We have stayed at many places in Tucson. Our son attends the University. This is by far, the BEST place we have been to in Tucson - and one of our top 5 overall places to stay!! First, the staff goes out of their way to make sure you are taken care and happy. From the front desk staff, pool staff, restaurant staff and housekeeping, you will never find anyone in a bad mood or without a smile!! They are so accommodating that we felt like we were the only ones staying here.
The grounds and gardens are outstanding - especially in the middle of Tucson. This is like an Oasis in the desert!! The minute you step foot onto the property, you feel like you have been transported into an exclusive resort with nothing around you - except that you are in the middle of bustling Tucson. There is croquet, ping pong, tennis and badminton courts for your use. All complimentary. The pool is awesome! There is a sauna in each of the bathrooms around the pool. All recently remodeled.
The main building has a library, gift shop and 2 restaurants and a bar. Again. the staff is so nice and accommodating that you want to just hang out for a while.
Our room was HUGE!! 2 queen beds, a sitting area, walk in closet and a full marble bathroom. All kept meticulously clean by the housekeeping staff. They would check our room at least 3 times a day to make sure we had towels, a full ice bucket and just generally picked up after us. We had a patio with lounge chairs and a table with 4 chairs. Great for breakfast in morning. Always delivered with linen and a smile from the room service staff.
As others have stated, the architecture is outstanding and there are many paths that run around the property. We found a grapefruit tree with ripe grapefruit - kinda sweet for an afternoon snack!!
The food is fantastic. We had breakfast, lunch and dinner here everyday. Now we did go out for dinner most nights, but dinner here is good if you must stay in.
Laying out around the pool, they offer you complimentary chips and salsa. They are always there with a cold glass of water with lemon as well. We did not have a bad or mediocre meal while we were here. Always outstanding!
I honestly cannot find one negative thing to say about the hotel. We will continue to stay only here when we are in Tucson. Why stay anywhere else when you have found perfection!!
