Expert Reviews
Lonely Planet
Rooms in this gracefully aging 1930s resort are in hacienda-style casitas flanked by cacti and palm trees, and decorated in charmingly modern Southwest style.
Rough Guide
1930s adobe resort a couple of miles east of downtown, tastefully restored to resemble a Mexican hacienda, with large, comfortable rooms and a good restaurant.
The upper-middle-range Lodge on the Desert is a unique slice of Tucson, with a 75-plus-year history and an updated look that gives its historic rooms a modern feel.
