We were attending an event at Centennial Hall. 20 minute walk from the hotel. So the location was ideal. Room was clean and comfortable. Shower was large, water pressure and temp good. Bed and pillows were nice. 2 free bottles of water and free parking were both a plus. Would stay again.

Beds were clean, TV great, I could...

I didn't have high expectations so I suppose my expectations were met. The staff was lovely. The wifi service was patchy and unreliable which made things very tough on this business trip. The rooms were simple but everything I needed was in there. I wouldn't discourage anyone from staying here but wouldn't proactively recommend it either.

Thank Glenn J
Management response:

Hi Glen, Sorry to hear you were having difficulties with our wifi, we're on it. Our free, high speed internet is certainly one of our top amenities here at Aloft. I agree with you, we have a lovely staff here, so thanks for the shout out to them.

Overall, an ok hotel. Rooms are modern but no frills. My room had great view of mountains. However, I believe I got food poisoning from the bar food. I ended up getting stuck in my room for 24 hours. Hotel front desk was nice about extending my stay and they even brought bananas to my room, but I would have...

Management response:

Greetings Katherine, Hope you are feeling better. Thank you for kind words about our Front Desk talent! You are correct, we are a limited service hotel, everything you need and nothing you don't. Our Marriott/Starwood family does offer many hotel choices in the full service category that offer the amenities you were looking for. We hope you'll give us another...

We were down for the Tucson Festival of Books and decided to give this place a try, since it was so close to where we were working that weekend. You can see they've done work on the place and doing a good job. Underground and parking lot parking adds convenience. Modern lobby designed to entertain and relax. Rooms were comfortable...

I stayed at the Aloft hotel for a week while visiting a family member. The hotel was clean and the room was very spacious. The location was very convenient, close to many restaurants. It was also very close to the university, which was a little noisy. The staff was very accommodating and helpful. The hotel did have a busy lounge...

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...
