Lunchtime in Tucson

The hotel has undergone many changes since we were there last year, and one fantastic one is Alloro, the completely renovated restaurant/lounge on the second floor. The new chef has created a lunch menu for us that takes into account we need something speedy, and we want a variety of things to choose from since we are going to be hunkered down there for many days in a row. We’re working on the final version of the lunch menu right now and will email and post it as soon as we can; but, in the meantime, to give you an example of what the Hilton offered last year, click on this link –

In addition, the Mercato, located on the first floor near the entrance to the hotel, stocks grab and go items – snack items, like muffins, salami/cheese, hummus, chips, candy, beverages, etc. (yes – even Starbucks!). If you’re looking for something speedy, check out the Mercato.

If you’d like to leave the hotel, there are several fast food restaurants nearby. Culvers, In-N-Out, Raising Canes, Whataburger, Wendy’s, and Jack-in-the-Box. You can find them on a Yelp map here.

And, remember, the hotel shuttle can take you where you need to go within a 3-mile radius of the hotel. A really nice service for us! Check in with the bellmen, and they will arrange your transportation.

We can help you with suggestions and/or directions if you need. Just text either Barb or Erin, and we’ll help you out!
