My husband and I stayed here while visiting Tucson. We requested a tub because he was taking a rest day from hiking the Arizona Trail and was in need of a long soaking. They happily accommodated his needs. The beds were very comfortable and the decor was Fitting for the southwest. While the hotel was wonderful the restaurant was lacking... More

This restaurant is in the Lodge, very attractive surroundings, good menu. I had the chicken with fried polenta. the chicken was perfectly done but the polenta were greased spunges and couldn't eat them. One in our party oredered a glass of wine that was not to our liking. They charged us anyway. Many other dining places are more gracious

Usually when one is trapped in eating in one's accomodation, disappointment can occur. Not so with this restaurant; one night of elegant dining; and one of completely gourmet bar food. It will never disappoint!

Would rather pay $10 each for the convenience of eating breakfast at the hotel as the surrounding area is very peaceful. Free breakfast was HORRIBLE! Powdered eggs, cold oatmeal, cold stale tortillas, very stale cheap nasty muffins. Very sad. The Apple was good. LOL. People will remember the horrible food that was free more than the hotel trying to spend... More

We ate here on Valentine's Day and had an excellent dinner. There were two or three choices within the categories of appetizer, first course, main course, and dessert. There were two of us and we chose two from each category and so had a good sampling of the entire menu. Every single dish was delicious and imaginative, and the dishes... More

Stayed here for a birthday "get away" weekend. Good location for our needs. Room was quite large and therefore comfortable while we were actually in the room. The biggest drawback was that for the size of the room, there was only one comfortable chair. One of us had to sit on a wooden straight back chair or on the bed.... More
