Residence Inn Tempe Downtown University

Dropping your teenager at college is one of the most emotional yet important roles you will have as a parent, and the last thing you need to worry about is where to stay for college drop-off weekend.  In just over a month, students will come to Tempe to attend Arizona State University–some starting a new chapter of their life as college students, others returning for another year of college life.  The Residence Inn Tempe Downtown/University is the perfect place to stay while settling into life at ASU.

Residence Inn Tempe Downtown University

The Residence Inn Tempe Downtown/University is a one or two-bedroom suite-style hotel in the heart of downtown Tempe, offering complimentary amenities to make your stay stress-free and convenient.



Little things like complimentary wifi, 24-hour fitness center, rooftop pool and fire pit, and flat screen tv’s with premium movie channels can make a normal hotel stay extraordinary.



More important things like complimentary buffet breakfast, fully equipped kitchens with microwave and refrigerator, pet-friendly accommodations, free grocery delivery, and luxurious bedding set the Residence Inn Tempe Downtown/ University apart from other hotels in the area.


I love the clean, modern look of the Residence Inn Tempe Downtown/University.  The hotel has the look of a hip boutique hotel, yet all the benefits of a Marriott chain, such as Marriott rewards membership points.


The rooms are huge, so the whole family can spread out without being on top of each other, and all rooms have balcony views of Tempe and the gorgeous mountains in the distance.  Each room has a full-size work area with ergonomic chairs, perfect for filling out all the last minute college paperwork.


The Residence Inn Tempe Downtown University is within walking distance of Mill Avenue, with over 100 restaurants and shops. It is also within walking distance of ASU’s Sun Devil Stadium (think college football weekends and Homecoming), making cheering on the home team easier than ever!
