We've stayed here before when visiting Tucson. Most everything is great. It's really convenient having a separate bedroom with the bathroom connecting both to the living room and bedroom. The sofa bed is not the most comfortable although we realize it's challenging to find a comfortable sofa bed. The tiny kitchen has a refrigerator and microwave and sink, but no plates, utensils, so you will need to bring or find your own. The breakfast buffet is good. The location right on the river walk and bikeway is wonderful. That makes for great morning or evening walks. Being in the upscale shopping plaza is also great for browsing, and don't miss the farmer's market on Sunday mornings. The store that sells only olive oil and balsamic vinegar is very special, great customer service and tasting. Be sure to request room facing pool area to avoid road noise from Campbell Ave. We did find that the electronic key system is a bit problematic, often had to swipe key several times to get it to open hotel and room doors. Also, don't forget to carry key because you need it to get between buildings and lobby/breakfast area.
