Ok hotel in Excelent location

The hotel was in a great location on Mill Ave within walking distance to numerous bars and restaurants. Right across the street from the light rail that goes downtown. Unfortunately there was a conference going on and the rooms were not well insulated against sound. On the second floor we could hear all the people in the courtyard as if the window was open. We could also hear the people constantly walking through the hallway. If you are a light sleeper, this could be an issue. Also no locking bathroom door if that is an issue.

Great - stay & watch July 4th Fireworks

This was our 2nd time staying at this hotel to participate with the Tempe July 4th Festival. Very convenient location; can view fireworks from the hotel if you wish or walk to the beach park and enjoy the festivities. Food is always fantastic at this hotel. The only downside this stay was the pool - it was cloudy and dirty, out of the ordinary for this property.

Nothing special, and overpriced

We were charged a $200 smoking fee even though no guest smoke inside the room. Went through a 3 day long correspondence back and forth from manager to manager until finally the hotel director refunded my money

Make sure if you smoked anytime during your trip that you do not return to your room smelling as if you did so. Apparently just the smell of smoke in a room is enough to charge you a "smoking fee". To me the whole hotel had the scent of stale cigarette smoke. By the way, I'm not even a smoker.
