I almost hate to give this place a rave review, because I can tell this is a place that is going to take off. We are from MKE visiting Phoenix to see our Brewers, and we dont really like staying at the chain hotels, where everything is blah, and you get a watered down omelet in

Thanks to Daron, we had a wonderful stay at your hotel. The staff is welcoming and helpful. It was easy with kids, they can enjoy going in the pool while the adults relaxes in the hot tub!! And to eat we just go downstairs to Tranquilo, pretty awesome guacamole!!

The hotel is in an area where buildings are being torn down and under construction. It is an old concrete building that has been painted and decorated to have a trendy feel. The doors to the room look over the pool area and had a motel-type feel. I was concerned that it might be

This place was not our scene. We checked in and got to our room and stood there just hating it. Luckily we were able to contact the third party site we booked through and they contacted the hotel and we got a full refund and just left. It’s an old apartment building remodeled

Good afternoon Lauren, thank you for your detailed feedback! We apologize for your less than satisfactory stay with us. We are currently working on plans to remodel our rooms, we understand that our decor is not everyone's cup of tea, and we appreciate your feedback! We also know that our property can be noisy at times, we are a busy place with lots of visitors. I am glad to hear that our front desk agents were very nice and accommodating, i will be sure to share this review with our staff to congratulate them on a job well done! And yes, we do charge a $20/night Hotel Service Fee, but that always includes unlimited snacks at the front desk, as well as water and soda, your pool passes, and long distance calling if needed. The $10 parking fee is optional, and our lot is monitored by our Nest cameras and patrolled by our staff multiple times a day. Again, I am sorry we did not meet your standards, but we hope you give us another chance in the future. Please feel free to reach out to me with any other feedback! My email is rai@goclarendon.com. Have a great day!

Spent four nights during a getaway with a friend....clean place. I expected and appreciated the creative and unique design of the property and it was pretty much truth in advertising + Trip Advisor reviews. Beds were okay but they missed the mark on lighting in the room and

Not sure but a call to the hotel will generally allow and 18 or older to check in with proper instructions. I called several hotels during my son's college years so he could stay to cover sporting events.

Is pool open year-round?
The pool remains open all year- call the hotel to make sure it’s not closed for maintenance.

There is no concierge, however, the front desk staff is very helpful and friendly. The Uber ride was around $15, a short easy trip. Hope this helps!!

"Room with pool view was quiet."
"Look for a different hotel"
"Ask and make sure the Sky Deck is open - - it was closed when we were there for remodeling."
"All rooms seem easily accessible and quiet. We chose a room on the first floor to be near to the pool & spa."
