The Grand Canyon State, full of open spaces and grand vistas, Arizona pulls visitors in and forces them to look at the extensive painting that is nature. When looking for great rooms in Arizona hotels, visitors should keep this in mind and look for the spaces between the cities. Yet the cities are centers of culture and vibrant human life as well. From the nature of the Grand Canyon and the Colossal Caves to the bright lights and busy streets of Phoenix, tourists in Arizona have their work cut out for them trying to see everything in one trip.
The various regions of Arizona range in climate from desert to high mountain regions. In winter, a visitor can drive from downtown Phoenix, with its sunshine and warm weather to Flagstaff where he can ski down the slopes on snow that is just perfect for sports. The center of Tucson and Phoenix are havens for culture, museums and fun. A visitor to Tucson shouldn't miss the Intimate Illusion Show, returning close-up parlor magic to local audiences. Phoenix has the world-class Museum of Musical Instruments and the Desert Botanical garden. A visitor can also find his way out to the desert to visit the Saguaro National Park. In all of these cities, and out in the desert and mountain regions, Arizona hotels are waiting to warm the heart of the explorer. Guests can stay at luxury resort hotels in Arizona like the Arizona Biltmore Hotel and Spa and be pampered in the desert atmosphere in Phoenix. Or they may find more happiness in a smaller, budget hotel in Flagstaff like the pet-friendly Hotel Aspen Inn Suites, within walking distance of the historic town center. Whatever the budget or the amenities needed, one of the hotels in Arizona is sure to fit.
