This is an elegant Marriott property--the lobby is beautifully decorated with water features, rooms are spacious and well-appointed, and there are nice amenities on property (concierge lounge, bar/restaurant, gift shop, fitness/pool). The staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel is located directly adjacent to University of Arizona, so there are plenty of eating and drinking options close by. For all... More

We stayed here for a volleyball tournament. It is right next to the university. The first night we didn't even know about the University Boulevard, which borders the hotel. It has many cool restaurants and shops and plenty of outdoor seating. I would definitely stay here again.

From the moment we were greeted at check-in, the staff at this hotel treated us like royalty. Overall, we found our room clean, comfortable, and quiet. The room window curtains were visibly dusty, and the lounge breakfast food was bare minimum. Even so, we look forward to our next stay at this extremely friendly, well-located hotel.

Just had a day to spend in Tucson and this hotel was the perfect location. Right next to the university along with plenty of restaurants.

Was booked for us the company we were visiting at a "special" rate of 89+++, yeh it's the +++ that pushes up the price and pushes this hotel out of it's league of being good value.

Thank you for filling out a review of the Tucson Marriott. The hotel is located next door to the University of Arizona where all parking is at a premium.

Well, I saw service go downhill when I stayed here a year ago and it continues. This was probably the worst check-in experience I've had at a Marriott in years... no mention of the MR platinum status and I had to ask for details about parking, about the concierge lounge, about what the 3rd key they gave me was for,...

My room was spacious and the view was nice. It is really easy to get around in the city. The Valet was slow but friendly. The concierge lounge needed more food choices and the fridge was never stocked fully. Their was a musty smell near the elevators on both floors. As a platinum member, I expect to be upgraded but...

Great stay at a hotel next to the University of Arizona. Rooms were spacious. Had a great view of the mountains and downtown. Staff very helpful. Outdoor pool was lovely but a little small. Jacuzzi next to it. Good buffet breakfast. Nice bar. Scenic indoor lobby. Good sundries shop. If I have to come back, I will certainly stay here.

We have stayed at the Marriott University Park several times. Located next to the University of Arizona campus, which is VERY convenient! Walking distance to the campus, to many restaurants and bars. Good service, clean, restaurant and bar on site. Will return while our son is a student at U of A.

The hotel needs an update, but you can't beat the location. The heart of the U of A school shopping and restaurants are right outside the front door.
