Our Hotel

Terrific Activities close to Your Hotel in Tempe, AZ

This isn’t a temporary trip for travelers—it’s the first of many to come. Tempe’s personality resembles Arizona’s 300 days of sunshine—bright, vibrant, upbeat, with infectious good vibes to boot. Our free 5-mile shuttle runs at almost every hour of the day, so test our local activities firsthand and without transportation worries. Where there’s water, there’s fishing, boating, rowing and good old-fashioned wading—which makes our spot next to Tempe Town Lake a perfect fit. Move from one body of water to another by visiting the new octopus exhibit at SEA LIFE Arizona Aquarium, or bring the kids to the pioneering water park Big Surf. See first-class actors perform Tony award-winning shows at ASU Gammage, or find superb stores in the Arizona Mills Mall. Never waste a moment when you are in the Valley—especially since local area events are happening every month.

Good Times are Never on the Line

From the bedroom to the boardroom to the boardwalk, Tempe offers travelers the finest upgrades, the most efficient meeting spaces and the best sights in Arizona—bar none. These qualities are made tangible at Hyatt Place Tempe/Phoenix Airport. Simple, dedicated, straightforward service—this is what guests expect, and this is what guests receive. It’s hard to call it a commute when minutes separate you from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport and Downtown Tempe. Be greeted by friendly staff in the morning and your soft linens at night. It’s easy to get the gist—our hotel is a step above the rest for a reason.


We are less than one mile to the Phoenix Light Rail station at Priest/Washington and 1.5 miles to the station on Mill Ave in the heart of downtown Tempe.  Our shuttle drops off/picks-up passengers from either station allowing guests to explore East from Mesa to downtown Phoenix stadiums, corporate offices, entertainment, restaurant and other venues.


Travel Tips

Did you know that Saguaro cacti only grow in one part of the USA?  ARIZONA.  With more than 325 days of sunshine a year, you can always plan on perfect weather.  If that's not enough to persuade you to take a trip to Arizona, consider that Arizona has the good fortune of being home to the Grand Canyon, one of the "Seven Natural Wonders of the World.”


Packing Tips:

  • Don’t forget your camera to capture unforgettable moments
  • Sunscreen, Sunglasses, and a sun hat.  Arizona is one of the sunniest cities in the U.S. year-round.
  • In the Summer (May-September) bring multiple light T-shirts, shorts, flip flops, bathing suit, and comfortable running or walking shoes. 
  • In the winter (October-April), bring a jacket with you. The days are nice. Temps in the 70's but overnight lows can drop into the upper twenties and lower thirties.
  • Leave extra room in your suitcase for souvenirs as Arizona has some great shopping.
  • Lots and lots of drinking water. It's amazing how fast you can become dehydrated.
  • Purchase a map of Arizona if you are looking to do some sightseeing to the Grand Canyon, Sedona, Flagstaff, the Mogollon Rim, or the Saguaro National Park near Tucson.



  • US & Arizona driving is on the right side of the road.
  • Car rental companies require you to be 21 with surcharges, or 25 years old to rent and drive a car
  • The legal driving age is 16 years old with a valid driver’s license
  • Speed is measured in miles per hour
  • In Arizona, texting while driving is illegal
  • Driving while consuming alcohol is illegal


Travel Services:

  • Tipping is customary when dining in the US.  Not tipping is considered distasteful.  Ask for a manager if you received poor service.
  • For restaurants, tips should be 15-20% of the total bill
  • For bar, servers should receive $1 per drink
  • 20% is customary for salon and spa services


International Cell Phones:

  • It is a good idea to check with your main cell phone provider as many cell phones without an International plan will not work in the US.
  • Ask a hotel associate to borrow an International Outlet Adapter or Universal Cell Phone Charger if you forgot yours.
