Spacious Suites amid Mountainous Arizona Landscape
Look in any direction in downtown Tucson and you'll see mountains. There are so many mountain ranges it can be keep track of all of them—there's the Santa Catalina and Tortolita Mountains to the north, the Santa Rita range to the south, and in the west, the Tucson Mountains. You can get a view of all of these mountains when you step outside the Hotel Tucson City Center InnSuites Conference Suite Resort, which is located on 9 landscaped acres in the historical downtown area. The resort acts as a sort of oasis amid the desert heat; it's decorated in vivid reds and yellows and stands out against the backdrop.
Outside, the resort grounds are lush with well-tended greenery, and there are a number of trails that wind through the property. Feel free to cool off in the Olympic-size heated outdoor pool, and then lounge in one of the shaded cabanas. Each morning, there's a complimentary hot breakfast buffet at the onsite PJ's Cafe, which serves eggs, potatoes, belgian waffles, and sausage.
Spacious suites offer a separate living room and a bedroom decked out with tall headboards, crisp white-and-red linens, and a hovering remote-controlled bellhop. Some suites overlook the pool; in the presidential jacuzzi suite, the bed sits directly opposite a soaking jacuzzi built for two.
Tucson: Southwestern History and Culture amid the Cacti
Tucson—also known as the Old Pueblo—is a bastion of southwestern history and rich culture surrounded by mountains and desert. It's existed as an outpost for years, and as such it's absorbed elements from European, Native American, Mexican, and Asian cultures. Today, you can get an idea of this unique blend in downtown proper's restaurant scene, where you can get authentic chilies rellenos, delicately prepared sushi, or upscale bistro fare with fine wines from nearby vintners.
If you're willing to make a short trip outside of downtown, you can get an idea of the area's gorgeous natural landscape at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, a combined botanical garden and zoo located about 20 miles west of the hotel. Spread across 21 acres of desert scenery, you can find mountain lions, gila monsters, and more than 1,200 kinds of plants.
Mission San Xavier del Bac, the "White Dove of the Desert," is one of the oldest intact European structures in Arizona. It's a sprawling white adobe church that was built in the 1700s, a striking example of the area's Spanish Colonial architecture. Its interiors are lined with frescoes and fine sculpture. You can find it about 10 miles south of downtown.
