I've stayed at the Lodge 4-5 times now and it will always be my choice in Tucson. The location is central with easy access to the University, downtown, and the airport. As Finediner17 noted, the rooms are large, in several arrangements, but I especially like the older rooms with fireplaces, seating areas, desks, really comfortable beds & beautiful linens, and large, modern bathrooms. (The whole property has been recently remodeled.) The pool is lovely. I was just there last week (8/22-24) and enjoyed the quiet garden spaces and walks between the rooms and the restaurant. The restaurant is very good, and I like sitting on the shady patio for a drink or a meal. There's a happy hour 4-6. The staff are helpful and friendly. Tiny peeve -- there's no 'guide' to hotel services etc. in the room and hasn't been for the 3 year period I've stayed there - I've mentioned it to the manager before and been told 'it's coming' but so far, it's not there.
