The Arizona Inn, a historic, boutique hotel in central midtown, was founded in the 1930s by Arizona’s first ever congresswoman and still owned and operated by the same family, is one of the best places to stay in Tucson—as long as you have fairly deep pockets ($329-$579); ($195-$309) during the summer. Much like other Tucson Resorts, Arizona Inn offers various summer specials and other romantic packages which usually include multiple nights and generally a dining option.
The Arizona Inn offers several different kinds of rooms, all of them decorated in the inimitable 1930s Southwester-chic style. The standard room has wireless internet, a king-sized bed, a television and DVD player, while the larger suites have patios, dry bars, and sitting areas.
You probably won’t be spending a lot of time in the room, as the grounds and lobby have so much charm to offer—there’s a 60-foot pool, old school tennis and all kinds of little quiet corners in the verdant, retreat-like setting behind the high pink walls.
Unlike most of the other Tucson Resorts that are located on the outskirts of town, the Arizona Inn is located in the heart of the city, just blocks away from the University of Arizona as well as University Medical Center.
