Anyone who has visited Tempe, Arizona, knows that Mill Avenue is a veritable portal into the past and present. Psychedelic head-shops sit adjacent to beer joints, pizza parlors, the occasional upscale restaurant, ASU fashion outlets, old-book stores, and souvenir shops. It also becomes obvious that Tempe nights belong to partiers. Both current and former ASU students descend upon Mill Avenue like "biters" stalking Atlanta in The Walking Dead." For those reasons, one becomes truly grateful the Marriott Courtyard-Tempe is off the beaten path of Mill Avenue. It's only a couple of blocks, but far enough to make the Courtyard a "safe zone" from the Mill Avenue throngs.
The hotel itself is all one could ask for: clean, accessible, comfortable, welcoming, WiFi equipped, and staffed by a dedicated group of employees whose chief aim is your comfort. Drawbacks are few, but do exist. For instance, the hotel marketplace is truly minimal. Secondly, food service is a la carte and a little expensive. One can quickly miss the free food happy hour of the nearby Residence Inn and its bountiful breakfast.
Granted, the Courtyard is usually less expensive than the Residence Inn, but addressing the few issues cited above would go a long ways towards making the Courtyard a first choice rather than a Residence Inn default.
