My wife and I had the honor of staying at The University Aloft Hotel. Aloft hotel is located at 1900 E Speedway Blvd, which is a minutes walk to the University of Arizona and a short drive to Tucsons Famous 4th Ave Art District. This Hotel has a very modern, contemporary look, which is unlike any other hotel. We relaxed in the Splash area during the day and played pool while enjoying libations at the Re:mix lounge that night. We recommend walking to the Tucson Sunlink, and taking it to the Tucson Downtown area for a night of dinning, dancing and, ect. By the way the Hotel is very dog friendly.
Trip Advisor-If you want a cool and convenient place to stay while visiting your student at U of A, this is the place! Very close to campus, new, cool style, friendly staff, plenty of parking either underground or behind. Kind of unique experience compared to other properties. Very clean, good food and a fun bar for that anytime drink. Has a decent w to out facility too. Fairly moderate price, I would say worth every penny.
