The Tuxon, a boutique hotel in the heart of Tucson, has joined Marriott International’s Design Hotels portfolio. The first-ever Design Hotels property in Arizona will debut in the summer of 2020, created by entrepreneurs Vishal Patel and Sunny Patel. FORS Architecture + Interiors handled the design.
The 112-room hotel features design and custom furnishings inspired by the region’s American, Mexican, and Native American roots, including rustic gray wood, saddled leather, and potted local succulents. The rooms are decorated with a playful collection of cheeky and contemporary artworks inspired by Arizona’s cowboy culture, desert landscape, and colorful textiles.
A focal point of the property will be its newly constructed Welcome Building, which will serve as the hotel’s social hub, attracting and entertaining guests with an indoor/outdoor bar, locally inspired food and beverages, live music, tastings, craft workshops, and more.
