Rated 3 out of 5 by Tiredoftraveling Addressing guest by proper title and television stations availability.
I have not been a "Ms" for many years and also worked many years to obtain my "Dr." title. It is on the credit card when I check in and would like to have it entered as such when I registered. I would l ike to be addressed by the correct title by the Front Desk. This would be more important for European guests who have a clear status definied on titles. Overall my stay was enjoyable, however, it was very frustrating to have limited choices with TV Channels. I like watching news channels and seeing ALL perspectives from political arguments. That there are 3 FOX Channels and CNN and no MSNBC was disconcerning. Also, the number of sports channels was disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VancouverDuo Another GREAT stay
Another GREAT stay at the Sheraton Airport Tempe. There are about a dozen other SPG properties in the Phoenix area, but we keep having great stays here, so we keep coming back. Everybody exceeded our expectations, once again. Excellent all around. From the restaurant lounge, to the pool/hottub, to the outdoor fire pit, to the fitness centre. It has all we are looking for in a stay. But what sets it apart for us is that it truly appears that each and every person (from the front desk, to airport shuttle staff, to the cleaning staff, and those working the club lounge) truly care about making your stay a good one. Thank you Sheraton Airport Tempe. We will see you again.

We always stay in this hotel (using our gold Starwood preferred guest points) when we are in Phoenix. We especially appreciate the staff, from the housekeepers to the manager, Skyler. They are all very pleasant and accommodating. Skyler was very helpful to us. Thank you.

Hotel is under renovations so improvements being made as this review is typed. Close to the airport but frankly, ended up taking a taxi as shuttle from the airport was horrible. Should not expect guests to wait 45 minutes for a pick up. For peace of mind, $16 fare to the hotel worth it. At check in, SPG acknowledgement but did not give instruction to the rerouted concierge. Room is ok. Pool very clean and clear with perfect temperature. Housekeeping very responsive. Breakfast buffet extremely overpriced for the limited food variety. Noteworthy: pancakes should be included in a buffet; not a separate charge. Dinner at the restaurant was a pleasant surprise. All food ordered prepared quickly, tasted delicious, and filling. As a side note, staff should offer assistance with luggage. Nonetheless, good value for the money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by jackmagic1 Don't stay here!!
There are plenty of hotels right next door that will offer FREE refrigerators and microwaves. I was denied even being able to pay for a fridge due to lack of inventory. Paid $120 night where my smart friends enjoyed a fridge, and microwave for half the price. Should you visit the restaurant, I hope you will not have the terrible service we had. If you see a crowd, don't even bother. They only have so many plates... I'll leave it at that...

Staff was very nice and responsive. Our room was not ready upon arrival but we did not have to wait very long. Front desk answered all questions quickly and friendly. Rooms were OK .....was told we had a view of the pool, but was really a wall and little silver of the pool if you stepped out on the balcony. The SPG membership was not acknowledge so was not asked if we wanted points or gift....had to ask.

Rated 5 out of 5 by wolfeman Enjoyed Our Stay
We have been staying at the Sheraton Phoenix Airport every spring for the last several years and hope to continue this tradition. It has been an excellent location to stay while we watch baseball. The staff works hard to care for our needs. Antonio in the the Fire + Spice Lounge provided exceptional service. Ester and Gloria in the club lounge worked very hard and were a joy to be around. I visited with the Chef "John" I believe and enjoyed his input. The pool area really added to our enjoyment. This and much more makes the Sheraton Phoenix our hotel of choice when we visit Phoenix for baseball.

The hospitality of the staff from the maintenance people to the front desk is simply outstanding. You cannot pass an employees without getting a smile and friendly greeting. Jannelle and Lindsay at the front desk never fail to be helpful in making your stay as pleasant as possible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jayjay Best Sheraton in Tempe
I chose this hotel for the club level so my husband and I could start the day with breakfast, be comfortable and stay connected to his work. We had some difficult family matters that brought us to town and at the last minute we had to make some reservation changes. Everyone was accommodating and helpful. We had some late nights before we could have dinner together and found the Fire and Spice restaurant to be delicious and convenient. Alright, surprisingly delicious.
Parking wasn't a problem after we realized our room was close to the elevator and the back door. This location has great access to many parts of the valley by freeway or city streets, This is my go-to Sheraton in Tempe Arizona.

