Info on Mayo Phoenix campus: Lodgings, restaurants, things to do?
Since my doctor recently retired I got my Gastroenterology procedures transferred from Rochester to AZ . Since I've never been to Phoenix/Scottsdale, I'm looking for recommended lodging, resturants and things to do. Thanks in advance,

Hi Dave, Welcome to our home away from home, I had my transplant there in 2018 an a frequent visitor. I live about 70 miles south of the campus but am familiar with the area as I would stay at hotels near the campus when the visits were lengthy. Being Jun when you arrive it will be hot so I would probally make sure your vehicle is serviced before coming. On that note depending on the length of time your here and how far you want to travel for siteseeing your on the almost direct path to northern Arizona like flagstaff, Payson plus the grand canyon is about 2 hours from Phoenix. But for hotels I like 2 hotels about 2 miles from the campus the Marriott on the campus is very expensive and if you have a car the 2 I mentioned are a Holiday Inn and a Cambria Hotel next Door to each other. Don't forget to mention your a Mayo patient as you will get a discount. Very clean both of them and the Holiday inn has free full breakfast but the Cambria is not free but cooked to order. With a large shopping mall only about .5 miles away with lots of restaurants. And even a little strip mall near the hotels. That has places like subway type eateries.
Your are coming tho at a less expensive hotel rate since in the summer our rates drop almost in half. No one comes here in the Summer typically.
So please let me know if I can help further.
@danab Thanks for the response and suggestions. It appears there are 3 Cambria hotels in the area, the one at Fashion Center, Downtown or North Scottsdale; which one are you suggesting, Once again, thanks for the info.
Yes they love to play with city names in that area but I believe it's the Scottsdale one the best way I remember is it's on E. Irma lane and it's mailing address is Phoenix but they call it the Phoenix -North Scottsdale one it's about 2 miles west of the Mayo Hospital Campus if your looking at a map it near the intersection of the 202 and 51 , the other 2 you mentioned are quite a distance from the Hospital at least 20 to 40 miles south
@danab Thanks so much!
