Quoting Chi-town (Reply 5): Somewhere reasonable near downtown that is not too shabby.
Honestly I would stay in Downtown Tempe or Downtown Scottsdale versus Downtown Phoenix ("downtown" is the fashionable word out here now). Although closer for games and stuff it pretty much shuts down at night. Tempe and Scottsdale offer way more to do.

Seeing that you appear to be a Cubs fan, (sorry about that), the Marriott-East Phoenix/Mesa is the spring training place for the fans of the Cubs. Shuttle buses run to the ball park on game days, still only a few miles from Mill St in Tempe, if you're going to drive, make sure someone is sober..if you're going to make the trek out to the UOP stadium, might as well take in a Brewers game. Why US Airways center?? Chase Field will have its tours. both are located next to each other. Getting a rental car could be a challenge, just because you have a reservation doesn't mean that one will be available when you deplane, might have to bring it to your hotel. If you come, be sure to have a good time and bring your sun screen.

Chase Field is spectacular. I had dinner at the Front Row/TGI Fridays back in 2000 on a non-game day and it was great. I also really enjoyed the area where you could go out and sit in the stands in left field. I attended a game in 2005 at Chase Field and it was great. The roof was open when I attended the game.
Heres a shot I took from a Delta Air Lines Boeing 767-200 on 05 on final approach to PHX.
The "Valley of Sun" is my favorite part of the country. I love the architecture, the weather, the scenery, the opportunity, the amenities, and the culture. When my network marketing business takes off I hope to make the Phoenix Area my home.

Quoting Boston92 (Reply 17): Starwood, Starwood, Starwood. Best bed I have slept on out of any hotels.
Specifically Westins. Love the Heavenly Bed.
As for the Courtyard/Fairfield Inn, I've never had a problem with any of the ones I've stayed in. Great hotels - good price, fine on amenities. Love the free WiFi at Courtyards - makes it easy to do work on the road. I'll be staying in the Courtyard in Marina Del Rey next month when I'm in LA on business next month.

Quoting Tom in NO (Reply 20): Picture from a D-backs game my daughter and I attended last June:
Next season the scoreboard in center will be replaced, with the biggest scoreboard in baseball, if not in all sports. Why they need something that big is beyond me, but its the D-Backs money. Still a nice place to experience a major league game especially when its 110 outside.

Great photo. I will see if I can dig out anything from my visit to BOB/Chase Field.
Other than touring all the sports stadiums, If you like the outdoors you could hike up Squaw Peak (I refuse to call it the new name), South Mountain, Camelback Mountain, and the Dreamy Draw Park. They provide some spectacular scenery and great excersize. I am proud to say I have made it to the summit of Squaw Peak multiple times. Its not easy but its well worth it. The Greater Phoenix Area also has numerous shopping, golf, restaurants, ect. for you to enjoy.
