For the past 40 years we have stayed several times at the Arizona Inn. Needless to say it has changed over those years, as we have. The Inn has actually maintained its beauty while I can't say the same for us. It is an oasis in the city with a nostalgic ambiance. I am not certain how the restaurant is now, when we were there a year ago it was good, however there are numerous wonderful restaurants in Tucson.
If you want to sample the 'old days' in Tucson - not the Old West, but the 1940's through 1960's this is absolutely the place for you. Locals from the neighborhood come to spend a relaxing weekend! There are few children on the times we've been there.
