Amtrak to Union Station AZ from Chicago

HI all! We will be taking this trip in May 2012 and my questions are: what is a good hotel close the to Amtrak station since we will get in after 9pm on a Saturday night, and also - where is the closest rental car place by the station and are they open on Sunday? And we LOVE Amtrak sleeper cars! Thanks!

As I understand your heading, you are going from Chicago to Arizona.

Usually you are better off posting hotel/rental car questions in the destination forum, in your case the Arizona forum and/or the specific city.

I'm sorry mackie but AZ is a state, not an Amtrak Station designation. Are you looking for a hotel in Chicago or in a city in Arizona? Hertz has the national contract with Amtrak , they might be the rental car agency to look at. Most rental car agencies close before 9 pm. You might have to pick up your car the next morning. Can you give a bit more specific info.?

Upper roomettes are better unless you would have a problem with the stairs. The lower level is convenient for handicapped and overflow.

You're other question is best asked on the Flagstaff forum. Have a fun trip.

Shallow is correct that you probably will get all of your needed information on the Flagstaff Forum. We stopped in Flagstaff last May (coming from LA) for three days. We used organized tours so we didn't rent a car. We stayed at the Weatherford Hotel which was within walking distance from the Amtrak station. It was a nicely restored old hotel with a pretty decent restaurant. However it had two bars with live music, which made sleeping on weekends difficult so I would not recommend. They have some very helpful destination experts on the Flagstaff Forum who will be able to answer your questions.
