"Staycation to celebrate wifes birthday"
Staycation to celebrate wifes birthday away from kids with friends. Nice friendly environment with good location, good food and drink.Genuine Expedia guest review
The staff was very helpful made us feel very welcome and feel at home. The parking valet helps us with our luggage showed us our room and all the details. gave shopping ifo, restaurant ect. As we were leaving gave us water and made us feel us feel very special. Made a very good impression.Genuine Expedia guest review
"What a great choice!"
This is a hidden gem. The mid-century modern aesthetic makes you feel like a 50's movie star in the desert on hiatus. Great staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel in a great location"
The service was wonderful. The breakfast had a few hiccups but the manager was quick to come over and smooth things out for us. The rooms are large and have plenty of attention to detail. I loved the big bath central to the room. Pool was good fun although a little quieter as it's late in the summer season.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Valley Ho We appreciate your review! You might enjoy our weekday Cool Redux Happy Hour.
I enjoyed the retro aspect of this classic hotel. The bathtub in the middle of the room was more of an impediment to navigation than a useful touch -- but it sure is unique.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Valley Ho We appreciate your review! It sounds like you were in one of our Studio Guest Rooms, which have an open floor plan. Our other rooms have more traditional-style bathrooms.
"Don Draper's Apartment"
I was upgraded into a suite. Holy moly, I felt like I entered into Don Draper's New York apartment. So much space, such a cool look and feel to the rooms. Loved the pool, loved the bar, loved the food. The staff were super friendly and professional. All around, great stay!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Awesome staff! Great when they great you by name."
The Valley Ho is one of my ultimate favorite hotels I've ever stayed at. From the moment I dropped off my car at valet, to the moment I checked out. The staff is beyond awesome. The vibe and eclectic crowd that meets up at the lobby bar/restaurant, the patio and the pool is super hip & cool. The room was super comfortable and very clean. I never heard […] any of my neighbors to either side, or upstairs, and I loved that. Super cool. I had the Poolside Cabana room and to have my own area to chill out at after a long day of conference meetings, it was the best way to relax and enjoy the vibe. Overall, I'd come back any day.

