I held a two day conference here and all that I can say is OUTSTANDING!!! The staff was very helpful, the food was excellent and the entire hotel was extremely clean the rooms spacious and comfortable. I did not go into the casino so I cannot comment on that. Everything else top rate.

My son just turned 21, we got two rooms for two days. He got a " diamond rewards card" that's supposed to give a new card holder up to $500 in free play. He got $2. Come on thats just lame. Forget about 24 hour room service (food). They do have some stuff but you can't even get that all... More

For one, make sure that you are making a reservation at the correct casino; I was thinking Casino del Sol instead of Desert Diamond. So that was my mistake, but it made for a disappointing getaway. My husband and I wanted to enjoy some pool time before going to the casino in the evening, but the pool was very disappointing.... More

We have enjoyed the Desert Diamond Hotel & Casino for 20 years, well before it was remodeled and the hotel added. It's very much a "locals" casino and very upbeat and fun. Unfortunately, because it is upbeat and fun, it is often quite crowded. I generally win and truly win lots at this casino. The hotel is comfortable and we... More

I went to a conference there. Because it was at a casino with a live poker room, my husband came with me. We enjoyed ourselves together & separately. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, before we arrived & while there. They serve a generous complimentary hot breakfast. There pool area is very comfortable. My 1 suggestion would be better...

We heard about the Tribute to veteran's and thought it would be nice to stay at a place that honors the military as my hubby is Retired Army. 100% combat disabled. We were here last year also and told us then that there were no rooms available. We figured we would give it another try. Again we were told no... More

Thank you, Desert Diamond, for extending the "Tribute Card" offer to Veterans. A friend told me about the promotion so I stopped by and signed up. The Tribute Card gives Veterans one free night per month for a year. Since the hotel is less than three miles from Tucson International Airport, it is a good deal for those nights before... More

We were very disappointed with our stay here! Thank God it was only for 1 night! It's our first time in Tuscon and I think it left us with a bad taste in our mouth. Especially after we just visited Scottsdale, Tempe, and Phoenix. The best part of the hotel was the pool area. It was actually nice. The elevators... More

Paying full rate for a room like this now days its not worth it! Its outrages how even if you are silver level or higher the rate is over $100 is most days. When the room is complimented or you get it for a discounted rate it changes but still.... cleaning is becoming poorly and costumer service is not as... More
