What You'll Get
After navigating floating platform staircases, dodging living-room-level bosses, and searching for randomly appearing bathroom keys, most homeowners come to regret purchasing houses built by video-game designers. Today's Groupon offers respite from the chaos: for $129, you get a one-night stay inside a one-bedroom pool-view suite at the Clarendon Hotel (up to a $314 value, including a $15 hotel services fee) in the Midtown Museum District. This deal includes a $20 gift card to use on your next stay. There is no purchase limit on today's Groupon (and it can be used for any room type, not just the pool-view suite).
Experience a mini-vacation inside one of the Clarendon Hotel's spacious one-bedroom suites overlooking its award-winning pool—renowned for its underwater speakers, scalp- and shoulder-massaging water jets, bubbling fountains, two-story glass water wall, and jacuzzi that holds more than 50 people. The palatial pool is appropriately offset by an Italian tile mural accented with more 24K gold and platinum than a suitcase full of novelty belt buckles. And by night, the almost 1,000 stars etched into the pool's bottom come out to shine, creating a surreally inverted night sky that you can admire from the comfort of your 500 square feet of sweet suite. Draped in a comfy complimentary bathrobe, feel free to unwind on a large king-size bed or across two doubles, creating a human bridge for the room's troll to hide under. Mixed-media maestros, meanwhile, will want to crank the A/C to ice-cold and conduct a techno-symphony using the large flat-screen TV, free WiFi, and stereo with iPod dock. Otherwise, crank-call foreign dictators with complimentary long-distance phone calls, or host a Texas hold ’em tournament in the separate living-room area, complete with a plush sleeper sofa that gives you a clever place to stash aces.
Live Arizona sunsets can be oohed and ahhed at every night from the Clarendon Hotel's rooftop deck, which also boasts breathtaking views of the city skyline and surrounding mountain ranges. Combine three of today's Groupon for a long weekend getaway, or book even more and give yourself the solitude you need to finally solve your Rubik's Cube.
A 18.27% occupancy tax is not included in this Groupon.
TripAdvisors rated the Clarendon Hotel one of Phoenix's top 30 hotels, and awarded it an average of four owl eyes. Citysearchers give the hotel a 4.5-star average, while Yelpers give it an average of 3.5. In 2009, the Phoenix New Times called the Clarendon's pool the Best Public Pool You Didn't Know Was Public:
- The Clarendon is a gem in the desert of Arizona. From the outside, it's unassuming and blasé. But once you're inside, it's a mecca of hip but relaxed comfort, food and ambiance. The staff is amazing and the accommodations are pristine. – benjonesnyc, TripAdvisor
- This hotel is a real find - I travel frequently for business and have rarely come across a hotel that has both style and exceptional service. The staff was knowledgable [sic], friendly and abundantly helpful. The bed was delightful - one of the best nights of rest I've had on the road. – ewbrennan, Citysearch
