Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by AudJo Lovely setting but only adequate
The design of the room was awkward. The bathroom was extremely small and had no mirror. There was a sink outside the bathroom. Awkward because it was in a sitting-type room. Breakfast buffet was of poor quality (fruit not sweet). No variety. There was at least an hour left to time for breakfast buffet and no bread left and items were not refilled.
Grounds are kept very nicely but for my comfort, that just wasn't enough.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by crimmy Few problems, but overall a nice hotel!
A nice, quiet hotel conveniently located near the airport and near major Phoenix freeways. I was not greeted as a Priority Club member, nor did I receive Priority Check-In that I usually experience at other properties. However, the room was nice and dark with the curtains closed, the refrigerator was cold, and everything was in full working order. Had a great time!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Backroadstraveler Unexpected Holiday Inn
A very different Holiday Inn. Grounds and courtyard are very nice. Room and furnishings fall short, seem dated. Room is very poorly lit, had a musky smell.
Food was poor in restaurant and cold from room service.
Staff was friendly and helpful.
Not what I expected from Holiday Inn. Probably overpriced for quality of room and furnishings.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mise NOT my "usual" experience
PHX North is my usual go-to hotel when I am in Phoenix & it always had been a great stay. This time however was less than optimal. My room was the suite with full kitchen, but it was missing many basic amenities. No dish soap, dish towels, knives, paper towels for kitchen, which explains the dirty dishes in the cabinet. No toilet paper in bathroom and the light bulb above the shower was blown. While I was in the bedroom unpacking, maintenance let themselves into my room. They were as shocked to see me, as I them - thankfully I was dressed. They were there to replace the deadbolt on the door (which obviously didn't work). I got them to replace the bulb in the shower since they were there, however, he dropped the old bulb & it shattered in the tub. He got most of the fragments but missed two, one of which I found with my bare foot.
The room was on the forth level, across from the elevator & the final morning of my stay, the elevator was being disassembled for repair. Very noisy!
If this was my first experience with this hotel I would never return, but I am hoping this was an anomaly and not the beginning of a trend. I WILL stay again & recommend this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SoftwareMaker Amazing hotel design
This hotel was designed by a genius, both in the lobby and in the room. Both designs are art and have good art.
I really liked it and was really impressed. It made me smile and laugh to see such a cool look.
Everything was great also.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Karl007 Where's the Heat!?
Each night I stayed there was chilly outside and in my room! It is inconceivable that such a simple amenity such as heat was lacking.
On top of that, I received conflicted information re: the availability of space heaters. In the end, I never got one. Fix the heat problem.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by onthego4 Well presented room
I walked into a clean room with plenty of space. The furniture was well presented. as was the "sleeping area." The bed was comfortable and the room well insulated against outside noise.
The complimentary breakfast was in a very nice dinning room and it had a full menu.
I would recommend this hotel for a pleasant stay.

The Staff is very nice, but nothing get done, on my arrival night, I ask to fix the TV and various lights, for the four days I stay, never the TV could be fixes, and on the third night I got a solution, "Do you like to change room?", yea sure, on my last night. I ask for the manager on two different days, which never was there, I wonder why they can not fix andy problem.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hankerony North 44th Street is a great location !
Before traveling to Sedona for a weeks vacation we decided to explore the Phoenix Area for two days and drive the Apache Trail,
we came across the Lost Dutchman state part as well as the Goldfield Ghost town and lunched at the Mining Camp Rest..
We certainly enjoyed staying in this beautiful Holiday Inn which did provide us with ample room including a separate kitchen-living room, a large Bathroom and a most comfortable King size bed.
The check in and out was very professional, Staff everywhere was very helpful, the grounds well maintained, including the courtyard pool and spa !
We certainly plan to visit Arizona again and come back to this Holiday Inn on North 44th Street.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by CM01 Holiday Inn Suites- January
The room and setting was excellent. The big downside was the amount of noise present at night from the freeway, trucks nearby and neighborhood dogs.
