Tempe Mission Palms, a Destination Hotel, is inviting guests to #Stay4aCause this holiday season. Through Dec. 31, 2017, guests will receive a discounted room rate during a very popular time of year in Arizona, when other hotels tend to increase their prices. They’ll also enjoy Tempe Mission Palms Hotel’s proximity to Arizona State University, and some of the best holiday events and celebrations in the Valley.

Best of all, a portion of their stay will be donated to Phoenix Children’s Hospital, which will specifically benefit the Hope Fund, which helps launch critical new programs, purchase essential equipment, conduct cutting-edge research, provide charitable care, supports in-hospital programs such as The One Darn Cool School, Animal-Assisted Therapy, Camp Rainbow, and much more.

“This is a win-win for our guests, and for children in need in our community,” said Eric Sather, General Manager of Tempe Mission Palms Hotel. “Guests receive a very competitive room rate during a popular time of year, and Arizona’s littlest patients directly benefit from every dollar that’s donated.”

Guests who #Stay4aCause between Nov. 20 and Dec. 31, 2017 when using the PCH2017 code will receive 15 percent off the hotel’s best rate. Tempe Mission Palms Hotel will also donate 10 percent of their room revenue to the children’s hospital. Guests can book their #Stay4aCause by calling the hotel at 480-894-1400 or booking on Tempe Mission Palms’ website by visiting destinationhotels.com/tempe-mission-palms and using the promo code PCH2017.

“For every program and service we’re able to offer, amid every achievement and success, its people who make it possible,” said Steve Schnall, Senior Vice President and Chief Development Officer of Phoenix Children’s Hospital Foundation. “Business and community leaders like those at Tempe Mission Palms Hotel help us to deliver world-class care to children and families in Arizona and throughout the Southwest.”

With 303 guest rooms, two restaurants and a heated rooftop pool, Tempe Mission Palms is conveniently located in the heart of downtown Tempe, and is within walking distance of Arizona State University, and more than 100 restaurants, bars and shops in the Mill Avenue District, as well as several popular events taking place this holiday season, including:
