This is The Place for Tucson. All those other places -- Stallion Ranch, Canyon Ranch, etc. -- are for those who love a hectic life. If you've like to stay in the center of Tucson in absolute, truly noticeable quiet, beautiful grounds, delightful dining, welcoming service, and perfect accommodation -- this is where to go.
We stayed here by accident while trying to see too much in Tucson in too little time. The Arizona Inn cured us of that! After just one night, we preferred the Inn to sights and cut back our driving around to one event per day. Why? The Inn is just so, so, so pleasant. It's a destination in itself. Decompression exemplified....
Surely, you can swim laps in the huge pool, play tennis (or croquet or ping pong), ride bikes, gambol on horses and so forth but why not sink into a huge leather chair in the library, read and snooze? A perfect day: sleep late, breakfast on the patio with the complimentary Times/WSJ, off for a tour somewhere, back for a swim and a cocktail, dinner and fine wine, DVD from the classic movie collection and an early collapse.
No need to go on... other reviews are on target though we didn't have a single bad meal and the service was as slow or fast as we directed. No one is rushing you off your table in order to turn it, that's for sure! This is where Old Tucson discretely shows up to arrange things so you're likely to see and chat with wonderfully capable people -- a nice treat -- and an assurance of courtly behavior.
We're putting this on our World List of Most Pleasant Places and now planning to spend a couple of weeks there soon.
