“Great stay at the Courtyard Tempe Downtown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago NEW

We were in town for a family wedding and stayed our last night at the Courtyard. It was very nice, quiet and clean. The staff was super accomodating and friendly. One of the best perks was the free airport shuttle. Not only did it take us to the airport the day we left (thanks Jeremy!), but during our stay the shuttle was our free chauffeur to the Tempe Marketplace and back. I would definitely stay here again and recommend this hotel to others.

My girlfriend and I just stayed here for 3 nights, it's a great courtyard. The happy hour here is nice and the bartender Tyler is excellent, he had great recommendations on the food. I Would recommend this hotel to anyone.

I had just stayed at this Courtyard for one night for business. It is average. Not new, not old, but well kept. Just a few problems--toilet seat loose and grease spots on inside of bathroom doors. Didn't get a chance to let staff know, and Marriott has no place on their Rewards member web site to leave any comments for the property. Otherwise, the rest of the property looks good, especially the pool area. The location is very convenient to many restaurants, within walking distance.

Room Tip: Quiet rooms are on the courtyard side.

The star attraction of this hotel is the location. It's just a 90 second walk to Mill avenue and all the many, many restaurants, bars, and attractions in the area. Courtyards are not designed to be luxury hotels, but reasonably priced, very practical places to stay when you're travelling, particularly for business. And they do a great job at this, in my opinion.

The hotel itself was clean and well managed. The Courtyard's are designed for utility, and they do a great job with that. Great little mini-store for all the little items you might want (like ice cream, beer, snacks), and a very reasonable restaurant grill. They could make anything from a decent salad to sandwiches, to a decent quick breakfast in the morning.

I had a nice room overlooking the pool, which was clean and in great shape. One surprising thing is how well sound-proofed the rooms are. There is a train tracks right across the street, but the sound never once bothered me. The balcony doors are double layered (ie, two separate patio doors with a space between them). It works.

The lobby is quite good, with plentiful seating of all types, whether you want to sit and relax with a drink, eat a meal at a real table, or work on your laptop. Lots of space, good seating, good table areas. Even have little media booths with TV and DirecTV for killing a few minutes watching the news while waiting downstairs.

The only problem I had during the trip was that the air conditioning was in terrible condition, and rattled very loudly and made metal-on-metal grinding noises. Basically impossible to sleep with it running. I had to turn it completely off to sleep.

Mentioned it to the staff the next morning, and a maintenance person did do some maintenance on it, which reduced the noise, but it was still disruptive. This would have been unbearable in the summer, but I was there in December 2014, so no A/C during the evenings was just fine. I suspect they'll have it fixed properly by now.

Overall quite a good stay. The Marriott Courtyards are great places when you just need to go someplace, do what you need to do there, and get in and out with a minimum of fuss and a reasonable price.

Jeremy from guest services went out of his way to get me to the car rental location. I appreciate being treated as a neighbor.

We have stayed here at least 4 times before and have always had an outstanding experience.

A very clean hotel, friendly staff. Room A/C more on quiet side and maintained temperature well. Even got to dip in the pool and use whirl pool..those areas well kept. Hotel close to airport---they have a free shuttle, and near blocks of restaurants/eateries that seemed to have a social scene in the evening. My only gripe was some cable channel reception -- like Digital CNN, HBO etc. that were unavailable, said 'signal missing', as also many analog ones that were pretty noisy

Room Tip: Some rooms on 2nd/3rd floor seemed to have a balcony, which may be a nice thing if you wanted to sea...

Thanks for sharing your experience with other travelers. Yes, we are located near the famous Mill Avenue in Tempe and guests have the convenience of walking to great places. In addition, we are minutes from Sky Harbor airport with a complimentary shuttle or guests have the option to use the nearby light rail. Most of all we all are pleased you were comfortable and got a good nights sleep!
