My three good friends and I were looking forward to an exciting girl's weekend at the fabulous Tucson Festival of Books, "TFOB," held at the University of Arizona every March. Four months in advance of the event I, "Ms. Proactive," designated myself in charge of accommodations. We decided that the nearby Tucson University Park Hotel would be the perfect choice....

I apologize that your stay and booking the reservation was so difficult so I have refunded half your room rate. You will see that credit within 3 business days on your credit card statement. Going through a transition is difficult for guests and our staff. I appreciate you letting us know of your difficulties so that we may correct those...

This was a nice hotel. I really appreciate the open atrium style facility. Some of the other reviews said the place was a bit tired, but that was not how I found it. I thought it was quite nice. Comfortable bed. Clean. No issues.

Was here only for one night and would've stayed longer if schedule allowed. Nice bar, good room service. On University grounds. Good place to stay for families of students. Friendly staff. Lively area of town.

My husband is a lifetime Marriott gold member (and has been a platinum on some years before we recently retired) and when we travel the world we usually stay at Marriott properties. This one would rate at the very lowest end of the Marriott spectrum on both the property itself and the front desk staff. We did not receive our...

Arrived late on Sunday at 10 pm after a long flight only to find the water had been shut off and wouldn't be on until the morning. I get it you have to do maintenance but seriously? An 8 hour water outage? No compensation but they gave me a jug of water. Fine. Made due. Then I get to the...

Best location next to The University of Arizona and many restaurants in Tucson, Arizona.. The staff has always been friendly. However, the hotel is showing its age, needs to be updated and is pricey. Concierge food is only fair.
