I stayed at this property for three nights as part of a business trip to nearby Arizona State - West Campus (5 minutes). Overall, the experience was great. I was unfortunately sick with the flu for most of the trip, but the staff and facility was still very good.
- Fast and VERY pleasant check-in. Front desk clerk greeted me by name and made sure that I knew where everything was on the property. When he heard I was heading to ASU West, he went the extra mile and printed me a Google map of directions. I was very impressed.
- Clean, spacious room and a HUGE walk-in shower (no bathtub).
- Large work desk with plenty of outlets.
- Free snacks (including cup-of-soups, tea, granola bars, trail mix, etc.) and drinks (soda, water, Gatorade, juices, etc.).
- Multiple meeting and social areas (game rooms). This property is part of the Thunderbird School campus, so the areas' presence made sense.
- Free parking to inn guests.
- Checkout was also quick and pleasant.
IMPORTANT ITEMS OF NOTE:
- Some rooms (including mine) have exterior entrances. If this is not your preference (for security reasons or otherwise), be sure to request an interior entrance room.
- The Inn is on the campus of the Thunderbird School of Global Management. GPS directions to the Inn do not include entering the campus from one of its two main entrances. Instead of relying on your GPS, enter the campus and follow the signs to the Executive Inn.
If I have business in this area of Glendale again, I will definitely stay here.
