Residence Inn Tempe Downtown/University




Discover the perfect home away from home for your wedding celebration, when you host your special day at Residence Inn Tempe. Unlike any other Residence Inn, this custom hotel has everything you need for your wedding day to thrive. Ideally located across from Arizona State University and within walking distance to bars and eateries (perfect for your after party) on Mill Avenue, the hotel's prime location is unmatched. The stylish and elegantly appointed venue spaces create a picturesque backdrop for your special day. Say "I do," in a romantic, candlelit ceremony in the Lewis Carroll Room. After the ceremony, guests can mix and mingle over cocktails next to the rooftop fire pit and discover Arizona's spectacular sunset and the best views of Downtown Tempe. Meanwhile you can pose for formal portraits and the ceremony site can be flipped to become the reception space. Or use the Lewis Carroll Room for your reception only. It perfectly complements ceremonies held at a nearby park or local chapel. Enjoy an evening filled with delicious food, toasts to your new beginning, and dancing.
