Phoenix enjoys about 300 days of sunshine a year, which has helped it to balloon into the sixth-largest city by population in the United States. It’s also 1 of only 12 US cities with at least four major sports teams: the Arizona Cardinals (NFL), the Phoenix Suns (NBA), the Arizona Diamondbacks (MLB), and the Phoenix Coyotes (NHL). Hotel Tempe/Phoenix Airport InnSuites Hotel is located just 20 minutes from bustling downtown Phoenix and just 7 miles from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. A free shuttle runs between Sky Harbor Airport and the hotel from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
The hotel sits just across the street from Arizona Mills outlet mall—1.25 million square feet of shops and restaurants, including Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th, Nike Factory Store, and an IMAX theater. Amenities abound back at the hotel, including a heated outdoor pool, a hot tub, and a fitness center. Fire up the gas barbecue and enjoy a home-cooked meal on the patio, or give unsolicited tips to others playing basketball on the court. After spending the night in an executive suite or king studio, you’ll be treated to a complimentary hot breakfast at PJ’s Cafe, which also hosts a free evening social hour with wine and draft beer.
Phoenix: Bustling Metropolis and Native American Culture Surrounded by Desert
Though the topography of the Phoenix area is all desert, it’s by no means desolate. Camelback Mountain is a designated city park area with scenic trails that wind past boulders and red-sandstone formations; climb to the very top for a view of the entire city. Or hit the themed trails at the Desert Botanical Garden filled with southwestern flora such as huge Sonoran cacti and other moisture-hoarding succulents. Either way, plan hikes in the early morning or twilight hours to catch the most stunning sunlit views and stay cool.
For an in-depth look at the cultures of Arizona’s indigenous population, browse the 12 exhibition galleries and sculpture garden at the Heard Museum.The collection’s nearly 40,000 pieces of art range from 500 Hopi katsina dolls to a full-size Pueblo oven. In nearby Scottsdale, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin West was the renowned prairie-style architect’s winter home as well as a campus for his architecture school.
