Rated 1 out of 5 by JustaBr Below Expectations
I was expecting a higher level of service with this hotel and facilities. Between the price for rooms and restaurants, one would expect extras! I checked into my room and it was very stagnant and warm. The a/c unit does not project much air and doesn't make the room comfortable. I ended up having to change rooms at 1am due to waking up sweating from the hotness of the room. The room they moved me to, was on the outskirts of the building and was worse than the first, but in the upper 70s in the room and same a/c situation. I ended up not getting any sleep and having to work all day. I did approach the front desk, and they said they would have a better room for me when I returned and I requested a fan as well. They did accomidate me and put me in a center room, they also had the fan in there. They did give me a comped night and some restaurant credit. When you walk in this hotel it looks like its going to be really nice, but then you go to the rooms and its super dated. I suggest going to a lower level "newly" built hotel for a much better bang for your buck. I went into the ice room and there was a cup with liquid in it molding. I decided not to mention it as I had already been such a problem child. Just seems like this hotel is run down and not getting the funding to properly upkeep the hotel. I appreciate the efforts the staff did make to accommodate me, but why are your rooms so hot in the desert in the first place?

Rated 2 out of 5 by NealZ This hotel has gone downhill
I have stayed at the Sheraton Crescent about a half dozen times over the past couple of years. My room has always been on the Club Level, which I have found to be nice and somewhat typical for a Sheraton Club Level in a hotel built in the 1980s. Unfortunately, while this information was not disclosed as part of the reservation process under "special conditions," the Club Level was apparently closed. While the hotel did attempt to compensate by providing me and my guests (I had a second room for my parents) with vouchers for complimentary buffet breakfasts in the restaurant and a compliment appetizer in the lounge at Happy Hour, this still fell below the usual amenities which one would expect from a Club Level experience.
The regular rooms are quite worn and in need of repair. The furnishings are old, and there are not enough outlets for a laptop and iPhone at the desk. (Club level rooms have special L-shaped desks with extra built-in outlets.) The only outlet near the desk was controlled by the light switch, so the only way to charge a phone or laptop was to leave the light on! Epic fail.
Regular rooms have fewer bathroom amenities (no body wash, loofah sponge, mouthwash, shaving cream, or bathroom). I have grown accustomed to having these creature comforts, and was sorely disappointed when they failed to materialize. Since the hotel obviously knew that they weren't going to be able to accommodate me in a Club Level room (and knew enough to pre-block 2 rooms on the 3rd floor next to each other), it would have made sense for them to pre-stock the rooms with those items.
The high speed internet is abysmally slow. This is an ongoing problem, and I have experienced it before. While I get high speed for free as a Platinum guest, I would have been even more disappointed had I actually paid the $10/day for service which really isn't much faster than dial-up.
Food in the breakfast buffet is mediocre at best. Perhaps this is because they've had to put together something on a shoestring to compensate for the lack of a club floor. But they couldn't even keep an available stock of clean plates. (I wound up putting my dried out scrambled eggs in a cereal bowl.) There is also no indication anywhere telling guests that they can order toast/bread from the waiter. It was only because my father ordered some toast that we learned that it was included and complimentary. If they aren't going to include a bread and toaster station at the buffet, there should be a sign indicating that bread/toast is available from the waiter.
There were torrential rains over the weekend, and the balconies took on a significant amount of water. Drainage is poorly designed, so the balconies were unusable throughout the stay. I worry about mosquitoes and West Nile when I see that much standing water for a period of time.
There were 2 family reunions over the weekend, and both seemed to have guests who were a but louder and more rambunctious than typical guests, and their revelry seemed to last well past midnight. While I certainly don't begrudge people the opportunity to enjoy joyously spending time with their families, I must draw the line at screaming drunks running down the hallway well after midnight. Where was hotel security, and why was this allowed to happen? If this was happening on my floor, it was likely happening on other floors as well. And it wasn't a single isolated incident - it was systematic and ongoing. (Yet another reason why I like the Club Level and why I was disappointed to learn that it was closed for renovation; it tends to weed out some of the more rambunctious element, and tends to be reserved for business and frequent travelers.)
The entrance to the hotel from the parking garage remains a problem. There are a couple of steep steps without a center handrail (making it difficult for my elderly parents to ascend), and the door handle is directly in the afternoon sun, so the metal handle is usually too hot to the touch. I've actually burned my hand on that door handle.
I'm not sure whether I will return to this hotel. I've had reasonably good experiences in the past, but this stay was pretty awful.

The air conditioning does not work well in the rooms. I even had it checked by maintenance who commented on how hot the room was but assured me that it was working correctly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dez77 Staff is excellent, great location!
Your staff is wonderful! The Gentleman whom works as the Bartender/Server on weeknights in the Lounge was simply amazing. Also, Megan at the front desk and your Shuttle drivers were great as well. One was named Josh and another driver was a very very courteous young man whom took me to my office on a moment's notice. Whomever Manages the staff here does a great job. Thanks for making my stay enjoyable and for modeling customer service excellence!

