Was booked to stay here in early February After a long day of flying and driving, my friend and I finally made it to the hotel ready to sleep At check in, they stated they had some rooms closed due to unexpected maintenance

They made us go to a different hotel Samantha was the one working, and was very sweet, but assured us that Holiday Inn would be reimbursing me for our stay at the other hotelThe second hotel, Comfort Inn next door, took my card, as the Holiday Inn said this would be the case but they would reimburse meThis morning, MORE THAN A MONTH LATER, after speaking with five different employees (never being contacted by a manager or owner as I said I would be), Nicole told me I’m not going to be reimbursed for the $220 stay at the hotel next door She also told me they were overbooked the night I had booked in advance and this is why my friend and I were moved to a different hotel1 They lied initially about the reason for needing to switch hotels2 I’ve spoken with five different people who told me the owners just had not received the bill yet from the other hotel another lie3 Nobody had the decency, until today, they plan to not reimburse usHad we known they would not reimburse, we would have found a different, cheaper hotel or kept driving until we were able to do so The same people must own these two hotels, or else they’re friends What a way to make an easy $220 This is your lesson to get it in WRITING that they are going to reimburse you for the stay in another hotel after the inconvenience of forcing you to switch hotels because their overbooking errorSeems like this was honestly done on purpose Like I said, the owners of these two hotels must be the same, or at the very least, great chums Don’t recommend either hotelNot sure why 0/5 isn’t an option, because that’s what this location deserves

Gevey Vaughn

Hotel was clean and accommodatingMy room was booked through my work and there was several of us there Even with the rooms being full, the front desk clerk was pleasant and worked promptly to accommodate my need for a first floor room

Breakfast isn’t my thing, but looked it over and the options were nice and smelled yummy, but I just grabbed a fruit and checked out Overall no complaints and don’t mind staying here again in the future

Joel Smith

Sadly this experience was worse than 1 star but that is all I am allowed Stayed at this establishment for the better part of a month and the housekeepers wouldn’t show up but once every 6 days or so and when I did go down and ask for clean towels/sheets they told me that they did not have any The day she did show up she stole my rechargeable batteries and charger

They even looked up her name and knew exactly who it was!I reported it immediately to the General Manager Tim which has since quit Once he was not able to help me I reported this to the new manager Rosa and she said she would be able to get compensation for the stolen item that I needed for work2 months of back and forth being told I would be taken care of I show up at the hotel and wanted to talk to the managerShe was not there at the time but said would show up Once she was told by the front desk agent it was me she told her she would not be coming and I would also not be compensated for the stolen itemThis establishment certainly does not know how to take care of their guests especially since the company I work for was spending thousands of dollars there and have since switched If you want great service go to the embassy suites not the holiday inn express

I am happy to give this establishment 5 stars Clean & comfortable hotels can still be found at an excellent value- (even in today’s market) The highlights of the suites are the large kitchenette and the extremely helpful service

The front desk personnel are kind, friendly, and accommodating (We were a family of 4 – including a special needs adult staying in the 2 queen room) The suites themselves are located in a quiet part of town relatively close to attractions I felt safe in and around the hotel I would stay again & am happy I found such family friendly lodging!


We spoke to Nichole Oram the front office manager, multiple times before our stay She was always very nice and helpful with all of our questions about Tucson and the surrounding area She recommended multiple places to dine for both breakfast and dinner

All were VERY GOOD I can’t go on enough about the diner across the road called Jerry Bob’s The staff was very friendly and the cook was spectacularOur room was very clean, and the air conditioning was nice and cold Just what you want in the hot, hot summertime We were surprised to find that we could do laundry for free while staying there We will stay at this hotel every time we pass through this part of Arizona I wish all hotels were as clean, the staff was as nice, and the location this good!Thanks again Nichole for everything

Randi rae

Great rooms, very clean and good for one person Two people might need a larger room than what they offer but for the most part very nice accomodations The staff is very helpful and friendly with the exception of one staff member who has an attitude and is not friendly or concerned with how she comes across to guests

I witnessed multiple interactions in which she was quite unfriendly I did notify the manager of my interaction with this staff member and was assured it would be addressed as it apparently is not the first time someone has brought it to their attention The staff member Ryan, I believe is her name, was my favorite and most helpful, accommodating front desk person I had the pleasure of interacting with and if I went back it would be because of the great service she provided and the effort she made to correct any issue that was brought to her attention As far as hotels pool it was small but nice, the gym was a good size and they offer free laundry which is a plus if your staying for an extended amount of time Overall I was pleased with my stay

