Rated 5 out of 5 by athomeinAZ A stunning hotel experience
Diana was fantastic at check in, asked questions that resulted in refining my needs so that I ended up in the perfect room for my stay! My group was hosting an event that brought in folks from all over the U.S., and everyone was blown away by the beauty and luxury of this facility. On top of that, the staff was so pleasant, cheerful, and helpful. Even to each other! What an amazing experience at a stunning hotel/spa/resort!

Rated 5 out of 5 by slogan85 Beautiful Desert Hotel with AMAZING Service
I LOVED this hotel and I most certainly will be returning. I love all of the Native American elements incorporated into the space: the sounds, the smells, and the artwork all pay homage to the Pima Indians.
I also loved the room, it had a balcony situated near the river and I sat out at dawn and dusk to hear the sounds of the many desert animals.
Mostly, I loved the service. The staff was friendly, courteous, attentive and quick to address any need one could have. The service provided by this hotel was superb.
Every time we stay in Arizona, it will be at the Wild Horse Pass Resort & Spa.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Linda13 Exceeded expectations!
This is my very favorite resort anywhere . I stay every summer. This trip was special I was getting married. We had family from all over come in. When I first checked in the floor and room I love was not available . The agent put me way at the end of the wing. Expressing my disappointment I went to the room. Within an hour David the manger had my room changed to what I requested. Fantastic customer service .He could not have been more accommodating . My guests all checked in and we were all together . Unbelievable !
I had a glitch with credit card and needed to remove the hold. Kyle from accounting on a Saturday took care of it with a not so
accommodating credit card company . Can't thank you all enough for a wonderful week.. Looking forward to next stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RDWPA Still the finest resort in Phoenix area for business or pleasure
We have stayed at the resort many times and keep coming back for the great environment and friendly service. This trip was a spur of the moment decision to get away and unwind. Not knowing if we could book and stay the same day we called and talked to Trisha in guest services, Trisha assured us we would have a room available for our arrival later the same day. This is an example of the service we know we will get staying here.

Rated 3 out of 5 by vero87 Needs some improvment but overall had a great time
We stayed at this resort for the 4th of July weekend and overall we had a good time. The activities for the kids are fun for them and its nice to see them get excited for the next big even.
My biggest complaint is the service at the pool. It was very slow trying to get drinks ....even when going up to the bar it was slow service. I feel like they could have more staff or service serving at least drinks for the kids and alcohol for the adults. On top of that you get automatically charged 18% gratuity.... no nice especially with such very slow service.

We had a great experience at this hotel. All staff was very professional and courteous. We had a great dining experience at Kosin and the service could not have been better. Sharlyn took great care of us and even helped us plan our day. Ask for Sharlyn!
Room service was also prompt and professional. Dave brought us breakfast to our room on Sunday am and it could not have been better service.
Great pool service from Jordan!
Overall we had a great family time. Close to outlet malls and many restaurants.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MS05 So disappointing
We are SPG Platinum members and have stayed at SPG hotels and resorts for years. We come to Arizona often and we have choices of the resorts to stay in. We love the Westin Kierlands and the Westin La Paloma but have also stayed here at the Sheraton Wild horse pass. This time we came for a family reunion and for our wedding anniversary for the 4th of July and had 3 rooms. We were thrilled to be upgraded in our room, and we were excited for our long weekend vacation, but then encountered so many issues!. The sofa bed my kids slept in had no bedding and there was none in the closet either, and although we asked, none was delivered until I grabbed some from housekeeping on the third day. The mini bar we were hoping to use as a fridge never got cold. We were graciously given tickets to the Rawhide festival on the 4th, but when we called for a hotel owned shuttle and were told they would be right over, they didn't arrive for over a half hour. Tired screaming hot babies- we waited and the driver showed up just as fireworks were starting. We were told by a hotel dressed valet employee that we could have taken a cab and that driving wasn't in his job description! He pulled the van over to watch the fireworks and we complained and told him to keep going. Our fireworks watching ended up being from the driveway as they finished! The hotel renovation began on Sunday and they removed all the bar couches and chairs hours before the Women's World cup finals! Why would they start renovation on the Sunday of a holiday weekend? We walked all the way down to the front lobby with kids and strollers to be picked up by my husband only to find it curtained off. The lobby was relocated and we kept getting lost from our remote room and there should have been signage all over the hotel pointing to the new location. The music was pleasant at the pool but the service wasn't attentive. As we were eating buffalo wings, we asked for napkins for our messy hands and were told that the resort had used them up all weekend and they were out! The lack of festivities around the pool was disappointing. We were hoping for the festive holiday atmosphere that we usually had at the Westin Mission Hiils, Kierlands or La Paloma. We didn't have enough wrist bands for our whole group and we had 3 rooms, but actually the water park area was disappointing too. Those with the bands walked over and it was closed. Housekeeping never came in the morning while we were at breakfast, but usually in late afternoon while we were back in the room. When I complained to the front desk they apologized that it had happened, but that's it. It was such a disappointment that the service and attention was so lacking. We had a choice of resorts to visit and chose this one. It's a lovely hotel but they need address some issues.

