There are really only 3 hotels in downtown Phoenix, the Wyndam, Hyatt and San Carlos. There are a few other in Midtown and surrounding downtown but if you need to be in the core of downtown, those three are your choices.

I would suggest going to Hotwire.com: Discount airfare, hotel reservations, car rentals, vacation packages and cruises to search for a hotel. It will give you basic information about the area and the amenities...but, I've ALWAYS been pleased with the results and the price.

If you don't need to be in the middle of downtown, check out the Clarendon - just a short hop north. It's locally owned & retro cool. Keep in mind, however, that this is peak season for hotel prices here... spring training, etc.

downtown really isn't an "it" place to be - really it's a small business district with some arts scene - ASU just opened some facilities there, but for the most part it's really quiet on nights & weekends

as such with the amount of lands and amount of resorts (as opposed to traditional city hotels) things get spaced out - you can find more traditional hotels in clusters in the surrounding areas - especially as there are jobs there

what is the reason for coming into town and what are you looking to do? - that would probably help with the hotel search

i've had family stay and the wydham downtown and they said it was really nice and i've had drinks at the compass @ hyatt after a show and it seemed like a decent property

I feel sorry for anybody who comes into town for business and has to stay at a hotel in downtown Phoenix, especially if they're trapped there without a car. Talk about setting up visitors for disappointment! There are so many better places to stay in the metro area, and cheaper too! Are you renting a car, desert sun? If so, and if you still want to be centrally located, there are a bunch of decent hotels/motels in the airport corridor (44th st in PHX, 48th, 52nd st in Tempe for example). From past experience, I've found that Holiday Inn Expresses are usually pretty good, pretty clean, reasonably priced, and offers more bang for the buck. Unfortunately, this time of year the hotel rates are high everywhere in Phoenix.
