Andaz Scottsdale Lodge Assessment


The Andaz Scottsdale is a brand new property situated a few miles North of Outdated City Scottsdale within the Phoenix Metro space. With 201 rooms and a novel trendy model, this new resort is each hip and comfy whereas bringing the Andaz idea to the desert.

This previous yr I’ve had the pleasure of staying at this resort on two events. (I’m reviewing my first keep since my second was a fast in a single day.) Whereas charges can spike to $400+ through the busy months, my visits got here throughout off peak occasions. On each events I used to be capable of seize a room for about $100 per evening in lieu of spending 20,000 World of Hyatt factors.

  • My Value: ~ $100 ($39 Resort charge waived attributable to Globalist standing)
  • Alternate Charges: 20,000 World of Hyatt factors

The Andaz Scottsdale is in a Prime location on Scottsdale Rd close to numerous golf programs, eating places and purchasing. There are lots of high-end resorts on this space and the Andaz suits proper in. For these taking a look at visiting Outdated City Scottsdale, it’s only some miles away and the resort even has a shuttle that may take you there.

Test-In & Foyer

Preserving with the Andaz idea, this resort doesn’t have a conventional foyer, however as an alternative a cushty lounge kind space the place check-in is finished on an iPad. This area is trendy and comfy and really is a pleasant place to hang around if you wish to get out of the room for awhile.

Throughout each of my stays check-in was completed shortly and I used to be given a selection of the place I needed to remain. On my first journey I had various stuff to lug from the automobile to my room, so I requested for and was granted a room close to a parking spot. On my second journey I took a room close to the foyer. Throughout check-in additionally, you will be supplied with a calendar of occasions taking place on the resort. This may inform you when you will get free booze by the pool! 🙂

The Room

The Andaz Scottsdale is made up of 201 bungalow model rooms giving the property a really unfold out really feel. Throughout my two stays I used to be capable of expertise two room sorts, a fundamental room with two queen beds and the Saarinen Bungalow proven under. I positively advocate taking a look at a map and asking for a room location that fits your wants. Relying on the place your room is the stroll to get to the pool or different facilities could possibly be lengthy so maintain that in thoughts. (Though the resort is gorgeous to stroll via, particularly at evening!)

As is the case with lots of Hyatt’s newer motels, the Andaz Scottsdale options rooms with a big 65″ good tv. This implies you may stream your favourite applications from Netflix and different platforms proper onto the tv. The system they use works very properly and this was positively a pleasant contact for this resort.

Saarinen Bungalow Assessment 

On the primary keep I used to be upgraded to a Saarinen Bungalow which is a bit larger than a standard room. Along with a sitting space outdoors the room’s entrance door, it additionally has a non-public balcony out again for solar bathing. The spotlight of this room although is the superb bathe. This factor might in all probability match six individuals!

The room as anticipated is trendy and comfy with a few seating areas along with the mattress. (See extra photographs on the finish.) An enormous tv looms over the world (I’m not complaining) and naturally there’s a mini bar the place all non-alcoholic drinks and snacks are complimentary. I notably preferred the taffy and snack bars!

Commonplace Eemes Bungalow Assessment

Whereas I arrived late and thus didn’t snap any pics of the usual room on my second keep, I’ll say it was noticeably smaller than the Saarinen Bungalow. It did have the identical tv and mini-bar from the primary room, however was lacking that giant lavatory and patio out again. Sadly I imagine all rooms with two beds are commonplace, so if you would like an improve go for a King!


The Andaz Scottsdale solely has one major restaurant known as Weft & Warp Artwork Bar & Kitchen. Small bites may also be bought on the pool bar as properly. As a Globalist, breakfast was included every morning, however with a twist. They serve breakfast till 2pm, that means you should utilize your free amenity for lunch as an alternative. As somebody who doesn’t actually eat early that always, I took benefit of the later cutoff time.

As for the meals, it’s actually actually good. Over the few days I stayed, my household and I attempted all kinds of dishes and the whole lot was scrumptious. From the Lemon Poppy Pancakes to Huevos Rancheros, there wasn’t something unhealthy. The true spotlight although was the restaurant’s selfmade sizzling sauces. (See a photograph within the gallery on the finish.) Strive all of them. You gained’t remorse it!


The pool space at this resort has a really “enjoyable” vibe and is commonly full of friends. Whereas it lacks water slides that comparable resorts have within the space, it additionally lacks a ton of kids. Whereas my daughter did get pleasure from some pool time enjoying with the varied inflatables that they had, the place was principally crammed with adults which gave it extra of a celebration kind ambiance through the day. For individuals who need privateness, bungalows can be found for lease (and a few rooms include them), though the resort does have numerous day beds obtainable free of charge as properly.

Along with the primary pool, the resort additionally has a full spa and a properly outfitted fitness center. Whereas I didn’t get to check out the spa, the fitness center appeared great with all kinds of latest tools. Remember that the fitness center is situated on the far finish of the property so when you plan on figuring out often, it may be sensible to get a room close by, particularly through the brutally sizzling summers.


Whereas Hyatt has numerous resorts on this space, I really am in love with the Andaz Scottsdale. As a Globalist the resort charge and thus parking is free plus I get a scrumptious breakfast, entry to a beautiful pool and fitness center plus within the case of my first room, a cushty area that I merely didn’t need to go away.

To be trustworthy, on condition that I dwell in Las Vegas I in all probability gained’t be escaping the chilly right here through the peak Winter season, however I’ll be glad to remain for round $100 when the temperature is excessive. Actually, at that value it is among the greatest resort values round!
