GreenLeaders Gold level
The Hotel Congress, built in 1919, is the cultural landmark that anchors Downtown Tucson. We pride ourselves on the many unique features we offer that youʼd be hard pressed to find anywhere else. Some cynical city slickers might notice the absence of televisions in our 40 rooms and feel slighted. But itʼs intentional. We strive to maintain the hotelʼs original ambiance from the iron bed to the vintage radio, the rumble of the nearby train to the 1930’s-style phone that connects to a real switchboard at the front desk. And, unlike most historic hotels, all rooms have private bathrooms and air-conditioning. We are an urban, historic, rock ‘n’ roll hotel. Your room may be affected by plaza, nightclub, or street noise. If you would like to stay in one of our quieter rooms, please make arrangements at the time of your reservation. We do not give discounts or refunds due to noise. Earplugs are available at the front desk. Or, better yet, just join in the fun!

I've struggled with how most fairly to capture our recent stay, and decided ultimately that if you're billing yourself as a Hotel, then how you perform as a place to sleep should really matter. Many of the most positive reviews are only attesting to the...More

Aww thank you for your awesome review! I am so glad you enjoyed Thanksgiving with us at the Cup Cafe. I love your Margarita and turkey combo. I look forward to your future visit with us.

Went to breakfast with 8 people and everyone had huge portions. From oatmeal to pancakes, cast iron skillet eggs or fruit and yogurt, everything was very good but also very filling. Very cool historic hotel with an eclectic vibe and some cool historical pieces.

Aren't the portions amazing! I am so glad you enjoyed our award winning restaurant. I invite you to stay a night with us or enjoy our night club next time you visit us to get the full Hotel Congress experience. See you soon!

Our room was nice and cool, no a/c was needed but that was in May, not July or August. Plenty of parking available in nearby garage, a bit of a walk, but not uncomfortable. Creative juggling I would recommend!

Yes, there is AC in the rooms. As for parking, there's an underground lot across the street. You get a ticket at the gate, take it back to the front desk and they'll validate it. There's also very limited street parking... More