The breakfast was very nice.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Alex49 Comfortable room and relaxing courtyard
I enjoyed my stay as the room was very comfortable and the staff was very helpful and positive. The firepit in the courtyard was great to enjoy at night. Could use a better variety for breakfast ( scrambled eggs were bad). The rooms were big and very quiet. and bed very comfortable. Shuttle bus service excellent.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Calmtnbkr Superb Experience
I travel more than 200 days per year in USA, Europe, and Asia.
Whenever possible I use an Intercontinental group hotel, my top preference is Holiday Inn Express and Holiday Inn.
Of the dozens I use each year, this hotel (Phoenix Airport North) was superb.
The suites are extremely nicely decorated and spacious with everything you can possibly need. The staff both at reception and in the restaurant and bar were the truly professional and genuinely friendly. They welcomed me and recognized my priority status with free bottled water and a snack.
Even though it was late evening, I had a delicious dinner in the restaurant and great service later in the bar.
Just for reference, I spent the next 2 nights at a vry high-end resort in Scottsdale since I had to be part of a national association meeting there and if I had to do it again, I would stay at this Holiday Inn Suites and drive back and forth to Scottsdale. this was much more comfortable for my tastes and far better value. Well done. You have a wonderful team!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gunny02 More than I expected.
I arrived and was promptly greeted by the front desk staff. The hotel was nicely decorated. My room was across the courtyard. Unfortunately the weather was very cool and I could not enjoy the pool or the outside area. My room was very spacious and very nice. The bathroom was huge for my one night needs, but I enjoyed it very much. I plan to stay again on my next business trip to Phoenix but also plan to visit with family on our next vacation.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TravelingBack Great property; excellent rooms; awesome staff
This property; only minutes from Sky Harbor Airport is value for your dollar. It offers excellent room (well appointed and outfitted) and the staff simply "bend over backwards" to make your stay worthwhile.
If there is one criticism I have is that their "SOFT" pillows are foam filled and they do not have any 'feather' pillows set aside for us who have sleep apnea and need that extra softness. This 'extra' service IS AVAILABLE in other Holiday Inn properties but not this one.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by kuekie Beautiful Hotel, poor mangement
The decor at this hotel is absolutely amazing. The room furniture, along with overall remodeling within the property are AMAZING. Service is another standard far outside IHG. For example: we changed rooms 3 times until we could find a room that in working order and CLEAN.
The housekeeping director or manager at this hotel rates similar to a 1-2 star....you get 4 walls and a bed. The rooms wern't disgusting, however they were not nice. The first rooms shower head sprayed water all over the floor, literally would NOT adjust.
The second room we were moved too wasn't cleaned, there was literally dirty towels and used soap throughout the bathroom. NASTY!
Finally the last room was better, however still wasn't to what I'd consider to be a 4-5 star hotel standard.
You can tell this hotel spent millions to upgrade and remodel the entire property, however the management is way lacking. Either the staff isn't trained, or management is slim to null.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Dawn68 Nice property, noisey location
The property had a nice look, lobby area, and outdoor area. First room we were put in was right by the main outdoor area that had nice couches, but could hear everyone talking right outside our room. For a Platinum member, I was shocked I was put here. The main road was right outside our windows and when we turned on the fan in the room to try and drown out the noise, it wouldn't stay on. I went to the front desk only to hear that in the winter the management turns off the ability to have the air on or the fan. I told her we had to move to another room...needed to sleep. So we moved to another room on the upper floor and we were able to get the fan to work in the room to help with the noise of the road. Glad we were able to open the window/patio door as the room was very musty and smelled. The BEST thing about the stay was the food we ordered at 10:50 pm from the bar. It was exceptional! We were so pleased and the service at the bar was great. We brought it back to our room. The room overall....I found hair in both of our beds and I never felt like the room was very well cleaned. Generally a platinum level person gets something when they check-in....I had to ask if I got anything and it was 2 bottles of water. WOW! Thanks.

