Lodge on the Desert

A Tucson Tradition 

Lodge On The Desert features hacienda-style touches such as kiva fireplaces, Saltillo-tiled floors, and is a great jumping off point with its close proximity to downtown Tucson shops and restaurants. For nature lovers and adventure seekers, the area offers gorgeous hiking, bird-watching, and caving opportunities.

A true Southwest original with kiva fireplaces, hacienda style décor, and native desert landscaping.

What it's like

Rooms have the flavor of the Southwest, with partially tiled floors, exposed beams, ceiling fans, and local art adorning the walls. Many rooms have balconies with views of the Santa Catalina Mountains. Lodge On The Desert’s grounds are landscaped with indigenous cacti, palms, and flowers, and the lounge area by the pool is complete with a fireplace and hot tub. 

Independent spirit

Gracious, Southwest-style, comfort

Small touches

Each stay at Lodge On The Desert is complete with a complimentary Lodge Breakfast. Featuring seasonally rotating entrees, fresh fruit, and baked goods made in-house, it’s the perfect way to begin your morning in Tucson.

Eat and drink

Cielos serves contemporary Southwest cuisine with a focus on seasonal ingredients. Floor-to-ceiling windows overlook an intimate patio, complete with misters during the summer. For drinks and nibbles, try a Prickly Pear Mojito and the charcuterie plate in the bar.
