Seattle, Washington
Reviewed 30 September 2016 via mobile

This Marriott is constructed in a motel style atmosphere with external hallways overlooking a courtyard. The concept is outdated. The room was very large and clean and handled my business needs well. The location next to the University was nice and allowed us to check out the surrounding area by walking.

Thank you for filling out a survey of the Tucson University Park Marriott. The hotel is scheduled for a major renovation in 2017 which we all look forward to. Just to clarify, this hotel is built in an atrium style similar to many urban Marriott hotels and the hallways are interior, facing the atrium style lobby. We are very happy...

This is an elegant Marriott property--the lobby is beautifully decorated with water features, rooms are spacious and well-appointed, and there are nice amenities on property (concierge lounge, bar/restaurant, gift shop, fitness/pool). The staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel is located directly adjacent to University of Arizona, so there are plenty of eating and drinking options close by. For all...

We stayed here for a volleyball tournament. It is right next to the university. The first night we didn't even know about the University Boulevard, which borders the hotel. It has many cool restaurants and shops and plenty of outdoor seating. I would definitely stay here again.

From the moment we were greeted at check-in, the staff at this hotel treated us like royalty. Overall, we found our room clean, comfortable, and quiet. The room window curtains were visibly dusty, and the lounge breakfast food was bare minimum. Even so, we look forward to our next stay at this extremely friendly, well-located hotel.

Just had a day to spend in Tucson and this hotel was the perfect location. Right next to the university along with plenty of restaurants. If you didn't mind a little longer walk it was convenient to fourth avenue and downtown. Room was dated but clean. King size bed was comfortable and rest of room was spacious. There is free...

Was booked for us the company we were visiting at a "special" rate of 89+++, yeh it's the +++ that pushes up the price and pushes this hotel out of it's league of being good value.

Thank you for filling out a review of the Tucson Marriott. The hotel is located next door to the University of Arizona where all parking is at a premium. We rent spaces for our guests from the University in their parking garage so yes there is a $13.00 charge for self parking. We offer competitive prices the vast majority of...

Well, I saw service go downhill when I stayed here a year ago and it continues. This was probably the worst check-in experience I've had at a Marriott in years... no mention of the MR platinum status and I had to ask for details about parking, about the concierge lounge, about what the 3rd key they gave me was for,...

Dear FlyGuy47, Thank you for taking the time to share your concerns regarding your recent stay with us.

My room was spacious and the view was nice. It is really easy to get around in the city. The Valet was slow but friendly. The concierge lounge needed more food choices and the fridge was never stocked fully. Their was a musty smell near the elevators on both floors. As a platinum member, I expect to be upgraded but...

Thank you for filling out a survey on the Tucson University Park Marriott. The hotel is scheduled for a renovation in 2017. We are cleaning all the carpets on the elevator landings this week which should correct the issue you mentioned. Thank you for your feedback as it provides us the opportunity to improve our service.

Great stay at a hotel next to the University of Arizona. Rooms were spacious. Had a great view of the mountains and downtown. Staff very helpful. Outdoor pool was lovely but a little small. Jacuzzi next to it. Good buffet breakfast. Nice bar. Scenic indoor lobby. Good sundries shop. If I have to come back, I will certainly stay here.

We have stayed at the Marriott University Park several times. Located next to the University of Arizona campus, which is VERY convenient! Walking distance to the campus, to many restaurants and bars. Good service, clean, restaurant and bar on site. Will return while our son is a student at U of A.
