Please use the discounted booking link to make your reservation. If you plan to stay at the Courtyard Marriott both before and after your trip, you’ll have to make two separate reservations. The booking rate was arranged by our sister company, Grand Canyon Whitewater, so you will see references to them on the webpage.

If you choose to stay at an alternative hotel, please note that we are not able to pick up or drop off at locations other than the designated hotel. Please make the necessary arrangements to arrive before the 6:00 a.m. departure.

Once you’ve made your reservation we ask that you update the lodging field on your online registration form.

Airport Transportation

Many people who fly into Phoenix choose to use Groome Transportation from Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX) to Flagstaff and Grand Canyon. You can request (in advance only) to be dropped off at the Courtyard Marriott for a small additional fee. If you are flying into Flagstaff (FLG) you’ll need to catch an Uber/Lyft or taxi to the Courtyard Marriott.

Alternate options include renting a vehicle, using Airport Shuttle of Phoenix which services any Arizona location, charter shuttles with Flagstaff Limousine in Northern Arizona, and FlixBus between Phoenix and Flagstaff.


Regardless of where you stay in Flagstaff, you may park your vehicle at the Courtyard Marriott while on your river trip. Be sure to inform the front desk and park where they advise. We recommend that you do not store luggage or valuables in your vehicle. Neither Arizona River Runners nor Courtyard Marriott will be responsible for damage to, or loss of, the vehicle, its contents, or luggage stored at the Courtyard Marriott while on your trip.

Luggage Storage

Courtyard Marriott will store any non-river luggage at no charge for all Arizona River Runners guests. All bags must have name tags and should be brought to the front desk before breakfast.


A complimentary breakfast will be available for every river passenger on the morning of your trip launch. After breakfast, please meet in the lobby near the check-in area by 6:00 a.m. It is important that you are river-ready so that we can leave promptly. You will travel 2.5 hours to meet your guides and boats at the launch point, Lees Ferry.
