small city. It's got that over-the-top Texas feel in terms of scale, but it's very pretty. The Disneyland description fits at Christmas...place is lit up and well know for...

I went to the fairmont on their annual tree lightening ceremony and it was beautiful. However the enjoyment of the evening took a turn when dealing with the service at the bar. Not even sure what the name of the place is but it's the beautiful outdoor bar right behind the lobby. My girlfriend and I decided to go over...

After a less than exemplary experience last fall, I returned for two nights at the start of the Christmas season in a "Gold" room. My stay started on a high note, with a very warm welcome from the valet staff, who escorted me to the Gold lounge for check-in. Staff in the lounge could not have been nicer or more...
