We booked this trip to Tucson for rest and sun and what seemed like a nice change from our usual Scottsdale getaway. We were drawn to the Ritz as you can usually bank on good service and beautiful grounds. This hotel really is out in the middle of nowhere. This isn't a bad thing if that is the atmosphere you are looking for (which we were).....however, finding a good meal was an issue. I rate the food at this hotel as OK… but just OK only works for a day or two. Other than the hotel food options there were a few strip mall restaurants within close driving distance but they were nothing to brag about. I’d say the lack of access to a good meal while on a ‘fancy’ vacation was our biggest disappointment. In addition, as far as the grounds go I would not put this particular Ritz in the “wow!” category especially compared to some of their other locations. The advantages were a quiet relaxed atmosphere, always a seat at the pool and an exquisite spa. Picture yourself enjoying a fabulous massage then heading up to the spa pool for a glass of champagne, surrounded by nature, reading good book in the sun with no distractions and excellent service. That was a good day. The Pros and Cons leave me at undecided if I will come back since there are so many other places to try!
