The heat of the summer can be a real let-down, driving everyone inside for months—but one of the best things about being in Arizona in the summertime are the discounts you can snag on hotel rooms. 

Since the summer months tend to be slow for business, many hotels will offer great deals. Whether you’re looking to do a quick getaway to Tucson or just stay here and get out of the house, here are five hotels in the city where you can enjoy some time to yourself.
