The Aloft is an affordable but cool newer hotel near the ASU campus. It has everything a business traveler needs, including lots of plugs in the rooms, good parking, clean and modern rooms and easy check-in and out. They have food available in the lobby 24/7 and hot breakfast items in the morning. All in all a very nice small... More

Close to everything. Pretty pool and a hip, entertaining bar on site. Super comfy bed. Ultra trendy and high tech decor. Great AAA discount with stellar summer rates. Exceptional Service minus the late housekeeping (6pm). Great restaurants within walking distance or Tempe Marketplace/Mesa RiverView for a short drive.

While traveling back to Texas from LA, we stopped here for the night. What a great hotel! From check-in to drinks served poolside to check-out, the service was terrific. Our room was spacious and trendy. The hotel has amenities not usually found in roadside travel. Highly recommended!

I can stay at pretty much any hotel when I travel for work and I love many of the big time resorts in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area. But, resort fees and guard gates and parking fees can all be such a drag. I'd rather take my clients out for a killer dinner. I love the consistency of Starwood brands like Aloft.... More

It is difficult to describe this hotel because it is different from all others I have visited. That isn't a bad thing. When you walk in, the reception desk is in the middle of the room. There is a pool table and tables and chairs and also a bar for your enjoyment. We visited three weeks ago and stayed two... More

Aloft Tempe is well located off the 202, about 10 minutes east of Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport. The hotel south of Scottsdale, west of Mesa and on the northern edge of Tempe. For business travelers (and coffee lovers), there is a Starbucks that is walking distance (or via drive-thru) in the strip mall directly across from the hotel. Said strip... More

Convenient to sky harbor airport and ASU. Starbucks and In-n-out burgers across the street. Basic layout but no surprises. Plenty of convenient free parking. Didn't try the pool. Good bedding. Comfortable climate control. It's not a luxury hotel but that's not why you stay here.

The immediate surroundings aren't exactly gorgeous--basically a parking lot by the river--but if you have a car this is a convenient base to stay at while visiting Phoenix and the surrounding areas. A group of us stayed for a few days to catch some spring training games in Scottsdale and Mesa (and a hockey game in Glendale). Each place was... More
