We have a contract to fill a minimum number of room nights, so we encourage you to stay at the Phoenix Mesa Marriott. However, we also acknowledge that some of you may wish to stay at a less expensive lodging or even bring an RV or camp out. Please contact the Convention and Visitor's Bureau at 800-283-6372 for information regarding these options. They don't appear to have a website. Trip Advisor (Mesa AZ) is a good resource though, with user reviews of hotels, restaurants and attractions.
