Prescott Hotels

Stroll through quaint old-fashioned streets with historic saloons and aging stores, discover the thrill of the rodeo at dedicated sand-covered grounds, and tease Lady Luck with a game of cards in popular casinos on the edge of town. Prescott, Arizona, is a fun entertainments town, a mini-Vegas in the heart of the arid Phoenix landscape where the charm of the Wild West meets modern day gambling dens and glitzy bars in a clash of neon-bright signs.

Things to see

A stroll down historic Whiskey Row in the heart of Prescott is like stepping back in time to the age of saloons, cattle rustlers, and dancing girls. Each of the buildings along this street perfectly reflects the style and construction techniques of the late 1800s. It earned its name for the high volume of saloons and drinking dens crammed into one area, a presence they still maintain today. From drinking to gambling at Bucky’s Casino, a glamorous high-roller high-stakes entertainments hall where packed out blackjack tables are crammed into noisy halls, and you strain to hear the dealer over the metallic tumbling and tinny music of flashing slot machines. In the Prescott Gateway Mall, a covered, air-conditioned shopping gallery home to big name department stores and trendy fashion outlets, there’s more than shopping on the menu. Follow your nose to the food hall where the aroma of strong coffee competes with the sizzle of spicy bowls of chili and bubbling pizza tops.

Where to stay

Surrounded by the encroaching forest of the Prescott National Park, the town of Prescott is a sprawling maze of residential estates, where timber-framed homes are edged by dry yards and sun-scorched grass, and pretty high street stores on North Cortez Street. Brick-built arcades sit alongside ancient banks with ornate, pillared facades, while pretty single-storey shop-fronts are shielded from the blazing sun by bright green canopies. Hotels in Prescott line the main routes, enjoying plenty of space in the wide parking lots they share with supermarkets and hardware shops.

How to get to Prescott

For travelers arriving by plane, the closest arrivals terminal from overseas is the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport in downtown Phoenix. It’s an hour and a half or so by road or bus, but the route is easy to follow up Interstate 17. While you’re in the pretty town of Prescott having your own hire car is a definite plus. The pretty banks of Willow Creek Reservoir and Watson Lake are lovely for a stroll, as are the woodland trails in the Prescott National Forest, but you need to get there first.
