Book Your Wedding with Grand Highland Hotel


About Us

Located on Whiskey Row in Prescott, Arizona,, the Grand Highland Hotel is a lovely downtown space for a vintage-style wedding with a modern twist. Whiskey Row was built in the early 1900s when Prescott was a gold rush and mining town. At one time, the street had more than 40 saloons. The brick-and-mortar structure was built in 1903 and now functions as a boutique hotel with individually decorated rooms. The Grand Highland Hotel's courtyard is available for wedding ceremonies and receptions. Couples can also opt to rent out the entire hotel and have private access to the entire building and grounds.

The Grand Highland Hotel encourages couples to use the Holiday Courtyard as a blank canvas where they can let their creativity fly. The Grand Highland hotel staff will work with couples and their wedding planner to tailor the wedding to the couple's specific needs. The brick-paved courtyard is strung with market lights and can seat up to 200 guests comfortably. Couples can exchange vows underneath the wooden band shell and then repurpose the space to house the band after the reception begins. A photographic mural takes up part of one of the courtyard walls, showing historic Whiskey Row as it had been back in the days of the Old West. Guests can dance the night away on the patio dance floor beneath the open sky.