The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. The room, although clean at first glance, had a bad odor. The fabric on the bed platform was badly stained. It was quiet during the week, but as the weekend approached the volume was turned up. Definitely the place to hold your pool party.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Find a different hotel...."
For context, I have traveled a lot. I stayed at a "Signature" room in the Tower. Top notch bellman crew and concierge services. Interesting decor (though I would consider this hotel to be just a step above Holiday Inn). If you enjoy very loud pool music at, this is the place for you (and you enjoy listening to it in your hotel room. If a DJ is playing […] you can actually distinguish the lyrics of song you never heard before in your hotel room). Nice bathroom, except there is so little lighting that it is difficult to see to shave and ladies would not be able to on make-up. The bathroom shower head is a "rain" shower with little water pressure. Difficult to wash off soap (and my wife was very unhappy in trying to get the soap out of her hair). Tiny, scratchy towels you would get at a budget hotel. Poor restaurant service and neither of us liked our meal. Bar is open, just off the lobby. Not staffed properly for a convention (and convention planners stay away from this place!). If you don't have a car, good luck. There is no free shuttle, but there is a service you pay $14 round trip + tip that will take you to certain restaurants. The hotel is not within good walking distance of Old Scottsdale area It sits off by itself away from anything interesting. While pleasant, the front desk staff don't seem to know what they are doing a lot and you will get inaccurate information. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Valley Ho The hotel was built in 1956 and underwent an $80 million renovation in 2005, with many updates since then. Our design is a nod to our history, mid-century meets modern. We do have DJ entertainment at the pool on Saturday afternoons in the summer from 1:30 to 5:30 p.m. We list this information on our websites, social media, and printed materials in order to keep guests informed, as we understand that some guests would prefer to visit at a different time for a quieter stay. With a room number, I can have our engineering team check on the lighting and water pressure in your room. I apologize for those issues that you experienced during your stay. We’d also love more information about your restaurant experience. I’m not sure if you mentioned your concerns during your restaurant visit, but our managers appreciate the opportunity to speak with guests and offer solutions. I apologize if the front desk manager you spoke with seemed in a hurry, we definitely want our guests to feel welcome and cared for and this is not representative of our service ethic. We host a lot of events and meetings here, and typically receive wonderful feedback. I’m very sorry if your conference experience was not what you were hoping for. Please let us know about any issues you experienced during your conference, if you have not already done so. We always send a follow-up questionnaire to see if there is anything we could have done better. We are at the western end of Downtown, with bars and restaurants just across the street (The House, Grazie, Old Town Tortilla Factory, and others). Old Town is a specific area within Downtown, and that is a .4-mile (9-minute) walk from the hotel. There is a convenient, free Downtown Scottsdale trolley that stops just in front of the hotel. It’s a great way to get around the area and goes as far north as Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall. We appreciate your feedback.
"Spacious room with backyard."
Went for a stay cation with girlfriends, so we decided to get a cheaper hotel. I was surprised at the modern decor, the size of the room and the large backyard area. The staff was extremely helpful and nice. Overall I would definitely enjoy staying there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
What a neat stay at a classy place. Loved it, especially the pool, the happy hour menu, and the maintained retro feel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Valley Ho Thanks for your review! We hope to see you again.
"Hotel Valley Ho"
This is a nice property that offers a good room layout, comfort, cleanliness, and a good restaurant....BUT, on weekend nights this property seems to attract (invite?) a very young and very loud crowd. I had a group staying above my room (groups seem common) that was not only loud, but were throwing cigareetes and beer bottles off of the balcony (every […] room has an outside area with a lounge/table/chairs). There are weekend parties at the pool (a very nice pool) that also get pretty loud. Overall, if you're looking for a party atmosphere, Valley Ho is the way to go (although the neighbors may be a bit undesireable on the weekends), but if you're looking for peaceful relaxation, you may want to look elsewhere (despite the nice setup and grounds this property offers). Use the free parking, as it's faster and, depending on your room assignment, possibly more convenient than the valet.... And lastly, the hotel staff is top notch, very attentive and very professional... A note to the owners, random walk-throughs by security during which they ask the loud rooms to be repsectful of others would go a long way towards bringing repeat business. If not for the noise, I would have rated Valley Ho a solid 4 and maybe a 5. