You'll find us serendipitously situated across the street from Sun Devil central - the famed Arizona State University. We are also located within walking distance to all of the bustling Mill Avenue stops and shops, as well as the Tempe Town Lake action. You can take in "A" Mountain from your campus view room - after all, why not observe perfection from every angle. The pool scene will add just the chill you're in town for! **Please note that the Pool and Rooftop Lounge will be closed 2/7/19 - 2/17/19 for renovations. Check in and check out The Normal, where diner-chic meets mom's homemade favorites all under one cozy cool roof. From breakfast-all-day to homespun soups, share-worthy sandwiches, and tasty shakes - we're always up for serving up a little slice of virtue. Our rooms are ready for a night like you've never had before, where little moments of surprise and discovery will meet you down every corridor and around each corner. This is Graduate - get ready to be inspired.

Hello amyspooky, I want to thank you very much for your candid review of your recent stay at our hotel. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed our hand-crafted hotel, restaurants, and friendly staff. Because of all of the events in and around Tempe, hotel prices are high during March. Outside of March I think you will find pricing more inline with what your expectations. Our hotel aims to provide a truly unique experience, we are thrilled you enjoyed the hotel and we hope to be welcoming you back in the future. Kind Regards,

I stayed at the Graduate Hotel Tempe for a conference. Friendly and helpful front desk people, and the room was comfortable. I even got a $5 beverage voucher for skipping housekeeping services for one night (optional). But talk about understated! When I arrived my first night,

I had someone suggest I stay here for a business trip. It was okay. The rooms were older and very small and old bathroom. The bed comfortable not so much the pillows. It was clean. Location right at ASU campus. They did have a restaurant and bar but could charge anything

Initially when we arrived the hotel seemed dark, room small and stuffy and we were disappointed. The people working at the hotel saved the day. It was late and the person at the reception got a shuttle to take me to fast food place. Next morning different staff member was very

Hello Idjs, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a candid review our hotel. We pride our selves on breathing new life into existing hotels so our guests can relive and create new memories. Unfortunately that also means some of our rooms are not as big as a brand new hotel. I'm glad to hear that our staff was able to get you in to a room that was to your expectations. We hope to host you again on your next visit to Tempe. All the best,
