I would recommend this hotel for location and great service, yes there are a few minor things they could be updated ... but I was very happy staying here. I was advised at time of booking I was booking a "Club" room and told of the loud noise from the club below until 2am, they did not lie about that (they did supply ear plug that can be found in the bathroom). It is a Historic hotel so you don't get all the fancy stuff like at the Hilton or Marriott, which didn't bother me. If you staying there to watch TV or relex ... THIS IS NOT YOUR HOTEL! I was there to catch at show at the Rialto Theatre, right across the street. It totally met my needs. Yes, the bath room could use a new sink ... but the room was clean and I was surprised how comfortable the bed was, and plenty of pillows. Maybe down the road they could update the carpet, it is showing its wear but adds to the character of the place. This may not be hotel for everyone, but I do recommend giving it try ... JUST AVOID THE "CLUB" ROOMS IF POSSIBLE!
- 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!
