The Arizona Inn is an historic highlight in Tucson. It is completely charming at any time of year. The Christmas tree in December is a huge attraction, but for my book, nothing can compare with supper on the porch of the Audubon Bar just as the rains commence in late June through August. The garden is lovely, the food dependably... More

Excellent meal outside the bar with exceptionally attentive staff and the chicken salad with fruit was delicious with a artful presentation.

A step back into the past. I nice friendly piano player was definitely the high light. Casual atmosphere. Had a cappuccino and desert platter. The deserts were delicious. The cappuccino passable. It is always nice to visit the hotel and walk the grounds. The library is wonderful. A lot of charm abounds.

This was a quiet, quaint and old hotel restaurant in the middle of Tucson. The food was... ok. But the atmosphere was great. Nostalgic, well maintained hotel and gardens. Good service. A bit pricey, but worth it. This isn’t your hurry-up-and-eat and get back to the office kind of place. Good for a special occasion with friends or family.

The bar serves all meals and has both inside and outside tables. Not large seating areas in either; but that makes it more personal. Although mostly covered and some umbrellas, outside can be hot particularly in the morning when the sun is low and direct. Inside provides comfortable lounge areas for drinks and food service, plus some regular tables. They... More

The service is always impeccable, the food is wonderfully prepared and they make you feel special. We love the piano bar, the drinks are always made with class and the food menu changes regularly.

We went here after a long cross-country day. It was relaxing, the food was up to standards and so was the service. The bar opens up to some of the inn's lovely gardens. (Generation alert: when we were there in the early evening, the crowd was generally 50+. No problem here, but if you are younger, don't expect a happening... More

A leisurely breakfast on the patio is okay. But don't come expecting quick service so you can get out and about.

I wish Tripadvisor had something between average and very good, that's where I would place arizona inn. I dine here regularly for business (U of AZ) and it is always good (not average and not very good). I had lunch at AZ Inn yesterday in fact and had the chicken Cesar salad. Again, good, not great. The service was good,... More