Rated 4 out of 5 by chilielover7 This hotel works surprisingly well
Upon arriving at this hotel I must admit my first impression was disappointing - the hotel is older and the room decor and furnishing reflects this. But there are many redeeming features - the Fire + Spice Bar and Grill serves EXCELLENT food; the pool area is very comfortable and provides both shade and sun; the location of the Hotel is close to the airport with shuttle service provided; the Starwood Lounge on the 4th floor is comfortable providing good food and service; and the staff in the hotel are bar are very accommodating and friendly. Overall the stay proved to be very comfortable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Hhm12 Needs attention
Walked into 2 moldy smelly rooms. Had to get reassigned rooms. Still mildly smelly room I accepted since it was very late and I had to wake up early. Rugs in ll 3 rooms were totally awful. The shower head in the room I stayed had black moldy things on It. I asked them to bleach it out after my shower the next morning. Upon checkin I was told that I have to call a 800 number everyday so hat the ISP could ask mr questions about my computer to activate my connection. and was then given a wrong number (honest mistake) but imagine my frustration after the room debacle. Everything about his hotel was very " unmaintained". SPG please inspect this hotel and clean up this one. It is a shame on your brand.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Guest20135 Hotel is nice, but staffing needs development
Overall, the hotel was clean. I was frustrated that a refrigerator and microwave cost extra each day to have in room as these are normally basic amenities in hotels these days. I also had significant housekeeping issues during my stay. My room was left untouched more than once, despite calling before 8am and specifically requesting that the room be cleaned one day. Also had trouble having toiletry/towels replaced. The Fire & Spice restaurant wait staff was awful. Food was usually late, some orders were messed up, beverages couldn't be refilled without a significant wait, servers would disappear. That being said, Kyle provided top level service and I would highly recommend dining during his shifts.

I want to credit the general manager in charge during the recent fire event.
Her calmness during the emergency was excellent. She made sure everyone was evacuated and made sure there was water for everyone during the hour or so that we had to wait outside. Unfortunately, I did not get her name, but she was a tall, pretty girl with a tattoo on her wrist and a bandana around her neck. She should get an accommodation from those in charge of the hotel!

Rated 4 out of 5 by JustTeresa Changing Gold Member benefits
I choose to stay at this property mainly because I am a Starwood Gold Member. One of the benefits has been free upgrades which include the Club Lounge. This was my 3rd stay at this property. I was told at checkin that the upgrade to the Club Lounge was no longer free. When I questioned them I was told their manager said they were losing a lot of money by offering the upgrade to Club Lounge for free. I challenged the benefits of being a Gold Member. He said he could give it to me, this one time. I enjoyed the stay however may not choose this property again due to the loss of benefits.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Pam32 This hotel is tired and need of a facelift
I stayed at this Sheraton a few years back and recall being impressed with the level of service received, and the overall cleanliness and maintenance of the hotel. This visit was completely different. I am a Gold SPG member and was not given a room on the preferred floor. I was less than thrilled and asked for a better room. I was given a room on the "Club Level" which included a few more amenities but the room was still tired and dingy. The upside is that the room was quiet. I will be traveling to Phoenix an average of once/month, and I will not return to this Starwood property.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Ericwb May have been a bad week but...
I am normally very pleased with my Starwood hotel experiences. This visit did not meet expectations. Several things that could have been better: 1) Upon arrival I was given a room with two double beds when the request at the counter was for a King. 2) The television had to be fixed two times during my stay because the signal was not correctly coming through. 3) On day three of five the coffee maker stopped working. 4) The elevator was broken all week. I was on the third floor and made do fine but I could see that other guest were frustrated.
Good points... The gym was decent, and the pool was pleasant.
Things happen and these items individually are minor in nature.... Combined though it was disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ptprism My Wife Loves This Place!
...and believe me, she's really picky about hotels. But the first time we stayed here--about six months ago--she said, "You know, I REALLY like this hotel." That unsolicited remark came as a complete surprise to me, since she usually only talks about the negatives of where we stay. Anyway, when another trip to Phoenix came up, I decided to book it again. And made my wife very happy. She liked it even better this time. She likes the staff, the rooms, the cleanliness, the restaurant, the location. She likes it all. And, as they say, "If momma is happy, then everybody is happy!"

