We stayed two nights in mid-August. This is a large hotel, and it is nowhere near the heart of the city - they don't hide that fact, but as a Tucson newbie I was surprised just how far it is from downtown. You certainly can't walk anywhere. On the first night, after driving all day I wanted to avoid driving downtown for dinner. The front desk told me it would cost $30 one way for a taxi to the city center. So we drove, and it was 20 minutes at least.
I was disappointed by many factors... the very dated decor, tiny bathroom, *thunderously loud* air conditioner units, only one elevator working the duration of our stay (really? no elevator repair service in Tucson?). It seemed the window had not been cleaned for a very long time, but the room appeared well kept. We stayed on the seventh floor with access to the executive lounge. It's hard to complain about free drinks/snacks/breakfast, but it didn't meet the standard set in other hotels with similar "exclusive" services.
That said, the price was right at just $95/night on executive level. I got what I paid for, and did sleep soundly (with earplugs). So this was an affordable stay, but nothing special in any way.
