If you’re staying at the JW Marriot Desert Ridge, there are a few options for getting to the hotel from the airport if you’re not renting a car.
The first option is Transtyle. JW Marriott Desert Ridge partners with Transtyle, a sedan service.  They can arrange sedans, SUVs and larger vehicles. They can also arrange meet-and-greet pick-ups or will-call pick-ups. The advantage to using Transtyle is that the rate is a flat rate per car, not based on mileage or the number of people.  Reservations can be made by contacting them at 800-410-5479 or on their website 
The second option is SuperShuttle, which is usually lower in price.  Reservations can be made at
As in most cities, you can take a taxi, which will cost between $70 and $80 each way depending on which taxi company is used. JW Marriott Desert Ridge does not work with a specific taxi company. The Phoenix airport is also serviced by ride hailing apps, such as Uber and Lyft. This will cost $30 – $60, depending on service used.
