Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

Cons

  • No coffeemakers in rooms
  • Only one set of elevators in the main building
  • Views from rooms vary -- make sure to ask in advance
  • Fee for Wi-Fi

Bottom Line

This 250-acre Starwood resort and conference center is a luxury property ideally situated on the edge of Camelback Mountain in Phoenix's Sonoran desert. The massive property makes a striking first impression, with its lush green landscaping, waterfalls, koi ponds, and palms set against a rugged backdrop. Meanwhile, communal interiors have an old-world luxury appeal with marble floors and chandeliers. For activities, there is a USGA 27-hole golf course and pro shop, 11 tennis courts with various surfaces, and a winding cactus garden for beautiful sunrise walks. The nine pools have attendants who will regularly deliver towels and pitchers of ice water, and a spa with 24 treatment rooms. Comfortable accommodations include 643 rooms in the hotel, 119 casitas near Necklace Lake, and a number of residential-style suites. Guests have their choice among 10 restaurants and lounges, as well as easy access to both Scottsdale and Phoenix.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

A resort oasis on the edge of Camelback Mountain, close to Old Town Scottsdale

The Phoenician takes up a large chunk of prime real estate on the edge of Camelback Mountain -- an iconic symbol of Phoenix that is popular for hiking. The area is actually known for dividing Phoenix from Scottsdale, so guests have easy access to both for shopping, dining and cultural sights. A car is still needed to get around, but most sights are within 20 minutes or less, including the airport. There is a rental car desk on-site for single day rentals.

  • 18-minute drive to Sky Harbor International Airport
  • 4-minute drive to Scottsdale Fashion Square
  • 4-minute drive to Camelback Mountain, a popular hiking destination
  • 11-minute drive to Biltmore Fashion Park
  • 13-minute drive to the Phoenix Zoo
  • 15-minute drive to Pueblo Grande
  • 17-minute drive to downtown Scottsdale
  • 18-minute drive to Piestewa Peak, a popular hiking destination
  • 21-minute drive to the Heard Museum
  • 22-minute drive to Phoenix Art Museum
