HSL Properties modernizes Tucson Airport hotel

HSL Properties announced that the row of hotels along Tucson Boulevard received a facelift, as the newly renovated Best Western Plus Hotel and Suites, Tucson International Airport completes a $3-million rebrand and renovation. Modern design elements and amenities were incorporated to the property’s lounge, pool, meeting, guestroom, dining and bar areas.

All 142 of the hotel’s guest rooms and suites were refurbished with new carpet, soft seating, furniture, digital A/C units and 42-inch flat-panel TVs. The hotel’s 5,000 square feet of meeting and banquet spaces were refreshed with new window treatments, ceilings, banquet chairs and tables. The restaurant and bar were rejuvenated, their antique theme replaced with a new, updated atmosphere. The fitness center now features entirely new equipment, with cardio and weight-training facilities. In addition, the pool and spa area were resurfaced and feature new custom tile decking and lounge furniture. The pool and courtyard were redesigned to give guests special gathering areas.

HSL Properties, along with its affiliates, owns four hotels and more than 42 apartment communities in Arizona. Formed in 1975, the company owns and operates more than 11,000 apartment units in 42 apartment communities and has become the single largest apartment owner in Southern Arizona.
