This is Tucson: 5 unexpected hotels perfect for a Tucson staycation

Hotel Congress

The downtown icon has 40 hotel rooms, plus a club, restaurant and event space. You won’t get bored here (that also means it will be loud late, just FYI). This hotel, 311 E. Congress St., also goes way back — to 1919, in fact — and definitely preserves its historic ambiance. The hotel is right on the Sun Link streetcar line, so you can get all the way to the University of Arizona or the Mercado San Agustín without a car. Explore downtown without commuting back to the suburbs. Book any room between July 1-8 for stay dates from July 1- Aug. 26 for just $80.
