This was our 2nd trip to Tucson for a weekend get-a-away and 2nd trip back to JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort & Spa. We came with 2 other couples this time and again JW did not disappoint! We LOVE this hotel! The views are breathtaking, the large patio with fire pits and amazing views is relaxing, and the rooms are very nice. The 5:30 sunset tequila toast on the patio is such a cool experience too! I would have to say the very best part of this hotel is the masseuse's in the spa. Both times I have been here I got a massage and came out saying "That was the best massage of my life!". My 2 girlfriends said the same thing. We took advantage of a promotion they had where you get a $100 hotel credit, so we used it toward the spa. After the credit the massage was $50 out of pocket, not too bad for an excellent massage and spa day. We also love that they have a Starbucks in the hotel as an alternative, as the breakfast in the restaurant is pretty pricey for breakfast (about $50 for 2 people).
One (-) about this hotel is it is far from 4th street/college area, so you have to cab it to go anywhere. Both trips we asked for a "cab" and they brought a town car. We didn't want a town car ($35 one way to 4th street), we wanted a Cab to save money. If you want a cab, be very specific and say "Not a towncar, I want a Cab"....otherwise if you just ask for a cab, they bring you a towncar.
