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...

Thank you for filling out a survey on the Tucson University Park Marriott. The hotel is scheduled for a renovation in 2017. We are cleaning all the carpets on the elevator landings this week which should correct the issue you mentioned. Thank you for your feedback as it provides us the opportunity to improve our service.

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. We had a double room and were surprised that the beds were standard, not even queen size. The room is big enough to hold two king size beds - they need to... More

Hotel staff was very friendly. We were upgraded to the Elite floor for free breakfast & cocktails. The breakfast was basic but adequate. Our room was spacious and clean. We enjoyed the view of the mountains & University from our balcony.

From the time I drove in to use valet to the front desk greeting they were all fantastic. I had a package that was shipped to their facility for business and they notified me at check in that it had arrived. The next day breakfast was excellent. The hotel itself can be a bit noisy based on the internal design... More

Very friendly and helpful valet even though we didn't actually valet, good check in. Rooms still had feather pillows even though we'd specified on booking and double checked at reception on check in. Handled well though when we complained. Large spacious room, small balcony, no corridor noise and we were close to elevator so was a little nervous. Very close... More

I had my GF come out and visit me during the 4th of July weekend while I'm conducting business in Tucson. I split the nights between here, to enjoy the downtown area, and JW Marriott Star Pass in the mountains, for a nice getaway. The staff is always courteous, friendly and accommodating. The room was comfortable, as usual since I've... More
