Here are some alternative hotels located nearby (still too far to walk, but an easy trip by car):
We have not negotiated a conference rate at these hotels, so you would have to book as a regular guest.
- Hacienda del Sol Resort
- Westin La Paloma Resort
- Loews Ventana Canyon Resort
- Hampton Inn and Suites Tucson Mall
- La Posada Lodge and Casitas
- Best Western Innsuites Tucson Foothills Hotel & Suites
At the moment (mid-september) the last three hotels can be reserved for under $100 per night for the nights of the conference. The first three would likely be considerably more expensive.
