Considered a premier area of Scottsdale, Gainey Ranch features golf courses and the nearby scenic trails of the McDowell Sonoran Preserve. With the hotel’s central location between Scottsdale Fashion Square/Old Town and the bustling Kierland Commons and Scottsdale Quarter, it’s the ideal spot to rest at the end of a busy day. Next door, stop by The Shops-Gainey Village for shopping and a collection of great restaurants.  Also, less than 5 miles away from popular attractions such as the OdySea Aquarium, Butterfly Wonderland, Topgolf and iFLY Indoor Skydiving. Travel + Leisure calls the Rainforest at Butterfly Wonderland "incredible."

Unlike many hotels in the Valley of the Sun, Gainey Suites charges no resort fees. Guests can take advantage of the complimentary hot breakfast buffet and an evening reception with appetizers, beer, wine and nonalcoholic beverages. Spend sun-drenched Arizona days in a poolside cabana, then head back in the evening for a soak in the Jacuzzi or to sip cocktails near the fire pit.

All suites provide more than 460 square feet of space, including a separate living area, kitchen and dining area. Take advantage of complimentary Wi-Fi access, and then sink into a cozy bed with 300-thread-count linens.

This is the fifth year w have stayed here.. It really needs some upgrades and much needed maintenance. The breakfast is always really good. Room smelled musty and was damp. that being said we enjoyed our stay, but would think twice before booking again.

Second time at Sonesta (Gainey) Suites. First time was so good, we decided to come back. With a diverse breakfast and appetizers (more like dinner) each day, and included beer/wine, you can't beat this value. Rooms are clean and comfortable. The only downside is the color of the carpeting, which really shows dirt. The pool is a great place to hang out and beat the summer heat. We were a little concerned that, under new ownership, the product and price would be changed. But, after calling for reassurance, the person we talked to said "The only thing that's changed is the name on the sign out front". And he was right. Hope everything is status quo for 2020, because we're already planning a return visit.

The only problem we experienced is the inconsistency of the maid service. One day the maid appeared early morning; another mid afternoon; another 4:30 in the afternoon; and, another, no service at all. If we at least had a general idea of when to expect service, it would have been easier to plan the day.

We enjoyed this hotel so much that we are looking for reasons to travel back to Scottsdale to stay there again! Clean room, comfortable bed, the suite was everything you could hope for. Staff was also wonderful at breakfast and at front desk. There is a Sprouts in walking distance and a wonderful Mall also.
Other Comments
The appetizer happy hour was really a full on meal! Lots of choices, 2 drinks per room, service exceptional. When you consider that we didn't need to go out for dinner, and breakfast is also included, the value cannot be beat.

We have been there when it was under previous ownership. The new beds were very good but the upgrades overall were not significant. the breakfast and happy hour food was not as good as it was under the previous owners. I am not as excited about returning as I was when the food was excellent.
