The Rio Nuevo development district is moving ahead on five (yes five!) hotel projects that will add almost 600 additional rooms in Downtown Tucson.
One is on the Tucson Convention Center Campus and is a Hilton branded hotel (170 rooms) being developed by Caliber Co.
Another is a dual-branded hotel by Cathedral Square. It backs up to the Scottish Rite Temple, on a lot on Stone Avenue, across from the Cathedral and about a block and a half from the Tucson Convention Center, a Dallas-based hotel developer is going to build a combination hotel, part Hampton Inn and part Home2 Suites. Both of these are also Hilton branded hotels being developed by Faywood Development with 177-rooms (75-rooms Hampton Inn and 102-rooms Home 2 Suites).
