My husband and I stayed here for me to attend a conference at the University of Arizona School of Nursing. The location is very convenient and easily walkable. The hotel has a very hip modern feeling with the sports bar in the lobby and younger people at the front desk. It has plenty of free parking both outside and underground....

I stayed here with my son so he could tour the University of Arizona. I was very skeptical as the reviews talked about the noise there. After weighing the hassle of getting a car and staying somewhere else, or staying there where we could walk, we booked. The room was very comfortable. I am a light sleeper, and didn't hear...

I stayed at the hotel while attending an international committee meeting at the university. First the best bits: as a European I found the room huge with plenty of space. The view from my seventh floor room was incredible and with a comfortable chair to sit in to work at the desk or stare out the window that was very...

We stayed just one night to visit family. We picked this hotel because it is walking distance to the University. The hotel is just "Ok". We like to stay in hotels that have a bar to relax at. I am not sure if 4 bar stools and a counter should count as a bar! The staff was very helpful, and...

I booked a trip to visit my son who goes to the U of A. In the past I have stayed at the Marriott. We tend to stay at Marriott's when we travel. So let's compare the Marriott to Aloft, Parking--Aloft offers free parking. Marriott has valet and a parking garage for I believe $12 a day extra. No sure...

Right in the heart of the University of Arizona, and near to downtown, this hotel has a great location. The rooms are comfortable and spacious. The bathroom sink is outside the area of the toilet and the shower, which is a great convenience for two people staying in a room. The shower could use a grab bar, because the shower...

Nothing I don't like about this hotel and been staying there for last 4 years at least once a month to see my kids in college. Always clean, staff always friendly, and best location next to university. Also has free parking underground which is nice and very convenient. Food available 24 hours a day. Very trending bar and lobby space...

Reception area had a very cool feel and so did the employee working there. This hotel is right across the street from U of A. It has a college type feel to it. Rooms feel like a glorified dorm room. Nice bar, pool table in lounge. Food area where you can't purchase food, snacks and fresh fruit. Right across the...

Thanks for the review Dana. I am sorry the traffic noise get you up. We do have ear plugs available to ease the noise.

Booked this hotel during the Gem show time in Tucson. Aloft was the cheapest hotel with great amenities and a modern design.

This hotel has a great location for visiting the U of A campus and it was an ideal spot for my stay as the conference I was attending was only a few blocks away. That being said, you pay for the location - quite a bit more than you would for a similar quality hotel elsewhere. There are a lot...

Thank for taking the time to give us some feedback. We especially like the 5 stars for cleanliness. I apologize for the noise you encountered. Our location is right across from the University and Banner Health Hospital. We do have earplugs at our desk if you need. Thanks again for staying with us.
