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

I asked before leaving the Hotel at what time the bar closed for food and I was told Midnigh, came in at 11:40 only to find out that they decided... More

Our family was in town for spring training and this hotel served us well. We really enjoyed the nice vibe of the hotel and the rooms, the W xyz bar, and the convenience of the refresh breakfast and snack station. The location gave us great accessibility to all the various spring training facilities. The only downside was that the pool... More

I recently experienced great customer service at Aloft Tempe. I landed early in the day to find that somehow my reservation had been canceled. Jamie Metzger, the GM of the property found a room for the day and indicated that completing the week would be a challenge given the place was filled. The issue was on my end and thankfully... More
