We decided to stay in town for the 4th and this place looked appealing since it was very close to the Tempe firework show. The view from the rooftop pool deck was prefect for viewing them but it was extremely crowded with a sold out hotel. We were fortunate to get a room on the 10th floor facing the north... More

New property. It was about 1 year old when we stayed, and it was already showing its age. Lots of lights that didn't work, a few things were banged up, etc.. Considering it is right by ASU and probably gets lots of students, it's in pretty good shape, but could be better maintained. The good: The service was friendly and... More

This hotel is fantastic in every way. The location is great, the rooms are new and clean, and the staff is friendly. This is the best business class hotel I've stayed at in the Phoenix area. Some comments: The internet is reasonable, at 3Mb/s, but not what I'd call fast. The elevators are SLOW. Parking is easy in the attached... More

I've visited Tempe six times in the past 3 months staying at a variety of Marriott properties. This was, by far, the best of them all. I liked the newness and the contemporary feel of the rooms. But what made it extra special was the 11th floor roof top pool, hot tub, fire pit and awesome views of the area.... More

This Residence Inn is new and it was opened late 2013 so everything is pretty new which is plus for hotels to appeal potential guests. The location is next to ASU and downtown Tempe and even if visiting ASU is not the reason just like I was, it still is a good location to access other areas of greater Phoenix... More

I recently stayed at the Residence Inn Tempe Downtown to attend ASU freshman orientation with my son. It was the perfect choice. First, its location. His orientation took place at the Memorial Union in the middle of campus. On this 110 degree day, it was an easy walk to the Union. (I know, its a dry heat!). It is also... More