Rated 1 out of 5 by guestwho Horrible customer service
We stayed for Fourth of July weekend. They had great activities for the kids. However, customer was so bad. When asking questions about room service we were met with rude and impatient resistance from the staff. They kept forgetting things we ordered and then took 40 minutes to bring it to us after we brought it to their attention. Customer service was horrible.

We had a great weekend at the Sheraton Wild Horse Pass. It is a beautiful resort on the edge of the desert, peaceful and relaxing. The hotel is first class, and the entire staff from check-in, to restaurants, concierge, etc. was first class as well. We will be back. Don't miss the pork wings at Kosin.......delicious!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by MM103015 Avoid!
I am not looking for a response, for anyone to reach out to me, or to further explain myself after this email. I simply think that someone should be informed so guests don't have to go through what I did. If you checked your website, as well as Yelp reviews, you would see what these problems have been occurring for the entire duration of 2015.
Hanyo poolside service is just awful. There is no other way to put it. The bartenders, the waiters, the towel boys are all lazy, uncaring, and neglectful. I think it is a complete joke that gratuity is added to all tickets when it's like pulling teeth to get any service. The first waiter was slow. Then he "forgot" to bring me my change from my bill. I had to ask the new waiter for him to bring me my change. That made me feel awkward, and like I was being the rude one. Then the new waiter completely ignored us, even when I put an entire row of flags up to get his attention. I went to the bar, ordered a drink, drank the entire contents, used the restroom, all while the flags were up and ignored. The area was not crowded. I took that time to go up to the front desk and complain. Time out from my vacation. Time away from relaxing. My husband works 80 hours a week, I run a small business, and we can't even go to an "upscale" resort and be served a drink. At that point I decided that I didn't care to spend any more of my hard earned money at the pool.
The shuttle should have an expected schedule. The idea of it is nice. Waiting 45 minutes for it, and having the casino valet call the driver twice, apologizing to us for what is not his mistake, is not nice. And God forbid that the driver be pleasant. The first one was talking on her cell phone to her kids the entire way. Does that seem safe? Apparently she is following the criteria to work for Sheraton. I'm seeing a pattern here.
My husband ordered room service around 6:30pm. The food was good. But I did not appreciate coming back to the room at 11:30pm to see the plates still sitting there on the floor. To me that just screams, "roach attack"! But what should I expect when our room had very obviously been half heartedly cleaned? The sheets and comforter weren't even on straight when we arrived.
The icing on top of the cake was the fire alarm situation. That really should have been handled in a more professional manner. I expect to have something like that told to me when I'm booking my reservation, or at the very least at check in. The front desk informed me that they did not receive the information until 6pm the previous night. What would have been acceptable (if that is even true) would be to leave a recorded message on all the room's telephones. If I would not have left the room at 9:15am to get a newspaper I would have never seen the notice that was at the front of my door. I would have been inappropriately scared at that point. We rushed to check out just to avoid the screeches. Yet again, no relaxation to be had at The Sheraton at Wildhorse Pass!
When checking out I saw an error on my printed receipt. The Hanyo Grill had charged us for a bill that we did not owe. We paid for every single item in cash. Another way to get extra money and extra gratuity out of us it seems. Disgraceful. Luckily, the clerk promptly took it off our bill. Let's see if it shows up on our bank statement. As you can see, I have no trust or faith in your institution. After 3 years in a row of stays at your hotel, I can confidently say that we will never return to your property.
I was supposed to have the manager call me today to discuss these issues. Would you be surprised to find out that my phone hasn't rung?!

