An Arizona landmark and Tucson tradition, Lodge on the Desert is a 103-room boutique hotel appealing to leisure and business travelers alike. Situated on five acres in mid-town Tucson, AZ, it features guest pathways meandering among regal palms, native cacti and manicured lawns wrapped in ribbons of seasonal flowers. Charming hacienda-style accommodations afford guests a sanctuary in which to retreat and relax. It is truly Tucson's urban oasis. And considered by many to be the Old Pueblo's mid-town masterpiece. With event spaces for up to 175 guests, Lodge on the Desert is popular for small to mid-size meetings and intimate social gatherings. Against the majestic backdrop of the Santa Catalina Mountains, the Lodge's charming rooms and spacious suites welcome discerning travelers to a desert garden paradise that only nature and time could create. In fact, Lodge on the Desert was originally a family residence, opening for business in 1936 with a mere 7 rooms. Until just prior to a $15M dollar renovation and expansion completed in 2009, Lodge operated with 35 accommodations, becoming renowned for its intimate residential setting and genial hospitality. Today that rich history continues. From its guest rooms and suites, to meeting and event facilities, uniquely appealing dining offerings, in a destination which boasts a diverse array of some of Southern Arizona's undisputed best recreation and attractions, Lodge on the Desert is the epitome of blended Tucson - old and new. Lodge on the Desert is equally suited for family and vacation stays as business travel. Begin your day with an invigorating swim in the contemporary outdoor swimming pool. End it in the comfy luxury of custom bedding. Experience Southern Arizona. Visit one or many of the area's beautiful natural attractions, museums or unique space, science and technology venues. Take in a performance of opera, symphony, theatre or ballet. Explore diverse shopping districts close by. Plan a day-trip to historic Tombstone or Bisbee. Or perhaps travel to Sonoita and discover Southern Arizona's wineries and vineyards. If honing international bargaining skills appeals, a visit to Nogales, Mexico might just be the solution. And Tucson boasts many and varied dining choices.
