Tucson is known for its luxurious desert resorts, but you don't have to be well-heeled to travel here in style. The city is home to dozens of budget-friendly hotel chains and comfortable independently-owned lodges.
One of the most convenient and budget-friendly hotels in downtown Tucson is the Hotel Tucson City Center Conference Suite Resort, a sprawling hotel located just off Interstate 10 at the edge of downtown Tucson. The spacious guestrooms and well-maintained grounds are clean and comfortable, and you can upgrade to a "presidential" suite with in-room jacuzzi tub. In the morning, guests can enjoy a large, hot breakfast buffet featuring hotcakes, sausage, gravy and biscuits, scrambled eggs and other breakfast items.
If you're looking for a slightly more hip stay, head to the historic Hotel Congress, situated in the heart of downtown. The hotel rooms are clean and nearly bare-bones, but that's all part of the hotel's historic charm (rooms famously do not have in-room TVs, although they are equipped with antique radios and large iron beds).
