NEXT TO U of A

I never write reviews but this was a great hotel. I was there to visit U of A and this is directly across the street. The room was great. More modern than I like but very nice. They have a trendy bar/restaurant in the lobby I did not eat at, but the other guests seemed to be down there at all times during the day. The staff was very nice and professional. They called cabs for me while I was there and also gave recommendations for local places to eat/visit. All of that and only cost $83/ night. If I come back to Tucson, AZ I will be staying here again.

Fantastic Place

Our Stay at the ALOFT Hotel was outstanding, the rooms were very clean and I loved the decoration and style in our room. Overall the Hotel itself was fantastic the staff very helpful and informative. The layout of the lobby was great, with access to the bar, a great waiting area even a pool table, access to internet, I my husband has medical issues and must be checked every 6 months at the University Hospital, you can bet I will be staying at this hotel every time we come to town!
