    Any suggestions for hotel/resort in Phoenix?

    My wife and I are going to come down from Prescott to escape the cold weather for a couple of days and ride our faces off. Anyone have suggestions for a good hotel/resort (hot tub and/or pool are a must) for under $100? We're going to be riding all over, so location is not a big deal.

    Thanks!

    send an email to [email protected]. we have a local hookup with a hotel at the base of SOMO with a hot tub/pool and free happy hour. one of the best/closest hotels to the trails!

    Just avoid the Tents at Chateau Arpaio. It's only $40 a day, but no hot tub (thankfully).

    Funny, cstem. Luckily I will be going with my wife, so it is highly likely that I will avoid arpaio's tents.

    I'm really interested in this hotel, latedropbob.

    So, SOMO is really the epicenter of MTB'ing in Phoenix. I'm excited to see the trails!

    Basically, I'm itching to pull the trigger on a hotel so I can have it all lined up. Which hotel is it?

    Edit: Too late. I pulled the trigger on priceline. Got a sheraton just northeast of SOMO for $70 (airport style hotel). Nothing special, but atleast it has a heated pool and hot tub. Booyah.

    BTW, beware of the lodging and other taxes, they usually don't include them in the advertised rate, and they are pretty serious in Phoenix. I was shopping for a room for next weekend.

    No doubt. Thankfully this deal was $70 total, with taxes. Not bad for a regularly-priced $160 hotel. However, there is NOTHING nearby the Tempe Sheraton at the Airport (or whatever.. blah-blah). Looks like a nice heated pool and hot-tub, in addition to an outdoor fire place. I'll be bringing my own whiskey and beer, TYVM.

    Now, we wait to introduce the Prescott yocal SS hardtail riders, such as ourselves, to SOMO. It'll be in the 70's, so I'll even if we do get lost riding CHUNK.

    You are just down the street from Boulders on Broadway which is a good place for a post-ride beer or 3. They have an indoor bike storage area which is always nice.

    Alright, I know this has been asked a million times on this forum, but: Can anyone recommend a few super-flowy loops for hardtail, SS riders from Prescott? Please include the TH that you start from. I want to hit the classics, but I'm not exactly sure which direction to do them.
