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.

We stayed because the A/C in our motorhome was not working. The room was spotless and the bathroom was great.[Less]

We came for a wedding. The plane was late and we went straight to the rehearsal dinner. When I called to say we may be late the person I spoke with was very accommodating! We made check in before 11[More] though and he was so nice! The whole hotel was clean and on the way to the room we saw the gym equipment (Looked awesome!) and the cupboard and laundry facility which also looked amazing! Our room was so comfortable. My husband usually has issues with hotel beds and pillows and he slept so well here! Overall the only little complaint was the lighting in the bathroom for make~up... it was a little on the dark side, but I managed. I will defiantly look for a Candlewood Suites in the future when ever we need a room![Less]
