“Good location for Tempe but has to be noisiest hotel I have ever stayed in”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2011 via mobile

As other reviewers have pointed out the location is great for access to downtown Tempe and it's many eateries but forget about a quiet nights sleep. The railroad runs right by the hotel with freight trains tooting as they pass at midnight, 5am, 6am .........it is also on the main approach path to the airport. Landings start from 5.50am and go on beyond 10pm. Nice new lobby though and rooms are a decent size.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2011

Just two blocks from vibrant downtown Tempe, this is a great location to park and walk to dozens of restaurants and shops. However, this property is beginning to show a lack of maintenance. The rooms themselves are OK; standard Marriott. But, the ice machine on our floor was dead, the printer in the lobby did not work, the air conditioner in our room was faulty. I called the front desk in the evening to report the broken ice machine. They said that they would look into it, but did not offer to bring us ice nor direct us to a working machine. All problems were reported to the front desk at checkout. The clerk was pleasant, but did not offer any compensation; she simply said that she hoped our day was better than our stay at the hotel!

Room Tip: If you stay here, you may want to inspect your room first to see if everything is actually working.

A group of our friends traveled to Arizona to see the Steelers v. Cardinals. The hotel is only about 10 mins from the Sky Harbour Airport (PHX) and they have a free shuttle that will pick you up. In fact, they will pretty much take you anywhere in the area within reasonable distance.

We got a group rate and only paid 89/night for a room with two doubles. They even gave us mini fridges free of charge.

The hotel is within walking distance of the Mill Street District which has some great restaurants and bars. I recommend the Tavern on Mill, we got amazing local info from the bartenders there. Casey Moore's Oyster house was also great

The hotel was about 2 hours from Sedona and 30 minutes from Glendale which is where University of Phoenix Stadium, where the Cardinals play.

I would definitely stay here again. Service was great, all the staff were very helpful and friendly.

Great hotel, very clean and comfortable, staff were friendly and helpful. Good location for old town Tempe and Tempe town lake. The only thing that stopped it being a 5/5 was it's proximity to the train line, I got woken at 04.30 by the horns of a passing freight train, but the beds are so comfortable I went right back to sleep. Would definately stay again

April 2011 was the second year Arthritis Introspective help its national conference at this hotel and we were once again, blown away by the quality customer service and the way the staff went out of its way to accommodate the needs of our organization and conference attendees! The remodel was beautiful and the property and rooms are clean and beautiful. There wasn't a request that wasn't met. This review comes late, but with heartfelt appreciation and five star rating!!

Room Tip: They are all good rooms. The "suites" are awesome.

We stayed during a football game at ASU and the hotel was within walking distance to bars, restaurants and even the stadium. Best of all, the staff was friendly, helpful and the customer service was outstanding - especially the front desk. Would absolutely stay again.

I stayed in this hotel on business for 4 nights. My room was opposite the pool which was a nice view. Even though it was on the ground floor and I was a woman on my own I felt safe. The bed was huge and extremely comfortable. The room was perfect for my stay and very clean. The bathroom was nice and clean with a nice bath and shower. There were toiletries a hairdryer and iron and ironing board. There was free coffe in reception as well as the tea and coffee being refilled in my room each day. I had some laundry done while I was there which came back promptly and clean and pressed. Breakfast was good with a good variety. Free internet in reception which was handy for work. A pleasant stay and I would go back even with my family if I was city hopping. The only downside was there was no freephone from the airport so you need to take the number with you to phone for the shuttle bus to pick you up.

Room Tip: I think my room was 212 which was nice.
