Hotel Congress Hotel Review

: This is urban tourism, Tucson-style, at its most bohemian and funky, a classic experience located just across the street from the Southern Pacific railroad tracks and at the center of the downtown nightlife district. The hotel was built in 1919 and was the temporary residence for the notorious Dillinger gang, until it caught fire and the firemen uncovered luggage containing $20,000 in loot---needless to say, this led to the arrest of the notorious outlaws. More recently, celebrated guests drawn to its spirited historic atmosphere have included Sharon Stone and Goldie Hawn. Vintage and noir influences can be seen in the antiquated but functional pre-WWII switchboard and in guest room décor such as old radios (they work), iron beds and stand alone tubs. The trains still pass by, and the on-site Club Congress brings in a steady stream of national and international music acts. The Cup Café serves fusion cuisine in a recently restored dining room, and across the street is another popular Tucson music venue, The Rialto Theater.
