Bar Chart: Upcoming 20 Days of Sun City Hotel Rates

Rates shown are nightly rates before taxes and do not necessarily reflect all Sun City, AZ discounts available. The chart reflects the cheapest Sun City hotel for each day and each star rating category.

Sun City is a census-designated space located in Maricopa County. The moderate-sized city is part of a group of sister cities that are popular retirement communities and vacation rental areas for snowbirds.

The city is built on the former site of a western ghost town known as Marinette. When the city opened in 1960, there were only five homes, a golf course, and a recreation center. During the first open weekend, a crowd of more than 10,000 people arrived to check out the new community, which was 10 times the expected turnout.

Developers dreamed of creating a self-contained community to attract senior retirees. The city has its own grocery store, medical facilities, retail and dining centers, and a host of recreational activities. The area is now known as a popular vacation destination for travelers looking to escape the cold of the winter months and enjoy the sunshine and a few rounds of golf on one of the area's eight golf courses.
