Hilton Tucson East
Situated at 7600 E. Broadway, the property completed its planned $2 million facilities upgrade program. The hotel now offers guests refurbished guestrooms, renovated 15,000 square feet of meeting space and an updated Vistas’ Bar & Grille. Additionally, the hotel created a private dining room, installed Precor equipment in its fitness center and updated the pool, whirlpool and building exterior.
Café Ramey closed. It’s an odd location hidden from the street (southwest corner of Swan/Pima). It was the original location for Red Sky until moving into fancier digs.