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Everything was designed for my comfort. Although I had tons of work to do, the hotel staff met every request with a pleasant attitude. I am easy to please but I am the queen of complaining...I had ZERO complaints. Job well done SHERATON CRESCENT!!!

Love this hotel; have been twice in
two months. It is a very nice hotel if you have children. The location is really close to Castles/Coasters, they have a water slide on site and the pool is really large. The staff are very helpful and friendly. They have tennis courts, racquetball, a fitness room, Starbucks, and nice shade trees. I was impressed with all you get for the price. It is not a fancy Sheraton but my family loves it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jackie68 VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH OUR STAY!!!
when we booked this hotel, the selling point was the water slide and the pool side bar! The slide wasn't connected to the main pool, you had to go to a totally different part of the outside area, and then it wasn't open the entire time they would close it part of the day...WHY? As far as the pool side bar goes, it wasn't open at all!! They shouldn't advertise it if they are not going to have it open..I was very dissatisfied with this whole stay!! We had two rooms for three nights... The prices for their room service and on site food was way way to high as well..We will not bee returning to this hotel...

I truly enjoyed my stay at Sheraton Crescent. My suggestions are: 1) have a shower near the pool area 2) fix the Jacuzzi 3) clean the big pool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by FrankB Upgrade battle
I arrived around Thanksgiving 2012 and occupancy was extremely low that day. I asked if upgrade is available and was told that I can only be given an enhanced room as suites were sold out. in fact, I checked right before I arrived, the suites were available. The agent said they are all reserved. I contacted SPG and they confirmed that there are suites available and one of them should have been given to me. SPG person contacted front desk on my behalf. After their conversation, hotel person called my room to inform me that suite "suddenly" became available. And then, in fact, she is willing to put me up in presidential suite. Why would you lie outright that you are sold out if it is wide available? The suite was nice with a large but sadly shared balcony.

Not the best room...it had mold in the bath room and the ceiling looked filthy. The first room we moved due to road noise and the curtains were not hung and looked like they were falling down. I would not go back. The pool was never cleaned, leaves floating.

My family and I stayed at the hotel on 4-27-13 and got into our room late. The next morning we noticed the bed my kids slept in had what looked like blood stains on the sheets, when we told the person at the front desk they acted like it was no big deal.
Other than that the hotel was clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by katb90245 Always great service!
I have never been disappointed by a Sheraton. This particular hotel exceeded my expectations. The staff was excellent--bar, maid, front desk, waiters. Everyone we encountered was cheerful and helpful. First, the coffee--Starbucks, freshly brewed at each meal and left on the table for me. Next, the food--fabulous salads and burgers for lunch. Dinner at the bar, late at night, I think the kitchen stays open all the time. The dinner was rainbow trout. All great!!

Air Conditioner Noisey and not cooling.
Phone did not work to report problem.
I spoke to front desk physically due to phone problem.
I had to request that the air filter be replaced (literally black in color and particals falling out of it when removed).
By the third day the unit ran quietly and efficiently.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jen5 Awesome customer service
Heather at the front desk was very helpful and friendly after a long day of traveling it's nice to have friendly help, The bell service gentleman was also very friendly and kept apologizing for taking to long when he really only took maybe 6 min and that's cause he was with another guest. The only thing I did not like was housekeeping was rude and stared me down as I exited my room as if I was taking to long to leave. I checked out 1 hour before check out so that's what bothered me the most. Other than that I will definitely being staying at this hotel again.

What shocked us were all the extra charges that should be part of any stay::
1. Make Coffee free and all day long in Lobby, Switch over to DeCaf starting at 2-4PM. Cheap motels have this.
2. An Oxymoron is charging for a TollFree call. What ??
3. Install a microwave and Frig in each room. Even cheap hotels have these things.
4. $45.00/person for a Mexican brunch is crazy! $45.00 for two would maybe be fair.
5. There should be a FREE continental breakfast evry day. Cheap hotels do this.
Until you get these things fixed, I will not be staying there any more.

My starwood room was great. The staff was great. NO SHUTTLE SERVICE from AIRPORT to HOTEL. BANQUET service ran out of food and short of staff. No shop at the hotel to purchase small items you can't ck on the -plane. The gym was great, distance to shopping OK if you have rental car.

We chose this hotel because it has a terrific water slide for the kids, breakfast was included and it was relatively close to Sky Harbor Airport. Also, if you are a swimmer it's a rectangular size pool which makes it easy to do laps AND it's open at 5am!
Rooms were very spacious.

More elegant than I expected. Large room, high ceilings, marble floors, 2 balconies. Location convenient but lots of traffic noise. Sink drain was seriously clogged, no washcloths in room. Had to ask twice for green choice points, nobody collected the card from the doorknob. $10/day for Internet. Supposed to have free wifi in lobby but we couldn't connect to it. Bed & pillows were comfy.

This was one of the nicest hotels we have ever stayed in and especially for the Easter rate that we received. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. The "Monsoon Water Slide" was superb for the kids - the pool area and playground was awesome. We will be back.
