We decided to stay in town for the 4th and this place looked appealing since it was very close to the Tempe firework show. The view from the rooftop pool deck was prefect for viewing them but it was extremely crowded with a sold out hotel. We were fortunate to get a room on the 10th floor facing the north so we were able to watch the fireworks from our room. The staff at the front desk were awesome and treat platinum members very well. They tried to meet all of our requests even when it was extremely busy at check in. Recommend getting four key cards because you need one to run the electricity in your room and one for parking garage. One complaint I do have wad concerning the breakfast area and staff. The hours on Saturday are 7-10 am and when we came down at 9:15 we barely got a waffle cooked and then looked in the small buffet area and they had put away everything by 9:30. Not acceptable to me when it was clearly posted as 10 am close on Saturdays.
