Hotels - Lost Dutchman Marathon

This page is not yet updated for our 2018 event.  If you are booking early, make sure you mention that you are participating in the Lost Dutchman Marathon and request special pricing.

IMPORTANT! Hotel rooms are subject to availability at time of booking and all rates are subject to change. FEBRUARY IS "PEAK TOURIST SEASON" IN ARIZONA--PLEASE BOOK EARLY TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT. Some hotels provide a Lost Dutchman Marathon discount (be sure to inquire). Also be sure to ask for any AAA or AARP discounts at time of booking. Distances and drive times are based on information provided by MapQuest. Always allow extra time when driving, taking into account traffic conditions, time of travel or any possible road construction. All hotels are located within close proximity to Hwy. 60, a modern freeway that will connect you quickly and conveniently to the race venues. Public transportation is at a minimum in the area--it is advised that you secure a rental car for the entire time you will be visiting. Most major rental car companies have locations at Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix.
