51st Annual CBHL 2019 Meeting: Transportation




The Phoenix metropolitan area is served by Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX) and is about 10 minutes from Tempe Mission Palms, the conference hotel.

For guests of Tempe Mission Palms, a courtesy shuttle to and from Sky Harbor Airport is available daily on the hour and half hour from 5:30 am - 10:00 pm (see shuttle and driving instructions below and also on the Hotel tab).


Considering a rental car and staying at Tempe Mission Palms? The local Tempe Enterprise Rental Car will drop a vehicle off at the hotel allowing you to avoid the time consuming inconvenience that is the Phoenix Airport Rental Car Center. You can also leave the rental car at the hotel when you're done and take the hotel shuttle to the airport for free. To take advantage of this service, call the hotel desk at (480) 894-1400 and ask to speak with Otto, Tom or Martha about reserving an Enterprise rental. Rates start at $42.99 per day for a compact car and goes up $5.00 for any upgrades (one day rental is 24 hours).
