My husband and I stayed here the beginning of May on a Friday night. I booked this hotel because it is walking distance to The Fox Theatre. We were in town to see Gregg Allman. We really enjoyed staying here. And everything that has been said about the noise is absolutely true! There is no way anyone could possibly sleep... More

Great atmosphere, great food and cocktails! Lovely decor and amazing breakfast too. Quite vibrant atmosphere in evenings. The staff are friendly and even sent my drivers license back to me in the UK free of charge!

We stayed with friends and celibrated the 5th of may. Which was lots of fun. The hotel is located nicely, parking on the lot or in the public parking for free. The drinks were almost for free, maybe we went during a sponsered evening? During the weekend it can be noisy so don't take a room on the congressstreet side... More

Amazing architecture and history. Brilliant place to stay and explore downtown Tucson. Great happy hour at the bar. It is lively, we had one of the 'quiet rooms' and could just hear the nightclub. However if you are not going too bed too early it's not a problem. If you want a quiet night go somewhere else. Rooms are basic,... More

a very good friend, we'll call her Amy, was celebrating her birthday at the hotel and really encouraged (nagged) us to stay here instead of one of those fancy 'name brand' hotels that have the assurances of a well earned reputation. This is a very old hotel... really old... did I mention it was old? When you walk in the... More

Had dinner here during them gem festival. But I can't get the memory out of my head how I was assaulted by a bouncer a while back. I was staying in the hotel for a week, on the first night I went down to the bar and had only 1 drink, the place was empty and one girl was at... More

Step into the past in downtown Tucson while you dine at the exclusive Congress Cafe in the Historic Hotel Congress. Friendly atmosphere, nice shops in the area and plenty of parking nearby. .The 1919 hotel has 40 basic, individually decorated rooms - they're clean, painted in a variety of mostly pastel colors, and filled with antique iron beds and old-school...

At the heart of Tucson Nightlife, this is a truly unique hotel with a ton of character and one for the adventurous to consider if you understand what comes with it. As locals, we'd always wanted to stay and so the opportunity arose when we planned an AMTRAK trip to NOLA. The train departs at 0615 right across the street... More

We had a wonderful experience and Don Harrison made everything than much better....Thank you Don! Sorry, didn't see or hear any ghosts...maybe next time! We plan to do this again very soon and will try to do a family re-union next year.

The hotel and the hotel room are very charming and a must to stay at when visiting Tucson. The room was loud as advertised on a weekend, but quiet enough to still sleep well. I suggest requesting a quiet room if noise is a concern. The front desk has courteous and friendly staff and is happy to answer any questions.... More
