Susan Banner, the proprietress of the delightful Sam Hughes Inn (a bed & breakfast in Tucson, AZ just a few blocks from the University of Arizona), is a willowy figure with the warmest of touches. Her beautiful B&B, which I visited (direct from New York City) 23-27 March 2012, is a cool, quiet respite during the day and a cosy, soothing home in the evening, with a glorious, spacious garden in the back with lounging chairs and plenty of shade trees. My room, facing 7th Street, was a sweetly outfitted single, and my sister and her boyfriend stayed in another room, a double with a huge bed and couch, which faced the garden. Susan also maintained a large, light-filled living room with plenty of books, and a computer room -- with even more books. At breakfast, the dining room provided a sidetable of hot drinks and creal, and Susan made excellent, light egg-veggie dishes. She accommodates special dietary needs/restrictions, encourages enjoyment of the food, and makes this B&B a excellent place for any traveller. I would strongly recommend the Sam Hughes Inn. I found it utterly faultless, and my own mother said she craves the chance, next time her 5 kids come to town, to stay at Susan's B&B and let her offspring stay in the family house instead.
