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
Spent a week in town visiting friends in the area. The one bedroom is small but it worked just fine for the 2 of us. Always nice to have a small kitchen and sitting area. The unit was in good condition. Staff very helpful and friendly. Nice pool and work-out room. This unit was on 3rd floor, so had a slight view of the mountains. My only complaint for me, I live in a quiet area, and this unit was almost on the corner of 2 very busy streets. I could hear the traffic and sirens at times in the night.
All of the staff have been most helpful with good information. All of the room supplies and kitchen appliances and utensils are of good quality. Many nice extras like a night light/flashlight device. Nice layout of the unit.
Stayed at this hotel while visiting family in Arizona. The kitchen area is a bit small. There is a 2 burner stove top, microwave, coffee maker, and a decent size fridge. We had a one-bedroom balcony room facing the pool and the mountains. The room was clean and the bathroom was nice. We used the sleeper sofa which was not too comfortable but an upgrade from the traditional spring mattress sofa. Have stayed multiple times and will stay again.
