Poker room was on point.
The quality and design of the decor is top notch. The location is convenient to shopping and activities in the area. The spa is on the 14th floor and provides spectacular views along with a very good steam room.
We stayed in an Executive King Suite, which had a balcony that provided us with a great view of Camelback Mountain and the southeast valley. The room was clean and well appointed.
Easier access to the West Parking Garage would have been nice, as we had to walk through the casino to get to the parking garage each time. There was no direct access from our hotel elevator to the West Parking Garage.
