“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I was on a short visit to Tempe and decided to stay at the Courtyard Tempe Downtown. The location was great. It was close to the airport, restaurants and public transportation. Everyone from Igna at the Front Desk to Jeremy at Guest Services were friendly and went out of their way to make my stay pleasant. I was very pleased with my room which had a king size bed, sitting area and very clean. I would stay there again if ever visiting Tempe again.

This was a good experience for me. I was a little turned off at first because of the price. Luckily my stay was in the middle of off season so the front desk person discounted my nights by $30 a night. The rooms were clean and within walking distance to shops and food. Would be more than happy to stay there on my next visit to the Phoenix area.

Room Tip: Courtyard view is the way to go.

Telling others you would return is the greatest compliment we can receive! So much of what brings guests back is due to the clean and comfortable hotel we provide. The rest is how convenient we are to shopping, dining and the ASU campus. There are options for getting around and they include our hotel shuttle to the airport and local venues or the light rail which gives access to downtown Phoenix as well. Thank you for your comments!

I have stayed at this hotel many times over the last 6 years or so. The rooms are comfortable and well appointed for business. The internet is reliable. They have updated the lobby and added the Bistro for drinks and meals. The staff has always been helpful and polite.


The only drawback is the ongoing construction next door and the occasional train passing by. The train is less of an issue now that they don't blow the whistle each time they pass through.

What a great compliment you give our hotel and our team by returning for over 6 years! As a part of the Marriott hotel family, we have focused on providing what we know our guests enjoy and need to be comfortable. One of those is the reliable WIFI which is complimentary for our guests. Another is to be consistently updating our look and feel with design improvements. We have added the very popular Bistro which serves creative and delicious meals and snacks plus Starbucks beverages our guests enjoy having conveniently located in the lobby! I am pleased to pass along your praise for the staff who strive to be able to assist when needed and help guests connect with the neighborhood and the places of interest in our city. Yes, the train still passes nearby occasionally and now does so without any train whistle to be as quiet as possible. Our neighborhood improvements do involve construction sounds during daylight hours; and, like you, we will be happy when the project is completed in the near future. We do look forward to serving you in the future. Thanks for your review.

In the heart of downtown. Easy walking distance to shopping, restaurants and entertainment.

Close to Skyharbor Airport. Free shuttle.

Can be noisy. Main fire station around the corner. Light rail line nearby.

Daily charge for parking.

Room was comfortable and clean. Size was modest by Courtyard standards. More like a standard Marriott.

We are pleased to hear about your stay at our Tempe Courtyard! You list many of the reasons why guests choose our hotel when traveling to Arizona. Our location is prefect for getting around the ASU campus, visiting nearby corporate offices and seeing the sites throughout the Valley of the Sun. With our complimentary shuttle to nearby places as well as the airport, convenience is a real benefit for any guests. In addition, the light rail is reasonable and provides transportation to the airport plus downtown Phoenix where guests can see Major League baseball or basketball games. We are happy you got a good night's sleep in our comfortable beds! That is a must for any traveler. Thanks for staying and please visit again.

We ended up here after walking out of another hotel (See my review of the Tempe Ramada.) We were tired, and literally went to the first place I found on Tripadvisor. If I had taken the time to do more research, I probably would have selected another hotel. This one charges $8/night for parking, and was about 20% more per night than comparable hotels that offer breakfast. Even with AAA discount, it was just a little expensive for what it is. No breakfast, no coffee in the lobby... Just a high priced "bistro" that we didn't bother to try.
We were in the room on Saturday morning until about 10:30. At that time, I took the "do not disturb" sign off of the door, and expected the room to be made up when we returned at around 5. It wasn't. I asked the front desk if we could have maid service while we were out to dinner, and I was told there was no one available to do it, but I could get fresh towels from her. So, we paid much more than neighboring hotels, and didn't even get our room made up. A little disappointing for a Marriot. That said, the room was clean, beds were very comfy, and the airport noise wasn't an issue for us. The location is great, close to everything we were in town for. Staff was friendly. In a pinch I would stay here again, but I think I will shop a little more carefully next time we are in town.

We appreciate your taking the time to share your experience with others and are pleased you found the beds comfy and the staff friendly . With our downtown Tempe location we are close to everything you may need to visit from the campus to great dining and entertainment. Most places are within walking distance of the hotel. Thanks for the heads up about weekend maid service. We strive to provide the very best service and will be reviewing our weekend service practices.

This hotel is in a great location. Close to the airport and lots of places to grab a bite nearby. The place is clean and the staff is very nice. My room was big with a soft bed. Marriott will not let you down.

What a great compliment! It is our intention as a Marriott hotel to have every guest feel that we will not let you down. One of the best things we can do is provide you with a comfortable bed so you can get a good nights rest while traveling. Many guests enjoy our close proximity to the Phoenix Airport and that downtown Tempe is right out our parking lot with numerous restaurants and places to see. For ASU guests, the campus is also within walking distance! Our team will be pleased you found everyone treated you well! Nearby is our light rail to add extra options for those without transportation. Thanks for your review!

The very best compliment you could give us would be to return! Thank you sincerely for letting others know about your "Outstanding" service from all of our team! They will be pleased to know they WOWed you! Many guests also like the quiet of the pool area for swimming, sun bathing or simply relaxing with a meal or beverage. With our location so close to ASU's campus, many events and activities are within walking distance which eliminates the need to find parking. The famous Mill Avenue hosts so many great restaurants and entertainment sites, there really is something for everyone. We look forward to your return! Bring your friends!