We recently stayed at Sheraton Wild Horse Pass, south of Phoenix for a quick 2 night mini-vacation. The location is wonderfully remote and feels like you light years from the crowds of Phoenix/Scottsdale. We used SPG points for our stay and enjoyed every minute of our relaxing getaway. The property is beautifully maintained and a walk around the grounds is a must. We hiked the property's trail weaving around and through the golf course and thoroughly enjoys the desert landscape and wildlife. The pool was fantastic (although with a large group at the hotel it got pretty rowdy crowded late in the afternoon). Service at the pool was great....Dominick - pool waiter, was engaging and couldn't have been nicer.
Two items of mention that could have made our stay a bit more perfect: as an SPG member, it would have been nice to have been located in a better room...although we were outdoors most of our stay, we were tucked into a far corner facing the parking lot on the first floor....the other issue is a curious one...with the craft beer prowess of the Phoenix market, it would have been nice to have more than 2 local craft beers on the menu....Those two minor thoughts aside, our stay at Wild Horse Pass was fantastic and we'll look forward to our next visit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vermont2014 Great for pure R&R
This was our second stay here within a year. When we felt the need to just get away from our normal life for a few days, we knew this resort would do the trick. Besides almost guaranteed great weather, the resort is beautiful, everything is well maintained, and the staff are just what we like: helpful but not intrusive. Our favorite meal: Mac and Cheese on the patio watching sunset. We like that the Aji spa is close but separate from the main facility, it makes a spa day feel even more like a treat rather than a service. All around, you do a great job here of making a resort stay simple, unpretencious, and enjoyable. We'll be back for sure.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Angry12735127534 Do I have your attention now?
Other than your slow pool service, immature teenage staff, and unreliable front desk, I actually had a pretty decent stay here. You have a gentleman on staff with a shaved head who memorized what beer I like and had it ready for me at each business cocktail event... amazing. Then I came home, took some friends out for dinner and went through the embarrassment of having my card declined in front of everyone because it was maxed out. Reason? After seeing your front desk staff on 3 separate occasions to ensure that my 3 day vacation checkout would go onto my personal card, and my business check in would go on the company account, it somehow managed to not happen! You charged thousands of dollars to the wrong account, and you also overcharged beyond what I have on the printed invoice. I expressly told 3 different staff members: "I need to check out on one card, and I need to check in on business on this other card." They assured me it would be done. Obviously that failed to happen. Also, everything went on the wrong SPG #. To make matters worse, and the reason I'm on your website right now blasting you... when I called in expressing frustration and said "I need to speak to a manager." I got a slight attitude before being placed into an automated dialing selection, and being told to leave a message somewhere... which is yet to be returned. Do you honestly think that's how that situation should be handled? I sometimes deal with unhappy customers. You know what I do? I personally ensure they're taken care of from start to finish, because then things like this happen. I want a phone call, and I want this fixed immediately. I will absolutely not be subjected to your phone menu again. I will never stay here again, and I will tell every business man I know about this abysmal service.

Overall, my experience was good with this hotel. I had requested a king bed, and didn't get it. I had a lovely Spa experience, and learned afterwards that the Spa added a 20% gratuity. It would have been nice to know that beforehand. Meeting space was excellent. Sandwich lunches were very good.

