Property Description

You’ll find us serendipitously situated across the street from Sun Devil central — the famed Arizona State University. We are also located within walking distance to all of the bustling Mill Avenue stops and shops, as well as the Tempe Town Lake action. You can take in “A” Mountain from your campus view room — after all, why not observe perfection from every angle. Here at Graduate Tempe we serve up two delicious dining spots, sure to please day and night. The laid back vibe of Tapacubo, our Mexican street food spot flows with signature leaded and unleaded margaritas perfectly paired with walking tacos and visiting food trucks are sure to satisfy every little hand crafted craving. The pool scene will add just the chill you’re in town for! Check in and check out The Normal, where diner-chic meets mom’s homemade favorites all under one cozy cool roof. From breakfast-all-day to homespun soups, share-worthy sandwiches, and tasty shakes — we’re always up for serving up a little slice of virtue. Enjoy weekend brunch, a tasty business meeting or Founders’ Day suds and classics, just let us know when you’re coming. So whether you’re dropping in for a show, 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 (#humblebrag) 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.
