A great place to meet friends for a happy hour drink or two on the patio with a nice view of the resort grounds. Appetizers include a couple of interesting sushi options in addition to items like egg rolls and Parmesan fries. We did not have dinner here this time but have previously with excellent service and fine quinine.

I stayed here on business for several days and would love nothing more then to come back again with the family. This place is massive and i actually got lost at one point. Staff are friendly and helpful and the facilities are great. The down side, no free coffee in the morning and long walks.

Overall a really good hotel experience. The hotel itself "does the job" (good room, great sleep etc.). However what really showed the value of the hotel was that first they gave me a room over the restaurant. When I asked for a room away from the noise, not only did they deliver - they also followed up with a call...

This place is wonderful. Big, but not to big. The pool area is amazing, and the outdoors are great. Inside is just as nice. Rooms are average, but all have an outside "patio". Location however, is about 30 minutes outside of downtown Phoenix, so if you don't have a rental car, uber-ing there every time can get expensive.

I've stayed at this property 3 times over the last 6 years for a large annual conference. It is a great comfortable property with lots of options for meeting space, both indoors and outdoors. The hotel rooms are nice and spacious, the property is beautiful and the common areas and meeting spaces are some of the nicest I encountered. I...

This is in my top five best hotels. This particular JW Marriott is spectacular. Grounds are perfectly manicured lots of flowers blooming, palm trees they have the best lobby. Good restaurants on ground and a amazing lazy river pool. I upgraded to the Griffin club, it's a 21 and older club it was well worth the money. It had a...

I went for an event and spent some days at JW Marriott in Phoenix and I can say :What a great hotel! The pool is amazing, the event was attended by 1600 persons but you did not feel "so many people" around. The gym is great and large enough. Great experience.

Staff were very helpful and understanding, also the food here was good, and liked their parks and recreation areas. I would recommend it if you are visiting Phoenix for pleasure. Also, loved their Lobby, it's really big and the lighting there is balanced.

This place has the best amenities!!! Of course you have the lazy river and you don't have to bring or rent floats. There are refrigerators and coffee makers in the room. The poolside drinks are very expensive but did I mention this was a splurge? Beds are super super comfy. Do it!
