About

Catalina Park Inn Bed and Breakfast has been welcoming guests to Tucson under the care of the original owners Mark Hall and Paul Richard since 1994. This lovely home, circa 1927, is an art and antiques filled sanctuary yet yet exudes a low-key and casual atmosphere. Extensive desert gardens created by your hosts surround the property and attract a variety of birds. Innkeeper Mark Hall has formal culinary arts training and has been in the hospitality business since 1983. Each morning begins with a glorious breakfast and assertively brewed coffee. The inn is ideally located within walking distance of the University of Arizona and the Fourth Avenue and Congress Street Entertainment Districts that feature Tucson's best live theater and music venues. Just three blocks to Tucson's new Sunlink streetcar line!

Historic Charm, Delicious Food, Great Hospitality

We had a wonderful 2 night stay at the Catalina Park Inn during January 2013. We stayed in the Bower Room which is in the guest house behind the main Inn. Our room was large and (yes!) charming. The bed, pillows, and linens were top notch. There is also a lovely yard with desert landscaping and numerous fountains. We borrowed movies from the Inn's collection to watch at night which was a nice additional feature of our stay. Our hosts, Paul and Mark, were very nice and shared lots of useful information about the Tucson area. Mark's breakfasts were really delicious and the conversation around the table was lively. The Inn and guesthouse are from the 1920's and beautifully maintained. I would definitely recommend a stay at the Catalina Park Inn!


Fabulous Stay!

What a great experience visiting Tucson and staying at the Catalina Park Inn. We stayed in the cottage #1 room...awesome bed, incredibly clean, private, and super comfortable! The property grounds are so well done. We just wish we could have spent more time there! We would highly recommend and this will be our spot when we come back to Tucson. The innkeepers were very welcoming, super friendly, and made great suggestions while we were in town. Overall...A+ experience!

We had a wonderful experience, wonderful breakfasts in a warm and inviting atmosphere, the bed was more comfortable then my own bed at home!! Good location to the University of Arizona and shops/restaurants. We would highly recommend Catalina in the Park.


Gold standard-an opinion from an Australian opal prospector

4.0 on February 11, 2012

The Catalina Park Inn hosts, Mark and Paul, extol all the attributes of hospitality that make for an exceptionally enjoyable and memorable Tucson experience, particularly for an overseas visitor from the Antipodes. Mine hosts were exceptionally helpful during my three night stay. The breakfasts were five star, the accommodation homely and the location convenient and secure. Gratefully, P.

We take a yearly trip to Tucson for a week of golf and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else. Great location, wonderful rooms, delicious food, and helpful inkeepers who couldn't do more to make the trip memorable. The inn is within walking distance to some fun little restaurants and great shops. Outstanding golf and hiking can be found a short drive away. We look forward to our next trip to Tucson and the Catalina Park Inn.


We'll be back!

Catalina Park Inn is not only beautiful and tranquil, but its hosts, Paul and Mark rounded out just what the quintessential Bed and Breakfast should be. They were very knowledgeable about the art scene and activities in Tucson and the surrounding area, which is wonderful when your time is limited as ours was on this trip, and very gracious in ensuring our every need was met. The rooms were all well appointed (what a treat to stay in an historical home as well decorated and maintained as this one!) and allowed for a very good night's sleep. Breakfast was as scrumptious as its presentation. Our only disappointment was that we were not staying longer, but we'll make up for that on our next visit.


This is a great place to stay!

We stayed here for 3 nights. Paul and Mark are great hosts. Our room was very nice and comfy, and the public areas are also very nice. The breakfast was superb each day.
