The Tuxon Hotel
The Tuxon, A Modern Boutique Hotel, Named The First Design Hotels™ Property In Arizona
Scheduled for Summer 2020 – 112 Rooms
The Tuxon joins the Design Hotels™ network of the world's most sophisticated hospitality brands with properties that span a wide variety of fascinating locales - from world capitals and mountaintops to off-the-beaten-path escapes. As a Design Hotels™ destination, The Tuxon will tap into an engaged community of travelers who seek original, inspiring experiences in new and intriguing places.
Each year, more than 400 hotels apply to become members of the Design Hotels™ portfolio. Only five percent are approved, and the chosen few are recognized for demonstrating "a passion for cultural authenticity and genuine hospitality that is enhanced by thought-provoking design and architecture."
Situated near Sentinel Peak - in an area known as the "birthplace of Tucson" - The Tuxon provides an ideal balance between the vibrancy of the city's thriving downtown and the natural beauty of its surrounding desertscape, which includes hundreds of miles of hiking and bicycle trails. By day, The Tuxon is a gathering place for adventure seekers and culture-loving vacationers. By night, the hotel's pool scene serves as a relaxed, sociable setting for cocktails and conversation. One of the property's most alluring features will be its newly constructed Welcome Building, which will serve as the hotel's social hub, attracting and entertaining guests with an indoor/outdoor bar, locally-inspired food and beverages, live music, tastings, craft workshops, and much more.
The hotel's 112 rooms feature design and custom furnishings inspired by the region's American, Mexican, and Native American roots, including rustic grey wood, saddled leather, and potted local succulents. The rooms are decorated with a playful collection of cheeky and contemporary artworks inspired by Arizona's cowboy culture, desert landscape, and colorful textiles. Modern amenities include walk-in rain showers, 1GB fiber internet, 50" UHD TVs with casting capabilities, and curated minibars. In addition, The Tuxon's technology-forward check-in process allows guests to curate the experience they desire, whether it's checking in through their mobile phones only, or through a socially distancing in-person interaction.
