Hotel occupancy rates improved by two percent in June 2020 after five weeks of steady increases since the state reopened. To get tourism back on its feet, the Arizona Office of Tourism initiated a Rediscover Arizona campaign, aimed at residents who are ready to return to Arizona’s open spaces and destinations. 

Resorts and hotels throughout Phoenix and Scottsdale are offering massive rate cuts and discounts for Arizona residents opting to keep their summer vacations within state lines this year. Here are some of the deals.
