A wealth of culture and excitement awaits guests of our Phoenix hotels. The capital city of Arizona boasts world-class museums and folk art, grand golf courses and spas, and beautiful desert terrain. Enjoy breathtaking sunsets from the top of Camelback Mountain or from the comfort of your Holiday Inn® hotel. Phoenix won’t disappoint!
Kick off your Phoenix hotel stay with a cultural arts tour of the city. You’ll find Native American arts and crafts at the Heard Museum and both modern and contemporary works from a variety of nations at the Phoenix Art Museum. The Pueblo Grande Museum and Archaeological Park is the U.S.’s only city-operated archaeological site, built on 1,500 year-old Hohokam village ruins. The kids will love “digging in” and learning about the area’s indigenous tribes, and the museum store offers replica pottery, a perfect souvenir of your Phoenix hotel stay! Finish up with a trip to the celebrated Mesa Arts Center, where you’ll enjoy both art and theatre offerings or tickets to the Arizona Opera.
You’ll also want to explore Phoenix’s great outdoors while you’re here. Phoenix Mountain Park is located in the middle of the city and offers panoramic views from Piestewa Peak, while the trails of Camelback Mountain are considered a religious experience by some. The Boulders are some of the most popular and challenging golf courses in the U.S. with rugged hills, dramatic rock formations and frequent bobcat and coyote sightings! Learn about the plant life of the Sonoran Desert at the Botanical Gardens and enjoy up-close-and-personal encounters with tropical fish and sharks at the Sea Life Aquarium.
Of course, this is only a small sampling of what you’ll find in Phoenix; there are endless options for cultural immersion and/or family fun to be had. And with locations throughout the city and nearby Mesa and Scottsdale, our Phoenix hotels can meet every traveler’s needs.
