Valley Metro Light Rail Hotels - Maps

Hotel Palomar in Downtown Phoenix

 Judy Hedding

The following pages include maps of the various segments of light rail stations for the Valley Metro Light Rail and where you can find a hotel within walking distance of those stations.The "M" symbol represents the location of a Light Rail Station. A station symbol with a red circle around it indicates that it is a Park-and-Ride location.

An Interactive Map of Light Rail Stations

  • You can use this interactive Google Map to see all 37 stations and nearby hotels.
  • You can use this other interactive Google Map to see nearby attractions and points of interest.

In the left pane of the map you can:

1. Check or uncheck any of the three categories listed there. If you only want to see light rail stations with Park 'n' Rides, just uncheck the regular stations and the hotels. Just want to see all the stations without the hotels? Just leave the two station items checked and uncheck Hotels Near Light Rail Stations.

2. If you want to see all the names of the stations, or the Park 'n' Ride stations, or the hotels, simply click on the down arrow to see the list. If you click on one of those items, you will be directed to that point on the map. In some cases, I have included notes or GPS coordinates of those locations.

Hotels Near Light Rail Stations

This map is designed for those people who are coming to the Phoenix area and want to find a hotel within walking distance of a light rail station. In this way, people arriving at the airport could take the connecting shuttle to the light rail station, and use light rail to get to their hotel.

People who are visiting and intend to stay at one of these hotels during their stay are most likely to be able to handle all their transportation on light rail if they will be going to:

Phoenix Convention Center (conventions, trade shows)
CityScape (downtown entertainment and dining district)
Chase Field ( Arizona Diamondbacks baseball)
Talking Stick Resort Arena, formerly known as US Airways Center ( Phoenix Suns and Phoenix Mercury basketball, Arizona Rattlers Arena Football, concerts)
Symphony Hall ( Phoenix Symphony)
Comerica Theatre ( theatre, concerts)
Orpheum Theatre ( theatre, concerts)
Tempe Beach Park / Tempe Town Lake (concerts, festivals, water recreation)
ASU ( university, museum, theatre, stadium)
Mesa Arts Center ( theatre, concerts)

The Phoenix, Tempe and Mesa hotels I have included here are within half a mile of a Light Rail station. These are usually rated at least average in quality. Cheaper hotels can be found, but remember—if the price seems too good to be true you might not want to stay there. In general, you will find that smaller hotels on East or West Van Buren, near ASU and near the airport might be less than desirable. That's not true of all, of course, but true of many. In those neighborhoods, I'd stick to the known brands of hotels.

Also, if you are willing to walk farther than half a mile from your hotel to Light Rail you'll have more options. In this case, please remember that between May and September walking a mile back and forth from a light rail station to your hotel can be very unpleasant due to high temperatures. A one-mile walk in 110°F can easily result in heat-related illness

If you will be leaving the immediate area of METRO Light Rail during your visit, a taxi might be the best bet if you are just going somewhere once or twice, like Scottsdale or Glendale. Keep in mind that it is rare here that you are able to just stand on a city street and hail a cab. This isn't Times Square! It is more likely that you'll have to arrange for a cab or ride share service in advance. If you'll be doing some traveling around the Greater Phoenix area, renting a car is advisable.
