Frequently Asked Questions
Travel, Hotel & Meals - Tucson
What airport should we fly into?
There are two options for getting your team into Tucson. The Tucson International Airport is 23 miles (approximately 30-40 minutes) from the hotel, or you can fly into the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, which is a 90-minute drive. Our recommendation is to price out both, as depending on your city of departure, you might find the less expensive airline ticket to be in and out of Phoenix (and the drive to Tucson is all highway and extremely easy).
Will we need a rental car?
Yes, you will need to have a rental car for your team. Tennis is played at three different venues (the Hilton El Conquistador Resort, the Oro Valley Community Center and the Tucson Racquet Club). Having your own transportation will be necessary.
Will all activities take place at the Hilton El Conquistador?
The main venue is the Hilton. Much of the tennis, as well as breakfasts, kick-off meeting, and an evening event will take place there.
What should we do for breakfast and lunch each day?
A breakfast buffet for two guests at the Hilton's Sundance Restaurant is included each day with the room rate. (If a third person is added to a room, the $25 fee will allow them to enjoy the buffet as well.) As another option, the hotel lounge/bar in the lobby serves Starbucks coffee and pastries every morning. For lunch, each facility that we will be playing at offers light (but limited) fare in a courtside café setting. In addition, the local nearby markets offer deli sandwiches, salads, and other lunchtime options.
Are there other options for sleeping arrangements at the Hilton?
Should you want more space for your team, consider looking into a King Casita Suite. These suites have microwaves and small refrigerators and offer a living room, dining room and pullout sofa for only $80 additional per night. Plus, you can have one or two double rooms connect to the suite, thus fitting your entire team into one area.
Are other hotels available?
There are many other hotels in Tucson. And although you can book your sleeping rooms at a different location, staying at the Hilton El Conquistador will allow you more opportunities to meet and interact with the other women participating in this event. Plus, it's a lovely hotel and there is a very good room rate negotiated for Meet Play Love Tennis attendees.
