"I honestly don't have enough good things to say about Armory Park Inn. If you want a memorable experience in a historic home, don't bother looking anywhere else. You won't find anything else like it in downtown Tucson. My husband and I decided to drive down to Tucson while in Scottsdale visiting his dad. We're not huge resort people, so we were looking for an in-town boutique hotel close to restaurants, sites and historic neighborhoods. Nailed it! When we arrived, the owner, Amy, greeted us at the door and immediately made us feel welcome. She showed us around and told us about the history of the home (a travel stop for weary soldiers heading to the Presidio). As it turned out, we were the only guests that evening, so we had the whole place to ourselves which felt a bit like being allowed to stay alone overnight at your parents' house as a teenager. Somehow API is both luxurious and comfortable at the same time. There are seven beautifully appointed bedrooms (four downstairs and three up), as well as plenty of communal areas in which to congregate with others or quietly sit and read a newspaper. "Armory Hour" (yummy wine and snacks) is a nice way to meet and greet with the other guests, or you can choose to take your drink back to your room, if you're not feeling particularly sociable. Amy is a perfectionist in the very best way possible, and it shows in each and every detail. Every feature is intentional and precise - from the bathroom amenities to the Turkish towels and the bathrobes with slippers; from the lovely furnishings to the gorgeous landscaping. The beautiful antiques have been carefully selected by Amy to correspond with and accentuate the original history and beauty of the home. However, the entire inn also has been completely updated with modern comforts and conveniences, like hi-speed Wifi and wall-mounted cable TVs. Even the window blinds are remote controlled. The beds with their Frette linens are so comfortable you won't want to get up in the morning. But you will...because the breakfasts are divine. On our first morning, Amy made yogurt/granola parfaits, sous vide egg cups, sausages and fresh croissants. We were stuffed, but very happy. The following morning, Dora, the wonderful inn manager, blew me away with her almond scones. I swear, they were the best scones I've ever had. So much so that I asked if I could steal extras for later. (She gave me a brown paper bag to carry them.) She made eggs-to-order for my husband with toast and grapefruit jam she made from fruit from her backyard. I'm not a grapefruit person, but this tasted more like blood orange and was truly delicious. For me, Dora prepared a yogurt parfait with fresh fruit and her homemade granola, which I topped with the yummy grapefruit jam. The last morning, Dora again made scones, blueberry this time, and chile rellenos cups. A wonderful recipe which I think I will try at home. Unfortunately, it was chilly and mostly rainy while we were there, b"
"We stayed at the Armory Park Inn for a weekend with our kids. We came to Tucson to catch some basketball games, and had such a great time staying here. The kids absolutely loved the “Inn” experience and the hospitality was beyond our expectations. The owner , Amy and her inn manager Dora, were such a delight to speak to. The breakfast that was served each day was carefully and beautifully hand crafted and delicious . Every detail of the property was so well put together. The original pieces of the historic building were well preserved and the details of the newer parts of the house complimented the original architecture and design. Amy did a great job in refurbishing and conserving the original style of the building. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. The bathrooms had a lot of space and were designed with top quality fixtures. We will definitely come back to this place! Thank you Dora and Amy for a memorable experience!"
"Just back from the gem show in Tucson. Lucky enough to snag a room at this wonderful new Inn. Tucked into a residential neighborhood, close to downtown, The Armory Park Inn fully exceeded our expectations. Once inside the front door you will be wowed by the decor, thoughtful and beautifully done, the rooms...super comfortable and quiet, the food...home made and fantastic, the sitting area...perfectly thought out and the hospitality...beautifully executed by owner Amy and Manager Dora. This is very much like staying in your interior designer/friend's vacation house. Amy has thought of everything, including the world's quietest hairdryers! We've stayed at the big resorts in tucson, as well as the hotels in town with tired rooms and crazy prices. This spot will knock your socks off."
