Spring Hill Suites, Grand Junction

Here, Colorado shows itself from a different side, like in the form of the Colorado National Monument. The deep canyons and red rock pillars are unique to Colorado. The centre of Grand Junction invites you to stroll and discover the local gastronomy scene and wines. We recommend the newly renovated Spring Hill Suites (by Marriott) for an overnight stay. This hotel can be found in the historic downtown area and hence, within walking distance of many fine restaurants.