I live in the Phoenix area and sometimes just want to go to a place to relax and enjoy the amenities at this Hotel. Every time I come
I am greeted like I am an old friend. I feel very welcome and the
Suites are very comfortable, the beds especially. If you can't get
A good night's sleep here, you can't get a good night's sleep anywhere. Whether you come from across the country or from
Around the corner, I recommend Holiday Inn & Suites as my

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by AB2326 Very Disappointed!
Made the reservation because I was told there was a shuttle to the airport. We checked in and were ready to return the rental car and needed a shuttle back and was told they didn't have a driver. After waiting they told us to take a cab and they would reimburse us in the morning. We had a early morning flight so we set up a wakeup call and they scheduled us for the "shuttle". Wake up call was 30 minutes late and when we got to the lobby again no shuttle and we had to take a cab. Regarding the room we didn't get any rest due to the room being so hot. We told the front desk that our room was too hot and we were told that they couldn't do anything about it. We stay at Holiday Inn properties just about every week and this is the first time I have been so upset and disappointed that I have written a complaint. Staff was not helpful and didn't care about our schedule or time. Also, misrepresenting the shuttle service when I specifically asked about it when making the reservation. Very very disappointed!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by WfromCT Hol Inn Phoenix North
This property was recently rennovated with major investment. The staff are pleasant and very accomodating to any request. The grounds are nice and convenient to the airport and major highways. The rooms are large, clean and pleasantly furnished. The lobby/bar/restaurant is a nice meeting place. The main restaurant food was good as well. The guest office space and free wifi was a good touch. The one big drawback is that the a/c and heat are centrally managed for the whole hotel and it was switched over to heat. Even with it turned off our room was so hot that we had to open windows and doors to get cooler air in. Unfortunately that also let in the airport jet and parking lot noise and never adeqautely cooled the room. Sleeping was not easy. It seems strange that so much money was invested to upgrade the facility, modernize the look, improve the guest services only to fall down on one of the basic things guests look for, comfort at night. As a very frequent traveler I'm amazed. It felt like a poorly thought out plan to renovate a tired hotel. Even if this difficulty only lasts for a month in the winter and a month in the spring as temperatures change, I wouldn't want to risk it again. If the heat doesn't bother you then this is a great place to saty. Sorry, nice job on looks and staff. Fumble in the end for someone who prefers cool nights.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FourPutt Nicely upgraded; worthwhile staying for a night or two.
This property recently had a huge 'facelift' throughout the whole property. From when you enter the "theme" lobby to when you get to your room, everything is great. The food - especially room service - is excellent.
Admittadly there are a few gliches:
1. The business center is apparantly managed by an off-site service leaving you with slow and often unfriendly websites, especially when you try and print a boarding pass. When you see the computers showing 'eastern time' you can guess there may be a few 'bugs'.
2. The elevator from the courtyard to the upper floors has some very noticeable "noise" problems so don't get a room near it. The main elevator door #when opening and closing# rubs on some screws and other objects, making a horrible 'metal' scratching noise and the inside of the door is already showing extensive wear. LESSON: make sure your room is away from that door.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BlueBoo27 Worst Hotel Experience
This was the worst stay I have ever had at a Holiday Inn. It was 60 degrees outside and the heaters were not on. Their solution was one space heater the size of a child's soccer ball. I slept there for two nights and even after complaining the first night the heaters were still not on the next night. This hotel is nice to look at but not comfortable to stay in considering the heating issue. The front desk manager did not seem to care when I explained to her what was going on. She offered breakfast as if that was going to fix anything. I spoke to another manager whose care was very sincere. She genuinely apologized but explained there was nothing they could do about the heater not working. Needless to say I left the hotel with a cold. To top this all off this hotel also charged our credit card over $300 after they had already billed the room! As if they were charging us extra for their heater not working. It took days for them to return the money. I simply could not believe this terrible experience at a Holiday Inn. I have stayed at other Holiday Inn's at Phoenix but NEVER experienced anything like this. I will not be staying here again.
