Traveling to Tucson? Base yourself at a cheerful Diamond Resorts International hotel, with everything you need for a comfortable stay in the Old Pueblo. Varsity Clubs of America – Tucson is a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner, designed with a partial kitchen and well-appointed bathroom in each of its accommodations; it features its own gift shop and, to help you cool off from the Arizona heat, is centered around a sparkling pool. But you likely came to Tucson to do more than just soak up the desert sun from a cushy lounger, so take advantage of the best hotel amenity of all: the fabulous address.
The property is set on Speedway Boulevard, one of the city’s most convenient thoroughfares. Getting around is easy, whether you prefer to wander among the massive aircrafts of the Pima Air & Space Museum or equally impressive cacti of Saguaro National Park. This southwestern destination also offers fabulous hiking trails, plus plenty of history, whether of the Spanish-colonial or wild-western variety. So learn about the first at the centuries-old San Xavier del Bac mission and the second at Old Tucson Studios, before checking out the incredible art galleries, picking up a beautiful Native American trinket and enjoying a Tex-Mex dinner – and let the hotel take care of the rest.

How to Get There
Excellent location and quiet inside. Can get to outer parts of town within 15-20 minutes. Suites are very clean, spacious, well decorated and updated and the kitchen has just about everything you need. Staff is always professional, helpful and friendly. The lobby is immaculate and inviting. The pool is well maintained and inviting. The fitness center is well equipped and clean. I haven't had one complaint the four times I have stayed there; very pleased each time.
This resort has it all. It is located fairly close to I-10. Our room is spacious and very clean. The appliances are pretty new. Granite countertops in the kitchen and bathroom. There is a pool table, ping pong table and foos ball table. All plates and utensils are in the kitchen area. The lobby area is clean. Parking is easy. I love it.
The accommodations are very clean and up-to-date. All the staff members I had contact with were very pleasant and helpful. We stayed on the 3rd floor west side room 326. If you would like to avoid the setting sun heat ask for a North facing room; though the shades did a great job of reducing the effect. These units are efficiency type apartments, and are equipped with a kitchen. You will enjoy your stay if you are visitng Tucson. It is also a great central location to launch you exploration. This property offers a great central location to launch your exploration of the local attractions; the Sonoran Desert Museum, the U of A museum and observatory, and the Mt. Lemmon...to name a few.
I was so pleased with our stay at this hotel. We had a gorgeous 2 bedroom suite with a balcony. Everything was remodeled and gorgeous. It was a great value for the money and a perfect place for a family. The staff was also very friendly and helpful!
ONLY complaint was that the bed was not to our liking. A bit too firm. The sofa was we'll used and as it was a sleeper sofa it wasn't great for sitting. As long as I'm being picky, could have used more spoons but there was plenty of dishwasher soap so we just ran a load every other day. Nice place and the staff could not have been nicer. Very personable and helpful people work there. From Front Desk to maids to maintenance they were friendly, personable and helpful. Groceries and restaurants are nearby.
