Southwest Style with a Desert Nod

Welcome to Graduate Tempe – where your intellectual curiosity meets your favorite place to stay.

You’ll find us serendipitously situated across the street from Sun Devil central—the famed Arizona State University. We are just a short walk to all of the bustling Mill Avenue stops and shops, as well as nearby Tempe Town Lake and ASU Gammage theater.

We serve up two delicious eateries that are sure to please day and night. Enjoy Tapacubo, our Mexican street food spot, flowing with signature leaded and unleaded margaritas and a spin on traditional Mexican dishes. Check in and check out The Normal, where diner-chic meets homemade classics or walk up to our juice and coffee bar—all under one cozy cool roof.

So, whether you’re dropping in for a bite, showing off the Alma Mater or have a to-do here in town, we’re here to make it memorable. Our warm, friendly and whip smart staff can guide you to and around Tempe’s finest, so that you feel like a local, at home again even if it’s your first time here.

Our rooms are ready for a night like you’ve never had before, where little moments of surprise and discovery will meet you down every corridor and around each corner. This is Graduate – get ready to be inspired.

Pet Friendly

We love furry friends probably a little more than the next guy and would never dare ask you leave them at home during your travels. In fact, when you bring your four-legged companion along for the ride, they stay for free. Plus, we’ve teamed up with our pals at BarkBox to make your pup’s stay extra special. When you check in with Fido, he’ll receive a complimentary BarkBox as well as a bowl and blanket to enjoy during his stay*.

*BarkBoxes are complimentary. If you wish to take the bowl or blanket home with you, they are available for purchase through our front desk.

Graduate Tempe fitness center with ellipticals

24-Hour Fitness Center

Get that heart rate up or pump iron whenever you please in our 24-hour fitness center, or swim laps in our outdoor pool. Want to work out like you did in the glory days? We have reciprocity with the ASU gym, only a short walk down the street. Ask our front desk for details.

Shuttle Service

We always think a town is best explored by bike or on foot, but if your destination is a little further than you’d prefer to hoof it, we’re happy to give you a lift in our complimentary shuttle. Shuttle service is also available to pick you up and drop you off from the Phoenix airport*.

*Based on availability. Please call ahead of time to make reservations.
