Hotel Congress's Cup Cafe is an awesome spot for breakfast that's chill on weekdays, though weekends have a see-and-be-seen vibe. Try the baked eggs with leeks, ham, and Gruyère or vanilla battered challah French toast.

I love Congress – I love making the trip down to Downtown Tucson to have a cup of coffee at the cafe, and/or sit outside on the patio and remember why I love Tucson. I never get tired of the retro decor, or the interesting people I meet there.

The ONLY thing keeping me from giving the very highest ranking is the average service from the waitstaff. Usually really good, the last several visits have been a little disappointing in this regard - but, let's face it - that's not why I go there. Nostalgic and fun, the hotel is a little mecca of interesting things to see and experience. A favorite when I'm in town and need a bite to eat, and a little atmosphere.

best birthday ever – This place is right out of the 1920's you have to understand yes there is no ac but there is evaporitive cooling. We went to sleep there after a night of partying in tuscons bar district of 4th ave, during the last week of July which was hot but not untolerable. The bed was nice the nostalgia of the place was sooooo cool. also when you stay there you get into the bars aka "club congress" for free. My advice is take your significant other and make a weekend of it.

Are you kidding me? – If you like scrap, no decent bedding, and smoke in your room - this is your place. We got there and thought somebody stole the A/C and TV. Oh, wait. There is NO A/C, TV or real phone. This place may be so-called historic, but I say, forget about it. We went in to our so-called room and left right then and there. This place is terrible!!!!

Vintage bohemian style at a landmark, railroad stop hotel. – The Scene
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.

The Details
Vintage and noir influences can be seen in the antiquated but functional pre-WWII switchboard and in guest room decor 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 Cafe serves fusion cuisine in a recently restored dining room, and across the street is another popular Tucson music venue, The Rialto Theater.

I just wasn't coo enough – I thought I would have a great time, but instead I was snubbed. Everyone looked at me like I was invading their secret club house. I hated it ! I will never stay there again!
