Royal Elizabeth Bed and Breakfast Inn
Proud to be among the top 5 urban B&Bs in the nation as reported by USA Today and distinguished as "Where to Stay" in Tucson by The Wall Street Journal.
We hear it all the time: “You guys have thought of everything.” Nearly 7,000 guests have so far experienced the history, luxury and personal service that define the Royal Elizabeth. Flip through our pages of guest reviews on TripAdvisor and you’ll quickly uncover a theme—one of exceeded expectations. Your first visit to The Liz will be truly memorable. Ours is a place you will come back to again and again.
Your stay at the Royal Elizabeth—whether for one night or for an extended stay—is designed to be a delightful experience of our uniquely beautiful historic home; an introduction to the abundant colors and flavors of Tucson culture and an offering of something enriching and enchanting for yourself and those with whom you are traveling.
As owners and innkeepers, we pride ourselves in our sharp attention to detail; our priority of maintaining clean, beautiful and peaceful surroundings; our thoughtfully-prepared and beautifully-presented gourmet breakfasts and our expertly-personal level of individual service. These cornerstones will mark the foundation of your guest experience with us and, along with many other quality touches you’ll notice, will raise your standard for overnight accommodations.
The types and quality of guest amenities at The Liz also go far beyond what you have likely encountered at other bed and breakfasts, inns, boutique hotels, and even many fine hotels and resorts. Guest room accommodations at the Royal Elizabeth are absolutely exquisite. There are six options from which to select. Each varies in size, décor and configuration to meet the preferences of your individual tastes and the needs of your particular visit. All of our guest accommodations, regardless of size, come equipped with the same package of technological and service amenities.
While bearing the names of family members of homeowners past, our rooms are not ‘themed’. Rather, each guest room is designed to be a unique environment created with the use of different periods of antique furnishings, artwork, draperies, wallpaper and bold Victorian colors. We must assure you, too, that these aren’t “frilly” Victorian rooms. The solid adobe construction, towering fir columns and palatial wood floors actually blend seamlessly with Victorian whimsy to create a more masculine architectural feel throughout the house. And, while our uncommonly large guest rooms each range in size between 450 and 650 square feet, tall windows, transoms, crown molding and 17-foot ceilings make each space feel even larger and more inviting.
We also promise to delight you each and every morning with a deliciously-memorable two-course gourmet breakfast. We stray far from the often-expected bacon-and-egg breakfast and meals heavy with starchy breads and pastries. On the contrary, we commit to a menu driven by diverse, fresh, healthy and creative ingredients—thoughtfully prepared and artfully presented.
Whether you stay with us two days or two weeks, we try our best to be sure that no breakfast items are repeated during your stay. This means the longer you stay, the more tantalizing appetizers, entrees, juice blends and accompaniments you will experience—yet another reason to make the Royal Elizabeth your second home in Tucson. We, of course, will cater to specific dietary or taste requirements including vegetarian, vegan, diabetic, low-carb and special breakfasts for younger children. Please talk with us by phone in advance of your arrival so that we anticipate and have a good sense of your individual needs.
And though we set a beautiful formal table and the dining parlor presents an elegant atmosphere, nothing is a greater compliment to us than to have our guests come to breakfast in their PJs, hair undone or in their bare feet. Feeling at home enough to be casual and comfortable at breakfast is what it’s all about.
