“The Best Place to Stay in Tucson, Period.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

Our experience was nothing short of excellent in every way. My wife and I left our wedding reception for a night at Hacienda del Sol and were greeted by pleasant staff, an unexpected upgrade to a suite and a chilled bottle of champagne! We sat down to a fire to read our guest book, eat more cake and enjoy the remaining evening in a beautiful setting. The next morning we woke to a view that was nothing short of gorgeous. Warm rays of sunshine falling through the window on to the luxurious bed made it hard to leave. We felt at home. I can't say enough about the fine craftsmanship of the interior of our room or the excellent food at the famous grill! Enjoy your stay if you decide to book a room. I hope you do.

Room Tip: Best tip I could ever give is simple common sense. Be nice and you'll be treated nicely.

Congratulations on your recent wedding, I wish you a happy future together. Thank you for sharing part of your celebration with us. Your special night deserves to be as wonderful as possible, kudos to our staff for recognizing this and handling an upgrade and champagne. Sounds like you had one of our favorite suites # 4, this is in our recently remodeled section and the fine craftmanship you mention comes from high quality pieces brought in from Argentina. I hope we see you again on your 1 year anniversary, contact me anytime if I can assist with any arrangements. Regards

Booked an overnight stay just after New Year whilst visiting the nearby Biosphere, Missile Museum and PIMA 'Boneyard'. The glowing reviews of this hotel are right on target. I booked this hotel as I wanted to stay somewhere with history and somewhere that felt 'of the place' rather than just another perfectly faceless hotel that could be anywhere in the world. Our room was spacious with a lovely view of the mountains and was spotlessly clean. We dined in the restaurant and the staff were kind to reserve us a table by the window so we could enjoy the view. The food was imaginative, delicious and beautifully presented. However, it is really the staff that make the stay so special as they are welcoming and eager to help from the second you arrive. The staff in the restaurant are particularly good but we thank all the team for making our stay so special. I hope we will return one day.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 41, which is set apart from the main hotel, offering tranquility and glorious view...

Thank you for choosing the Hacienda to stay at during your city adventure. Looks like we fit in well with your other historical sight seeing stops which I hope you enjoyed. Glad you enjoyed Hacienda # 41, as your room tip suggests, the room does offer fantastic views and seclusion while being only seconds from the main buildings. We are only as good as our staff and it is wonderful to hear that from our housekeeping, front office and restaurant departments you recieved the top notch service guests deserve and expect. We look forward to hopefully hosting your next Southwest adventure. Regards

We stayed for three nights in a king room. The arrival experience was good as John described the facilities and delivered our luggage quickly to the room. What impressed us is how this property has managed to keep its solitude amongst the urban area that has grown up around it. John took us on a tour of the grounds and described in detail the various plants that are cared for on the grounds. The restaurant is fantastic. We ate there for every meal. The views at sunset from the dining room is one of the best we have experienced. The food was excellent and imaginative. Try the corned beef hash for breakfast and the chicken and waffles for dinner. Also try to stay in one of the rooms with a patio facing West for a glass of wine at sunset. Definitely worth the rate charged for the room. If I could change one thing it would be quieter air conditioning.

Thank you for sharing 3 nights with us recently, I appreicate the effort in writing a review of your experiences. First impressions being everything, great to hear that information and service provided by John was prompt and helpful. We do let the world grow around us, hard to imagine that only 40 years ago there was nothing for miles in the area. We were here so early the road was named for us. Glad you enjoyed our morning nature walk, this is a great way to learn about the diverse vegetation and wildlife we are blessed with. Thank you for joining our restaurants throughout your stay. Great to hear positive feedback on the chicken and waffle dish, the Grill recently added it to the menu and seems to be a pleaser already. My apologies on our excessively noisy AC units, I am hopeful for new units or central air in the near future. I hope the experience was worthy of a return visit, please contact me if I can assist with future reservations. Regards

My wife and I stayed one night here in early January. The grounds are beautiful and were nice to walk around. The room was nicely furnished and the view we had was a nice mix of the city and the mountains. We definitely recommend this place!

Mahalo for joining us on the mainland to celebrate New Years Eve. We strive to be the best and being the best way to experience Tucson is lofty praise indeed. Alot of the credit goes to the natural gifts we have been given but I also am appreciative that our staff added to your experience in a positive manner. A big hand to our restaurant as well for creating a stellar dining experience for you. I will of course be sharing your thoughts with them as always. Safe travels back to the islands and Happy New Year. Regards

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights over Christmas. We had a lovely room with beautiful views. The breakfasts were outstanding, as was the Christmas buffet. The staff members were all polite, professional, knowledgeable, and bent over backwards to help make our stay special. The hot tub was a treat on a cool day, and the grounds were just incredible. I thought the room rate was an excellent value. We will definitely be back!
