Apartment-Style Suites Less Than a Mile From El Paso International Airport
As a tiny border town perched on the banks of the Rio Grande, El Paso has served as a transportation hub for centuries. Beginning in the mid-1500s, Spanish explorers used the Rio Grande as their principal trade route for more than 300 years until Mexico won its independence. In 1881, the arrival of the railroad in El Paso brought with it saloons, brothels, and the occasional outlaw, including Billy the Kid. Today, most travelers arrive and depart by way of the El Paso International Airport (EPL). Located about 1 mile away, Chase Suite Hotel in El Paso offers apartment-style lodging and complimentary shuttle service to and from the airport.
The hotel’s 500-square-foot studio suites feature homey comforts including full kitchens, flat-panel TVs, and custom-designed Sealy beds. In the clubhouse, enjoy complimentary beer, wine, and appetizers Monday–Thursday evenings. Come morning, chefs prepare a breakfast buffet, which typically includes scrambled eggs, sausage patties, and fresh fruit.
Guests are encouraged—though not required—to make reservations for the complimentary airport shuttle, which runs daily, 7 a.m.–11 p.m., from the hotel to EPL. As part of the park-and-fly package, you can leave one vehicle and its favorite blankie in the hotel's onsite lot for up to 14 nights.
El Paso, Texas: Thriving Southwestern Town with Desert Landscape
Situated at the very southwestern tip of Texas, El Paso lies along the Rio Grande River, which forms the border with Mexico. The influence of its neighbor to the south can be seen everywhere in the city from the architecture to the food. Authentic Mexican eateries abound in downtown El Paso, especially on Mesa Street, where you can sample flautas, carnitas burritos, and deshebrada tacos. To trace even earlier influences, pay a visit to the El Paso Museum of Archaeology, where a temporary exhibit showcases hand-woven Maya clothing alongside photographs of Maya people, homes, and villages.
At 24,000 acres, El Paso's Franklin Mountains State Park has the distinction of being the largest US park located entirely within a city. Here, explore the mountainous landscape on 100 miles of multiuse trails, designed for hiking, biking, and all-terrain rollerblading. Nearby, at the University of Texas at El Paso, the Centennial Museum and Gardens supply an up-close look at the Chihuahuan Desert with more than 600 varieties of native plants in the outdoor gardens. Inside the museum, peruse permanent exhibits on geology, native mammals, and regional fossils.