Patricia Ann McNair

Such a gem of a place! While the website makes things look cozy and inviting, it didn’t prepare us for how truly beautiful the inn is, its lush courtyard, sweet accommodations, and delightful host, Patti! Breakfast to order and delicious, furnishings attractive without being too “precious” to use or put a cup of coffee down We spent hours happily sitting in the dappled shade just out our door watching the hummingbirds feast and resident cats nap Close to restaurants, museums, and some of Tucson’s most treasured barrios

Ges X

A wonderful BnB, in a beautiful historic home with a lovely courtyard Patti is a warm host with a wealth of information about the area and its history The breakfasts were delicious

We want to return here and stay longer next time Such a great location: right next to downtown but enclosed in thick adobe walls and a peaceful place in the midst of the city

Michael Maxwell

I usually do not take the time to write reviews Today I am making an exception after spending three nights at this extablishment My wife and I have stayed in B & Bs all across the US

This ranks as one of the best The property is very special It is has been impeccably restored over 40+ years to its former self Located in Tucson’s historic district, it looks much as it did in the 1800s when it was built, but is totally modern in its conveniences Mrs Toci has spent a lifetime collecting just the right antiques for each room The court yard is charming and inviting Her breakfasts are the best we have experienced in our travels She is willing to accommodate any dietary requirement You will be sorry if you pass this place up on a trip to Tucson

Shelley Johnsen

This hotel is certainly top notch in customer service Ann at the front desk, the lady who services the breakfast and the female bartender in the evening were exceptional Everyone greeted us no matter who they were or what they were doing

The pool is large, the outdoor sitting area is fantastic and the view is incredible The suites are very adequate and clean They do allow pets The only bad experience we had was that a room a few doors down had 2 large dogs that howled all day while their owners were out of the room The restaurant has good food, large portions The free breakfast buffet has a huge selection We would stay again if in the area

Andra Pittman

Our stay was great! The suite was more than big enough We didn’t have too much interaction with housekeeping except for asking for towels, housekeeping is upon request but I can’t say enough about the front desk and the ppl that worked in the food area The restaurant area is great! Breakfast was as good as , if not better than most restaurants

Cooked to order eggs, pancakes, yum! It is free but I recommend tipping Everyone from the cooks, waitress and bartender share the tips and they completely earn those tips They also have a great happy hour from 5 to 7 that can be anything from bagged snacks to prepared in the kitchen small plates It was delicious and the bartender was great!

Gina Schrock

I walk with a cane, I called to see if my room had a walk in shower and if I could be close to the entrance or a elevator spoke with Allison who double checked on the shower and delivered everything was perfect had a great view of the pool and mountains, room immaculate! Breakfast was great many choices and healthy ones too! Service was great for breakfast I will definitely be back for we visit family who lives here and everything was great!

Remember to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙoʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking your room This site will compare thousands of hotel sites and usually will have rooms a lot cheaper than others! Thank me later! This hotel is the best rated in the area

I’ve been staying here for a very long time If you decide to stay here you for sure won’t be let downEverything about this hotel is first class Every employee I encountered was so nice and accommodating The grounds are beautifully landscaped The room we had was clean and comfortable Afternoon tea is a nice touch

Danielle Anderson

***EDITED*** The romance of the southwestern architecture, sitting room and beautiful desert landscapes brought us back for some local R&R I’ve stayed at the Arizona Inn over the last 15 years and little has changed

Maybe some modern interior design upgrades and implementation of local artist toiletries might spark the interest to return For now all I miss is the lovely dinner at the Audubon Restaurant experience we had

Erin Marie Bradley

Super disappointed with how the Arizona Inn handled their guests who had events booked that were affected by Covid I had my wedding planned for the Spring and then rescheduled for Fall and the staff failed to contact me about cancelling the event BOTH times Instead, they called my wedding guests that had reserved stays to inform them that my wedding was cancelled and asked if they wanted to cancel their reservations as well

