From the makers who brought us the W Hotel, comes the new and ultra chic Aloft Tempe hotel, which made its Valley debut just four months ago. And lucky for us, the new hotel a la mode features summer benefits not only for its guests, but for its trusty locals too. So while other resorts may hound you for top dollar in exchange for a day by their fabulous pool or entrance to their exclusive day party, Aloft Tempe welcomes non-hotel guests with only a $5 entrance fee to partake in their Saturday summer pool parties featuring drink specials and of course, a trendy DJ. Check out what else us locals have to look forward too this summer at the newest addition to Tempe cityscape…