This is our second stay and it was as good as the first. The staff is always friendly and accommodating. Special mention goes out to Rasoul who greeted us with a big smile and a warm greeting every morning in the restaurant. Jackie, server in the pool area, was another of our favorites. Highly recommend this resort to visitors and locals alike. We introduced it to some family who live in AZ and had never been there. They were impressed also.

I wanted to take a moment to pass on some kudos for your team and staff.
I am a Platinum member, and overall, always enjoy my experiences staying at SPG properties. However, I feel I should definitely mention, you and your team at the Wild Horse Pass Spa & Resort, set a new bar.
From the moment we checked in, until we departed this morning, the service was top notch, in most cases exceptional.
We had plans to leave the resort and do some local exploring, however, due to the service, feel, food, and amenities, we didn’t want to leave and were sad to check out, already planning our next visit.
I particular, dealing with “Justin” each morning at breakfast was a highlight. He was attentive, friendly, and set the bar for your resort. We specifically asked for him each morning and enjoyed having breakfast with “Justin” for the four days prior to his days off.
The front desk, doormen, wait staff, spa, lobby and pool side employees, were all a pleasure to deal with. Well done and kudos to your team.
Lastly, the food…exceptional; we ate at the lobby bar, restaurant, breakfast service and pool side, never having a bad meal, and anxiously anticipation our next…we can’t wait to return, one of the best holidays we have had, thanks for the memories.

The hotel was great place to host the gymnastics meet ( the place to stay). Rawhide was a cute town and the gym meet was close. A great get a way. I was disappointed housekeeping did not show. We were charged for gratuity and service but they did not show. We called for coffee and towels and they were prompt to bring to us. Fitness area was wonderful and I would come back for a family or girls get away.

Rated 2 out of 5 by roger2 Failed in a few big ways.
Two weeks prior to arrival I called to verify the ability to have a small refrigerator in the room for keeping medicine in. I was told not a problem that was an easy request. I arrived and was told we will get one as soon as possible. After four hours I stopped back and asked if they can unlock the minibar fridge so I can use that since no one brought the fridge and was told that is not part of my reservation. I am not sure what was meant by that but that was not an acceptable answer. I used ice from the vending machine to keep cold until the following day and ended up having to pay to get a ride into town and by more meds (because they got warm) and wasted not only a few hours out of my stay but $82.00 as well. I complained one more time at check out and was told “I’ll make sure the Mgr. hears about this” I did ask one of the desk staff to have a manager contact me but apparently the lack of follow through starts at the top here.
This is obviously not the normal here as the hotel is very highly rated. I am not sure what happened but to have this many breakdowns in process there is certainly a problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SuzanneG Wonderful, relaxing stay
My mother and I recently spent a long weekend at the Sheraton Wild Horse. As this was a holiday weekend, we expected the hotel to be quite busy; however, due to a concurrent business conference most of the guests were in meetings all day. We had the pool area practically to ourselves the entire time.
We utilized the spa and found the services delightful. The spa pool and cafe were excellent. We also attempted to walk part of the interpretive trail, but found that the paved paths around the conference center were much nicer for a stroll.
We had dinner at Kai, and the service was exceptional. Shortly after we finished the meal, a handwritten note and chocolates were delivered to our room from the restaurant.
The best service we experienced was when we tried to go to an off-site restaurant for dinner and the car that the bellman ordered did not show up on time. The bellman took us to the off-site restaurant in the resort car. It saved us money, and we still made our reservation.
I will definitely consider staying at this resort again. Its less than 30 minutes from the airport making it a very convenient location, and its serene and idyllic setting make you feel like you're hours away from civilization.

Unfortunately I had one of my worst experience at this hotel. Being a platinum member of SPG, I staid over 50 nights at spg hotels last year.
During this stay we found handful of Beatles in our room and also at the resturant. I expected that the SPG would have 100% satisfaction policy, but unfortunately with the exception of only one night off on the hotel room, no other discounts or compensation were offered. I am thinking to change my hotel program and switch to other competitor hotels.
