Privacy, Quiet & Sunshine. The Arizona Inn is an historic, boutique, resort hotel spread over 14 acres of gardens, fountains, flowers and lawns in the heart of mid-town Tucson, Arizona. The luxury Inn has been continually owned and operated by the same family since its inception under the careful eye of its founder, Isabella Greenway, in 1930, and its casita-style rooms and suites have been robustly maintained and restored ever since, keeping their original warmth, privacy, comfort and charm while gaining all the modern day resort amenities a Tucson guest might desire. First and foremost the Arizona Inn provides an extremely high level of personal service in the classic sense – that is, excellent without being intrusive – and it does so in a straightforward way regarding hotel rates and charges: there are never any hidden “resort fees”, parking fees, internet access fees, etc. As a result the Arizona Inn is recognized by friends and guests as being a beacon of civility and maintains AAA four diamond status for both the hotel and dining room. Other current high honors and awards for the Inn are inclusion on Conde Nast’s Traveler Gold List, Travel and Leisure’s Top 500 Hotels in the World, Tripadvisor’s Travelers’ Choice Award for Best Service in the United States, the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence and many others. When Isabella Greenway opened her Inn almost eighty years ago she did so partly because there were no hotels in Tucson that suited travelers coming for a peaceful and relaxing trip, and the Arizona Inn is still the only luxury resort hotel offering a serene setting and exceptional service in the heart of Tucson. On that winter evening almost eighty years ago Isabella offered the following opening statement before a celebratory dinner dance:
And the Arizona Inn has stayed true to her clear and graceful mandate. It has become, over the decades, a model of Western elegance, a place with the spirit of a bed and breakfast but the consistent, convincing service of a four-diamond hotel. It remains as serene as ever, even as its mature trees (some older than the Inn), flower beds and cacti have quietly become more spectacular over the years, having grown deep roots beneath this excellent place.
