For U of A related activities and events you can't beat this location. Not having to deal with parking on campus and being able to walk to sporting events or the student union is a big plus. The hotel itself though is mediocre. While the decor comes off hip and trendy the bones of this hotel is planted squarely in... More

Entire staff was very nice and professional. Rooms small,but clean and great view of the U of A. Easy in and out underground parking, for keeping the car cool The bar was great as well after a long day. Would stay there again in a heartbeat.

We were doing a college visit to the University of Arizona and chose the Aloft to stay overnight. It was a great hotel: clean, comfortable beds, and unique. We were a family of four and got a great rate for two rooms, we would return for sure. We liked the unique concept; modern, hip. Staff were great and very helpful... More

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.

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.
