Experience Luxury at the Affordable Hotel San Carlos-Downtown Convention Center

Vacation in Downtown Phoenix

Hotel San Carlos offers budget-friendly accommodations. Enjoy easy access to dining, government buildings, and Symphony Hall. Take a horse-drawn carriage around the neighborhood.

Discover Phoenix and Its Charms

Savor the tastes of Bonjour, the hotel's Vietnamese restaurant. Afterward, swim in the rooftop pool. Move beyond the property to play at Troon North Golf Club.

Historic, Affordable Rooms

Sleep well on a SertaT mattress at this hotel. While the Sheraton Phoenix Downtown Hotel also has a heated pool, it lacks the historic flavor of Hotel San Carlos.

Expert Reviews
Michelin Guide
A yellow-brick downtown classic since 1928, the San Carlos is an historic anomaly in a region of spa resorts and golf haciendas.
Lonely Planet
A historic property in the heart of downtown Phoenix, this 1928 gem sports smallish but clean rooms, friendly staff and lots of old-school charm.
Rough Guide
To appreciate this historic very central 1920s hotel, you have to be the kind of traveller who positively prefers an old fashioned, frazzled and often noisy downtown hotel.
