Reviewed February 16, 2009

My friend and I made our annual trip to Tuscon for the Gem and mineral show and we stayed for three nights at the Catalina Inn. This is our fourth time staying at the Inn and we again received top-notch treatment. The room was impeccable, the food tremendous and the inn keepers are super nice. We will never stay somewhere else!

We just returned from our fourth trip to Tucson to attend the Annual Gem & Mineral Show. We were lucky to find the Catalina Park Inn on our first trip there. We have stayed at that B&B every trip since then. The home was built in 1924, and the owners have left the exquisite wood and tile work in place. There are six beautifully decorated bedrooms, all with private bath. There are several garden "rooms" with benches and comfortable chairs for relaxing during the day. A gourmet breakfast is served in the dining room each morning, and every year we see some of the same people that also have been staying there for several years. The owners are so hospitable, that you really feel like you are back visiting friends. My husband goes to Tucson for the Gem Show, but I go to stay at the Catalina Park Inn.

For many years we have stayed at Catalina Park Inn and it is one of the reasons we love Tucson. Every time we come we are greeted like friends by Paul and Mark and we settle in to a day or a week of pure comfort. Our room is always lovely with period furnishings, a wonderful bed, great TV and a huge bathroom and it is spotlessly clean and well equipped.

The breakfasts are incredible and vary every day from perfectly cooked waffles, pancakes, eggs benedit, mexican eggs and fresh fruit, juice and breakfast breads. The plates are beautifully presented and the conversation around the table is stimulating and fun. We feel very lucky to be able to come back year after year and to know such great innkeepers.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Catalina Park Inn while visiting family in Tucson. We're in Tucson a lot, so I'm sure we'll stay there again. Paul and Mark are easygoing, fun, and accomplished hosts. They are as helpful as guests need them to be, but don't hover over guests (which we appreciate). Both the common rooms and the guest rooms are beautiful, tasteful, and comfortable. The breakfasts are delicious and filling.

We have been going to the Catalina Park B&B in Tucson for years either just after Christmas or in Feb./March for spring training games. Mark & Paul are wonderful hosts, and we consider them friends. The breakfast is delicious and hearty. Coffee & tea 24/7. The gardens are a pleasure. Walking distance to several outstanding museums around the U. of AZ. This is our "other home" in Tucson. Highly recommended.

When traveling, my wife and I dodge commercial hotels whenever possible and have been lucky enough to be delighted with all the unique homes, condos and B & B’s we’ve visited. However, since our trip last week, there will be a new benchmark from which all future trips will be measured. The Catalina Park Inn is a stunning 1920’s mansion in one of the historical districts of Tucson. The restoration of the mansion is flawless, the interior design is beautifully eclectic and the grounds pass for a miniature Sonoran desert botanical garden.

The physical package is pure elegance, but this is not where charms of the Catalina Park Inn lay. The Innkeepers Mark and Paul embody everything hospitality. Each morning you will be dazzled with delectable and stunning breakfasts and expect cookies and mellow music when you return. These hosts are all about the details. The essence of this place is not, however, what Paul and Mark do; it is who they are. These two men truly make you feel like a guest in their home; a thing only others give lip service. So when you find yourself engrossed in discussions of politics, laughing about some stylistic quirkiness of a pop singer and completely forgetting why your even in Tucson; then you know that you're hanging out with new friends at the Catalina Park Inn.

Paul and Mark have created an oasis of elegance and serenity within a 2-minute walk of UofA's pulsing activity hub. A circuit of Catalina Park across the street is a lovely morning wake-up walk, and the Inn's aesthetics are truly outstanding. Their website description is for real; it's every bit as wonderful as that! But most striking is the innkeepers' art of unobtrusively pampering their guests. Coffee is ready early in the am, ice available upon request; my room was tidied to perfection each day, somehow always without inconveniencing me despite my erratic schedule. Breakfasts are delicious, and your hosts are the best. Anyone fortunate enough to come upon this place and find a room available will be glad they did!
