Breakfast in Texas, lunch in New Mexico and supper in Arizona Stopped in to tombstone, neat place, a little off season so not all open yet. Had fun at Big Nose Kate's Saloon. This morning we found out we were on the edge of hurricane Manuel, flash flood warnings for west Texas, we dodged major rain till noon, then we were good. One small shower, then cleared up and rode into the sunset into ...
Warning: lots of cute doggie pictures!!
We got to Daddy and Linda's mid-afternoon. I was looking forward to emptying the car and taking showers. We were warmly greeted and the trip was off to a great start.
Every day was a good day. No matter what we did it was just good and everyone was content. A highlight for me was showing Linda the Wii and watching her play baseball. I hope Daddy gets up and plays too! We also showed them Netflix and how to use a new ...
... there, this evenings food was a variety of Mexican dishes followed by the ranch's Star Party. The party consisted of a local amateur astronomer (which despite being a geek was a triple hard ******* who spent 35 years rapelling out of helicopters above various national parks across the states), who showed us various parts of the night sky through his 150x telescope. We observed Jupiter and its moons, Saturn and its rings, the moon, and vega and another bright star. A very interesting ...
Today I got help from Enrique to find my father, he told me he worked at an appliance store, so we went there. The TV's in the store were loud and had colorful cartoons on them. I had lunch with my dad and caught up with him, we had the same thing on our burgers too! ...
... s grandson had a great time splashing and dropping rocks in the water. It was fresh and clear and had plenty of small fish darting around. We picnicked by the water on our sandwiches we had packed as I kept a close lookout for the “wild life” of the canyon. They have mountain lions, although rarely seen, they had had several recent spottings close to where the trolley went. My main concern were of a different species -reptiles and arachnids- of ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Suites Tucson
We got this place on priceline. We were quite surprised at the size and the atmospheree. The place is quiet and relaxing. They have a very nice pool right in the center. They have high speed interenet in room that is really affordable (bring laptop with wireless card). They have a small fridge and coffee. I went in March when Tucson is high season- but got this place for a great price and were very pleased. Staff was great and helpful, very willing to help any situation. I reccomend this place, you can't go wrong.
Had a wonderful stay
We stayed here in the Fall of 2003 and they were in the midst of remodeling. The rooms were very comfortable and large and now with the new furnishings must really be nice. The pool area was one of the nicest I have seen. Our stay came with a complimentary breakfast which was great. Don't hesitate to stay here.
Nice place to stay
My husband and I stayed here April 26-28th. I had read the reviews and was a little hesitant. We got an upgraded room with a AAA discount. It was nice, but not normal Radisson quality. The pool was very clean and well kept. Lots of places to sit in the shade and under umbrellas. We ate at the Breeze Restaurant and like other Radisson restaurants, the service of the food was poor. Our waitress, Kim, was exceptionally cheerful which made it worth the wait. We have not had good luck with any Radisson restaurant. I would not hesitate to stay here again, but Tucson is just not one of our favorite places to visit, but I would recommend it over many of the other hotels there.
Not very nice
I had to go to Tucson on business and all the other hotels in the area were full, so I stayed at the Radisson. I had to park in the back of the hotel, so I had to walk forever to get to my room. Not great if you're a woman traveling alone. All the halls are exterior corridors, so I felt very vulnerable coming and going from my room. My experience in the restaurant was not much better. My room was very "used." It was in need of updating. I was told my room had just been renovated--most of it looked old to me. I don't believe I will return.
Very Nice remodelled hotel
I thought this was very nice for an older hotel; my husband and I are partial to new hotels, but got a bargain on this hotel on hotwire.com, and we were pleasantly surprised. It has a central courtyard with a very nice pool, and everything was immaculate (it looked like they emptied the ashtrays outside the elevators hourly!) Yes, the carpet was badly stained, but the furniture was new and the rooms were very spacious. And they had the best in room coffee I have ever had at a hotel. It may not look like much from the outside, but if you give it a chance you will probably enjoy your stay.
This might be a good fit
We stayed at the Radisson during Thanksgiving. I believe that DoubleTree had let the property slide after they had decided to sell it to Radisson. The pool was clean during our stay. Several of the buildings were vacant, as the furniture had been removed, and there were painters and carpenters buzzing around everywhere re-doing the rooms.We had a 2 room apartment with a coffee maker and a small refrigerator. The furniture was basic, and everything appeared to be clean. Some of the tiles in the bathroom were cracked, but not badly for a hotel of 'that age'. The bathrooms had 2 sinks and a separate tub and shower.We did not eat in the restaurant, as we were in Tucson to see relatives, but I did see a sign in the lobby that said 'Changes are in progress, and you will be pleased'.
After reading reviews here, was really hesitant. Our bid was accepted on priceline for this hotel, so off we went. Had absolutely no problems with this hotel. It's now the Radisson. A large section of the hotel was undergoing renovation. We heard absolutely nothing. No noise, construction hammers, nothing. Our room, suite, was large. Small refrigerator and microwave when you walk in with a desk and chair. Sofa sleeper in living area with television. Bedroom also had tv. Balcony off living room. Large bathroom, separate shower and bath. Very comfortable room. Solid 3*hotel. Not a lot of tv channels, only disney for kids, no nick or cartoon network. Large closet. Two sinks. Upgraded amenities. Saw some kids in the pool, but it seemed too cold for us.
Had a Great Time
We spent a week at the Doubletree and had a wonderful time. We had a poolside room and spent a great deal of time in both the pool and hot tub. The rooms were very clean and the service was above average. The kitchen area was very limited; but we weren't there to cook - so, it really didn't have any bearing on our stay. We look forward to staying there again.
Stayed here for 5 nights, our room faced the pool area with Alexanders Bistro across the way. Our first day there, we went to the pop machine, to find that all 6 of the machines that we tried were out of product, geez, we couldn't even get a bottle of water. They were empty for the lenghth of our stay. We ended up going to the gift shop to get one. After that we took a drive to the nearest Walmart, and purchased our own pop to keep in our room. Not to mention all the large stains on the carpet throughout the room. The cookies upon check in were the only thing that impressed me. Too bad we booked this place ahead of time for the 5 nights. It was very quiet !!
Come and see what the new Radisson Suites Tucson has to offer.
We stayed here for three nights. Our door faced the pool but there were no windows on that side of our suite. Our balcony was right over the restaurant roof and exhaust fan. We had to keep the doors closed and the air conditioning on. We felt very closed in.The pool was large, but was dirty and filled with leaves. Many of the (few) patio chairs were broken and the tables were dirty and sticky. It was obvious that they had never been wiped off.We had dinner in the restaurant one night. The mozzarella sticks were still frozen inside and they offered to recook the half eaten ones! The service was extrememly slow.We rented a movie one night that didn't work. We complained but were still charged full price. I also discovered that were charged for two phone calls (.84 ea) that we never made.We were very disappointed with our stay here.
