“Beautiful, quaint, romantic Southwestern inn.”

Beautiful grounds and old Southwestern style. Romantic and very restful. Restaurant is fantastic! Beautifully appointed and maintained main building, halls, high ceilings, restaurant. Always love staying or eating here.

The Arizona Inn has so much the resorts don't, like history, ice cream by the pool and impeccable service. Not to mention the lovely lavender soap in the bathroom. I've never been disappointed staying there.

We have visited the Inn many times over the years. It is a 1930's hotel frequented by the rich and famous, but is much more than that. We have had a family photo shoot there on the amazingly beautiful grounds, easter and special occasion meals and most recently a visit to just check it out and have a beer at the bar while I waited for my wife visiting friends at the nearby University Medical Center. Located on Elm, just off of Campbell, it is not on a major street and one story so does not tower over the neighborhood. To be at the Inn is to step back in time when detail was important and peace and quiet honored, thus the huge library to sit back and relax with a good read. If you appreciate the past, and enjoy a truly first class stay, this is the place.

Yes, it's expensive, and it's worth it if you value the feeling of being at a real oasis in Tucson filled with history and hospitality. The grounds are immaculate (it's easier if you don't think about how much water it takes to keep it that way - eeek! Maybe some of the grassy areas could be xeriscaped without sacrificing all of the grass? Just a thought) and lovely. The pool area is just gorgeous (don't miss the sauna if you are there in the winter months) - had a superb Cobb salad there for lunch. The main dining room is beautifully proportioned, so it's both large and intimate, and the food is very good. Our superior room was charming, with a tall four poster bed and marble topped end tables. We enjoyed watching several of the classic DVD's (ask at the desk) featuring famous stars who stayed at the resort in years gone by. While the bathroom was tiny, it's functionality was saved by a huge medicine chest which was mirrored front, interior, and on the back of the door, and which enabled us to get ready in the absence of a counter-top. The bed was pleasantly firm but could benefit from a memory foam topper. Loved the sundae bar although we only indulged in it one night. Staff were very professional (without being stuffy) and helpful. We managed to forget our electric toothbrush and we were promptly brought two manual toothbrushes for our use. So many nice touches, like the fresh flower in the bathroom, the Starbucks coffee, the turndown service with chocolate. It was just great and we would stay there again in a heartbeat! Only wish our trip had been longer! Had an early dinner in the bar, enjoyed the pianist playing the classics. Charming!

Room Tip: Room 128 was spacious and charming, and we only heard noise from an adjoining room once. First night...

We stayed at the Arizona Inn for 9 nights in April/May.
It was our second stay as we enjoyed staying here on a previous visit to Tucson.
This was one of few inns we have stayed where we felt confident of getting a relaxing quiet stay for 9 nights and we were not disappointed.
The gardens are lovely and the Inn has an air of quality and peace which made for a restful stay.
The staff are polite and helpful; if you can afford it then this really is the only place to stay when visiting Tucson.

We took a four day respite here , mid week, during the transitional season, and I would return tomorrow.

The grounds are expansive, close to town and in the midst of a residential neighbor hood. The whole effect is one of moving back in time. Each room is a bit different spacious, but for smallish bathrooms...a left over for times past. The compensation is a wet bar, with a water stocked fridge, granite counter, and coffee pot with loads of Starbucks' dark. And a seemingly endless supply of dark chocolate mints. The woman who tended our room, the bartender, and the doorman knew us by sight by the end of the first day. In all, we were treated with grace and no pretentiousness.

Several breakfast options are possible, but while we tried the dining room the first day, we opted for our terrace, with the NYT from the door and the robes from the closet. From call to coffee, ten minutes. After five home made ice cream sundaes at the pool at the end of a garden walk.

We had privacy and mobility. The car lot is across the side street, and I had a host of offers for help from the lobby, I could move on my own with ease. I could go on; it was a perfect week, but my favorite part of all were the two turquoise, wooden screen doors in our room.

Room Tip: We upgraded to one with a first floor patio. It was well worth it. The effect is living in a garde...

an oasis in the city of tucson & a wonderful surprise for us,what a place the green of nature and the pink of the adobe makes for a concert of peaceful pleasure.
the nice people that work wether gardeners,waiters,or reception staff are all wonderful .
as for the beautiful gardens you have to walk around them what a wonder and color you get to think of perfection of sight &sound from the numbers of birds and butterfly's .
the food from breakfast by the pool just delicious and the setting perfect.
lunch on the terrace by the main building so good and nice.
dinner in the main restaurant so full of flavor.
the room we had was so big and comfortable with two private terraces we are only sorry we did not stay longer,next time we will,a place so full of history ,but so discreet and private.
you have to visit the gift shop ,full of wonderful things & the lady in it so helpful

Room Tip: all is perfect
