We will arrive in Phoenix around 18.00, via interstate 10, and following one nights stay, propose to travel to Sedona and the Grand Canyon via interstate 17 the following morning. This trip is booked for the start of May 14. Could you please advise where would be the best place to stay for one night, in a nice mid range hotel, to facilitate these routes. We would prefer if the hotel is close to restaurants and something to see or do. It would be nice if we stayed in a safe place were we could get a flavour of Phoenix, although only a taste with the time that we have.
Thank you in advance for any recommendation.
