We made our way through the south end of Grand Canyon National Park this morning. The weather was cool but sunny which made it really nice for walking around and enjoying the views. The drive from the park to Flagstaff was covered with snow. After we checked into our place, we went to historic downtown and enjoyed dinner at Flagstaff Brewery.
Well we woke up to a pretty cool view this morning in Monument Valley! Slightly scary staying in a house on a hill in between two mountains, but so amazing to look at. We set off early to go for a drive around the 17 mile loop road which goes around some of the more well known of the monuments in the valley. Next we made our way to Grand Canyon …
Guten Morgen, Mr. Jetlag! 2:30 Uhr das erste Mal auf den Wecker geschaut, um 3:15 Uhr ist endgültig nicht mehr an Schlaf zu denken. Aber zum Schlafen sind wir ja auch nicht nach Amerika geflogen! Also Krempel packen und die herrlich kühle Morgenluft von Tempe genießen. Um 6 Uhr sitzen wir bei Denny's und genehmigen uns erstmal ein Power-Frühstück …
Heute Morgen schlage ich erstmal dem Jetlag ein Schnippchen. Um 3 Uhr nachts tue ich so, als sei ich bereits wach, gehe eine Stunde später wieder ins Bett und schlafe bis 6:15 Uhr. Eat this, sucker! Conny schläft sogar gleich elf Stunden durch. Kurz nach 7 Uhr sichern wir uns den letzten freien Tisch im Frühstücksraum. Gar nicht schlecht die …
A Grand (Canyon) Day!
Today was the first day we stayed off the bikes and spent the day resting, and sightseeing. Late yesterday, as mentioned, we made arrangements through "Heaven's Gate Tours" to visit the Grand Canyon for an all-day visit. The tour company was highly rated on the website tripadvisor.com.
At the time we made the …

Historical Traveler Reviews Sonesta ES Suites Flagstaff
Stayed two nights in 'suite w/ full kitchen'. Rooms were very clean. Accomodations were well above average with nice bed(s) and plentiful towels, etc. Kitchen was well appointed with decent oven/stove, micro... all utensils and pots/pans - we cooked in and enjoyed a filet mignon meal for pennies that would of cost $$$ eating out.
If you are planning to visit Flagstaff, you should definitely stay at the Residence Inn by Marriott. I just spent 3 wonderful nights there, and I could not be happier!
Very Pet Friendly!
Spent the weekend at Residence Inn, the staff was very professional, courteous. There is a decent size park area next to the hotel that is also very dog friendly. The breakfast buffet was above average, the grounds were well kept, and the hotel is far enough from the train tracks that the noise is not an issue.
Wonderful, friendly and clean
Great stay. The rooms were so big - not at all your typical hotel room. We got two rooms from Priceline that both totalled less than one night booking on Marriotts own web site. So check it out! Also, the breakfast was hot and good. Highly recommend this hotel.
A great hotel!
My wife and I stayed 2 nights at this Residence Inn while in town for a wedding. The accomodations were clean and cozy. The staff treated us like gold and we had a wonderful experience. There was a small birds nest outside out door (apartment style accomodations) and this really added to my feeling of home.
Best deal in the city
Great price. Huge continental breakfast every morning. Full kitchen. Makes a longer stay wonderful because you don't have to eat out all the time. Short drive to the old downtown area and other attractions. Easy in and out. No problems whatsoever. Would definitely stay there again. Plus, it's pretty much away from Train noise! Small workout room with TV. Pool and spa, though we didn't use it due to lots of unexpected SNOW!
We stayed at the Residence Inn in late March this year (2005). It was our first base in our trip from UK to Arizona / California. We had booked on the internet and as we stayed for 6 nights got a very good deal. The accommodation was superb for the family (2 adults and 3 children 14,11,9) We had a two bed suite. Each bedroom had a king size bed, plenty of storage space, great bathroom and large TV. The living room had an open fire and a good size comfy sofa bed. There was a good size kitchen area with all you would need (incl dishwasher). There was a laundry on site and a super hot, hot tub, which after a day of skiing in the local snowbowl was a really welcome treat. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and there was a hearty breakfast served with a smile and a supper on Mon - Thurs with beer and wine. They had free use of a computer with printer linked to high speed internet. Flagstaff can be noisy if you are near the railway. This was a little distance away so you could still hear the trains but you soon get used to it!! We would really recommend this as a base for seeing some of Arizona's great sites .
Overpriced, if you don't ask for a view.
i've stayed at this place to many times to count. lots of room. kitchen is top notch. breakfast is worth it, you can even pour your own waffle/ mix into the griddle from premade cup. the pool doesnt seem to be heated in summer as much as it used to be. big minus if you like warm pools. vending machines have been taken out, big minus if you want late nite snack. you will like this place tho, as long as you dont mind the highest rates in flagstaff. expect to pay 150 standard or 200 for a 2bed2bath.
We also offer a complimentary weekday grocery shopping service if you submit your list to the Front Desk by 9am.
Thank you again, we hope to see you soon at the Residence Inn by Marriott in Flagstaff!
Although I stayed here last year I must say that this is one of the better Residence Inns - clean and well maintained with good facilities. I enjoyed that it is a few miles away from the downtown area with easy access to the major routes to Petrified Forest and Grand Canyon National Parks. It is about a mile away from a shopping mall and movie theater which can be good on a rainy day (although it doesn't rain too often in Arizona).
I always stay here!
I have stayed at this hotel several times. Everyone is very friendly, and the rooms are large and clean. Happy hour (5:30-7:30, beer, wine, soda, snacks) is excellent, and the breakfast is very good as well. Definitely worth your money.
