I’ve stayed here twice during COVID and multiple times pre-COVID, the most recent time was Mid-November 2020. The staff are well trained in COVID protocols to the extent it seems natural. Same outstanding Marriott service level with some of the services like food and beverages offered safely. The place is immaculate and you can see staff regularly cleaning high touch surfaces. I have zero concerns about staying here during this time and I look forward to returning when this has past!

This was my first time staying at an AC hotel and I was very impressed. When I arrived the front desk agent was wonderful and very helpful. The room was spotless. This is a newer hotel as well. I went down to the lounge for dinner and I was amazed by the quality of food. I had the Chicken and fried rice. It was to die for. I also went up to check out the pool. It is an amazing feature. I would highly recommend this hotel.

I will second your "wow" with one of my own in saying "wow! Thank you so much for the excellent review Mdawg91!" I'm so pleased to hear about your experience at our hotel and I hope you get the chance to stay at many more AC Hotels in the future. The brand was brought into North America from Europe in 2014 and you will certainly find that many of the hotels are less than 4 years old. Our F&B Director, Mike, is one of the best in the brand and I'm so happy you got to taste some of his wonderful creations. We look forward to welcoming you back and make sure to try our Signature Gintonic next time with Hendrick's, Fever Tree Mediterranean Tonic, Star Anise, Cucumber, and a Lemon Twist....Delicious! iSalud!

I’ve stayed here several times — it’s my go to hotel in Phx. Nice rooms and lobby, great access to trails for running (hill and a river) close to Tempe restaurants, close to the airport. Highly recommended.

Thank you so much UtahMikester for making AC Tempe your "go-to" hotel while traveling to the Phoenix area. Our central location, walking distance to everything, and 5 minute Uber from Sky Harbor Airport is part of what makes us so desirable and thank you for taking notice! We can't wait to welcome you back in the near future!! iSalud!

We stayed in AC Tempe back in 2019 for an Ironman event and we were planning to return once again for 2020, but COVID strikes, and all our plans were canceled. This is a great hotel, perfectly placed for the event, clean and modern, but my major reason to come back every year is the great customer service I've received even without staying this lats time... Kelly Mosher the operations supervisor proactively helped me to cancel my reservation without penalties, she was very understandable with a great demeanor and attitude towards clients. I highly recommend this hotel not only for the Ironman event but for your stay in Tempe. Looking forward to booking again with AC Tempe in 2021.

Amazing! Thank you so much MMerino for taking the time to review our hotel based off your stay last year! We were so sorry to hear that the event was cancelled, but truly wanted to do the right thing for all of our guests/participants that missed out on competing this year. Kelly is truly one of our best and thank you so much for taking notice!! We can't wait to welcome you back to the property next year! iSalud!

Very friendly staff. Excellent food and drink. Great fitness center and rooftop pool (salt not chlorine). Sanitizers everywhere. Everything was very clean. Quiet and comfortable rooms and location. Less then five minutes walk to get to Hayden Peak or walk along the Salt River.
