If you want or need to stay near ASU, this is a great location. It is right off Mill Ave, near all the shops, bars and restauarants that students frequent. The room was nice and very clean, but it was too expensive for this hotel. The front desk wasn't particular helpful for information on the area, but when you are that close to campus, nthing is hard to find. It is within a couple blocks of the newer lite-rail system so you can get around and see Phoenix.
