I was given an upgrade since I've stayed there prior. The rooms are always clean and well maintained. The bed, linens, and pillows are really comfortable. And I appreciated that there was a fridge in my room. We enjoyed the jacuzzi the evening I arrived, and relaxed by the pool the next day. It's a gem and I would definitely... More

We stayed 2 nights and got this hotel on "hot wire" deal. So it was at a good rate. For this reason I cannot complain too much about the room. But it was clearly a room that had not been updated. The room was a ground floor at the back. No view except of a group of planters with dead... More

We stay only for a night when we got stuck at Tucson. We were surprised at how well the hotel is maintained and how HUGE and pretty the rooms are. Everything has an earthy feel to it. The pool was pretty nice, too. We are planning on going back for a weekend stay.

We wanted a nice hotel in the center of the city, not in the foothills. This hotel not only met that need, but exceeded expectations, especially noteworthy was a helpful, friendly and very knowledgeable staff. We stayed in a recently renovated room, with an updated bathroom, a large, comfortable king bed, and a working fireplace (which we used for two... More

A large group of us visited April 2014 for 5 nights, and it was such a wonderful, accommodating, and serene hotel. The grounds were impeccable, the rooms are large and comfortable, the food at every meal was exquisite, and the staff so friendly and helpful. We will definitely book a stay again at this wonderful boutique hotel!

Loved our stay here. The room was large, clean, and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. The food at the resaurant was wonderful, and they were more than willing to make changes and be accommodating. Loved the outdoor area by the restaurant, but unfortunately, we were only able to use it once due to cold and rain; however, that... More

In my book, 5 stars means perfect or very close to that. The only thing I found wrong with this hotel was the stain on the carpet where it looked like someone had spilled some coffee. The room was large and spacious. We spent our early mornings sipping coffee on our patio and our evenings sipping wine there as well.... More

This is a nicely and compactly laid out set of accommodations in Tuscon. It is, therefore, not far from other activities. Nice green spaces, a few small water features. I felt as though I was secluded from the Tuscon that was right outside the walls. The restuarant is about average.
