Stayed at the Camelback Courtyard on Business. Overall, the hotel is very nice. Very clean and nice lobby, with breakfast (not free) in the morning - and free coffee to go. Pool, simple workout room. It's just down the road from the Camelback mountain, a mountain that really does look like a camel lying down. Pretty scenic as you have a clear view of it down the road.
The actual rooms are fairly simple. I attached some pictures. There's a desk, a place to hang your clothes, a small couch with a table. Nothing overly exciting - pretty standard. But it's all very clean.
Some rooms have balconies, other's don't. The staff is friendly and attentive.
It has free Internet - wired in the rooms, wireless in the lobby. There's a small snack area in the lobby. There are ice machines on each floor, but no drink machines.
The best thing about the hotel is that it's very near a mall (walking distance) with shops and restaurants, a bookstore, a Chili's, etc. And it's within about 2 miles of a trendy mall-like area with upscale eateries and department stores. Just a block or so down the road is a new AMC movie theatre with an upscale fish restaurant (McCormick's and Schmick's).
The rooms are quiet with easy access. There is covered mall parking (free) next door to keep your car out of the hot sun.
I would recommend it as a nice place to stay in Tucson on business or for short vacations.
Related: Traffic in Phoenix is terrible. It's not that there's congestion, but that there are many, many traffic lights on all of the streets and avenues - and they are not in synch. You literally miss every single light. A drive of 5 miles takes 20 minutes. Be prepared for a slow traversal of the city.
