Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I have stayed here a few times. It is absolutely my favrorite hotel in Tucson. The grounds are meticulously cared for with walkways through gorgeous cactus garden. The rooms are large and quiet and spotless with incredible and unique touches like ceramic inlaid tiles. DO NOT miss the restaurant. In a city of amazing dining options, their restautant is one of the best.

Picked this place in a hurry but so glad I did. The cutest desert hotel. Beautiful cactus walkways. Pool in middle has a nice design. Check in was fast and friendly. Dinner at the hotel restaurant was delicious, as well as their breakfast! Couldn't recommend it more