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Valley Ho I’m sorry you did not enjoy your stay at the hotel. We certainly do not condone guests throwing items off of their balconies. If our security team is aware of such an issue, they will immediately address it as that is a safety concern. We also have a no-party policy for our guest rooms, and security follows up on any complaints to ensure that noise is kept to a reasonable level so that all guests can enjoy their stay and get a good night’s sleep. Our security team does walk the property periodically, but they may not always walk past a room while guests are being noisy. Any noise complaints are handled immediately. We have a band poolside Fridays from April to July, and a DJ on Saturdays from April to September; the hotel does tend to be more lively during this time. Our poolside entertainment concludes at the end of this month, resulting in a more relaxed, quiet atmosphere. Also in October, our new relaxation pool will be open. We would love another chance to show you what Hotel Valley Ho is all about! Thank you very much.
"Girlfriends in-town getaway"
I'm a native Phoenician. This hotel has been around since before I was born. I had previously been to a company Xmas party, but wanted to check out hotel and get a break from summer doldrums. We were lucky to have some clouds & cooler weather. Dinner at Cafe Zuzu was excellent. The scallops were splendid and my friend had the pasta with meatballs. Wonderful […] ambience, a true dining pleasure: not the noisy, cacophonous dining experience so popular nowadays. Breakfast on patio of Cafe Zuzu. The service at this hotel is unrivaled. No sooner do you ask for something, it's delivered to room or whisked to your table. SERVICE ALONE gets 5 stars plus. This hotel is a Valley landmark and the renovation pays homage to that in keeping the spirit and integrity of the Valley Ho alive. The rooms were clean, bright, comfortable beds; shower AND a huge tub! I completely recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Upon arrival at the facility valet parking attendant offered parking services for $14; however, also provide information for self parking. When checking in there had been a reservation error and my room was upgraded to poolside. This day was for business purposes and they did not have an opportunity to enjoy the resort; however, the amenities within […] the room were beyond my expectation Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"It's hot in Scottsdale, but it's a dry heat"
The Hotel Valley Ho is a great place to stay in Scottsdale, walking distance to everything and the place is great just to hang around. Excellent restaurant on site, the huevos rancheros were superb, good bar, and friendly and helpful staff. Would I stay there again? Absolutely!Genuine Expedia guest review
I have stayed here many times for buisness. They have a great happy hour and the pool has sunlight the longest out of most hotels. This time I was booked in a double room and the beds were not as comfortable as the Kings. Also the light next to my bed was not working and I left a note every day for housekeeping but nothing was done.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Valley Ho Thank you for your comments. I'm sorry you found the full bed less comfortable than the king bed; they are both the same model of Simmons, made here in Phoenix. Notes in guest rooms are typically guests' personal communication, not directed at hotel staff, so the housekeepers that service your room likely did not realize the notes were written to them. Additionally, not all of our housekeeping staff can read English. I apologize the light was not working. Please call the front desk with any needs (maintenance or otherwise) and we are happy to assist you! We hope to see you again.
"Cool, stylish place near all the good stuff ."
I love the Valley Ho. I've stayed there several times now, so I begin to relax as soon as I see the place. The staff are friendly and attentive, the food and cocktails at Cafe Zuzu are splendid, and it's within walking distance of most of the things I enjoy doing in Scottsdale.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Like living 'Mad Men""
This hotel is amazing! It is retro-redone. It has so much charm and charisma, I really liked it. They should be playing the Mad Men theme song when you walk in. The rooms are large and really neat. Bathrooms are big too. This place is art deco to the nth degree. The pool is really jumping on Saturdays with a pool party. I preferred getting a cabana […] on friday and just chilling. I would totally recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Super clean hotel. Enjoyed the room and balcony. Super comfy over sized chaise. Food in the restaurant was good as was the service. Saturday afternoon was extremely loud outside at the pool because of a DJ. Good if you are looking for a party atmosphere but not so great if you are expecting peace and relaxation. This does shut down at 6PM however so […] it is not ongoing all evening. Overall, a cool funky place to hang! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Mid century modern!"
Perfect stay, nice modern hotel, breakfast menu outdated by 50 years.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Valley Ho We appreciate your review! We feature a lot of classic dishes with a modern twist. Our breakfast menu has some contemporary items like our Red Velvet Waffle, Breakfast Quesadilla, and Fruit Parfait, along with many traditional items. However, there are many lovely restaurants in Downtown Scottsdale we're happy to recommend if you're looking for something different. We hope to see you again!

