This is my first time at Westin La Paloma and to the Southwestern US. The views from resort were wonderful - pool was very relaxing and enjoyed the water slide (though it was closed our last day there). The inside of the room was very well maintained and recently updated. We were in building F - an 'uphill' walk from the main pool area - but a nice view of the mountains at sunrise (my colleague was in building C and she had a view overlooking the golf course and stunning Arizona Sunsets!) The resort is spread out; I enjoyed walking around the property between buildings but someone who has difficulty walking up and down hills may not like this (although they do have an abundance of staff with golf carts to take you around).
The food was highly priced but some bargains could be found. Azul's Happy Hour was a bargain featuring $5 Signature Martinis (I recommend the prickly pear punch), house wines and well drinks as well as $2 off draft beers and half price appetizers. The Appetizers were delicious - during the week we enjoyed the house charcuterie board (cold meats and cheeses); pork sliders, and fried risotto/mozzarella fritters with pomodoro (my favorite it included a 'side' of fresh baby greens with vinaigrette) and the mussels were also great! If you are coming to La Paloma in the next month - also try the J Bar (next to Janos) - great sunset views and one of the best margaritas (half priced during happy hour 5-6:30 pm). Also their 'J dog' (special southwest hot dog was $2.75 during happy hour and actually tasty). Our waiter told us that Janos and the J Bar will be closing at the end of the month :( but Janos also owns another restaurant in downtown Tucson. Also at checkin you will get a booklet of 'discount coupons' for the spa, restaurants and retail outlets in the hotel.
Conference facilities were nice -- only complaint was the temperature got cold, but I'm sure it's a challenge to maintain comfortable temperatures in SW Arizona and the conference staff were very responsive to requests to adjust thermostat.
