I was born and raised in Tucson and have stayed at almost all of the resorts in town, but when we booked a trip home for homecoming and found the living social deal for the lodge we were looking forward to trying it out and I loved it! It was our anniversary weekend and this was just the place for a little R&R in the midst of running around town seeing family and friends.
The midtown location is not as pretty as a resort in the foothills but they do an excellent job making the property feel secluded and we were so close to everything we wanted to do.
We stayed in the King Spa Suite and the room did not dissapoint. The fireplace was great on an unualsually chilly evening and the bath tub was awesome!
We took advantage of happy hour at the restaurant, which is a MUST. Get the Worlds Best Margarita, it was awesome. We also were so tired one night we just orderd food from the restaurant and went and picked it up to eat in our room and it was outstanding. We got the steak and the burger and everything was amazing.
My only constructive feedback would be to put a few bath mats in the bathroom or provide slippers. As the bathroom has the salito tiles they get very cold when its chilly out and laying towels on the floor dont really do the trick. I found myself hesitating to get out of bed to use the bathroom cause my feet would get too cold :)
I will now be using the Lodge as my "go-to" on my trips home every few months!