The hotel was built in the 1950's and that era pervaded the hotel. No guest laundry facilities and no elevators. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Room was outstanding for 1950.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Valley Ho We appreciate your comments! Aside from our restored 1950s rooms, we have rooms in our seven-story tower, which opened in 2008. This new construction was part of the original architect's plans, and we do have elevators in that building. You may enjoy it, should you visit again. Cheers!

I booked the Valley Ho to celebrate my birthday with my girlfriends. They all suggested other hotels that they had stayed at, but they were really glad that we ended up at there because they agreed that the pool and the service was better than other similar hotels in the area. We enjoyed the pool service all day, were close to everything we wanted for […] dinner and entertainment at night (plenty of space for 4 girls to get ready in one room!) and had great people watching at the pool party on Saturday. The staff seemed to feel honored that I only live a couple of miles away and choose to stay with them for my birthday. I would do it again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Way to go, Valley Ho"
I have stayed at this resort hotel a number of times. I have recommended It to other people who also enjoyed it. The restaurant is really good, no need to even go out if you don't want to. Walking distance to bars, restaurants, nightclubs, and other activities, this hotel is nicely situated near old town Scottsdale. The rooms are large and well appointed.

"OK but not great"
If you check in at night it is difficult to locate your room. Buildings poorly marked. Slow to respond to our request for a DVD player. Room service breakfast delivered with no spoons for cereal. Nice pool area and grounds. Pet friendly is a plus.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Valley Ho I'm sorry that you had trouble locating your room. Our outdoor walkways are lighted and maps are provided upon check-in with instructions on how to find your room, as we want guests to be able to locate their rooms easily. While the buildings do not have numbers on them, each guest room has a number next to it that designates the building number. I apologize that you had to wait for the DVD player to arrive, and that you did not receive spoons with your breakfast order. I will review these issues with our team to ensure a great experience for our guests. We appreciate your review, and hope to see you again!

"Hot, Hot, Hot!"
Looks like something out of the Jetsons! Very retro, but very clean. The staff was great, but the food was average. Really too hot to check out the pool. Nice place.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Valley Ho Thank you for your review! Our restaurant focuses on seasonal American fare made with local ingredients - simple food made well. We'd love for you to experience some of our favorite dishes like the Kale Salad or Pan Seared Sea Scallops.

"Hope you like firm beds"
The rooms are really not conducive to relaxing. The beds are extremely hard, the pillows only have one firmness and the chairs are almost impossible to sit in. The staff is incredible and the bar and restaurant are among the best. We were there for a memorial and the staff was very respectfulGenuine Expedia guest review
"overall, a great weekend"
From the moment we walked in, the staff at the Valley Ho was very friendly and helpful. They warned us that Saterdays at the pool get pretty loud and it did but it shut down at 6:00 so not a big deal. Be advised that the pool is right in the middle of the hotel so it's pretty unavoidable. I'm not a clubber, but the dj was awesome! Food at Cafe Zuzu […] is very good. Drinks in the lounge are pretty pricey but they are a good size and they don't skimp on the alcohol so it's almost with it. The lounge was getting a little full of people who had obviously had too much to drink, which the waitress kept apologizing for. But if you're the younger, party crowd that might be a selling feature. Overall, I really enjoyed my weekend there. If you're 40+ you might want to skip the stay but go for dinner. I don't know if I would take my children just because of the general party vibe. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Valley Ho We appreciate your review! The hotel tends to be more lively on summer weekends, when we have the poolside entertainment. It has a more relaxed atmosphere on summer weekdays, and all week in the non-summer months.

"I really like the Valley HO"
Stayed for three nights Mid June I really loved it. First and foremost I had a hip replacement last year and while I don't request accessable rooms, I was having trouble with my hip. Mike saw me hobbling along, took my bag, showed me my room and was just generally a hero. The food is just wonderful, loved Polly (?) at the bar, killer bloody mary's. […] Valley Ho is a nice mix of people, the girls there for bachelorette parties were enthusiastic, but not obnoxious. The price was resonable, room comfy, mini bar a plus, room service perfect. But here is where they went above and beyond the call of duty. Lupita with the hotel also saw me having difficulty walking (I was just sore and tired) and brought me ice and an ice pack...what a sweetie. The soup at the bar was extraordinary, wish I could have finished it. I would go back in a heart beat. Lively, fun, without being the Hardrock.... Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Good but not what I expected."
It's a fun property. Retro, like someplace the rat pack would have stayed in Vegas once upon a time. Hard to find rooms not in main building. Bar just doesn't have the vibe you'd expect for the property. Seemed the spa was nice though my therapist didn't show to work soni can't vouch for that. Spa director tried hard to find a solution but disappointed […] nonetheless. I might try it again, who knows. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Valley Ho We appreciate your review. I'm not sure which building you mean by "main building", but we offer rooms in The Tower and also in the restored 1950s wings of the hotel. I apologize sincerely for the issue you experienced at the spa. The massage therapists do wonderful work, and we'd love to see you again. Have a wonderful summer!
