Except for its location (close to campus and tram stop), this is one of Marriott's weakest properties. The whole hotel is dated. While rooms are spacious enough, there are no mini-fridges in the rooms. The AC is too weak (insufficiently cool in the summer or warm in the winter). The wifi is not that strong. The fitness center and the...

Hotel is in fantastic location. Right on campus. Rooms are good sized and comfy. Can be noisy from the bars and restaurants at night. But location makes up for it. What doesn't work is the restaurant in the hotel. Service is unbelievably non existent. Sat at a table for over 30 mins waiting to be served. No menu no one...

Thank you for writing a review of the University Park Marriott. It does surprise me that your service in the restaurant was not good as most of the reviews I receive tell me how attentive the restaurant staff actually is. I apologize for it not being good for you and will discuss it with the restaurant manager. Thank you for...

This hotel is on a great location. I need to explain first that I get a really good rate with the company I am working for and I am Lifetime platinum on Marriott so that gets me the 9th floor and access to the executive lounge. The hotel is clean, the beds are comfortable, the AC work great and no...

Recently returned from my second stay at this property near the university campus. There on business - with 200 people or so all staying at the same property. The staff at this property is fabulous - kind, helpful, and prepared for our large group. Some issues with the room - no hot water for some of our attendees - which...

Thank you for filling out a review of the hotel and I'm happy that you appreciate the staff. We did have a mechanical problem with a booster pump for the domestic hot water and that has been repaired. Thank you again for your comments and Happy New Year.

Great stay. Went to the Arizona Bowl and this hotel is perfectly located. Within walking distance are many great restaurants--some with discounts for hotel patrons. Campus is within easy walking distance, but for those wanting to ride, golf-cart transportation was available for tips. Staff was very friendly, room was excellent and quiet. Breakfast was very good. Even though it was...

Pleasant staff, convenience to downtown and U of A, and price are the strengths of this place. Unfortunately, it is dated and showing it. The John Portman atrium style of the previous century is quite stale. Why the planter boxes on each level are not adorned with plantings escapes me. Flowers in these boxes would transform the dull, monochrome appearance...

I stayed at this property between Christmas and New Year when the University was not in session. The hotel is the old atrium style with two elevators serving 9 floors. The hotel desperately needs remodeling and freshening. The rooms are tired and the bathroom was in pretty sad shape. I went to the Executive Lounge and immediately left, as there...

The Hotel is old and in serious need of refurbishments. From stained carpets to scuffs and dings in walls the hotel is overall just dirty and worn down. The lounge/bar needs to be closed in, the whole atrium open affect amplifies all the bar atmosphere well up to the 6th floor so if your there for business and need the...

We were in town to see a show at Centennial Hall (on Campus) and picked this hotel as it was very close. It is a large hotel with an atrium. The rooms are comfortable and quiet. The staff was friendly. There is a restaurant which had a limited menu but the food was fine.
