Excellent Hotel right next to ASU
Residence Inn by Marriott in Tempe is an excellent hotel. The staff is very courteous and attentive. The rooms are very spacious and clean; the suites with the full kitchen are really great for longer stays. Also, the free breakfast is a great touch, and also very delicious! I will continue to stay here whenever I visit Tempe.
