At the base of Sentinel Peak and a stone’s throw from the excitement of Downtown Tucson, this Desert Modernist gem from Design Hotels™ Originals Vishal & Sunny Patel is a springboard to both adventure and indulgence.
Unlike the tumbleweeds that whirl about the surrounding desert, this 112-room property is firmly rooted in its location, both in spirit and style. A boomerang-shaped pool serves as an oasis of (socially-distant) interaction and cultural experimentation with a calendar of music, local art, outdoor movie screenings, tastings, and craft workshops—and an American Southwest-inspired menu of cocktails and culinary treats. A boutique store in the unique butterfly-shaped Welcome Building also allows one to take local products away with them—a perfect road trip stock-up point. The Tuxon Hotel also boasts its own private desert and cactus garden for contemplation, as well as a restaurant-bar by Jess Keene and Drew Record, a native Tucsonan who’s no stranger to a Michelin star. Sample local craft beer, coffee, and cocktails here, and then go out and explore.
The Tuxon Hotel lies at the foot of Sentinel Peak and on the bank of the Santa Cruz River—a place known as the birthplace of Tucson, Arizona. With the heart of Downtown just to the east, the evolving Mercado district to the north, and the desert mountains to the west, the property is a perfect jumping-off point for exploring the many tastes of the country’s first UNESCO City of Gastronomy, with some of the nation’s most lauded Mexican restaurants—such as El Charro and Mi Nidito—within biking distance. A bustling farmers market and a selection of independent shops and eateries await at Mercado San Agustin, while a number of cycling trails, mountain walks, and climbing routes promise adrenaline, adventure, and endless vistas of natural beauty nearby.
