“Oasis in the Desert”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

Stayed again at this outstanding resort during President's Week which included Valentines Day. This property is very special and is in complete harmony with the surrounding mountains. We have children attending the University of Arizona and have stayed in other hotels in Tucson, but this resort is far superior to any of its competition. The staff is very friendly and go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. The food is excellent and we highly recommend the Fying V restaurant. The Spa/Fitness center is wonderful and the two golf courses are championship quality. The views from the rooms in the front of the property are magnificent in the evening. We checked in Valentines Day and I called at the last minute to the in-house Florist, Ms. Kim, and she put together a spectacular floral arrangement that was waiting for us on arrival to the room. We look forward to returning over the Easter break.

Room Tip: Facing the front and the City of Tucson, preferably fourth floor.

I want to let this first class resort know how much I appreciated our stay. It filled and exceeded all of our expectations and desires for a relaxing, pleasant get-away. The grounds are immaculate and peaceful. Our room was beautiful, spotless and comfortable. Our view from the patio was perfect. Unfortunately, my husband was not feeling well at all so he couldn't join
me at the pool, but again every need was met and the pool and whirlpool were wonderful.
Upon being asked how my day was going I mentioned I was disappointed that my husband
was sick and had to be in the room, to our surprise room service delivered a plate of fruit and bottled waters with a note that they hoped he would feel better soon and the offer to be of any
further service if we needed them. I was extremely disappointed to have to cut our stay short
a day because of my husbands illness, but I easily give this resort 5 stars and hope to return
again for a FULL stay. Thank you for your great hospitality.
Almost forgot to recommend the hike that starts right from the adjoining parking lot. It is a
wonderful hike of the canyon. The colors, birds, etc. were outstanding!

I plan group events and recently had one of my groups at this property. It did not disappoint!
I was happy to hear many positive things from my group. The location is gorgeous, the golf course is excellent, there is a great hike (Ventana Canyon) on site, and the food is excellent. Especially at the Flying V. Rooms are spacious and comfortable, but I think if I were going to offer constructive criticism, I would say the bathrooms could be a bit brighter.

The staff at this hotel are friendlier than anywhere I've ever seen. This is a great place for families, couples or business because of its layout and all it has to offer. It is in the foothills, so note that if you want to go downtown you need a taxi or car because their shuttle does not go that far.

I went in a few days early and needed to use their salon services......just for the record they have a fabulous salon / spa staff. Dave, in particular, saved me.

Stayed here February 20-25. My wife and I have stayed here before and we were not disappointed this time either. First of all, Loews is a very welcoming place and the staff make you feel at home immediately upon your arrival. Staff acknowledge you when you pass them and offer help whenever they see you. It's a beautiful quiet resort with great views and the proximity to the ventana golf courses (Canyon and Mountain) makes it a must stay for anyone wanting to enjoy excellent golf. Additionally we ate breakfast a couple of times (buffet was excellent and reasonable) and dinner in the lounge area has the BEST burgers and margaritas! Also the resort is situated in an area where you can get to other restaurants easily should you want to. Do yourself a favor and give them a try!

The positives are many....... great location, staff, restaurants, pool, golf courses, and Sonora desert trail. We travelled with a pet and stayed at the property twice in the last couple of weeks. Very pet friendly, on both occasions a pet goody bag arrived within 5 minutes of settling in our rooms. Both rooms were virtually identical, and well being well appointed and clean they have meet their useful life in terms of styling and are due for an update (granted they were "pet friendly" rooms. Food within the property was a pleasant surprise........ definitely would return!

If you're a one stop stayer and want to check into the Loews you may enjoy it's location. We are very busy people and were hopping around to different parks and hiking trails each day, as well as restaurants all over town so for us staying there was probably a little less important and for that reason I rate it as fairly expensive. For 4 nights we paid $987.00. Which included a $20.00 resort fee which frankly just wasn't worth it. It provided you with internet, an hours use of tennis each day if coursts were available (frankly I never saw anyone play tennis at all so they were always available). You can self park so it doesn't pay for valet either. Now if you want to hike straight from the back of the hotel there's a fairly good hiking trail. It's a little more intense than some of them. Definitely you need to watch where you foot is being placed and not gaze around too much while walking or you'll trip and fall over the rocks. Pool was nice, didn't eat at restaurants as they were very pricey compared with very nice and neighboring restaurants that were available. Rooms were clean, maids did a good job. Tub is the biggest tub I've ever seen. Two full size people could sit side by side in it. Doesn't have any jets in it though so it's not a whirlpool tub. But if you were on a honeymoon you might enjoy it. Me I just kind of felt sorry for the maids that had to clean it because it probably felt to them like cleaning a small swimming pool. Ha! I will definitely go back to Tucson and if you're lifestyle demands a high end resort you will like this one, however again we're on the go people so most likely will stay somewhere cheaper since we do most things off-site anyway. Grounds were pretty though and their somewhat aided waterfall at the back of the walking path is pretty. Poolside bar had reasonablly priced drinks. It is pet friendly and as a pet owner I I think that's nice and then not. If I was to take my dog I'd think it nice, since I didn't you sometimes wonder if you should look around a bit and make sure you don't find any fleas or urine smells when you check into your room. Which by the way we never did so either pet friendly rooms are kept in another area or they are just that good at keeping things spotless. I do think the pet rooms were probably on the ends of the building which had walkout patios into grassy areas most likely. Didn't golf but if you did there's a pretty gold course with narrow fairways right at the resort. $149.00 daily rate before noon to play and $99.00 rate after 12:00. Visitors can only play one of the two courses however as the other is private country club. Didn't see all that many golfers on it.

Room Tip: We had ground floor desert/mountain view. I liked it because I'm very much into nature. Husban...

My wife and I have stayed here off and on for many years and each time we return, it's a special experience. We only spent one night as we were attending a golf tournament and were pleasantly surprised when given a room upgrade upon check-in! The lounge and bar area are comfortable and casual and the rooms very nice. It's just a nice place for a get-away that's close to home!

Room Tip: Stay away from rooms near an elevator or a maid's closet!
