Way out in the middle of a vast, sparsely populated area of Arizona, a canteen of water is highly appreciated. But the Hampton Inn goes a lot farther. It has great rooms, appealing decor, and ample comfort. The food is good, too, at a restaurant inside the hotel, open till nine or ten at night. Monument Valley is close by and very significant in terms of both Navajo and American history, culture, and religion. There are other hotels, too, but this one is hard to beat from several points of view.
