    Excellent service and space for room block

    We checked out many hotels/resorts in Scottsdale when trying to pick where to get a room block. Sonesta met everything that we were looking for and more that we didn't anticipate: excellent pool, spacious rooms with kitchen so our guests could have the flexibility to cook (3+ day visits), location, very flexible in terms of event planning. We additionally had a welcome drinks event the night before our wedding, and after our brunch wedding, many in the group came back to the pool to keep the celebration going. Both of these events went great here. All staff were great, particularly our coordinator Trinna. Trinna went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and have a worry-free experience. She had a nice welcome spread in our room upon arrival and was able to get early checkin available not only for us, but for the both sets of parents, and checked in to make sure things were going well. They have a solid complimentary breakfast and wine/beer happy hour each day, which our guests really appreciated. Lastly, this was the only venue that was willing to do a courtesy rate for our group as opposed to requiring a room count guarantee, which was a huge bonus. Overall, we would absolutely recommend this venue for your wedding weekend.

    I can't imagine holding my wedding anywhere else. Kara, my wedding coordinator, was beyond amazing. From the moment I met her she made me and my (then) fiancée feel so comfortable. She was always available to answer my questions, no matter how silly and small. Kara kept me informed of what was going on the day of, and really put me at ease, which made it easier for me to relax and enjoy my wedding day. Whatever we wanted in our ceremony and reception she made happen.

    When the day came the staff took suck wonderful care of everyone. There wasn't anything we needed. The front desk staff was always so helpful and friendly. Everything was set up exactly the way we wanted it to be. They had everything boxed up and ready to go for us on Sunday, and made it so easy for us to just get going. Everyone was simply amazing!


    We opted for the buffet, and never regretted it. The food was fresh and tender. Each mouthful was delicious. The food at our wedding was even better then the food we tasted at our tasting. Everything was so worth it. Most of our guests (and my husband) went back for seconds and thirds!

    The vendors that were available in the vendor package were incredible to work with. It was great working with people who enjoy working together and already knew the property as well as how to set everything up. They were all individual contractors, but worked enough together that they planned everything together. It really took the pressure off and gave me and my husband that extra sense of security.
