There are 100 guest rooms and suites inside this attractive AZ resort, recently redesigned in order to live up to the hotel’s high standards. Décor throughout the hotel is focused on combining contemporary and native influences, using a mixture of natural colors and eclectic, varied furniture. Headboards are made from trees that fell nearby, lines are sleek and sharp like desert flats, and accent colors calls to mind verdant foliage or wild desert flowers. The whole place is undeniably influenced by its location in the heart of the Southwest.
All guest rooms and suites come with pillow-top mattresses, Atelier Bloom bathroom products, complimentary high-speed WiFi, a flat-screen TV with DVD player, soft bathrooms to relax in, and a workstation desk with ergonomically designed chair for the more business-minded. Other features, such as balconies or bathroom configurations, vary from room to room.
The Patio Guest Room is the basic guest room, offering either one king-sized bed or two queen-sized beds. There’s a private balcony or patio complete with furniture, where you can sit out with a drink in the balmy Arizona evenings.
The Courtyard Guest Room also comes with a private patio or balcony, which specifically offers views of the hotel’s courtyard and its infinity zero-edge saltwater pool that guests can use for invigorating dips. There’s 380 square feet of space giving plenty of room to spread out and by choosing two queen-sized beds, you can sleep up to four guests.

The Spa Guest Room sprawls to 400 square feet, with its king-sized bed in the middle. The bathroom features a jetted soaking tub, and its private outdoor space also faces out over the hotel’s courtyard and saltwater pool.
In contrast on the other side of the building, the balcony or patio from the Creekside Guest Room showcases the natural splendor of Oak Creek. The room clocks in at a comfortable 380 square feet, providing plenty of space around its plush king-sized bed.
The Creekside Studio Spa Suite shares this gorgeous view, and its king-sized bed comes paired with a sofa bed in its spacious living room which totals 670 square feet of space. There’s a jetted bathtub in the bathroom, and a private furnished patio facing out over the meandering creek. The top of the range Creekside One Spa Bedroom Suite is pretty much the same in terms of facilities, but its space extends to 720 square feet, making it the most luxurious option.
A variety of accessible accommodations are also available for the Patio Guest Rooms, and the Accessible Creekside Spa Suite. Possible adjustments include tubs with grab bars, communications features and roll-in showers.
Rollaway beds are available in some rooms for a charge, but maximum room occupancy is capped at four people. Cribs and playards are also available to rent for no charge from the hotel. So, a family of four with one child and one infant could rent a king-sized room and opt for a rollaway bed and crib to maximize space.

This charge covers high-speed WiFi access, a hotel shuttle that offers transport within a one-mile radius of the resort, use of the relaxation room and steam room in the spa, valet parking, fitness center access and daily yoga classes.
