Flagstaff, AZ is both a destination and an entry to the Grand Canyon, therefore hotels in Flagstaff can book-up quickly during high-tourist season. From boutique hotels to well-known chains, Flagstaff offers comfortable hotel options at a reasonable price. Most of the hotels offer some amenities, which may include a hotel restaurant and bar, a concierge, shuttle services and sometimes a pool and hot tub. But for the most part, Flagstaff doesn't really provide the posh, resort atmosphere unlike its neighboring town, Sedona. If you're looking to make your hotel stay part of your vacation experience, Sedona is located 40 minutes southwest from Flagstaff and has resorts second to none. Take a looks at our Flagstaff hotels by location or activity. We've separated out hotels by some of the most popular reasons for people to visit Flagstaff. Although the town itself is not very big, choosing the right location can make your visit more enjoyable and more convenient, especially during the winter.
Flagstaff Hotels Near NAU
Parents and students alike will find that staying at a hotel near NAU is much more convenient when visiting or moving onto campus. Parking at NAU is notorious and parking tickets are given out like candy. Staying at a hotel near campus will allow you to either walk to campus, take a short shuttle or even ride your bike if that's your thing. Flagstaff is an incredibly bike-friendly city and you can get to downtown, grocery stores and most anything you need by bike if you're staying at a hotel near NAU. This is a great choice for students who arrive early in the semester but have limited access to a vehicle.
Hotels Within Walking Distance of Downtown
Even though Flagstaff, AZ is not very big, it's big enough that staying in a hotel within walking distance of downtown can make your visit more enjoyable if you're planning on spending a good amount of time downtown. During high-traffic weekends (which is more often than not year-round), there are plenty of events and activities that can make parking downtown quite the ordeal. Flagstaff's downtown is vibrant and full of good stuff. There's an impressive amount of good dining, places to have drinks or coffee, interesting shops, and all sorts of entertainment available all within walking distance. Once you're downtown, there's very little reason to have to get in your car unless you're headed out to enjoy the great outdoors, which are really great around Flagstaff. After a day of enjoying downtown and possibly having a couple of drinks, you'll be happy that your hotel is just down the street. If you're from the Phoenix area like many visitors are and you're visiting in the winter, a downtown hotel minimizes the amount of snow driving you'll have to do. Many vehicles that are great for driving the freeways in Phoenix don't always handle the best on snow. Overall, it's a more enjoyable and safer option.
