I was treated warmly from check in until check out. Having moved to Tucson only a few weeks ago and having no family in town, I decided to start a new Christmas Tradition, part of which included staying in the Hotel Congress. The hotel has the feel of being old, dark carpeting and wall paper and no tvs in the rooms, but they do have an old classic radio to listen to. They aren't kidding about the hotel being "loud" My room was on the Congress Street side and you do hear traffic until late, in addition to other guests walking the halls and the occasional freight train. Have no fear though, earplugs are part of the room amenities! So if you are a light sleeper, it is in your best interest to obtain a cactus garden room. As in most historic hotels, this was centrally located in downtown so near a public transportation hub, a good amount of decent restaurants and coffee shops. I enjoyed myself thoroughly and will be back!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Hotel Congress is listed on the National Historic Hotel Registry. We pride ourselves on the many unique features we offer that you'd be hard-pressed to find elsewhere. This historic Tucson hotel transports you back in time. Some cynical city-slicker types might notice the absence of a television in any of our 40 rooms and feel slighted. But it's intentional - we strive to maintain the Hotel's original ambiance - from the iron bed to the vintage radio, from the comforting rumble of the nearby iron horse to the retro-style phone that actually connects to a switchboard at the front desk. All rooms are uniquely designed offering an original experience every time and unlike most historic hotels, all rooms have private bathrooms, free high speed internet, and a private guest lounge.The lounge offers our patrons a large-screen television with unlimited channels as well as free computer access. You can also enjoy the exclusive outdoor patio, where you can soak-up the Tucson sunshine year round. We have new upgrades for our guests, to ensure an amazing experience during your stay at Hotel Congress. *Bike Program - We now have bicycles that our guests are able to check out to explore Tucson during their stay! We recommended guests to bike the Santa Cruz River Trail, and the Train Trail behind Maynards Market and Kitchen.

Every room has a tray filled with a variety of snacks that are available to purchase.
