Prescott area Information

For those attending the Prescott Meet, following are some hotel and activity suggestions for people wishing to spend the weekend in Prescott.


There are historic hotels on or near the Prescott Courthouse Plaza.  The two best known historic ones are the Hotel St. Michael on Gurley Street and the Hassayampa Inn, on East Gurley Street.  A newer hotel near the plaza is the Hilton Garden Inn on Montezuma Street.  The Hilton backs up to the steel trestle over Granite Creek built by the Santa Fe, Prescott and Phoenix Railway.  The Hilton has created a railroad themed rear area and opened the trestle to pedestrians.

Sites to See

Downtown Prescott is known for Whiskey Row on Montezuma Street.  However, among the historic bars are antique stores and art galleries.  West of downtown Prescott is the Sharlot Hall Museum on West Gurley.  Numerous historic buildings are located on the museum grounds together with many pioneer artifacts on display.


Prescott is know for hundreds of miles of trails in the area, especially in the Prescott National Forest south of downtown.  The most well-known trail is the Peavine Trail northeast of downtown.  The trail follows the roadbed of the Santa Fe, Prescott and Phoenix Railway when the route was built into Prescott in the late 1890’s and abandoned by the A.T&S.F. in the 1980’s.  The most scenic portion of the trail begins at the south trailhead off Prescott Lakes Parkway.  The trail skirts the east side of Watson Lake and heads into the spectacular Granite Dells.  Original culverts and short bridges from the railroad construction are common along the trail, plus an historic marker at Point of Rocks.  There is a cost of $3 to park at the south trailhead.
