Rated 4 out of 5 by Vermont2014 OK but Room for Improvement
We stayed here June 2014 and again recently in April 2015. Hotel is a short 15 minutes to Sky Harbor airport and the shuttle is free and regular, making for an easy place to stay before or after a flight.
As mentioned by others, the rooms are basic but ours have been clean. There is a fridge in the room which is handy. Our most recent stay was in room 408, which overlooks the pool area. The A/C was pretty noisy and worse there was a regular rattle from the refrigerator area that we couldn't get to stop. Also the conditioner container in the bath was empty.
The pool and pool area are small but nice and have always been clean. The hotel is near the RT 10 highway so there is some road noise. We've preferred the rooms facing the west parking lot which are screened from the highway noise, and have a view of the hills (as well as the parking lot!).
Sadly, the front desk staff recently was much less engaged and friendly than we experienced in June. No one offered to help with baggage. We did not get the usual "thank you for your loyalty" greeting we've come to expect as SPG Gold members. In fact, both times the front desk only grudgingly mentioned that we were entitled to a reward gift, and once argued with us about it. No one seemed to want to go out of their way to make us feel welcome.
On the plus side, JP the evening bartender was very friendly and social.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Micalla Dirty mattress pad, sticky floors
Had to get out of NYC before storm and needed a room for 1 night before our other hotel reservation was available in a Scottsdale hotel. We checked in to this hotel and immediately checked out; even without another hotel to go to on Super bowl Sunday. Would rather sleep in our rental car. Halls were dirty, room was dirty, mattress pad had a huge stain that you could see through the thin sheets and it looked like it was a fresh stain. Ugh - awful. And, exorbitant rate at that because of Super Bowl in Phoenix.
We luckily found a beautiful and clean room 30 minutes away at half the rate. No way I would stay in that hotel even for 1 night.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Dadof3 Just flew in from Boston
Very long day - finally got to the hotel - and they did not have the room available that I had booked a few weeks ago. They said that MAYBE tomorrow they would have the suite I booked. My wife and I are here for 7 nights visiting our new grandson. We were not excited about having to move. They gave us a regular room instead of the King Suite I reserved and offered to give us this much lesser room for a whopping $22 less that the rate I booked for the Suite. This room is musty and has a distinct odor and, as an added bonus is directly across from the ice machine - lucky us. Stay tuned regarding the remainder of our stay here. I'll be able to better rate the hotel after being here a week but it is a very unimpressive start. The shuttle driver from the airport was fantastic.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Steve83 Disappointing
Arguably one of the worst front desk staffs Ive ever encountered. Have they had any training? Do they know they are in the hospitality industry? Totally clueless.
The hotel is a remodel, situated behind a rundown gas station. But it is convenient to the exit ramps. Common areas look nice and modern, but the room left a lot to be desired. I was in a suite but it felt so cheap. The lighting, furniture, carpet, tile, refridgerator were all very basic and dingy. Hotel is a bad look for SPG.

Our check-in and check-out experience was GREAT! Upon checking in, it was as though they knew we were walking in. SUPER fast, convenient, and stress free check in!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Ciociaro Not worthy of SPG
Sad location. Indifferent staff. Heater/AC in room was louder than a commercial blender. The balcony window was left open. I spent the first ten minutes looking for critters or people in the room.
We were exhausted after a long day (checked in after 9pm) and didn't feel like arguing - as it felt it would have been with the staff about the room and condition we found it in.
The elevator (B) had a bullet hole in the door and the flooring in that elevator was not well maintained. We were directed to take this elevator as it was closest to our room.
Almost got locked out of the building when we attempted to use the stairs. The key card did not work to let us out of the area. Luckily one of us stood back and held the door to the stairs open or we might still be out there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jksr What an amazing upgrade!
Have known this property for years. Starwood has done a bang up job of upgrading it to their standards! Everything is beautiful and well-appointed.
Could use more help at checkin. Only one person at the desk on a Friday evening. He was working as fast as possible with a calm and friendly manner. But several parties were in line waiting for more than 20 minutes to check in.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Tucson2 Would not recommend
Stayed on the 5th floor. The entire floor smelled. No ice on this floor so had to go to the 4th, and it smelled much nicer. Room light kept going off and on during the night. No balcony. The employees were very nice and helpful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by chazne Look Forward to Another Stay
Even though we'd booked a room quite awhile in advance, upon arrival there was some confusion about the type of room we were promised. Within 20 minutes the staff resolved the issue in a friendly and professional manner and we enjoyed our stay very much. The bed was comfortable and we appreciated the "Green" option to forego room cleaning to have a bit of a discount on the next day's stay. Food at the restaurant was good and computers were accessible in the lobby.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Malou Nice try, but needs improvement
Stayed here for 3 nights on business. It's an older hotel that was recently remodeled. The remodel was done nicely given what they had to begin with. The feel is updated, but still old (room had an old smell to it). Staff was pleasant but was pretty slow to respond to my request...I had checked in at night and hopped in the shower. shampoo, conditioner, and body wash are all in a dispensers on the shower wall, but they were all empty, so had to continue my shower without these. The next morning before i left for my meetings I had asked the front desk to make sure that these were replenished. When I returned about 12 hours later, still not replenished. had to call front desk 3 times and waited for over an hour to get this resolved. Other than that it's an OK hotel for business travelers only.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Iaawe personal touch and attention to my need
My three days two nights stay were very short and sweet. I wish I could stay longer on this journey. I enjoyed the nice equipments at the GYM, the view of south mountain from my balcony, the palm trees by the pool, the friendly staffs, the shuttle service and the late check out at 4:00PM as a gold member of SPG. In addition, my room number was 621( I was born on 6/21) How cool that is! It was really a coincidence.
I am especially grateful for the personal attention from my favorite staff, Ms. Colleen Griffin who is so outstanding at customer services and guest relations. She provided me the personal touch to my need and made me felt home at Four Point, south mountain, phoenix, AZ during my stay.
I am pleased and highly recommend to stay at this hotel and I am looking forward to my next return in the spring of 2015!

