Strike 1: checked into my room and it smelled so bad--like someone was smoking minutes prior to me checking in. When I called the front desk they said they would have someone come bring me new keys to another room. This literally took 15-20 mins and when the guy came to the room he couldn't believe how bad it smelled...

We prefer when guests are wow'd by our hotel and service which indicates we have done all the right things. Your comments provide an opportunity for us to make improvements. I do hope your stay with us will not stop you from choosing other Marriott hotels as you travel. Please accept our apologies.

Business trip for three nights. Happy hour food was exceptional. Quiet and clean hotel. Right around the corner from Mill Ave. Within walking distance to restaurants. Close to ASU. Overall quality stay.

We are pleased your business trip brought you to our central Tempe Courtyard. It is good to learn that we exceeded your expectations and that you plan to return. I am glad you found the Bistro to be a great dining experience with all the convenience of dining in!

I was in and out of this courtyard, but they made my quick trip very enjoyable and easy. The elevator was slow, which was the only thing that was sub-par, but the employees were helpful, the kitchen got breakfast out fast, and the front desk was great helping me get to the airport for my flight. Jeremy from guest services...

This hotel was a nice surprise in this wonderful desert town. Stayed overnight on business. The hotel has been nicely updated with a fantastic contemporary feel and free, fast wifi throughout - I checked out at 1pm but because my flight wasn't until 6.30 PM they had no problem with me continuing to work in the hotel lounge. Jeremy kindly...

We booked this hotel as it is close to ASU and everything we needed. First time in Tempe and at this hotel.

I've stayed at this Courtyard numerous times for business and the stays are always very good. The rooms are clean, the service is always great, and location is good. Sometimes the nightlife noise from Mill Ave. can be heard when you are staying in a room facing Mill Ave - if this might bother you, just ask to stay in...

Clean and great amenities. I thought it had recently been updated but just well cared for. I highly recommend and is my first choice for future stays. Just ensure no hair on blanket for pull-out sofa bed.

Great location in the heart of Tempe restaurant, bar, nightlife area. Jeremy in guest services took good care of me on multiple occasions, including bringing me to the airport. Having a Starbucks in the hotel lobby meant I got my favorite coffee in the morning.

Jeremy is a valuable part of our team and we are pleased he made a difference in your stay. We love our neighborhood and are happy that is part of why you return. Starbucks has been a welcome addition to our Courtyard brand and having it in the lobby makes it convenient as well.

Good Property if you need to be in Central Tempe. Staff is nice and helpful. Price is generally right for this level of a hotel. I would be nice if parking was free. Also, the HVAC unit is right in front of the desk so the cold air is blowing on you while you are working at the desk. Overall...
