Embassy Suites Tucson - Paloma Village
Why We Love This Hotel
- Though it's a chain hotel, the heated outdoor pool with mountain views and better-than-average breakfast set it apart
- All rooms are spacious two-room suites with big bathrooms and nice private balconies
- Thoughtful extras include a manager's reception with snacks and cocktails
- Set in the Santa Catalina foothills, a 10-minute walk to trendy shopping, restaurants and galleries, and across the street from upscale shopping center La Encantada
The business- and family-friendly Embassy Suites Tucson Paloma Village looks like the brand's typical chain outpost. But its location in the Santa Catalina foothills and the wealth of thoughtful freebies set it apart.
Each guest room is a spacious two-room suite, with a big bathroom and a lovely private balcony. Views of the mountains can be spied from the well-kept pool and hot tub, or from the lively fire pit area where lots of comfy seating sets the tone for successful evening socials, at which complimentary snacks and cocktails are served.
The location draws a wide range of travelers, like those attracted to the natural beauty of the Finger Rock and Pima Canyon Trail, or the trendy restaurants, shops and art galleries within a 10-minute walk. A tasty and generous daily breakfast is free.
