Since my move out to AZ in 2000, the Camelback Inn Spa has been my favorite refuge. I have tried different Spa's in the valley, but have always come back. When my friend and I were in need of refuge I highly recommended my favorite spot to relax. We both booked services and planned a relaxing day by the spa. We first went to sit out in the outdoor quiet spot before our treatments began. The seat cushions were absolutely filthy. I assumed that the condition was due to little usage and had been neglected, not an excuse, but it was explainable. After treatment we went to an expensive but underwhelming lunch, then sat by the best spot in town, the pool, with its amazing view. So disappointed to find that the seat cushions here (the main area, which was populated for a Monday) was also in as poor condition as the other location. We didn't even want to lay on them. They were all the same. Not a storm that blew threw but cushions darkened, almost black from body oils. My friend had a very good theraputic massage, my facial was not good. Much better at Madison Avenue, cheaper, more convenient. What was nice was the hot stone massage that came with the facial. Very disappointed, my friend was surprised I had recommended it so highly. We will not be back, and that is really sad. I really loved this place.

Cons: Signs of the economy?
