This is the 2nd time my husband and I have stayed here. Everything that is said is true....it is loud as all get out and is run by a bunch of hipster kids...and I love it! :-) The history is cool, the rooms are neat (if you aren't staying in them for too long, which you shouldn't as there are...

Has a great look of historical hotel look from outside, but once you are in, the entire place reminds you more of a hostel then hotel. Location is very convenient and food served at its first floor restaurant is excellent, but the entire hotel definitely on a more rough-end. I did not spend the night here(but rather just visited the... More

If you like Holiday Inn-style hotels, the Hotel Congress is not for you. As a historic hotel, the rooms and beds are small but have lots of characters. We were only able to stay one night but hope to return to explore more of the downtown area of Tucson. The hotel staff were all wonderful and since we were prepared... More

Thank you for staying with us and paying us the compliment that we are not a Holiday Inn style hotel. We take great pains in not being a cookie cutter hotel. I'm sorry the bar was packed when you came down. Sometimes 50 people can walk into the hotel at any time creating peaks of business. There are normally at... More

It was fun staying there on our way back from Texas. Definitely loud, but after a while it all just kinda blends in. I actually liked the small rooms and bathroom which all vibrated as we were staying over the stage downstairs. The breakfast was amazing, especially the baked eggs which are a must!!!

I booked a room for my husband and I over Christmas just because the hotel looked different from anything we've stayed in before. It was. As soon as you walk in, you're transported back to the Wild West. You have the desk, with real keys, the dining rooms, the saloon and a bar. You get your room key and haul... More

A very well run privately owned hotel. We were warned of ground floor nightclub noise and offered earplugs (not necessary). The room was very clean, the beds and linens excellent quality, and the fixtures and furnishings vintage. A library with a pretty little courtyard was on our (2nd) floor. The Cup Cafe offers an excellent breakfast. Everywhere we looked were... More

Very small room, sketchy water in shower. Now that that's behind us ... great hotel! The staff was as friendly as can be, from the front desk to the bartenders. Before booking I read reviews and knew to ask for one of the "quieter" rooms away from the live music. We weren't bothered at all by the noise, but were... More

Now I didn't actually stay here, but was told by many it's a must visit. This place dated back to "around" 1919 and has been remodeled keeping much of the original style. You feel like you went back in time. Very friendly staff, two bars, three if you count the Sunday brunch "make your own Bloody Mary" which is very... More
