This sprawling ochre-hued resort of 540 rooms and 35 suites blends remarkably well into its surroundings in the foothills of Tuscon Mountain Park. As you’d expect in golf and wellness-mad Tuscson, the spa and golf courses are highlights: find serenity at Hashani Spa during exotic treatments like the Native American-inspired hot stone massage. The 27 hole championship golf course, meanwhile, meanders through the mountains and arroyos of the arresting Arizona landscape. Kids aren’t overlooked either, thanks to a water slide, multi-level pool, lazy river, and whirlpool, along with a kids and teens club–aspiring PGA stars 15 and over can even play a free round after 3pm, provided they’re accompanied by an adult.
In the Area
Take the whole family to the marvelous Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, spanning 21 acres with two miles of walking paths and 230 animal species. Head to downtown Tucson and visit Old Town Artisans, an array of arts, crafts, and antique stores in an historic structure with ceilings made from saguaro cactus ribs. Afterwards, take refreshments at The B Line, a hip bistro on 4th Avenue that dishes up treats from cult veggie burgers to fish tacos.
How to Get There
Food, service, pool, back drop, spa. All perfect. Main pool area has kid activities while spa pool is quiet with cabanas and room service available. Would move here if I could. Will be back next time for a longer period.
Attend an annual conference there each year. Always clean and well kept. Great service. I walk for exercise and always use the pathways and trails around the resort. AND, they have lots of steps to climb if you want to...great exercise
We were here for a conference and as usual the hotel was a great place to host a conference.
Good rooms, great conference facilities! We didn't try the pools or the golf, but they look to be very good from what we have seen.
There are a small number of eating places on site, and much cheaper options (e.g. iHop, Denny's) about 15 mins away, most of which is getting out of the resort, it's tucked away in the hills!
There are trail hikes at 6am in the morning, and the free one is a good introduction to the area, and not very strenuous, lasting about 45 minutes. The guide is very knowledgeable about the area and we learned a lot about the wildlife around.
There is an on-site Starbucks...which closes at 7pm at night (why!!!) but opens at 5am
If you need to be here for a convention, or if you are a Marriott Bonvoy member then this is a good resort to be in.
