If you're looking to book a hotel in Flagstaff, choosing the right location can make your visit more enjoyable and convenient. Some of the considerations when selecting a Flagstaff hotel are safe parking; walking distance from your hotel to downtown Flagstaff or NAU; complimentary meals; and hotel amenities. Flagstaff is busy year-round and the good hotels often get sold out on popular weekends and snow days. If you're visiting Northern Arizona University, you'll want to stay at a hotel that is close to campus or offers a free shuttle service to NAU. If you're here to ski or ride at Arizona Snowbowl, perhaps a cabin with a fireplace, a cozy bed and breakfast or vacation rental will be best for the occasion. Best yet, Flagstaff has some of the coolest summer festivities. Check out downtown hotels if you're just here to enjoy a little mountain town weekend escape.
Flagstaff hotels range from boutique to well-known chains offering comfortable accommodation options at a reasonable price. Most hotels and motels offer some amenities, which may include a hotel restaurant and bar, a concierge, shuttle services, exercise facility and sometimes a pool and hot tub. But most people come to Flagstaff to be outside and enjoy nature. So choose a hotel that fits your needs, but don't dwell on it. Flagstaff and everything else surrounding your hotel choice will be so much more exciting.

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.See Downtown Flagstaff Hotels »
