Rated 5 out of 5 by MAwestcoast Another great stay at the best resort in Chandler!
What can I say from the very smooth check-in to a upgraded room and all hotel staff very nice and friendly! I have stayed here multiple times and every time I am in AZ I will stay at this resort. Played the Troon North golf course again with great conditions! Breakfast was great and though I did not get a chance to use the pool I love how clean and fun it is with the water slide! I will be back fro sure.

Rated 3 out of 5 by jgbond13 Great View
Great views from the hotel and attentive staff. Outstanding staff in dining facilities. Clean rooms. Preferred members will have rooms with great views but sun will cause them to be warmer than average.
If you are going for a conference, be prepared for a long walk from room to conference area. Also, there are 3 WiFi zones which will cause problems if you walk between conference area, lobby area and guest room area.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Longear Good for Motorcycles?
Great place to go that is out of the way. They do limit Motorcycle parking out front and do not supply old towels to wipe off the windshields Etc. they say you can use the paper towels in the bathrooms? Besides parking around the side this place was nice, beds were great and it is easy to get in and out of, no gravel. You will have a $20.00 resort fee, but worth it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JordanJ Great location, but surprise charges left a bad taste in my mouth
Beautiful facility, not as nice as some of the SPG resorts I have stayed at, but still very nice. *VERY* long walk to our room but only because they put us close to the spa because we were using the spa on Saturday.
Room was nice, bed very comfortable, view very nice. Phone handset didn't work so i had to use the corded phone which was not a big deal. The thing that *REALLY* bothered me was that when I checked out there was 40-50$ in unexpected miscellaneous fees Resort Fee + Parking Fee. On top of that, when I called to question them I was treated very rudely and informed that I had just not read the sign.
I am not a "cheap" person, I have no problem paying for nice meals - buying treatments at the spa etc, but I felt completely Nickel and Dimed here which is why I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.
Shame because its in a great place for little weekend getaways.

Rated 3 out of 5 by KT33 Nice stay, plan on extra little expenses
The hotel staff is fantastic! I would recommend this hotel on that alone. The spa was very nice, and the food was exceptional!
However, everything has a cost - from internet use, to the fitness center, to playing the piano (yes, I was told that it was $13 for me to play the piano downstairs, where there was no one around). I was shocked and surprised that there wasn't a thing that was included in the stay here.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ThermalMan Nice Stay, but problems with the bill
The stay was nice. Weather was great. I attended a business function. Staff was courteous. Very long walk to the room.
My only real complaint is that I received a bill for the honor bar which I didn't use and it was locked during my stay. It's a hassle to have those disputed and removed when it should be quite obvious they should be on my bill when I didn't request the key to unlock the bar.

Rated 4 out of 5 by H2014 Enjoyable stay
The hotel was very inviting on arrival - reception was efficient and the room was excellent. Overall the staff was good - exception breakfast service was on the slow side. Our second morning breakfast-server was more interested getting the 15% tip included in voucher. We found this awkward.
Still enjoyed staying with you.

Rated 3 out of 5 by PAZO Sleeping room internet needs work
I had no internet connectivity in my room:
1-Weak wifi access point
2- Outdated hotel router
3- Weren't set up for Macs.....?
These were all the conclusions of your IT dept.
I had no problem accessing wifi in the meeting planner's conf. room.
I really like everything else about the hotel BUT please put some money into your IT upgrades!!!
P.s. Thanks for the extra points but I would have rather had wifi.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BusinessGuru Great for an intense business conference, not a lot of entertainment features
I attended this Resort for 2 nights for a business conference of 500 plus industry professionals. The Wild Horse Pass is a great meeting venue, but lacks access and opportunity for families seekiing family friendly entertainment. Great for meetings no distractions, only two restaurants on premises.so any sight seeing must be done via car rental or shuttle to a nearby native american casino. ,

Rated 3 out of 5 by kaz119 Not as good as I was expecting
Room cleanliness was the major issue. reported the issue to management who contacted housekeeping. the problem was somewhat taken care of, but not to my standards. For 2 nights we were plagued by mosquitoes in the room. Had to have the room sprayed twice. Some staff had an attitude of couldn't care less about customer service. The best feature of the hotel was the spa, the staff were very helpful here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alan100 mostly excellent
clean, great environs, excellent food and facilities; main drawback: too expensive, w extra fees for many things that other hotels include; the food at the restaurants and gift shop was excellent, but approx 2-4 times as much as out in town; in-room movie cost $17!; wireless internet $13/d; maybe others are used to this level of expense, but not us. And food for conference breakfasts was only ordinary.

Rated 5 out of 5 by isachickvic don't miss this experience
This was my second visit to Wild Horse Pass. I liked it so much the first time that we stayed there the evening before attending a conference in Phoenix. What stood out for me, this time, while I was waiting for someone to assist me at the front desk, a valet came over to see if they could assist - and indeed they could. I really appreciated their effort.
Lovely grounds, great food and fun pool slide.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Linda13 retraining the hotel desk staff
Checked in after a very long flight from the East Coast.,Upon arriving it was pouring rain
when my..sister and I arrived at the Resort soaking wet 3 hours late,,we were not greeted at all by the desk clerk instead he scowled at me. He told me what a bad night he was having and guess what they had cancelled my room. Really? Finally, after a very uncomfortable time I was finally checked in ,
It was very unfortunate that Brandon the agent decided to put his problems out there instead of dealing with me the guest.in a welcoming manner.
The next morning I spoke to Sean the Asst Mgr. He could not have been more helpful a true professional.
Since. he made right with everything I was able to enjoy my 8 days at the Resort which is my absolute favorite place to go
The agent checking me out did not even inquire about my stay..I was surprised bad customer service.
The door men absolutely fantastic!

