The rooms are great, spacious, all the amenities you'd expect from a top-notch resort. The restaurants are great as well, expecially Mary-Elaines. Don't have a wedding here, though. We looked into it, and it is just ridiculously overpriced! They don't give you very much attention, and pretty much just shove you off to the side, even though you're paying a LOT of money. For the same money, you can go to a number of the other equally as wonderful resorts in town, and get a much better wedding. The wedding food would be not very good, and you'd be in an area where many strangers (other guests) can witness your wedding. And no good views! What a rip-off. But if you're just wanting a nice place to stay while in Phoenix, the Phoenician is very nice, and worth a stay. It's also close to downtown Scottsdale, which is where all the restaurants, shopping, and bars are.
