Stopped in for a beer at the Tiger's Bar, before heading to dinner in the downtown area. The bartender, Christina, was friendly and waited on us right away....but didn't interact at all unless you were a regular. The history of the building is very interesting.

About
Description
The Hotel Congress, built in 1919, is the cultural landmark that anchors Downtown Tucson. We pride ourselves on the many unique features we offer that youʼd be hard pressed to find anywhere else. Some More cynical city slickers might notice the absence of televisions in our 40 rooms and feel slighted. But itʼs intentional. We strive to maintain the hotelʼs original ambiance from the iron bed to the vintage radio, the rumble of the nearby train to the 1930’s-style phone that connects to a real switchboard at the front desk. And, unlike most historic hotels, all rooms have private bathrooms and air-conditioning. We are an urban, historic, rock ‘n’ roll hotel. Your room may be affected by plaza, nightclub, or street noise. If you would like to stay in one of our quieter rooms, please make arrangements at the time of your reservation. We do not give discounts or refunds due to noise. Earplugs are available at the front desk. Or, better yet, just join in the fun! Less

Our room was nice and cool, no a/c was needed but that was in May, not July or August. Plenty of parking available in nearby garage, a bit of a walk, but not uncomfortable. Creative juggling I would recommend!

Yes, there is AC in the rooms. As for parking, there's an underground lot across the street. You get a ticket at the gate, take it back to the front desk and they'll validate it. There's also very limited street parking... More
