Unique among downtown Tucson hotels and located just south of downtown Tucson, The Downtown Clifton Hotel offers stylish accommodations and personalized service in historic Armory Park, on the edge of Barrio Viejo. The hotel was built in 1948 along Stone Avenue, formerly US route 80, which linked Douglas to the south and Phoenix to the north. In 2014, the hotel was purchased from its original owners and lovingly restored into The Downtown Clifton Hotel. In 2019, the Clifton was proud to open a 22-room expansion and The Red Light Lounge, featuring local and regional beer, wine and spirits and contemporary Tucson cuisine.

My partner and I stayed at the Downtown Clifton twice in the last month and could not have been happier with our stay. We were visiting family that are high risk for Covid and the Clifton did everything they could to make our visit safe. Marcus and Matt specifically went above and beyond. Also, this place is just so cool! We will for sure be back.

Man, these cats are cool and kind. I spent a night with my partner waiting on a car repair during the coroners and was made to feel safe and cared for. In an unprecedented move, the manager, Matt, accommodated an early check in and late checkout, all the while with an easy, sincere demeanor. Other staff were friendly, the room spacious and comfortable and the open air bar a great respite during the stay. Go support this excellent hip hotel/ motel!

My wife and I stayed for a night with our dog at The Downtown Clifton en route from Sedona to Austin. Marcus was a gracious host and even showed me multiple rooms for me to choose from. We were lucky enough to catch the Friday night barbecue special, but it was hard not to order one of the Sonora Dogs off the menu as well. Our room was clean and comfortable, and the gel pillows on the bed were a very pleasant surprise. Remote controlled air conditioner was awesome. There's sweet hotel merch for sale too. We will absolutely return to The DTC next time we are in Tucson!

We had to go to Tucson for a medical procedure for my husband. The delightful Downtown Clifton helped take the edge off by distracting us from the situation with the wonderful details to discover: old Arizona Highways magazines, 1950's furniture, fun to walk streets to see all the great houses and buildings. We were there during Covid 19 so we didn't socialize on the enticing patio but hopefully will do so when we return in the future. Staff was friendly and helpful.
