I thought I would post a new thread since my plans have changed.
So we arrive in Phoenix in January on a Friday, we immediately stay at Holiday Inn at the airport due to the late arrival ( using points) 3320 S. 48th st.
Next day I have a car rental pick up scheduled from Avis at 4469 E.Thomas Road by Arcadia Crossing Sears Auto Center for 2 days @$78
So I found a Taxi rate website and it looks to be around $15 fare from the Holiday Inn to Avis.
Then the following 2 nights we are staying at Homewood Suites 2001 E. Highland Avenue ( again with points)
To return the car on Monday evening and return to the hotel is around $20 taxi fare then
to get to the airport next morning their shuttle can take us up to 5 mile radius and can connect with the Lightrail at Central & Camelback or taxi for $22
This is not the best set up and am looking for suggestions since I can change the hotel so that it is closer to the Light rail metro and perhaps closer to the car rental. ( which I can also try to change)
