We chose this hotel because of the proximity to the CoAmerica theatre. Growing up in Phoenix, I was somewhat apprehensive regarding location on Van Buren. We walked 2 blocks to the theatre with no issues. There were a few unfortunate souls in the area but no one bothered us. The street was well lit and the signage from the hotel was very bright. We walked back around 11:30. Several others were walking along also. As for the room, to be honest I thought it would be okay but we were delightfully surprised to find a very appealing room upon opening the door. Huge king bed, very nicely made up. A flat screen TV, wifi and immaculate bathroom with nice linens. There were soap and shampoo dispensers on tub wall. ( actually full)! Hair dryer, ironing board, microwave and mini refrigerator. We had a good nites sleep! Felt safe. And one of the best things is being able to check in at 1:00 rather than 3 or 4 like so many other places. We will definitely tell our concert going friends and you will see us again. Congratulations on your remodel and your staff that keep things the way they should be!

I was not dissappointed with what i saw when i lodged at this hotel. Clean room. Proximity to the convention center was a plus. The internet connection using the wifi is superbly fast. The breakfast, however, is monotonous. The staffs were very friendly and courteous, always willing to assist. There was no coffee in the room. The availability of an iron and ironing board makes ironing very easy. Overall i enjoyed my stay. I will do it again if i find my self in phoenix.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

I'd checked on other people's reviews before booking this facility and I'm glad I wasn't disappointed. The hotel has been newly refurbished and much of the furnishings and decor is in very good condition. It's location is good as its within walking distance to the phoenix convention center and other shops and restaurants in downtown phoenix, there's also a train station nearby if you need to go a longer distance. The hotel staff were friendly, courteous and helpful and the rooms were cleaned daily throughout my stay there. my only complaints was the traffic noise outside could be too loud at times and disturb your sleep so coming with ear plugs is advisable. Also, I couldn't make local or long distance calls from my room which unfortunately couldn't be fixed by the front desk. Also the breakfast is very basic and monotonous but I guess that should be expected from a budget hotel. Overall still a nice place to stay especially if on a short business trip to downtown phoenix.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms are quieter and have less traffic disturbance.

I had a wonderful time at this superb facility. The interior decor is unbelievable well kept, a fast Internet connectivity that kept me with my family at button press. The continental breakfast serve makes it very easy during my stay. The management was highly courteous and ever ready to assist their customers. I strongly recommend this facility to all people visiting Phoenix.

Room Tip: The rooms at the east and south wards are quitier

Clean room, recently refurbished, with a pretty large LCD TV screen (37”?) with a bunch of Dish Network channels, a mini-fridge (bigger than the smallest ones, but still small), m/w, desk and chair, and a comfortable bed. Free local AND long distance calls, and free wifi that worked well. Did not try (or even see) the mini breakfast. The only negative was road noise, and thanks to other reviews I came prepared with ear plugs, so it wasn’t really a problem. The staff we interacted with were all helpful and friendly.
