Tucson is a treasure trove of nice hotels, most very pricey and suited for the Country Club crowd and "Snow Birds" escaping the chill of winter. We decided to try something different, and found this nice boutique hotel nestled away from the resorts and crowds. June is part of the "off-season", and the room rates at this time are wonderful, starting at $99. We opted for a "Fireside" room for an additional $10, not needing a fireplace in summer, but expecting a room with more space. We were not disappointed, the room was large and nicely decorated. The bathroom was roomy, and had an interesting walk-in shower with glass doors. Not any spectacular scenic views as it sits in its closed courtyard in a light business/residential neighborhood. Comfortable beds, tile flooring with tasteful decorating, a warm and friendly staff, and a very nice restaurant make your stay totally relaxing and enjoyable.
You are only a few blocks from the bustle of malls and an assortment of eateries, and the Tucson Botanical Gardens is a few blocks away. It was a wonderful get-away from the normal busy hotel/motel environment, and we will be sure to return here on our next trip.
