Can’t decide on your next outdoor getaway? Let us be your matchmaker – Chandler, Arizona, is the one. Close to the Sonoran Desert, it’s home to 100-plus acres (40ha) of wetlands and desert habitats, making it an oasis for nature lovers. But city slickers flock here, too; downtown Chandler has an active cultural scene. For a true match made in heaven, pair a visit with a stay at one of the best hotels in Chandler.

1. Cambria Hotel Phoenix Chandler – Fashion Center, for a blissed-out booking

Hotels in Chandler aren’t too far from Phoenix, Tempe, and Mesa – arguably the better-known cities in Arizona – but why would you stray when you have a good thing going? This hotel knows how to keep you faithful, with interior design oozing spa serenity with clean, curved lines and an earthy color palette of soft blues, creams, and browns. Float around in the heated pool for the full-on Zen experience.

2. Homewood Suites by Hilton Phoenix Chandler Fashion Center, for a home away from home

Weekday evening socials will make mingling easy, but if you’re feeling introverted, whip up your favorite dish in the kitchen in your homey mellow-yellow suite. This extended-stay property offers much to make your vacation happy, including a large kidney-shaped outdoor pool framed by lofty palms and a hot tub, a fitness center, and a basketball court. Enjoy a sundowner by the outdoor firepit cozied up in a comfy chair.

3. Marriott Phoenix Chandler, for tequila tasting

If you want to set your out-of-office message and get away from the glow of a screen, we suggest booking a mountain-view room for a different kind of glow. Desert sunrises and sunsets in Chandler are epic, and this Marriott gives you a front-row seat. Large, light-filled rooms will relax you almost as much as the outdoor pool and the stone-clad fireplace. As this is Arizona, you must visit Proof 19 for a choice of more than 30 varieties of tequila.

4. Hampton Inn and Suites Phoenix Chandler-Fashion Center AZ, for a shopping heaven

Fashionistas will love this hotel’s proximity to the Chandler Fashion Center, where you can shop until you drop at more than 180 stores. Take the free shuttle to the mall or anywhere else within 5mi (8km) of the hotel. Then, you can justify whatever you spend with the knowledge that hot breakfast here is on the house. Rooms with warm red feature walls should help you sleep well so that you can take a dip in the sparkling blue pool outside.

5. Staybridge Suites Phoenix – Chandler, for an escape from reality

Another extended-stay property on our list of the best hotels in Chandler is Staybridge Suites. The spacious rooms will help you settle in with kitchens for cooking up family favorites. But we’re betting your visit won’t feel ordinary, thanks to the hotel’s proximity to popular attractions, such as the Chandler Museum, Crayola Experience Chandler, Desert Breeze Railroad, escape rooms, local parks, and more. After a dizzying day sightseeing, you can all jump in the outdoor pool to cool off.

6. Hilton Phoenix Chandler, for tasty brews

If you’re a craft-beer lover visiting Chandler on a time crunch, book a stay at the Hilton Phoenix Chandler, where you can taste local brews. Modern lounge R Bar serves local suds by SanTan, including its exclusive Vault Series (named after the historic Valley National Bank Building, where SanTan now brews). You can even enjoy live music Monday through Wednesday without ever setting foot off the property. Resort-style additions include an outdoor pool within ordering distance of a bar and plenty of spaces to relax.

7. Hyatt Place Phoenix/Chandler-Fashion Center, for feasting in style

If you ask us, 24/7 dining sounds like a challenge, but we’re up to the task at this relaxed, resort-style hotel, 2mi (3km) from Desert Breeze Park. In the morning, enjoy a delicious spread, including fresh fruit, yogurt, and bacon, then nosh throughout the day at the Placery on favorites such as chicken caesar salads and turkey pesto sandwiches. Finish the day off strong with an old-fashioned or G&T. If the munchies strike in the early hours, hit the Market for grab-and-go goodies. However, it’s likely you’ll sleep through the night in your serene room with plenty of space.

8. Crowne Plaza Hotels & Resorts Phoenix - Chandler, for an indulgent hole in one

If golf’s your sport, then this Crowne Plaza is your game master. Next to the 18-hole championship San Marcos Golf Course, this lavish property sets you up for a day on the green. If you’re into a different kind of tee, you can grab a cuppa at one of the three on-site restaurants; we suggest taking it on the outside patio, where you can sit beneath the string lights and palm trees and listen to the trickling fountain. Neutral rooms with lots of natural light and comfortable armchairs should rest the most stressed-out guest.
