PHX - Is Any Terminal More Convenient Than Others for Picking Up Car Rental?

Hi:

I am arriving into PHX late tomorrow night, staying at an airport hotel for the night. On Friday morning, I will take the airport shuttle back to PHX where I will transfer to a bus to the Rental Car Facility (I'm renting from Hertz). Since I can get dropped of at any terminal by the hotel shuttle, is there any difference in which terminal I use for the transfer? For example, is one closer and would have less stops to Hertz than another?

Thanks!

Terminal 2 is nearest the rental car center, and, iirc, there is no stop between the terminal and the rental car center.

It looks like the pickup would be on the other side of the parking lot across from Terminal 2? I should remember; I’ve flown UA into T2 and gotten rental cars a few times...

That's what it looks like, but when I flew AS into terminal 2 last month, I simply walked across the first lane to the rental car pickup.

The hotel shuttle driver agreed with you and dropped me off at Terminal 2 where the rental car bus was sitting and we went directly to the center without delay. An added benefit is that Terminal 2 is much smaller than Terminals 3 and 4 so the bus wasn't that crowded.
