a good place to stay for week in southern arizona

Have had some great feedback from my earlier posts regarding our arizona trip early february. I think we are pretty much decided on a day in phoenix to refresh and pick up a car. then head north to sedona and on to grand canyon. return south for last week and warmer temps. we thought tucson may be the best place to stay as would be pretty central for moving around the area. any suggestions on that thought ? if we decide on tucson where would be the best areas to stay in and any suggestions for scenic drives and hikes?

many thanks

In Tucson, are you wanting a hotel, resort or rental? All of those that are nice will be located in good areas. Tucson is a very safe city.

For things to do, go to the Tucson forum and look at the Top Questions at top right for things to do. It includes a link to a blog by MikeP which has even more info.

This is high season. If you arrive in Tucson in the first half of the month, hotel rates here are at their highest for the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show, the largest such show in the world.

ThanksBob, I will take your advice and have a look at MikeP's blog, although I am now wondering if we have hit on the wrong time to visit Tucson beacause of the influx of people for the Gem and Mineral show. As you say hotel rooms may be hard to come by and at a premium. Any other suggestions for a good place to centre for our last week would be appreciated.

Thanks again

You might look at Tubac, http://www.tubacaz.com/ It is a little less than an hour south of Tucson, so same nice weather. Shops/galleries, places to eat, historic site to tour. There is at least one B&B, and the golf course accommodations looked nice last time we stopped to eat at their restaurant. We've stayed at Hacienda Corona de Guevavi http://haciendacorona.com/ which is not right in Tubac, but is a lovely and historic location. tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g31292-d586240-…
