Myself and my roommates are going to Arizona for Spring Break in March. We are looking for a decent hotel near downtown but we know nothing about the area and where the best places to stay are?

We are planning on visiting the Cubs spring training location, US Airways Center, Chase Field, University of Phoenix Stadium, ASU's campus, and we are going ATV'ing north of the metro area.

Where would be a good place to stay....and what hotels?

What do you want to spend?

Try www.hotels.com , www.expedia.com , www.travelocity.com and the like. Also www.priceline.com

The earlier the better as AZ is a Spring Break destination.

You can't go wrong with the Courtyards/Fairfield Inns/ etc by Marriott in that area. I've been to almost everyone of them in the valley and they are always very clean and comfy, and reasonably priced.

I stayed at the Airport Hilton for about 2 months (work). The hotel itself is fine, the staff is great, but some of my co-workers were bit by bed bugs, so be careful.

There are so many hotels in the valley it's hard to recommend just one. Why don't you post some places you are considering and maybe us Phoenicians can help you along.

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.

I've stayed in both and they are very nice places.

There is a Springhill Suites in Tempe that is about 5 min from the airport. It is close to the 202 freeway and about 7 min (walking time) to Mill Ave (where the nightlife and ASU girls are) in Tempe.

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.

Damn, those are some expensive Hotels.

The spring hill looked nice but it was over a grand for 5 nights. We are college kids. We cant afford that. I hope we can find something around Tempe or Scottsdale for cheap.

I will add the hotel I stayed at is literally down the road from Tempe in Phoenix. On University I believe.

Sorry about that. I wasn't sure if you were going to splurge or look for something economical. My brother lives in Scottsdale now - I'll ask him for a few ideas.

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.

Chi-Town, I know this is not downtown but I always stay at the Hilton Squaw Peak Resort which is 9 miles to the North of downtown. I usually pay $89 a night. Here is a link to the hotel: http://www1.hilton.com/en_US/hi/hote...=128410959,QWRM1QO304UKMCSGBJC222Q

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.

Hilton Garden Inn Phoenix Airport on University Ave

My manager stays there when he is in PHX-it's pretty average- like a Marriott Courtyard.

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.

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.
