Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Cozy, casita-style rooms feature French doors that open onto private balconies or patios
  • Rooms have iPod docks and flat-screen TVs
  • Suites all have private swimming pools
  • 6 restaurants and cafes, including BLT Steak and Starbucks
  • Big, free-form pool has amazing views of Camelback and Mummy Mountains
  • 36 holes of championship golf
  • Modern fitness center features cardio equipment with individual TV's
  • Spa features a steam room and plunge pools

Cons

  • Fee for Wi-Fi
  • Bathrooms need updating
  • Nothing within walking distance

Bottom Line

W Marriott Camelback Inn, which dates back to the 1930s, is located in the upscale Paradise Valley section of Scottsdale, surrounded by tall desert palms, cacti, and rolling mountains. The styling of the Southwest is evident throughout the resort -- starting in the lobby, which has warm leather chairs, dark wood floors, and a big fireplace. The casita-style rooms feature log-beamed ceilings, French doors that open onto a private balcony or patio, and decor inspired by the desert surroundings. Seven suites on the property each have their own pool. But bathrooms need updating, and the accommodations overall lack the nuances of other properties in this class, such as the Sanctuary. Guests will find all the features of a large resort here, however, including six restaurants (one is BLT Steak), two 18-hole golf courses, spa, contemporary fitness center, free-form pool, and Jacuzzi.
