This hotel is a real gem. Not only is it so clean and well kept, it is within walking distance to most clubs and restaurants in downtown Tempe. The staff are wonderful and the hotel is well maintained and very clean.

Great room

Stayed one night for a concert at Tempe Beach Park. Great location - walking distance to Mill Avenue, the train and Tempe Town Lake. Probably the best hotel room I've ever had, and location makes it the best room I've rented in Phoenix (including the Hyatt downtown and Tapatio Cliffs). The bed was super comfy. I'll be staying here again.

Small room, Sky-high price

If you travel alone, this hotel is OK. If you travel with family, the hotel room is way too small.\nWe have 2 adults and 2 young children (age 4 and 2). There was nearly no room to walk after setting up a portable play pen for my little one.\n\nThe service was not very good, either. I called front desk to ask for just one bath towel and waited for 1 hour. I gave up and did not call the front desk again. Nobody showed up after all. The room was somehow not very clean cause my girl had eczema (rash on the skin) next morning.\n\nBreakfast buffet was good but not cheap ($9.95 per adult). I was told by the front desk staff that kids under 12 are free. But the server at the restaurant still charged us $3.95 per child. \n\nThe only good thing is this hotel is close to Arizona State University if you need to visit your friends or family at ASU, or if you are here for the conference like my husband did. There are lots of restaurants withinn walking distance.

Okay Rooms - But the price !!!

As a Marriott Rewards member I have stayed at many Marriott hotels. This one was below average. I am completely perplexed as to the price per night! I would pay $89 for this dark, old, below average room...but $269 !! No Way!! (I had reward points and stayed for free). I now know why there were hardly any people there and the pool was so nice and quiet!\nOn the plus side, it is within walking distance of many restaurants and some neighborhood shopping. There is a spa quite close for massages and facials. The rooms were adequate and clean, but quite small, dark and stuffy. The pool was very clean and refreshing. The staff must have been ok...nothing comes to mind regarding them, good or bad. I'll stay again for the close restaurants and quite, clean pool, but only if I can get a rate under $120 a night!
