Acclaim for Tucson Radisson

Tucson Radisson Pool, originally uploaded by Shirley Buxton.
As we stepped from our room onto the landing, this was our night view at the Tucson Radisson where we stayed three nights last week. It was a splendid hotel in other ways:
  • They supplied seamless internet service at no charge.
In my experience this is unusual for fine hotels. It seems strange, but cheaper lodging places seem more likely to provide free internet service.
Also very neat was a notice on the desk that down in the cafe they had laptops that any guest could use. Had my own so I didn’t need to check that out. It seems they also offer free copy services.
  • They served a spectacular breakfast buffet at no charge. (well, no additional charge. I’m sure we paid for it.)
Jerry and I both agree we have never eaten finer breakfasts anywhere. Presented on the bountiful buffet each morning were: eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits and gravy, toast, quick bread loaves (banana, blueberry, oatmeal) , waffles, french toast, freshly baked muffins, oatmeal, fresh fruit, yogurt, milk, dry cereal, orange juice and outstanding coffee.
  • Our room was a two-room suite. The living room area had a couch, chairs, desk, fridge and a microwave.
  • Our mattress was a Select Comfort. Down comforter, lush pillows.
  • Parking was convenient and free.
  • The glass elevators took in the scene pictured here.
  • The prices of the rooms were reasonable.
  • The grounds were splendid.
Going to Tucson? Try the Radisson on Speedway. It’s a great place.

Still full of life and ready to be on the move, Shirley at 83 years old feels blessed to have lots of energy and to be full of optimism. She was married to Jerry for 63 years, and grieves yet at his death in August of 2019. They have 4 children, 13 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren...all beautiful and highly intelligent--of course. :)

Good morning, LINDA and JANA–

Tucson is a beautiful city, but before you call a travel agent or zip over there in your cars, let me warn you of one problem: the traffic is horrendous. I believe they have only have one freeway that skirts the city–no crosstown freeways. They’re doing major road work now, though, so things will probably improve.

When we arrived in town, we had to exit several miles before Speedway and use a frontage road, because many of the freeway exits are barricaded.

Oh, well, no place is quite perfect…except Heaven, of course.


It looks like a wonderful place to stay. There is nothing quite like getting to your destination and the accomodation are NICE! It just makes you rest better when it’s “top-notch”.


Good evening–

DAVID–I believe you. There are many big city hotels where $20.00 daily and more for parking are not uncommon.

VON DE LEIGH–We had good weather in Tucson–just a little bit of rain.

A few hours ago I spoke with our neighbor in Crestline who says we have received 9 inches of rain in the last couple of days. It was snowing as we spoke–nothing like they’re getting in the Sierra’s, though. Our governor has declared a state of emergency, I believe.

How’s the weather in Big Bear, DAVID?
