5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014 via mobile

Came this direction to watch a performance at the Rialto Theatre. For the price, this place really exceeds expectations. Rooms are super clean and spacious with a technological touch. Love the bar area and patio section as well. Fun vibe and the value is unbeatable.

Stayed April 2014, travelled with friends

I was in town looking for a venue for a fashion show and let me say...wow!!! I was very impressed! The Property is Gorgeous! Ian Wilson took care of me and made sure my stay was exceptional. He was very quick and to the point with booking the venue and i must say he gave some of the best service till this day. I am now a Starwood member because of the amount of travel I do in the area. Besides the service the W XYZ Bar is awesome, and runs a daily happy hour for $3 beers and $6 well mixed drinks which my partner and I took advantage of. All in all, this property is perfect. It’s right next to University of Arizona and in the heart of Tucson. Beds are comfy, rooms are modern and it’s definitely a place I will be returning to! The Director of Sales, Ian is great and made bookings for my Entertainment company simple. I Highly recommend this Hotel and look forward to hosting my event there in September.

My girlfriend and I chose this hotel because of the location and because of the great reviews it got online. We were not disappointed. We were greeted by Ashley H. and Autumn when we arrived. They thanked us for staying with them and gave us a rundown of the immensities in the hotel. Ashley H. even told us if we call ahead we can lock in our current rate any time we visit.

The rooms were clean and beds were very soft. It was just the right amount of space for a couple to not be stepping over top each other. I was very happy to be on Speedway right by campus and so close to the nightlife. I would definitely stay here again!

I stay at the Aloft Tucson almost weekly for work and I have experienced extremely consistent customer service and quality of accommodations. The location is solid, the rooms are modern and comfortable and the staff is always friendly and goes out of there way to help. Marie Rubio consistently goes out of her way to help and assist me with anything that comes up while I'm Tucson.

Green Features: Seems to be solid. They offer extra starpoints if you don't have room cleaned daily

As a business traveler, it can be annoying being on the road and away from the comforts of home. Maria Rubio always helps me with reservations. She gave me her direct contact information so I can reach out to her to make accommodations. I frequently have changes and she helps me with ease. The hotel staff is always very helpful and friendly, especially Miss Marie.

My husband and I brought my stepdaughter to do a new student campus tour. She will be starting U of A in the fall. We were intrigued by the idea of a "budget" W and especially because of the location, decided to stay at Aloft. I'm glad we did, and when I bring her back in June for Orientation, I'll stay here again. It was just a very easy, pleasant place to stay. The underground parking was convenient, the staff friendly, the room clean and well appointed. Breakfast was good and not unreasonably priced. And it was nice to get a $5 card toward food or drinks by opting not to get housekeeping one day. Ashley H. was the staff person who assisted us most and like everyone we spoke with, she was friendly and helpful. And like all the staff we met, she's a student at U of A, so we were able to get some questions about the campus answered. Aloft, by the way, is about a 15 minute walk from the Bookstore in the Student Union, where the tour started. It was an easy walk but something to consider in the heat.

I booked this hotel for a conference. Lobby and rooms comfortable and clean. All the staff I encountered were amazing. I had a phone interview for my dream job while attending the conference, but I was experiencing phone issues. Chris from the front desk assured me he would find a solution while I was at the conference, and they did. They went out of the way to make sure I was relaxed and had a successful interview. This is one of the best business hotel stays I have had in years