Rated 1 out of 5 by Shannon99 Poor Customer Service and Follow Thru
We checked in and our reservation for the correct beds was wrong. The gentlemen that checked us in basically had a take it or leave it attitude. When we got in our rooms there was gum on the floor stuck in the carpet. My other co-workers room there was a kleenex stuffed in the peep hole and you could tell both bathrooms hadn't been cleaned entirely. We had arranged for a shuttle as this hotel was featured in our training manual. They were not happy they had to take us. We will not be staying at this hotel ever and have contacted our training center to not feature this hotel.

Rated 3 out of 5 by hv12 A little disappointed
We were a little disappointed in this Sheraton in that it was pretty worn looking. Carpets quite stained-tiles cracked in the bathroom and the overall cleanliness was not that good. The location was pretty convenient in that it was easy on and off the expressway but not many places close by such as places to eat, drug stores, etc. You had to get in the car and drive 2-3 miles. The staff was very nice-just not enough of them. Once I had to call the front desk 3 times to get anyone to answer. The in house rest.'s were pretty good and the outdoor fireplace was great.

Rated 3 out of 5 by denny83 Food below par/ Wrong room charges
I ordered room service.. First, there was not a room service menu in the room. Second, once I found a restaurant menu in the hallway, the food that arrived was nothing like what was described and barely edible.
When I asked about it, the comment was, we're changing our menu.
Second, when I received my bill under the door in the morning, it had a charge that wasn't mine. When I checked out and indicated this.. instead of just dealing with it, I waited as the staff person went back to find the receipts and look through them. I have never had this at another hotel.

Rated 2 out of 5 by mjpeak Hotel has potential, but needs to be updated
As a frequent traveller, I usually get a sense of a hotel fairly immediately after walking through the doors. First they sent me twice to a room where my key wouldn't work, then I figured out it was because someone was already booked into that room! Back at the desk they informed me they would upgrade me to a King room due to my trouble...which would have been great except I had inquired about a King room upon my arrival and was informed all the King rooms were booked. Carpets were old and dirty, hotel needs a renovation.
Onsite restaurant was very good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Pinolillo Great location and good hotel
The hotel location (close to the sky harbor international airport) is ideal. My room was very comfortable. Fitness center was great.
My only issue with the hotel was with their restaurant, I ordered navajo duck tacos, and my food was cold, so I told the waiter, he took my food away, so they could re-do my order, but same story, food was cold (corroborated by the waiter). So I ordered something else. The waiter took 20% off the bill, which it was a nice gesture after waiting for a long time waiting for a long time while my colleagues ate their dinner.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TravelLots Second Stay
Our first stay was in February, 2013 and I preferred that interior room on the 4th floor over our recent stay on the 3rd floor exterior side of the building. When I made the reservation I requested a room on the quiet side of the building away from the road noise. It wasn't available when we checked in and our room's carpet was very soiled, didn't like that at all and was told later that evening the hotel was waiting for a less busy time to start a renovation on everything, beginning with the carpets. Will return as we like the staff and conveniences offered when we go out of town, park the car and ride a shuttle bus to the airport. The food in the restaurant was excellent with very good service. All hotel staff members very helpful and pleasant.

Rated 2 out of 5 by TG2013 Horrible rooms!
The lobby and bar area were beautiful! The rooms, however, were TERRIBLE! They look NOTHING like the pictures presented here. I was supposedly on the "club level", but the rooms were terribly run down. My windows had so much condensation there were puddles of water everywhere and the entire lining of the windows were full of mold! The curtains also had mold everywhere! The bathroom had moldy caulk and the tub was very dirty. There was dust all along the baseboards...NOT CLEAN AT ALL! Even the coffee creamer was curdled!
I saw staff members shoveling food into their faces after a business meeting had ended...not on a plate...hand over fist out of the serving trays~ I would NEVER recommend this place to anyone. EVER!
VERY disappointing for a Sheraton.
