The room and hotel was nice enough but definitely nowhere near what it was hyped up to be. I love Tucson or I would be quite a bit more annoyed. For the price of the room, I will certainly stay somewhere else next time. My main complaint is the extra $50 hold that they place on your credit card WITHOUT... More

Cody S I apologize for the inconvenience that you have experienced during your recent stay. The $50 incidental authorization is not a charge, but rather just a hold in case you have any charges posted to your room. You should have been informed. Our desk agents let every guest know why they are taking the authorization. Again, I apologize if... More

This place was very nice and at a great rate. Has the industrial/loft theme going on and it's a really good look. Has a nice little bar by the lobby with a great big lounge with a pool table. Barringer and the front desk person were extremely nice and helpful. The rooms are clean and modern. You definitely won't regret... More

The Aloft provided a modern, cool and trendy atmosphere in central Tucson. This a few steps down from a W, but the concept is there. I agree that the rooms on the back are probably more peaceful since the hotel is right on Speedway which is a major boulevard. Overall, I enjoyed my 3 night stay.

Rjmonares I just wanted to take a minute and thank you for such a positive review on your recent stay at the Aloft Tucson University. There are definitely many elements of the Aloft that are similiar to a W. It's really an outstanding brand and in a perfect place. Thank you again for taking the time to recognize your stay.... More

Aloft was one of the meet hotels contracted by USA Swimming.

Previous reviews: on-target. Both elevators had to be fixed during my 2 nite visit. Avoid the Speedway-side: noisy! Backside rooms: much quieter. Felt very safe as a female traveling alone. Friendly, helpful college students at front desk. Quick breakfast food available--great for early campus events. Loud, young, vibe in lobby area with pool tables, bar. Located just at the edge...

If you are looking for another type of business hotel, this is it. Funky lobby, friendly staff and comfortable rooms. Great location near the University of Arizona and eating and drinking places. Worth the stay.

After a disappointing stay at another hotel in Tucson, we decided to check out the Aloft Tucson University. Having never stay at an Aloft Hotel before, we didn't know what to expect but were just thrilled with our stay. I checked it out on line to see what the rates were and was quoted $139 per night on a discount... More

This was a nice hotel. It is very modern but also kind of like the 70's. In walking distance to main gate and 4th ave. However, it was fairly noisy at night. I would suggest either bringing a relaxing sound scape to listen to or keep the air down far enough so that it continuously runs to drown out the... More

This hotel has several advantages if you are planning to visit the University of Arizona at Tucson - it is close to the University and has free parking. Rooms are relatively large and quiet. However, there were no drawers in our room (very weird design) and the shower leaked/sprayed to cover the floor with water every time we used it.... More

Checked into this funky (in a good way) hotel at an all purpose reception desk which also served as the order point for meals. The hotel is central to the University of Arizona and appeared to support a convoy of parents seeing their children off to their University tour. The bar is also central to "reception" and was always busy.... More
