Charming hacienda-style accommodations afford guests a sanctuary in which to retreat and relax. The restaurant at Lodge on the Desert delivers fresh new American cuisine. And dining or cocktailing al fresco on the spacious courtyard patio is both peaceful and inviting. Menus are eclectic, while reflecting Tucson’s southwestern heritage.
