Area Hotels

Prescott has some of the most charming hotels in the country. The town’s steady flow of tourism year round keeps the hotels busy, but not in such a way that you must act quickly during a peak season to find a decent place to put your head down for the night. Between Prescott College, Prescott Frontier Days, being a prime location for conventions and hosting different events pretty regularly, Prescott hotels provide plenty of rooms to accommodate its guests. Although some of the Prescott hotels offer amenities such as pools, room service, golf and exercise rooms, Prescott is not generally considered a luxury resort destination like its neighboring town, Sedona. Prescott is more known for its authentic, Old West atmosphere and endless outdoor activities. You’ll find hotels in Prescott to fit every style of traveler as it is a town that has something for everyone. Learn More
