Fodor's Review

Original artwork by Arizona artists is displayed throughout the Westin Kierland, and the spacious rooms all have balconies or patios with views of the mountains or the resort's water park and tubing river, where kids can enjoy programs organized by age group. Kierland Commons, within walking distance, is a planned village of upscale specialty boutiques and restaurants. A leisure center specifically accommodates nonbusiness travelers. Of the eight restaurants, Deseo is

the star, presided over by well-known chef Douglas Rodriguez, regarded as the inventor of Nuevo Latino cuisine.

a disaster save for the massage

Staff, while polite, could not get the package details correct and kept wanting to bill us extra for what was included. Raging party next door for three hours and no help from the staff despite two pleas for relief. Never could get a manager to talk to me. The spa massages were excellent however, so if you go to Scottsdale stay somewhere else and patronize the spa independently.

I liked staying with Bradgelina

We stayed at the Kierland in July - really hot- and spent mucho time at the pools, including the swim up movie. We had lunch poolside several days with great service. I thought the food was great and we enjoyed drinks at both the cowboy bar and the lobby. The hotel is nowhere near the highway so I'm confused by the other comment. Desert, golf course, and shopping area maybe - we had desert - but no highway! Spa was a great experience because I

know that Epicurean is a top of the line product for skin care and they did a wonderful job. It is VERY HOT but you get to run the AC as much as you want!

Very nice hotel with good service. Our room overlooked the pool, and had a balcony. The amenities were just basic for a Westin, but everything is fairly new. The lounge/reading chair in the room was not at all comfortable for relaxing or sitting! Just had to use the "heavenly bed"! We stayed 5 days, and just for R&R! The spa is overpriced, but they usually are in these places. The food is average on the property, and all but one server was

very pleasant! The concierge told us that they had a Sunday brunch on the premises, but it only amounted to a "breakfast bar" with a few items...not a brunch. When we explained we were looking for something a little nicer, she told us to go to the Cheesecake Factory...go figure! She insisted they had a "brunch" and they basically had a breakfast menu. Kierland Commons has a lot of typical shopping and is across the street. The restaurants include the usual chains, and unfortunately only a couple local places! The "limo" taxi from the hotel to the airport was $45. Other than that, the hotel is pleasant, and the staff seems to want to make your stay enjoyable.

A Lazy River to Soak up the Heat

Went in early June when the daytime temps were hitting 102. Fortunately, the adult and family pools and especially the lazy river kept things bearable. Resort is relatively new, well maintained. Restaurants have great fare, but staff are not always attentive. Rooms were typical and amenities were nice. Resort across the street from Kierland Commons - upscale mall, which was nice for some distraction and restaurants.
