I love Hotel Congress. Tucson holds a special place in my heart as a U of A alumni. Whenever I return to visit, I stay at the centrally located Hotel Congress. Not only is it a rad little historic landmark, it also has some of the best club nights the town has to offer, located conveniently on the bottom floor... More

I stayed here on two separate nights within the same week. Both were weeknights. I experienced no noise at all. Didn't even need earplugs, and I am a light sleeper. I called ahead and was placed in the "quieter" section of the Cactus rooms. I enjoyed my stay and will return. I have not stayed in a Fri/Sat night ----... More

Stayed here with my gf and friends. The rooms were clean, very comfortable and the staff was fabulous. We loved Arizona in whole but had a really fun time staying here in downtown tucson. Our stay at Hotel Congress was a beautiful addition to our amazing trip in AZ.

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Congress a couple of years ago because we wanted to be near the 4th Ave Street Fair. Not only were we within walking distance to the fair, but we thoroughly enjoyed the Congress. It is a funky and quaint hotel, with great music both in their stage area and also outside on the...

The hotel has mega cool factor and great people watching. The rooms were interesting. Just because a hotel is old doesn't mean it has to have old beds. The beds were terrible! My back was killing me when I woke up. The shower head hit me in the chest cuz it was made for a little person but the room... More

This hotel my look a little run-down for American standards, however, it exudes charm and history. It is a fun and inexpensive way to spend the night. The rooms may seem basic, however, suit the nature of the hotel. I highly recommend -- it is an experience!

As a touring musician it is always a real treat to return to the Hotel Congress. The rooms, staff, and live room are all excellent. Simply, I love the place. Despite the legends, I have never had a supernatural encounter there. Or anywhere. (Probably because there is no such thing as ghosts...)

This review is for the bar in the lobby and not the hotel itself. For those not familiar with Tucson, the Hotel Congress is one of the truly historic buildings in Downtown Tucson. The place just oozes charm. The bar in the lobby is a perfect place to meet friends before dinner with it's comfortable leather couches and chairs. The... More

The hotel is old and historic but has not been properly taken care of. It does a good job of taking you back in time unfortunately that includes uncomfortable small beds, strange smells and outdated everything. Go visit the hotel, stay somewhere else.

I stayed at the Hotel Congress so I could attend a concert at the venue across the street. The room was tiny, but adequate for my needs. I settled the bill upon checkout the next day.

Dear Guest, We are looking into this matter. The Hotel Congress does not duplicate charges, nor do we "double dip" on guests credit cards. Please reach out to us directly so we can take care of this issue. Best, Julie Brown Hotel Rooms Manager Hotel Congress More
