Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Tucson East
Stayed here the first week of April and found the rooms to be clean, quiet, and good sized. The pool was fine and would have enjoyed spending more time there but rains changed our plans. Did not eat on property as the menu was limited and there are so many great choices when it comes to dining in the Tuscon area. My boys especially enjoyed the night-time treat that a staff member showed up with every night: cookies and a beverage.
Not great for families
The nicest thing about this hotel is the lobby. The rooms are average and the pool is small. The 4 days we were there we saw not one other kid (except for ours) in the hotel, pool, etc. Thought during spring break it might be more lively. Food choices in the hotel were not family friendly. Not the best and not the worse hotel..wouldn't stay here again.
Really Should Be *** and half
Pretty decent, cookie cutter hotel with massive and empty atrium lobby.
Great pool area. Good Sized Room with lots of nice room perks. Overall pretty clean. Decor was dated, but I booked via a discount reservation service and got a substantially discounted rate and felt is fair price for the room.
I stayed for business for to nights as a cabin crew member. On the 2nd February I had room service eggs benadict. Within fve hours I became very sick and on leaving the hotel reported this to the receptionist who shrugged it off. At this point I found out that my work college who eat the same breakfast suffered the same symtons. We left but the captain had to stop the aircraft at Miami on the way to Cube so we could get to a hotel to see a doctor, the aircraft continued on and picked us up two days later when we were able to fly. We still needed to see doctors on arrival back to the UK.
A real nice hotel
We stayed here from 12/27/03 - 1/3/04 and the hotel was very nice. The front part of the hotel was glass and you had a view of the mountains when you rode on the elevator. The room was clean and large. They left cookies in the room every evening which was a nice touch. We had the breakfast buffet once. The selection was okay, not a lot to choose from. The food and service was good. If you have kids they probably wouldn't like the tv stations. They didn't have Disney, Nickelodeon or The Cartoon Network. Overall an excellent hotel with plenty of parking too.
Decent location, comfy rooms.
GOOD: Pretty mountain views, nice executive level lounge / rooms. Lots of free parking. Close to lots of restaurants and shops. Awesome atrium w/glass elevators. Modern decor, in great shape -- looks brand new!
BAD: Rooms (especially bathrooms) are pretty small, but are still comfortable.
I would recomend this Hotel highly. Staff were all helpful and friendly. Rooms spotless, large and well furnished. Breakfast buffet gave a good choice. The Hotel is busy but the lobby - and amazing mountain views - never make you feel it's crowded. A nice atmosphere.
Good pool area. It's a bit out of town but shops for general needs just across road
We travel to Tucson yearly to visit relatives. This was one of the best hotel experiences as far as cleanliness and mountain views.When we first checked in I had commented that on the internet we read the hotel had been recently remodeled. The clerk told us only the upper floors had been remodeled. I then asked for a room on one of those floors and was told there was no availabiltiy! Our room could have used remodeling but at least it was clean! I think because we got such a decent price by shopping online that the hotel then gives you one of the older rooms that need updating. The front desk staff could have been friendlier and more pleasant but overall it was a good experience.
Worth every penny
Could not have asked for a better experience. From check in to check out it was way above my expectations for local hotels, even the pricier resorts. Truly enjoyed the Friday Seafood Buffet.
Beware of the mountainview, east wing rooms over the trash dumpster that are emptied between 6 and 6:30 A. M. each morning.
Pluses are great parking, housekeeping, excellent eating, and location.

As we drove across New Mexico on our way to Tucson, we saw an almost constant stream of billboards for "The Thing". None provided much information but they definitely hyped the 'mystery'. I checked out Wikipedia (mobile internet is our friend) and discovered that The Thing was a mummified woman and child in a glass topped coffin originally created for a '60s era sideshow. We were due for a stop and it was only going to be $1 so we exited the highway to be ...

... This area is home to Hereford, TX, the largest beef town in the world.
