“Great convenient place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

I stayed here over a wedding weekend. The hotel is conveniently located in downtown Tempe and within walking distance of everything I wanted to do. Hayden Butte, Tempe Center for the Arts, Tempe Beach Park, many restaurants and nightlife. The hotel staff was very nice and even let me take the hotel shuttle back to the airport after I checked out the night before. The gal at the desk said " you are still our guest" which exceeded my expectations. The pool area is very nice. Resort quality beds. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: I picked the 3rd floor since it was a football weekend, less noise this way.

I stayed here over a weekend with a friend to attend an ASU football game. Very good service from a friendly staff (front desk, bartender, cleaning staff), clean room, perfect location, strong A/C, convenient parking -- not sure what else I could have wanted (better toiletries, perhaps?). Note, of course, that this is a Courtyard, so you cannot expect a full restaurant service, etc., but that is just the nature of the property.

Room Tip: The lower the number (eg, 224 vs 277), the closer to the lobby elevators (which is good, considering...

Spent the weekend at the Courtyard Tempe Downtown and found it to be a nice, clean hotel. Was in town for a ASU football game and the location was the prime reason for selecting this property. It is within easy walkjng distance of the stadium and is the perfect locale for the pre and post game activities. Even though I was disappointed that there wasn't a complimentary breakfast or even beverages I would stay there again just because of the location.

We stayed here while moving our daughter into ASU. The staff was extremely friendly and very helpful. They offered to store some of our luggage (my daughter had ALOT) to make our room more comfortable and helped us dispose of extra boxes we acquired from purchasing stuff our daughter needed. However, the room was spacious enough that it held all the luggage without making us feel cramped up. The room was very comfortable and the cold AC was great after some long hot days out in the Arizona sun (it also stayed on at night and didn't have the motion detector cut-off we've seen in other hotels). Some of the other reviews said they heard train noises outside their windows - we heard none of that. Also, they have hot coffee and flavored creamers in the lobby in the AM which was much better than the coffee they supplied in the room. All in all, a solid choice and great customer service for what was a somewhat stressful event for us.

Moving your daughter into ASU is an exciting yet emotional time. We are pleased to be able to offer assistance with additional bags and boxes during the process. Our team will be pleased to learn you found them friendly and helpful as that is our goal for every guest experience! Many guests love the option to have Starbucks right in our lobby throughout the day and evening. During the heat of our summer months we know how important great air conditioning becomes for our guests. I am pleased you found comfort both day and night! While we are located along the train route through Tempe, our special windows eliminate the noise as they pass through the city. As you visit your daughter throughout her college years, we look forward to welcoming you to our hotel. Please stop in to say hello!

The front desk staff and van driver provided excellent service. I had forgot several items for a business meeting and did not realize until a few hours before my meeting. The morning was busy this morning, but he was able to work in a quick trip to a local store for me and never missed his scheduled runs. I made my meeting with time to spare. THanks.

We used this location as our hotel base for our 20 year reunion that took place at Macayo's Depot Cantina just down the street. And it was perfect for what it was! A well priced, conveniently located hotel that was clean and quiet. We had no outside noise in our room, never heard anyone in the halls, slept great in the uber comfy bed & super clean room and enjoyed the clean pool area. The only HUGE wish would be to provide complimentary coffee/water in the lobby. The lobby did have a nice little bistro with reasonably priced food and drinks and also had cool little niches to munch and your own TV to watch whatever you wanted. Overall, it was wonderful and I would recommend it to anyone. I was hoping as the coordinator of the reunion/group booking we would have been able to receive a complimentary upgrade but was told that wasn't a possibility. It wasn't a big deal but it would have been a nice little touch.

Room Tip: 3rd floor facing the courtyard was quiet.

Booked the hotel with free breakfast, and when we asked for the free breakfast, starbucks kiosk person said no free buffet. We were in a rush for an ASU appointment and paid just under $20 for seemingly micro french toast and oatmeal. I could not find the receipt later in the day for a refund. The desk person looked through the receipts, but then realized that cash puchases do not generate a hotel copy. I was to seek out the kiosk person the next day to see if she recalled me and our order...
We found out that we are to sign a full room charge, and the computer will determine if the charge goes on our bill. I am annoyed at myself for losing the receipt, and the hotel for the lack of clarity on their procedures. It's only $20, but I'm annoyed. We usually seek out Marriotts, but in our next few appointments at ASU I will look at the other hotels serving the campus.
