I have stayed at the Marriott twice in the last couple of years for upwards of 10 days. As most reviews say the hotel is tired. The rooms are not bad and as someone who spends most of the visit in one I would rate the size as the best feature. They are roomy. The other great aspect is its... More

This hotel is perfectly located for any trip to Tucson - nice and central! I was impressed by the lobby when we arrived and we even got a free room upgrade! The rooms were nice, nothing fancy. The decor is a little dated, but it is "desert" decor so I guess it is fitting. You can walk to plenty of... More

Front desk staff is poorly trained. Terrible check-in and check-out was no different. Worst thing, NO Manager on Duty and it was only 6pm. This Marriott is managed by Atrium Hospitality group and not directly by Marriott Intl. This might be the reason why service is so bad! Plenty of other hotels in the area with nicer facilities and much... More

The reason I stayed at the Tucson Marriott University Park was the proximity to campus. It is only 1 block away. As far as Marriotts go, the hotel itself is very run down. I do not think it has been remodeled in the 20 years since it has been opened. The food at the restaurant is decent for a quick... More

I know it is my fault for coming back to this hotel - but is the closest Marriott property to my 96 year old friend so convenience wins out BUT there is no way this qualifies as a Marriott brand property and barely could be a old Courtyard. Common areas are old and dated as are the rooms. Front desk... More

The hotel is nice... Well maintained, open atrium lobby with water feature, clean, etc. everything you expect at a Marriott. Location is good - lots of local and chain restaurants right there in the neighborhood steps from the door. It is also right on the streetcar line that goes to downtown. We used it to go to a race downtown... More

The hotel has a great location near shops, restaurants and the university. It is easy to walk to many things. The staff was friendly and efficient. The rooms were very clean. The hotel restaurant and bar could be better and never seemed very busy. I would certainly recommend this hotel.

I've stayed here for a week each year for six years. I think this was my last! The nicest part of this hotel is the Concierge Lounge. Great attendants and food offerings. The rooms are TIRED and are in need of a makeover. Housekeeping is mediocre at best. Hallways dirty. Carpeting in room not vacuumed during my stay. And, housekeeping... More

When booking my work trip I was a bit shocked that this hotel on a university campus in Tucson was one of the most expensive I've been quoted.

The Tucson Marriott University Park is a perfectly acceptable business hotel adjacent to the University of Arizona campus and sitting next to a major restaurant and entertainment district.
