Aloft Tucson University

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

In town for a college tour for my son, the hotel exceeded all of my expectations. Will be staying at this location again.

Pool area not that nice Staff very nice Close to U of A

Spent two nights. The first night it was pretty loud but still wound up having a great night's rest. The beds were very comfortable. The view from the room was pretty good.

Modern decor. Beds were fairly comfortable. A bit weird having black lights in the elevator, but I'm used to a more traditional decor. Nice courtyard. Had some difficulty figuring out the light switches. Helpful staff

Clean spruced up modern. Kinda like the IKEA of hotels. My only beef was that the lights worked in a series and it was tough to get some of them on, with out all of them in. So I'm walking around the place hitting one switch so some lights aren't all off or on. Basically a design issue. Solid place. I paid 123$ via Orbitz.

The decor is definitely not taking advantage of Tucson history & culture. It would be typical in Germany, though. Lots of grays and purples and very modern. The room was large, the shower huge, the overall ambiance fine. It was very convenient to our destination and the University. The only point I have against the room was the small, uncomfortable, built-in couch - very typical for the style but just not worth sitting on. So only one desk chair for the room.

Very good experience. Close to my destination.

Basic hotel in decent location. Good for college students.

The rooms are great as is the lobby, w/ pool table, lots of seats/TV's and a patio/pool out back. Stylish place w/ lots of character.

Room was not clean! I stay with Aloft everywhere I travel, I was really let down by this one.

A very clean and comfortable hotel in Tucson, AZ. Nice rooms and nice amenities.

Everything was nice, close to u of a but the pool was green and smelt odd out side area was a mess, my room was also next to the elevator which wasn't very quiet with other guest. I also had asked for more towels and the employee walked right in to my room with out knocking.

It's on Speedway, major boulevard. Noise issue to me.

The Aloft facility was spartan and cold. The room had leaky and slippery shower and the floors were dirty. The bed was very comfortable. There were exposed electrical wires and water damaged walls. The light switches did not work.There was no complimentary breakfast and for the money there should have been. We won't be back.

Good location if visiting the university. Nice bar for an evening cocktail. Love the cook to order breakfast option and free coffee. Staff is very nice and attentive.

If you are heading to a ball game at the University, there is no better hotel. All the amenities you could want and just blocks from the football stadium and basketball arena.

Not ideal for the business traveler. Internet service is poor. I had trouble maintaining a Skype call. No dressers. There are some shelves in a closet you can use if you are tall. I had to continually ask for a liner for the ice bucket. Didn't like the elevators. There are musty, dark and illuminated by blacklights; the blacklights are cool if you are 12 years old, not 58. Outdoor pool is quite small.

Outstanding location and staff! Great Value for the Amenities.

The room was great clean big soft beds breakfast. All amenities. Elevator so neat underground parking just great

We were going to stay at another location but then later found out that the room didn't have AC, unless you paid for an upgraded room. We stumbled across this hotel and happy we did. It was great!

Thank you so much for the positive review. Our lift is part of the style theme here but it is getting a face lift soon. You may like the new color.

I am very sorry we did not meet your expectations. I will share this with our Refresh Manager. We are known for our cleanliness here, so this is very unusual.
