The city of Tucson has an array of shopping and dining minutes from the hotel. From shopping malls to unique local flavor boutiques, you will find what you need or didn't even know you wanted. Take some time during your resort experience to head into downtown Tucson. Downtown Tucson offers galleries, shopping and art experiences. There is also a varied list of restaurants including local cuisine. Also, explore four scenic mountain ranges - Tucson, Tortolita, Santa Rita and Santa Catalina. Hiking is available year-round, but we recommend an early morning adventure during the summer months. The trail-head for several hiking and biking runs can be found at the resort.
