When is check-in?

Festival check-in will begin on Wednesday, August 7th from 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm in the Living Room.

If you are unable to come the day before, please arrive 30 minutes before the expected start time of your first scheduled event.

How do I get around?

enterprise_234x60The hotel has two great restaurants and while we are close to many other amenities you may want a rental car. If you do plan on booking a rental car we suggest Enterprise as we have been renting 15-passenger vans from them for our field trips every year of the festival. You will not be disappointed by their great service and price.

Where do I eat?

A breakfast buffet (for Doubletree guests only) is served from 6:30 to 9:00am. Hotel guests who are departing on birding field trips before normal breakfast hours may opt to pick up an “Early Birder Breakfast To Go” at the front desk. Arrangements must be made with the Doubletree Front Desk by 9:00pm the night before.

The Cactus Rose Restaurant at the Doubletree serves excellent food and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Dine indoors or fireside, outdoors on the patio. Also at the Doubletree, hanging out at the Javelina Cantina is a longstanding Tucson tradition. This favorite “watering hole” offers delicious, contemporary Southwestern cuisine in a fun setting. Whether you join us for one of Tucson’s best Margaritas and a quick appetizer, or a delicious dinner on our covered patio, you’ll enjoy our delicious offerings and friendly service. The Javelina Cantina is open 2pm – 11pm on weekdays and 11am – 11pm on weekends. Registrants for the Saturday evening banquet will receive dinner as a part of the program.

There are many excellent restaurants that serve a variety of cuisines within a short distance of the hotel, near the El Con Mall or in downtown Tucson.
