Very well appointed hotel. Feels new. Nice evening events. Good breakfast in mornings. Room was spacious and bright. Only issue I had was my room had no desk. Only had a high table with two high chairs. I highly recommend this hotel if you need to be in this area.

This is the fifth day we have stayed at the RITdowntown. We are packing to leave in the morning and feel comforted that the shuttle that picked us up at the airport will be delivering us back there in the morning.

Stayed several nights this past week for leisure. Property location is great for ASU and surrounding areas. Building is a newer "high rise" (11 floors, I believe) with some containing a balcony, which was really nice. Staff was wonderful, always friendly and willing to help. Only gripes were: housekeeping was hit or miss with supplies (coffee, etc) and there was...