Rated 4 out of 5 by CV134 Great hotel for the price
We typically stay at Westins, but we made an impromptu trip out to Phoenix and couldn't say no to the price of a suite here (who wants to sleep in the same room as their toddler!). You could tell the hotel was old, but attempts had been made to renovate and upgrade the fixtures/finishes. We had no complaints about the room at all, aside from maybe the awkward layout and the lack of a kitchenette even though there was counter-space set up to look like there should be one. There was a lot of unused/wasted space. The location of the hotel was perfect. It was close to food, shopping and family activities. The staff was friendly. The room definitely surpassed what we expected for $55/night. We would stay here again.

The staff allowed my early check-in at 8am. I booked shuttle bus for airport pickup and to a shopping center nearby. The driver (Will) was friendly and always on time.
Pool is clean.
Stable WiFi and free printer at lobby.
A few restaurants just cross street.

Rated 4 out of 5 by flatcreek61 Wedding stay
We got the King suite for a wedding. Nice space overall and plenty of room, beds were wonderful. We didn't care for the automatic lights from censors because they would come on during the night and interrupt sleep. We could not figure out how to disable them. The table was huge but very very wobbly. The 2nd day only one caffeinated coffee pod was left and 2 decaf which we don't drink and no sugar packets. Just a few minor things it was a nice place,

Rated 1 out of 5 by Cazzo1120 Stay away from this hotel.
The room smelled of old smoke. The light in the balacony stayed on all night and was irritating. Cleaning staff does not leave proper amount of towels or toilet paper. Why advertise "free" bottled water if only one bottle is made available for three paying guests?

Rated 3 out of 5 by Miner12 Staff is friendly, but...
It was my extended stay in Phoenix on my trip, so I did book the hotel in the last minute. Then I realized that I should have breakfast for two (AAA promotion) which was never offered at the front desk. I left the hotel early in the morning when check out, since I thought breakfast was not included.
I am SPG Gold, but I was neither recognized as Gold nor offered free drink/star points. I think it is a new hotel, so it needs staffs' training.
I do admit the room is satisfactory for business and leisure both. Bathroom may need to split toilette and shower, otherwise too small even for one guest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pam92 great hotel
We stayed here for the first time at the last minute. We were pleasantly surprised. Easy access off I-10, close to airport (about 6 minute drive), food was fantastic, good selection of local brews. Staff was friendly and courteous, room was spotless. I gave the nights sleep a 4 only because the bed was a little firm..but we slept well and had no complaints. The pool was out of order, but that was ok, with no kids, it wasn't necessary. We will be back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BenFromOregon Never thought I'd get such a nice room for this price
I chose the least-expensive room in this hotel and expected I would get what I paid for, but it's clean, looks sharp, and has a balcony! (I'm pretty excited about getting a balcony. As far as I can tell, every room has one.) This room has a fresh feel compared to the couple of other hotels where I've stayed in the last few years--hotels with much higher nightly rates than this--and I don't know whether to attribute it to the decor or to the recent renovation, but I like it in any case.
The two staff members I've talked to have been personable and happy to help.
The shuttle service is a lifesaver if you're traveling between here and the airport. It takes maybe one third as much time as the public transit system.
The neighborhood feels safe and I didn't hear any disruptive neighbors at night. There is a freeway right next to the hotel. The noise wasn't enough to bother me but I don't know about other folks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BTBT Nice location but room needs some renovations
The room was nice and clean, but had some minor problem during our stay. The internet reception was not good. We had to use it in the hallway. The bathroom sink was leaking slightly and the door could not be shut because of age. The AC controller made a weird and loud clicking sound at night, which bothered our sleep.
