Spent our Anniversary Weekend at "The Liz" and did not want to leave. Innkeepers were so welcoming and delightful. Perfect location and walking distance to downtown, UA, restaurants, museums, and night life. I will definately be coming back soon. Wonderful experience!

A True Historic Gem

Entering the Royal Elizabeth is like stepping back in time. I spent hours just admiring the incredible detail and craftsmanship of the interior wood work. The decor harkens back to a by-gone era but the top-notch service and amenities keep you as comfortable as you would be in your own home. With close proximity to museums, parks and all that downtown Tucson has to offer it is truly a perfect place to stay. I cannot recommend the Royal Elizabeth enough - stay here and be amazed!!

Will Stay Again

Not only was the service outstanding, but the proximity of the B&B to all the restaurants and shopping made staying at The Royal Elizabeth my 1st choice. I can't wait to come back and visit!

The Royal Elizabeth B&B Inn is a hidden gem in downtown Tucson. Spectacular breakfast served at 8am by hospitable innkeepers who enjoy being there and making your stay as comfortable as possible.

I have never seen an Inn like this one ....

We stayed for two nights (in August 2011) and did not want to leave. The place is magical. The hosts were wonderful - they made dinner reservations for us, and gave us directions and details on a few attractions we wanted to see inc. Sabino Canyon and the Desert Museum. The breakfast was spectacular, a 2-course gourmet, we are used to more of a continental breakfast at B&B's. We lounged at the pool, they let us check-out late (and we arrived early). We will definitely be back.

Perfect get away

Such a wonderful gem situated in the middle of the up and coming downtown area. The Inn is grand and beautiful. The hospitality is fabulous. The food is incredible. We'll never stay anywhere else while in Tucson!!

Gorgeous inn!
