Hotel Congress

Top choice historic hotel in Tucson

Perhaps Tucson's most famous hotel, this is where infamous bank robber John Dillinger and his gang were captured during their 1934 stay, when a fire broke out. Built in 1919 and beautifully restored, this charismatic place feels very modern, despite period furnishings such as rotary phones and wooden radios (but no TVs). There's a popular cafe, bar and club on-site.

Avoid the Club Rooms (above the club, which has frequent live acts) if you're noise-sensitive. Pets are $10 per night.
