    Staff was Arizona friendly, helpful and extraordinary accommodating! Our room was perfect in every way! The view from our balcony, boasting A mountain, ASU and Tempe, was luscious! We enjoyed the restaurant for a tasty breakfast and the pool was fun! We met many fun guests and can't wait to re-visit the Grand in Tempe! Thank you, Rachel!! You are a 5 star!

    There could have been a better environmental policy regarding plastics. Hotels should now have reusable mugs and spoons and avoid these plastic wrapped items (packs of sugar and stirrer)

    My two teenage sons and I stayed in a room with two queen beds overlooking ASU's Gammage performing arts center. We all thought the beds were comfortable, a nice sliding window with tiny balcony, a desk for work, a lounging chair, a little coffee/tea station. All very comfortable and quiet. Bathroom was cute and functional, with makeup mirror and hair dryer and plenty of towels, but the tile & grout might need to be upgraded soon. We were able to walk the ASU campus for a little tour and there were also a few cafes and restaurants, including a sushi bar with great happy hour specials, within walking distance. Would stay there again for sure if I needed to be in that area of Phoenix.

    We paid for breakfast at the restaurant. Slow service the morning we were there and food was okay but overpriced. My son commented, "This is a $2 diner breakfast for $10!"
