I was welcomed into this magnificent resort by water, grass and mountain. The elements align to give the guest a “sense of arrival.” (I immediately forgot about my daily grind) It is enormous and luxurious with 950 rooms (81 guest suites) located across five wings; it’s amazing the amount of detail within, and surrounding, its walls. The rooms are lavish, they smell of leather; there are fountains everywhere and huge firepit lounge areas outside for the chilly winter nights. With different styles of restaurants at every turn, retail shops, huge group meeting spaces for special events and even their own FedEx/Kinkos Business Center, The Marriott Desert Ridge HAS IT ALL. There is one thing unique to this resort compared to all other Marriott locations across the world - it’s called the Griffin Club: a private experience for the guest offering access to breakfast, lunch, happy hour and dinner, all for the daily cost of $55. There is a culinary team dedicated to this club and they offer gluten-free gourmet dishes, as well. It’s the first of its kind and model for the future. The resort, in its entirety, is on a whole different level than other resorts in the area. Combining fire, water, earth and sky gloriously, it’s simply divine.

Isolated, stunning, welcoming. As Alesha mentioned, the entrance to the hotel is grand enough to forget what city you are in; and I am a local. Standing in the lobby surrounded by wall sized windows its all mountains and palm trees.
Inside its all smiles. There wasn't a single staff member that did not go out of there way to shoot me a smile. I had a chance to catch up with Hazel, who referenced their herb garden as her own. They have on site, beautiful herb garden thats not just for viewing. Their chefs use the herbs from the garden in their restaurant.
Resort & Spa, JW = WOW!
I've heard the JW throws a wicked NYE party! I'll be checking it out!

Though this Marriot location is about a 30-minute drive north into the desert from Phoenix Sky Harbor, but it’s worth it. Possibly one of the grandest entrances of any hotel I’ve stayed in, the JW lives up to its expectations. You enter about 50 ft above the rear ground level with a palatial ceiling above. The entire back of the hotel is floor to ceiling glass so the moment you arrive you view the sprawling property and its two pools. I will admit I had a pretty big grin on my face as I stepped in the front door.
Then my grin transformed into a goofy smile once I made it out to the two gigantic pools; an adult-only pool and a family pool, which is always so nice. As if two pools weren’t enough the JW is equipped with a winding lazy river to stay cool while soaking in the sun. I would definitely recommend a stay here to anyone.
