The Leo Kent Now Open in Tucson

Tucson welcomed a new gem to its downtown with the opening of The Leo Kent, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel. This exquisite urban boutique hotel pays homage to Tucson’s vibrant spirit and unique history, offering guests a truly immersive experience in the desertscape.

Situated inside Tucson‘s iconic One South Church building, The Leo Kent offers 145 luxurious guest rooms spread across nine floors. The hotel’s architecture, designed by Nelsen Partners, is a celebration of Tucson’s soul and history. The modern Southwestern design embraces an array of indoor plants and artwork inspired by local fauna and landscapes, featuring iconic elements like Arizona buttes, saguaro cacti, roadrunners and Tucson’s skyline. 


Ensuring the utmost comfort for every guest, The Leo Kent offers luxe amenities like the on-site fitness center, high-speed Wi-Fi, plush bedding and spacious work areas. Each guest space is adorned with floor-to-ceiling windows, flooding the rooms with natural light and presenting picturesque city views. When guests aren’t enjoying the state-of-the-art fitness center, they can easily explore the city using the nearby SunLink Streetcar Route, connecting them to Downtown Tucson and the University of Arizona. The hotel’s prime location puts popular attractions such as the Arizona State Museum, Fox Tucson Theatre, retail stores, bars and restaurants within easy reach.


The highlight of The Leo Kent is undoubtedly St. Cruz, a chef-driven restaurant and bar open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Inspired by the Santa Cruz River, a life source for Tucson, the restaurant offers Southwestern-inspired flavors crafted by Tucson native, Chef Devin Pinto. The menu proudly showcases an array of locally-sourced ingredients, while the bar boasts a selection of regional beers, wines and spirits, adding a distinctive touch to the dining experience. For added convenience, an onsite market can be found in the lobby, ensuring travelers find anything they might have left behind, including medicine, toiletries, grab-and-go snacks and sips.


Rates at this charming boutique hotel begin at $185 per night for a standard guest space, making it an attractive choice for those seeking an exceptional stay in Tucson.
