Perfect spot to explore all that downtown Tucson has to offer. Beautiful restoration of a historic property hosted by charming engaging people. Armory Hour and breakfast expertly prepared and presented by Dora the Explorer, make the whole experience memorable.

The Inn is beautiful and was the perfect weekend getaway but what makes this place even more unique is the service and care provided by the staff and management. They truly want all guests to have a wonderful time and were so welcoming!

One of the first things that I learned upon my arrival at the Armory Park Inn was that every room contained an original picture of an Arizona legend, and each room was named after that legend. My wife and I stayed in the Charles O. Brown room [he was a famous Tucson saloon keeper] . I find this ironic, because after my stay I believed that the Armory Park Inn, itself, will soon become an Arizona legend. The ecstasy began upon my arrival. To describe the Armory Park Inn as charming would be a gross understatement! You sense the spirit of history, that starts when you arrive and stays with you until long after you have left. The spirit is so strong that I wasn't surprised when the owner told me that she believes a ghost actually resides in one of the rooms. I can't say I blame the ghost, because if you have to spend eternity somewhere, this place might be just the ticket. Even though the sense of history is strong, our room was filled with cutting edge amenities (ie.. charging stations, flat screen tv, oversized bathroom with a refrigerator and modern shower, etc). The attention to detail and everything you experience while you are there shows how much thought and love the owner has put into the place. But it is not just the amazing smell and the decorative touches that make the Armory Park Inn so unique. The heart and the soul of the experience is most reflected by the people who work there. Due to a business meeting, my first morning I missed breakfast and I have been kicking myself ever since. The next morning I enjoyed an omelette that was one of the best I've ever had and can only be described as ethereal. My closest comparison to the Armory Park Inn would be to a stay I once enjoyed at the Mansion in Dallas. I was expecting to be blown away by the Mansion's opulence, instead I discovered that the secret to a really great hotel experience happens because of its people and the service they provide. So if you're in southern Arizona, and you're seeking something more than your run of the mill hotel experience, check out the charms of downtown Tucson and the Armory Park Inn. Maybe just like their resident ghost, you'll want to stay there as long as you can, I know I did.

We had the pleasure of staying at this inn and being hosted by Amy, the owner/innkeeper. It is a great property with high quality amenities, tasty breakfast, convenient location, luxury decor and comfortable furnishings. Amy is a fantastic host that knows Tucson. We are innkeepers who own and operate two small inns for many years and easily recognize the superior quality that this property offers. This place is highly recommended.

This small inn has just about everything you might want including great personal service and style. It’s close to downtown and a quick drive to UofA. Breakfasts are lovely and the happy hour is a great time to unwind and enjoy a cool beverage and a snack. Innkeepers are pros and know everything about Tucson.

From the moment we arrived Dora, our very friendly host, warmly welcomed us. The decor of this historic Inn is inspirational and so true to the Spanish architecture of the Inn's original era. Cozy seating areas, lovely dining rooms and comfortable patios from which we watched the first monsoon storm of the season open up - these all added up to a relaxing stay and a home-away-from- home atmosphere. OK- way nicer than my home! The cocktail & appetizer hour, a delicious fresh, hot breakfast including homemade scones, jam, bread - all served on gorgeous Mexican pottery. All these details made this one of our best vacations in Tucson. The Inn has every amentity you would expect from a high-end BnB. And even a motion-detecting nightlight-- that's attention to detail. We'll be back! And, Dora, as promised, we'll bring you some green chile!

As a native Tucsonan, I was reinvigorated with my love for Tucson and its history and beauty after my stay at the Armory Park Inn. The April desert was in full bloom with sahuaros, prickly pears, ocotillos and Palo Verde trees showing off their brilliant yellows, reds and pinks. Amy Draper, the delightful owner with a quick smile and nine generations of Tucson family history, has meticulously decorated each room with historical photos or paintings of significant people who helped shape the future and traditions of Tucson, along with furnishings, antiques or otherwise, that give the Inn an elegant yet casual southwestern feel. There are plenty of cozy sitting areas, inside and outside, to delve into available books on the history of Tucson, or nearby hikes or places to visit. Every amenity was met with either traditional talavera pottery dishes, Mexican hand blown glassware, beautiful monogrammed towels, robes and slippers, a workout gym, yoga mats, cruising bikes, an outdoor fire pit and lounge chairs with seating under shade or full sun in this quaint and special Inn. Our breakfast was delicious and beautifully presented while we sat under an outdoor covered patio in a peaceful setting. Whether you are an out-of-state visitor or a local resident, Armory Park Inn will be a special and memorable place that you will surely want to visit many times over.

We were a group of 8 attending a friends wedding nearby. rooms and decor in general are terrific! very true to the Tucson we love so much. The house made food was scrumptious and hospitality, the best! can't wait to come back

It is rare to find a hotel with so much love and care put into every little detail. It is like staying at a museum. Each room is named after one Tucson pioneer and uniquely (and very tastefully) decorated for that theme. The glass tray in our room has George Hands' pic incorporated in the design. Both the hostess Amy and the manager Dora are incredibly graceful and attentive. Dora, also a very talented bag designer, spent all her time in the kitchen preparing delicious food for happy hours and breakfast. She even made us Greek ice coffee in the hot afternoon. This place will be the reason we come back to Tucson besides saguaros, and San Xavier del Bac. You can always find comfort and luxury if you are willing to pay. However, only with a bit of luck and serendipity, one get to stay in such a soulful place.

We had so much fun at the Armory Inn. What a beautiful and comfortable place. Just like visiting a friends home. Extremely clean, comfortable beds and with every amenity You can think of, from bicycles to amazing food, It is a breath of fresh air to Tucson. Located near down town, walking distance to everything. I can not wait to go back. A must visit
