We stayed here for a night on our way to Palm Springs. Hotel is very nice, clean, with a nice onsite bar and truly in a perfectly location in comparison to the university. Only complaint is there is a hospital and your on the main drag so any room facing the streets all you hear is sirens roaring all night.... More

Stayed for 2 nights, last minute change of plans (you know how that goes). I had my doubts when booking this hotel, but apparently I had no reason to. The hotel is well located, walking distance from food chains. easy access to main roads. Good night sleep, good wifi.

The service at this hotel was excellent. The room was a nice size and the bed was very comfortable. The property includes free parking and WiFi. There's a snack bar in the lobby and a bar and pool table. Nice pool but a bit small. Close to the freeway and not far from Park Place Mall. Great for a day... More

Love that the decor is modern. Area is a typical college town. Room was clean. There are more than enough wall power outlets for all of our devices (2 laptops, 2 iPads, 2 cell phones, 2 apple watches), Wifi connection in the room is fast enough and bed is so comfy!!!

I apologize for the difficulty you encountered during your recent stay. You can certainly use the service elevator and I will speak with the Talent members working that day.

I stayed 4 nights in this hotel back in late September 2015 and completely forgot to write a review. Based on my memory of the hotel and pictures that I took; this hotel is a bit different both interior and room wise. As this was my first stay in a Aloft property; I was surprised by the mixture of contemporary... More

We have stayed at Aloft Tucson several times due to its close proximity to the University of Arizona. This time, we stayed one night during college orientation. Our hotel room was clean and quiet with the usual Aloft amenities. The lobby was attended by friendly university students and was very casual. Our only complaint was that the lobby/lounge bar was...

This hotel was shockingly bad. As they were linked to W hotels I thought it would be nice. Could not have been more wrong.

This is an average hotel but has a great location to UA campus and you can't beat the price point. We have stayed here many times while visiting the UA campus. Unfortunately we have not always had the cleanliest rooms. Housekeeping seems to negligent the movable wall to the bathroom. I'm always tidying it up with cleaning wipes. This time... More
