... the neatest thing I'm adding to my backpack is a little portable and super light clothesline complete with it's own case. It was an Easter and Buen Camino gift from a great friend I've known since 1974 back in the Virginia and James Madison college days. I would have never thought of that and I know that it is going to come in real handy (although I'm hoping not very often.)
Well, that's it for now.
Buen Camino mis amigos! (hope that's right Curtis) ...
... and get to know better” first-time visit. Not 5 minutes into our visit, a couple of friends of Laura's mom, Carol and Michael, who hadn’t seen Laura in about 4 years, happened to show up in the same bagel store where we were...a bagel store Laura had never previously patronized. After introductions and the usual “What if he’s an axe murderer?” comments given the unusual-to-most context of our ...
... the fire and went to bed. Monday morning, we started our drive into Arizona. We decided to visit Antelope Canyon instead of the Grand Canyon. Antelope Canyon was amazing! Unfortunately, the road to Flagstaff had recently been destroyed by a landslide and we had to take quite a detour. Around 7 pm we made it to Prescott and Julie took us out to dinner at the oldest restaurant in Arizona! We are driving to Vegas in a few hours and can't wait!
... surrounding Prescott offers an endless number of adventures in any mode you can imagine: hiking, technical rock-climbing, backcountry skiing, kayaking, mountain biking, canoeing, cross-country skiing, etc. etc. etc. Kevin's excitement was palpable and completely understandable as he took us out for a scramble at the Granite Dells, his favorite park -- 10 minutes from his house, with a swimmable lake surrounded by enormous hikable, scramble-able fingers of rock. We all had a ...
Our next destination was some of the highlights of Sedona. As we entered Sedona from south, we were treated to views of Bell Rock, which is one of the purported "vortex sites". We opted not to do the full 7 mile circuit around the base of the rock formation - but instead hiked a little way up the trail and took some photos.
From there we decided to stop at the Holy Chapel ...

Historical Traveler Reviews SpringHill Suites Prescott
This is the second time we have stayed at the Springhill Suites and this was better than the first. They have a new addition of suites with two rooms and it was great. Living room had fireplace; nice bedroom and great bathroom with whirlpool tub and walk-in shower. Continental breakfast was more than filling. The only down side of our stay at all was one desk clerk was not as friendly or helpful as I would have expected; and after arriving home, we found we might have left our camera lens cap in the room. I placed a call to the hotel and after giving my name and phone number to the desk clerk; I am still waiting to hear back (3 days later). Guess I should stop waiting for him to call. That would be my only complaint with out entire stay. Would definitely recommend this hotel. We certainly will stay there again.
Nice place for business trip
The only downside was that I could only stay one night. The suite is large and the pillows and bedding were very nice. Room was very quiet. Fridge and microwave in the room. Breakfast is included and was a nice selection. Best feature is a computer in the lobby that was free to use to check email and to check in for a flight. All in all a very nice place to stay.
Great family friendly accomodations
My husband and I traveled to Prescott with our one and 2 1/2 y/o. The room was very nice with a seperate living space. The main reason we stayed at this location was the fridge and microwave availability. The bed was so comfortable I would like to have taken it home. There is an Albertson's within walking distance which was really nice for snacks and milk. Rooms clean, quiet. We enjoyed ourselves so much we decided to stay an extra night! Would definitely stay at the SpringHill again.
Nice hotel-good location
The previous reviewer's comment on the distance to the Courthouse is incorrect. My young child and I walked there from the hotel, and there were no hills (go west on Sheldon, then south on Cortez)- just 3 short blocks with many historical buildings and antique stores to window shop along the way. We also tried to get into Murphy's, but there was a 45 minute wait. Next time, we'll make a reservation. The new patio area at the hotel has a fire pit, fountain, and bbq- very cozy. Our 3rd floor room had an excellent view of Thumb Butte. We will be back!
This hotel was quiet,comfortable, and located within walking distance of downtown Prescott. The hotel staff was helpful in suggesting a great restaurant (Murphy's). My kids enjoyed the swimming pool. The best feature of the hotel was the free breakfast which included make-your-own waffles, eggs, sausage, fruit, cereal, muffins, bagels and beverages.
Home Away from Home
We are building a second home at Talking Rock in Prescott and stayed at the Springhill Suites in October and will again between Christmas and New Year's. We were given the handicapped room due to our reservation error and it was very comfortable. A small cleanliness issue in the shower was quickly remedied. The desk staff was very friendly and helpful. Even though they were at the end of a major addition we were never inconvenienced by the construction. We are looking forward to staying there and walking to Murphy's for dinner.
We stayed a total of 8 nights
We went Prescott to enjoy the Thanksgiving Holiday. We found the Springhill Suites to be wonderful! The front desk people were great, especially Patti. The free breakfasts were fresh with tons of variety. We used the heated pool and hot tub and had a good time. Location was nice, because we walked to fine restaraunts and shopping. Rooms were updated, clean and quiet. I am hopeful that they will get the new beds that the nicer Marriott's are using; even though the beds were okay, I like the comfort tops that you find in the larger hotels. We will stay at this hotel every time we go to Prescott.
Nice family hotel
We just spent 3 nights at the Springhill Suites and were happy with our stay. The rooms are clean and large, plenty of room for our family of 5. But, be advised that the hotel is undergoing a remodel/addition and it can be quite noisy and "constuctiony." The breakfast was great, make your own waffles, omlettes, bagels, donuts, cereal, juices, etc. Our kids loved it, and the lobby/eating area was nice with a large fireplace. We personally liked the fact that an Albertson's was close, made it convenient to get water, medicine for our child who got sick, and snacks for the kids. We would definately stay there again.
Location not downtown, it's in a strip mall many blocks away
The thing that I was most disappointed in is the hotel's location. They said they were "downtown". I thought that meant they were close to the courthouse plaza where all the fun arts and crafts shows, music and restaurants are. They are really in a strip mall with Albertsons, Walgreens and Staples. I was expecting a great location since they say it is in historic downtown. When we got there they said all the neat stuff was within walking distance...but it was quite a distance and we had to go back and drive because I couldn't walk the 6 or 7 blocks uphill. The hotel itself was nice like every Marriott is, but I felt I was mislead about where it was. A strip mall at Albertsons Grocery Store wasn't what I had in mind when visiting a place like Prescott!
ARE YOU SERIOUS?
Off season rate was far too expensive,keep shopping there much nicer properties in the area at more competitive prices.
