“Love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

The promise of privacy, quiet and sunshine lives on at the Arizona Inn. Getting ready to check out of this lovely hotel, and we could not have had a better experience. The staff is friendly and very helpful. We ate in the luxury dinning room as well as poolside. The wait staff works extremely hard to serve it's guests. Kudos to Tom, Patrick, and Andrew for a dinner to remember. The diver scallops were to die for. Highly recommend

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.

Room Tip: Look at the layout of the rooms online and choose the bed size and room location carefully.

This is a quiet oasis in the heart of the city. Because of the acreage, you don't realize that you are in midtown. It is an historic hotel/resort run by the Greenway family since 1930. If you love casual splendor then this Spanish/southwest style resort will appeal to you. The food in the restaurant was good quality.

I was invited out to Tucson to give a lecture. My wife and I figured we'd turn it into a weekend. The sponsors made arrangements at the Arizona Inn. We figured it'd be nice, but lots of places are nice. It was so much more than lots of places, so much more than nice. Unique in its style of hospitality, incredibly relaxing, breakfast hearty enough to hike for three hours in Sabino Canyon, dinner the next night combined tasty and creative dishes/superb wine/courteous service (and a great bar/lounge for a nightcap). Our room was spacious, with gas fireplace, ample sitting areas. No doubt you can find fancier palces, but few if any as special,

Where else can you find an amazing place like this? It's like being able to turn the clock back to genteel living, perfect service, exquisite grounds. Afternoon tea -- yes, sandwiches with the crusts cut off -- is a luxurious treat; breakfasts are ample and delicious. The rooms are large and lovely. No, the bathrooms are not large, but it's a small price to pay for the overall experience of being the guests in an extremely well-run country estate.

Room Tip: Make sure you have a private patio out back, rather than a porch in front, for the most privacy.

Elegant, beautifully maintained, well-appointed and service oriented, the Arizona Inn offers a relaxing respite from everyday life. The grounds are gorgeous and each room is uniquely decorated with varying amenities. We took two rooms -- one standard and one deluxe. The deluxe was large and came with a gas fireplace while the standard was very, very small. Although some of the old-world charm included old-money stuffiness, the hotel staff was by-and-large very responsive and helpful. The reasons for four stars instead of five are the following issues: the pillows rank as among some of the most uncomfortable we've every put our heads on; the breakfast crew struggled with attentiveness (tracking down someone for a coffee refill was an art); and the evening restaurant staff was inadequate. All-in-all, it was a nice place to stay.
