Grand Highland Hotel & Holiday Courtyard

By Breeanya Hinkel

Like a Phoenix rising out of the ashes, the Grand Highland Hotel & Holiday Courtyard have overcome destruction to become a prominent downtown boutique hotel and wedding venue.  The Whiskey Row fire of 2012 destroyed a historic downtown building, but the courtyard was able to rise and bring a new sense of life to the space.

The Grand Highland Hotel is owned by the Hinson family and has been in the family since 1949. After the 2012 fire the family remodeled the hotel and added the Holiday Courtyard next door, naming it after the family owned, Holiday Shop, which once located on the first floor of the hotel.

The motto of the Holiday Courtyard is: “We do your day, your way.”  They believe no two weddings should ever feel the same.  Your big day should also be your very best day.  With only one wedding onsite per day, and access to The Grand Highland Hotel, located steps away, your party will enjoy personalized experiences, exquisite details and lasting impressions, creating an unforgettable wedding experience at the Holiday Courtyard.

The Grand Highland Hotel & Holiday Courtyard offer a variety of packages that can include use of the courtyard as well as hotel to suit your needs and make your event stress free.  You can rent the courtyard all year long and enjoy Prescott’s four seasons.  During the colorful winter months, a couple can enjoy their first dance under a 25’ x 80’ clear-topped tent while taking in the beautiful courthouse holiday lights.

Rental of the Courtyard includes:

  • casual, outdoor tables and chairs
  • bars and pub tables
  • outdoor heaters
  • sound system & stage for either streaming music or a live band
  • support staff
  • 10’ x 20’ canopies

Make your wedding a memorable, stress free day.  Contact Grand Highland Hotel & Holiday Courtyard for more information at (928) 224-2746 or visit
