Rated 3 out of 5 by Jason747 Sheraton Tempe
I have never left a review on here, but feels this location needs your attention. It started with dinner taking an hour. We wanted a quick dinner and only ordered soup and salad. Their excuse was the machine did not print out in the kitchen. Once in the room, the AC was obnoxiously loud but I thought maybe I could sleep through it considering it was 11 and we had to get up at 4. We never received our wakeup call. I always have my phone alarm as a backup, but it was dead because the plug on the desk ended up not working and my phone died. We ended up missing our flight. I try to book Starwood when possible and am typically pleased with Sheraton. I would not say this location is up to par with a typical Starwood property. I hope the hotel receives this review. Thank you.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Goiba Extremely Disappointed Guest
Please know I've historically loved Starwood properties, however as I write this review I'm sitting in my 79 degree room (now over 3 hours) with a "air conditioner" unit that absolutely doesn't work. I wish your corporate headquarters could mandate your property owners maintain minimal operational standards that preserve your brand image, rather than detract from it. The hotel maintenance is absolutely unacceptable and I'm left feeling trapped in a hot box (my room), literally sticky and sweating as I write because the property doesn't invest in appropriate upkeep to ensure guests are comfortable during their stay. I'm extremely disappointed in my experience with this hotel, and extremely uncomfortable. Unfortunately I can't check out early and I will not be returning to this property again. Thank you for listening.

Rated 1 out of 5 by cxk358 Many stays, terrible quality
I have been platinum for years and this is the worst SPG hotel I have ever stayed at. I have stayed several times here and I always have the same complaints. Room service is terribly slow (over an hour). There is no room service menu in the room. The elevator buttons are broken. The AC in the rooms are extremely loud. The shuttle from the airport only runs (at best) every 30 minutes. Often it takes over an hour to get from the airport to the hotel if they skip a run, or don't bother stopping to pick you up. I now pay up to stay at an alternative hotel.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Tracy712u Failed Front Desk Service - Raw Food Served in Restaurant
I decided to stay at your property due to attending a business meeting with American Airlines. I chose the hotel as it listed that shuttle service was available between the hotel and American Airlines Corporate Headquarters. Upon arrival I was advised that you do not provide this type of shuttle service however the front desk employee (African American male) was very professional and advised me that he would look into it to see what he could do. I inquired about nearby restaurants and he proposed that I try the restaurant inside the hotel. He also mentioned that they had a new chef starting that very night (04/20/16). I will tell you that I was extremely disappointed with the Fire/Spice restaurant. The wait time to place my order was 10 minutes. Once I ordered my Chicken Caesar Salad Chicken Marsala it took an additional 30 minutes to receive the food. The restaurant had maybe 15 people dining in. Once the order finally arrived I took one bite and was alarmed to find the chicken atop the Ceasar Salad was raw. In consideration of that fact I refused to attempt the Marsala which was coated in seasoning and therefore too difficult to determine if it was raw as well. I shared this with the waiter, showed him the chicken for which he apologized. I then proceeded to your front desk to now inquire about anything close by where I could obtain food. I shared the issue at Fire/Spice and asked if I could get the van driver to drop me considering the restaurant failure for which (Steve) rudely refused. He stated that if they were not so busy he would allow the driver to take me. He suggested I call Uber instead meanwhile the van that was too busy to take me was sitting outside the hotel front doors from that moment until my Uber arrived. I don't understand why the driver could not drop me since the van was sitting outside. Another gentleman at your front desk overheard the conversation and was polite enough to offered a 20 card for my first ride with Uber which was appreciated but of no use since I had taken Uber before. Steve failed to offer and presented himself as if he could care less. He did not even apologize for the failure of the restaurant. I am sure he is not the perception you want to give to customers being on the front line. The same gentleman who gave the Uber card also provided recommendations for places to eat which Steve could not be bothered to do. I'm certainly disappointed at the failed service on the part of the restaurant however in my opinion Steve surely added insult to injury by failing in service recovery.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JaniceTX Will not stay again!
Room air conditioning fan is loud, can hear traffic as well. No signage for gym from my room - had to wait and ask front desk, room service was quoted at 1-1 1/2 hours due to only one person around 8pm. When I said I would go ahead and go downstairs and pick up, it took 15-20 min - short staffed, however, room service guy was socializing with guests from his restaurant table and clearly did not want to leave to run a small room service order. Did not want to get back into clothes from pj's but had to if I wanted anything to eat!!! Ended up eating at bar since it would be quicker and I already had to go back down stairs. Very disappointing! Manager, Matt (?) should have also quit socializing to help other guests by either helping with tables in restaurant or run room service orders. As a female business traveler, I am very disappointed at the service of this hotel and will NOT be back again. This is an example of why I keep limiting my SPG hotels that I used to love.

Rated 3 out of 5 by bbrown914 Average Airport Hotel
This hotel is pretty standard for an airport hotel. Almost as if Sheraton purchased this property and didn't build it from the ground up.
I've stayed here a few times because the price is usually pretty good and I needed to be near the airport. I don't think I usually get the platinum benefits I'm entitled to (upgrades, etc.) when I stay here. I stayed here as a gold member and got a big suite upgrade. Since I've stayed as a platinum member I just receive a standard room.
The club room is nice. The breakfast in the morning and snacks in the evening are a step above continental.
If you're looking for an SPG property at a low-ish price, this works well. However, in Phoenix, proximity to the airport almost just as good if you stay downtown so if the price is right you might be better off staying in the city.
