Nine of us came out and booked 5 rooms for a long weekend "retreat," and overall, we had a really good stay. We had a Travelzoo deal that included massages, yoga and breakfasts, which was a good value.
Loved the small spa - great massages, nice teas, infused water, private outdoor hot tub, very friedly service.
Room had a super comfy bed, wonderful shower w/ rain and regular showerheads, black out curtain liners for great sleep.
Yoga was a great way to start the day - very relaxing and positve.
The views - there are beautiful views of the red rocks right behind the hotel.
Observation deck - the deck has great red rock views if you look straight ahead, but right over to your left is a big Safeway in a strip mall, which detracts significantly from the tranquility of the views.
The pool and jacuzzi - nice, relaxing, never crowded. Would have a good red rock view, except that they built the 2-story spa behind it -- seems they could have designed that better.
The food at Reds - not good; we had free breakfasts w/ our package, but the food was not good, and neither was the service. They took our drink orders, but my tea never arrived; I ended up getting my own from the self-serve dispenser.
The location - the location is good in that it's pretty central to everything, but not so good in that it's located right on the busy highway 89A, so you get the traffic noise.
Wait staff - very inconsistent. One day by the pool we ordered small plates, and service was fast and friendly. But our first night there, we ordered a bottle of champagne on the observation deck; the server brought up warm champagne in an ice bucket, said we should wait 10 minutes to let it chill; added himself a 20% gratuity, said he'd be back to open the bottle for us, and never returned.
Overall, the positives outweighed the negatives for me, and I did enjoy the hotel. Would I stay here again? Not sure; I might try somewhere new, a little further off the beaten path/highway.
