Phoenix is the cultural and economic heart of the Southwest, offering guests of our Holiday Inn Express® Phoenix hotels plenty of reasons to get out and explore this fascinating city during their stay. From rich Native American culture and historic neighborhoods to premier golf resorts and ultra-modern sports stadiums, Phoenix doesn't disappoint!
Despite being a largely car-centric city, guests of our downtown Phoenix hotels will find plenty to do and see within walking distance - or a quick light rail commute - of their hotel.
There's an amazing collection of Native American arts and crafts at the Phoenix Art Museum, and Symphony Hall hosts both the Phoenix Symphony and Arizona Opera.
Spend the day wandering around Historic Heritage Square, where you'll find beautiful, ornate turn of the century houses and quaint shops and restaurants. Be sure to check out the Rosson House Museum's collection of Victorian curiosities before heading to the Arizona Science Center for more modern-day exhibits.
Phoenix's arid climate and barren landscape may make it an odd choice for destination travelers, but you'll find the Sonoran Desert is actually one of the area's biggest draws. If you have time during your Phoenix hotel stay, hike the trails at Phoenix Mountain Park or get in a few holes at the Boulders, where rugged terrain, dramatic rock formations and frequent bobcat and coyote sightings are just a few of the challenges in store on these courses. For a truly unique experience, head to the Pueblo Grande Museum and Archaeological Park. Built on the ruins of a Hohokam village, you'll find an amazing collection of Hopi Kachina dolls and Native American pottery.
Another worthwhile venture - checking out Phoenix's celebrated sports venues. The Arizona Cardinals' University of Phoenix Stadium is perhaps the most famous with its retractable roof and rollout field, while Chase Field, home to the Diamondbacks, boasts a swimming pool right off centerfield! You can keep cool while watching the Phoenix Suns dominate the court at U.S. Airways Center, then enjoy downtown nightlife, all before returning to your Phoenix hotel.
With locations throughout the city, there's a Holiday Inn Express Phoenix hotel to suit just about every traveler's needs. So whether you are in town for business or leisure, seeking cultural immersion or just modern conveniences and attractions, we've got your covered.

I choose this hotel each time, due to the friendliness and cleanliness of the hotel. Have never had a bad experiences in my stays here. Comfortable beds in the King suite. Pillows could be a little[More] more firm, but otherwise, no issues.[Less]
We had a business event as well as attendees staying at the hotel. Other than having to deal with 3 different event managers during out planning of the event, it was carried out per our requirements[More] with attentive staff and excellent accommodations. The room was adequate...there were plenty of people to help if needed. The only issue was because of the change in staff and knowing what was originally planned and having to check our contract a couple of times to verify things like having breakfast included with the rooms, etc.
The food was great and I would highly recommend this hotel for events in the future.[Less]
Clean, easy access, great customer service and staff, wonderful meeting rooms, fast quick freshly cooked breakfast[Less]
My husband and I have stayed at this hotel twice while visiting our son who is attending Arizona State University at the downtown campus. We chose it because it is close to our son's apartment and in[More] a safe area where we could walk back and forth. The pro's: the hotel was quiet and clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. We reserved a two room suite so that we would have a little more space. The Con's: the couch in the living area was very small and somewhat uncomfortable. The free breakfast in the "great room" was very basic and not tasty.[Less]
