The Desert Ridge Resort
We spent some time at Marriott's Desert Ridge Resort for a business conference. It was such a relaxing three days!
As you pull up, valets are waiting to assist you. Inside, an expansive lobby awaits as you check in. Then take the escalator to a second tier seating area below(picture 3) where comfortable leather chairs and couches are located.
I thought their dining choices were extensive:
Ristorante Tuscany (Italian/ dinner)
Blue Sage Restaurant and Marketplace (Southwestern/breakfast,lunch & dinner)
Just A Splash Bar & Grill (American-open for lunch)
Roy's Hawaiian Fusion Cuisine (Fresh seafood and sushi/opened for dinner)
Spa Bistro (International/breakfast & lunch)
Starbucks Cafe (serving pastry and coffee/ breakfast and lunch items)
Meritage Steakhouse at Wildfire Golf Club
Vista Lounge-(lunch and dinner; martinis their specialty)
There are 950 guest rooms, including 81 or so suites. The nicely appointed room provided down-filled pillows and luxurious bedding (picture 2). It offered cable/satellite tv, in-room movies, mini-bar, iron, ironing board and safe for our belongings. Some suites featured fireplaces, microwave ovens, and refrigerators. Room service is available to all guests.
The spacious bathroom, held spray jets, separate tub and shower and hair dryer. Fluffy white bathrobes were tucked away in the closet!
The concierge desk was ever busy booking sightseeing tours. A full-service business center and safety deposit boxes at the front desk are available.
Outdoors, a swimming pool (picture 4), lazy river (picture 5) and jacuzzi. Other activities were a biking trail, jogging and fitness trail; a nature preserve trail; hiking, sauna and tennis.
The resort had two fitness facilities: The Revive Spa and Fitness Center. I think golfers would find the Wildfire Golf Club especially nice. This hotel had everything it takes to make your stay a pampered and delightful one!
