The extensive southwestern suburbs of Phoenix are mostly residential, with patches of arable land beginning to appear around the boundaries of adjacent Tolleson and Avondale. Three major routes across this section of the city are US 60 (Grand Avenue) from Peoria and Sun City, I-17 from the north and I-10 from the west; chain hotels are located along these latter two, with the main group beside I-10 exit 139 (51st Avenue), at the edge of an extensive business/industrial district to the south. Other notable sites in the vicinity include Grand Canyon University, Desert West Sports Complex, Maryvale Golf Course Desert Sky Mall and Ak-Chin Pavilion.
The Phoenix West Holiday Inn hotel sits at the northwest corner of the junction of I-10 with 51st Avenue (exit 139), easily visible from the interstate. As well as Phoenix, the hotel is close to the neighboring districts of Tolleson, Fowler & Maryvale, and within a few miles of many businesses, sports and shopping centers. Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport is 12 miles to the east. Holiday Inn Phoenix West is an older building but fine for a short stay; it has 144 rooms on 4 floors, an outdoor pool, extensive meeting facilities (nearly 10,000 sq ft of event space) and an on site restaurant (Pit Stop Bar and Grill).
