Tips to book your accommodations
Before you will book accommodations, you should know the ideal area, safety, and price trends.
Tucson Gem Show will take place around the city such as the downtown area, the south area, and the north area.
The main area is the downtown area, but some huge shows take place south area. We recommend you should book your hotel near your convenient place to go to shows.
Generally, the most convenient place is the downtown area, but any accommodations around the downtown area will be booked by vendors and guests quickly.
For example, when you will go to the downtown area from the south area (near the airport) by drive or take shuttle buses, you may take 20-30 minutes.
Generally, Tucson is a safe and peaceful place. However, sometimes crimes such as shooting, car thief, and theft happen around the city.
If you consider your safety, you should avoid the south area, motels, cheap accommodations.
It is said that the north area (upper the River Rd) is safer than the downtown and the south area.
Here is Tucson Crime Mapping. (type Tucson and search)

The average cost of hotels is $160-$250 per night. Motel or Airbnb is a bit cheaper than hotels.
If your priority is the cost, you should focus on a motel or Airbnb. If you consider safety, convenience, comfortability, and activities, you should use hotels.
