1.79 mi from city center
Best Rooms: Rooms overlooking the pool and courtyard offer better views than other rooms overlooking the surrounding parking lots.
Best Rooms: The property is located downtown, so views are limited. However, odd-numbered rooms have better city views, especially from floors 10 and higher; these views are available in just about every room category.

Best Rooms: Although Residence Inn by Marriott Phoenix is surrounded by the parking lot, rooms facing the pool offer a nice view.
