Arizona is a popular state to visit for
many reasons. Among the top things to do in
Arizona is head to the Grand
Canyon, which is a truly unique destination.
If you like golf, Arizona
golf has everything you could want, and in the
winter, its mountains serve the skier's needs
very well. Many people have never seen a desert
before, and the desert landscapes of Arizona are
among some of the best in the United States.
If you are looking for hotels in Arizona, then you
are in luck, because they abound all over the state.
Whether its discount Arizona hotels you are after,
or you prefer the upscale approach, Arizona has
you covered. The Arizona weather differs greatly
between the mountains and the desert, and deciding
when to go to Arizona is largely decided on your
preference for temperatures. When you do go
to Arizona, regardless of when you are there, the
hotels in Arizona will more than cover your needs.
North to south, almost in a straight line, the
cities of Phoenix, Flagstaff and Tucson are likely entry points for flights
to Arizona, and all of these cities are worthy
of a visit. You can usually find nice discount
Arizona hotels near the major airports in these
cities, and there will be plenty of other budget
options that abound. Phoenix, being the capital
of Arizona and also its largest city will have arguably
the biggest selection of hotels in Arizona, and
the Phoenix hotels definitely cover every budget.
Among the choices for Phoenix hotels are hotels
and motels, and some world-class resorts.
Golfers can look for deals at the Phoenix hotels
and resorts, and if you want to be downtown, there
are a number of choice hotels awaiting your visit.
About 135 miles north of Phoenix, Flagstaff rests
at the crossroads of interstates 40 and 17.
Flagstaff is a mountain town, and in the winter,
skiers will want to check out the local terrain
and consider staying at one of the Flagstaff AZ
hotels. The Flagstaff AZ hotels cover every
budget, and when you stay here, you have so much
close by to explore. About 80 miles to the
north of Flagstaff is where the venerable Grand
Canyon is found, and there are a wide array of Grand
Canyon tours that can be arranged from Flagstaff.
Also, if you choose to stay at the Flagstaff AZ
hotels, the red rocks of Sedona are not far off to the south. For a real treat
near Sedona, take the chance to visit the Montezuma
Castle National Monument. To the east
of Flagstaff, near the town of Winslow, the Meteor
Crater continues to stun both scientists and casual
In the southern region of Arizona, not far from
the border of Mexico,
the beautiful city of Tucson has been growing steadily,
as have the choices for Tucson hotels. Resting
in a Sonora Desert valley, Tucson is a surrounded
by four mountain ranges, and it is a gleaming jewel.
Many people who stay in the Tucson hotels likely
have it in mind to visit Saguaro National Park,
which is nearby. Words can't do Saguaro
National Park justice, so you'll just have
to see it to believe it. Perhaps even more
qualified as a "see it to believe it"
place in Arizona is the Grand Canyon. There
are a large number of Grand Canyon hotels that you
can choose from, and in the nearby town of Williams,
there are plenty of great choices for discount Arizona
hotels. The Grand Canyon lodges are where
many visitors to the canyon stay, or at the hotels
near the South Rim, but the Flagstaff hotels more
than suffice if you have a tour scheduled.
You'll want to book your room at one of the Grand
Canyon hotels ASAP, especially during the busy
summertime, when rooms can be exceedingly hard to
come by. The Grand Canyon hotels fit every
budget and need, so if you are worried about where
to stay close to the Grand Canyon, it should be
the least of your worries.
Other places of interest in Arizona where you will
find some great Arizona hotels, are Scottsdale and Tempe.
Scottsdale, which is found adjacent to Phoenix is
known internationally for its posh, upscale aspect.
Among the Scottsdale hotels are some of the best
resorts and 5-star accommodations in the state.
Secure a room at one of the Scottsdale hotels and
you are bound to feel rather pampered. For
a nice experience for a lower price in Scottsdale,
you might consider the Best Western Papago Inn,
which The New York Times dubbed as, "Scottsdale's
finest little resort". If your budget
doesn't allow for one of the finer Scottsdale
hotels, there are choices for some of the chain
brand discount Arizona hotels. Tempe is also
found in the Phoenix area, and it is home to Arizona
State University, meaning you can bet there are
plenty of Tempe hotels to choose from.
If you are looking strictly for discount Arizona
hotels, you will find plenty of good deals online,
and if you visit some of the Arizona golf resorts
in the offseason, which is the hot dead of summer,
you can often find some significantly reduced rates.
There is so much to see and do in Arizona, that
you could really use about 3 vacations if you want
to begin to see it all. At Lake
Havasu, you can visit the Havasu
London Bridge, which is the real London Bridge.
Does that pique your interest? Come to Arizona
and get to the bottom of it all, or at least to
the bottom of the Grand Canyon, where the whitewater
rafting is some of the best in the world.
On the Utah border, Lake
Powell will dazzle you, and just outside of
Las Vegas, Lake Mead is another large Arizona lake
that is more than impressive. Wherever you
want to be in Arizona, there are plenty of Arizona
hotels where you can rest your head for the night
and do it all again tomorrow.