Fantastic property. Clean. We'll maintained. Like new. Bar staff seemed overwhelmed on Sunday when Kai was closed, Ko'sin was fully booked, and many had to eat in the lobby. Young lady at Starbicks Saturday morning less than happy to be serving me. Although I booked our room months in advance, we ended up with a room with no view, not an SPG room. Overall a wonderful mini-vacation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Veronica Wireless Internet weak in room
Very poor wireless internet service in the room - it was so weak I found it difficult to work. It kept dropping off or diminishing in strength. I checked out at 6 AM and went to Starbucks to be able to do my work. Later the hotel sent me a note apologizing for the poor service. They need to upgrade and improve wireless service if they want to have business customers. We need to work from our room.

Rated 2 out of 5 by aprilsammy This hotel needs to be upgraded
There was no wifi in the room unless you paid for it. My hot spot device did not work. You had to pay to use the fitness center. The room was dark unless you opened the draperies on to the parking lot. The layout was circuitous for the meetings. I had to ask 2 times to have cobwebs/spiders removed from elevator light. Remote on TV had to be replaced. Remote was terribly slow. Bad odor in hallway.

Rated 3 out of 5 by NYE2012FireAlarm NYE Prank or Real Fire
We typically do not go out for New Year's Eve but decided to this year with the stipulation that we would stay where ever we went out. We decide to go to Wildhorse Pass and dance at Aria. We got to the room and changed for dinner and then went straight to the club afterwards. We had a great evening and got back to the room and fell asleep around 3a. At 4a, the smoke alarm sounded. This was not a short buzz but went on for several minutes. We stepped outside our room but no one else was around. I would expect staff to advise guests to whether it was a real emergency or not! We ended up walking the halls for a bit and determined on our own that there wasn't an emergency! We finally got back to sleep around 5. Needless to say this was a short night! Smoke alarms are disorienting no matter where you are but especially someplace that is not yours and to not know if there is true danger or not!

Each and every employee that we met were delightful and always helpful. Your staff had great personalities, and were always very cordial and pleasant. We stayed at the Wild Horse Pass Resort for one week while preparing for the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl. I was impressed by each and every person that worked there. They were all amazing. I will definitely stay there again when given the chance.

My wife and I were recent guests at Sheraton Wild Horse. We enjoyed our time at the resort. Staff, pool and amenities were great! The only slight negative was that the walk from the parking lot to the room was a little longer than anticipated. However, I would not hesitate to stay here on a future trip. Walking trails are great and the golf course is beautiful! Overall, a great place to stay!

Rated 3 out of 5 by stxkate Horrible Room
The staff was friendly and wonderful at providing outstanding service. The room left much to be desired. I am a Platinum level spg member. I was given a room far, far away from the main facilities which did have a slight mountain view but was spoiled by the storage tanks and barns I had to overlook. The grout in the bathroom was dirty and mildew was growing in a corner near the shower.

My family enjoyed our time at the hotel. The hotel felt about mid capacity and that was nice as we didn't have to fuss to reserve chairs pool side. Staff was very friendly. The only thing I would caution is that they add gratuity to any/all restaurant bills... even for carry out at the restaurant which I found to be odd.

I love this property. We stay once a year and I'm always pleased. This was my first time staying on a holiday weekend, 4th of July. It was very busy. The common areas were crazy at times. But the staff seemed to be on top of things. The long lines seems to move fast and quality of service was still there. Aji spa, I visit regularly (love the locals programs). Can't wait to return.

Rated 1 out of 5 by veterantraveller Poor Service
Paid full rate due to busy Valentines weekend. Unfortunately had a terrible experience with hotel staff knocking on my door 3 times in one morning attempting to clean the room. After the first knock I told the attendant through the door that I'm still sleeping. About an hour later the second knock and then I heard the door opening and someone saying "housekeeping". I said "still sleeping". Final knock an hour later and same response...same result. Had to call front desk to notify of the multiple intrusions. On another note, when I asked for 2 bath robes it took 30 minutes to arrive. And he apologized for having to give me one bath robe that didn't have a belt to tie closed. One of the bath robes was white with Sheraton logo on it and the other (without belt) was just white no logo making me think it belonged to someone else and was pulled from lost and found. We did not use that robe and was just happy our stay was almost over.

The service we received at the hotel was some of the best we have ever had. All of the staff were very friendly and there to meet our needs. We really appreciated Gregory's help with transportation, spa appointments for my wife and eating recommendations. The only negative we had was the a/c in our room did not cool well. They came and looked at it, but could not get it fixed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MFlorida LOVED IT! Just Perfect!
Just what we were hoping for! Wanted to experience a vacation in the desert, but not so isolated that there was nothing nearby. This is a really unique location in the middle of the desert . . . but just outside of Phoenix! The resort is absolutely beautiful on the inside with Native American decorations, but from the outside it has simple southwestern architecture and is not ostentatious. Rooms very modern, clean and comfortable. Service was outstanding. We liked that hotel was designed to fit in so naturally with surroundings so really felt we were out in the desert and not near a big city! Very nice spa and fitness center with it's own pool . Pleasant 2 mile hiking trail into desert is good for late afternoon walks. Liked that resort is just a few minutes from I-10, so when we wanted to leave, we could easily get to restaurants and other places around Phoenix. Four days was not enough, would love to go back for more. Had breakfast in the dining room every day . . . we tried some "southwestern flair" breakfast choices on menu that were all delicious. Also had the brunch buffet on Sunday that terrific. Overall very happy with stay!
