The Tempest Hotel ~ Tempe’s Premier Boutique Destination

The Tempest Hotel — a 52-room property in the heart of Tempe, seconds away from Arizona State University. Blessed with year round Arizona sunshine, greater Phoenix and Scottsdale at its fingertips, as well as a surrounding desert landscapes made for exploring,

The Tempest Hotel caters to a wide variety of travelers.

Desert Inspired Design 

Interiorly and exteriorly, the hotel’s design references local, natural materials and sensibilities — creating a true sense of place and “authentic” Arizona feel.

Upon entering the lobby, guests will be charmed by a living room-style space with warm and soothing color palettes, and inviting kitchen-café for guest use, and walls adorned with eclectic artwork that allude to the tastes of The Tempest Hotel’s hip clientele.

Out of the 52 guestrooms — including 11 suites with ADA accessibility — the hotel pairs polished furnishings with desert tones, a made-to-feel-comfortable setting that acts as a nod to the surrounding locale.

However, perhaps the hotel’s most hallmark features are on the outside — a refreshing pool for guests looking to cool down from the heat, and inviting beer garden, as well as a can’t-miss mural on the building’s side, which features a giant Saguaro Cactus, Pigmy Owl and the buttes of the Sonoran Desert.
