Just a block from downtown’s Temple of Music and Art, the Royal Elizabeth is an 1878 Victorian adobe mansion that features an unusual combination of architectural styles, making for a uniquely southwestern-style inn. The old home looks thoroughly unpretentious from the outside, but inside you’ll find beautiful woodwork and gorgeous Victorian-era antique furnishings. Guest rooms are as gorgeous as the public areas, with high ceilings, beautiful antiques, and hardwood floors; they all open off a large, high-ceilinged central hall. The immediate neighborhood has some charming territorial architecture mixed in with a few newish buildings; art galleries, the Tucson Museum of Art, hipster bars, and several good restaurants are within walking distance.