They also requested that the guests not tell ME about their reservations getting cancelled because the Inn wanted to contact me Shouldn’t you contact the person hosting the event BEFORE you call their guests? In any case, they NEVER CALLED ME I was under the impression was wedding was still going to be held during the Fall when I rescheduled it for Weeks leading up to the date, I called to confirm I was told that they were not holding any events until further notice No apologies from the staff or manager, Patrick, that I spoke with I lost many deposits on the vendors that I had booked because of their lack of communication and it was also a struggle to get our funds back that we had paid ahead of time for the entire wedding It seems they wanted to keep our money for a wedding they had no intention of holding? And they did not consider communication being essential during a time where they let go most of their staff? Needless to say, I have never been so angry with an organization before and their administration’s lack of empathy and action is appalling

This hotel is amazing!! It was my last stop in a string of many hotel stays on a cross country road trip, and boy, did I save the best for last!!Very friendly front desk staff, very clean rooms with high quality soap/shampoo, comfortable beds, and great water pressure The hotel breakfast was one of the best I’ve seen, with lots of options and a large, tastefully decorated space to enjoy it Plus, I love the fresh lemonade & cookies offered by the front desk, a thoughtful touch

I wouldn’t stay anywhere else!! Can’t wait to come back!

Lindsey Lou

We were pleasantly surprised We choose a king size bed room with a pullout couch It had a microwave, fridge, and sink

Plenty of space for a pack-n-play as well The front desk people were courteous and they had complimentary cookies, juice and coffee in the evening For breakfast, their food was better than other hotel breakfasts The egg omelet was soft and they had oatmeal, cereal, and waffles as well Highly recommend

Hayley Stansell

My ONLY con for our experience here was that our room lacked a microwave and the fridge didn’t have a freezer portion I feel like I have never encountered a hotel room without a microwave That said, clean place, well-maintained, just meets the criteria you would expect at a place like this very nicely

The breakfast has the usual items for a hotel in this price range – BUT, it is better attended to than most The items were prepared WELL, the eggs were good (also were just eggs, some places add ham which screws over vegetarians), they had lots of toppings for oatmeal, waffles, etc Overall just an example of a well-run hotel for it’s class Great experience!

Beautiful resort splashed up against the desert mountain rangeNext to a great hiking trail behind the tennis courtsFood and restaurant were blah and not resort quality

Since food quality was blah, we ate outside the resort every day for breakfast, lunch, and dinnerGoing out to enjoy the local food is the best experience Many great food choices for foodiesDrinks were goodSwimming pool and jacuzzi hot tub were awesome, every day and evening

El Conquistador Tucson, A Hilton ResortHotelPLACE DETAILSa week agoBecause this “resort” didn’t send me a survey or request feedback about my stay like most Hilton’s do, I will post my review hereThe resort is beautiful and looks like a lovely place to relax Unfortunately for me, that wasn’t why I booked a four day stay there

Coming from Pittsburgh, PA and never being to AZ before made it difficult to decide where to stay I chose this hotel/resort becauseit was the closest place I could find to where I needed to be to tend to a family crisis I would’ve chosen elsewhere if I knew that there was no way to park closer to my room I wish this was indicated on your website or that someone in the Reservations Dpt warned me, Because I was in Tuscon to help clean out my family member’s house, I returned to the hotel each evening with several heavy bags and binsto sort through which forced me to rely on bellhops every time I was coming or going I waited up to 45 minutes for a bellhop on oneoccasion and then at least 30 minutes for all the other times I’m pretty sure there was only one bellhop available per shift and thatone bellhop always had the only cart with them so I couldn’t do it myself I must say that all my interactions with the bellhops were pleasant, and they all apologized when I told them how long I had been waiting Because the bellhops were the only highlight during my stay, I then had the unexpected task of making sure I had enough cash on hand to give them a well-deserved tip ($30 in $1 bills) I need to add that there was one front desk associate (Jolleane) who offered to walk me to my room as it was late at night, and she knew I had safety concerns This offer was greatly appreciated

Joyce Donnelly

This hotel has beautiful views but you certainly cannot credit the staff for that This is just a hotel that happens to have a nice viewThere are no microwaves, which is extremely inconvenient

If 2 star hotels have microwaves and a free breakfast, I would expect a 4 star hotel to have that as well It really deterred me from spending any money at their over priced restaurant since that is clearly the motive in having no microwaves Luckily there are nice restaurants close byThe hot tubs were not very hot Felt like bath waterRoom service was sub par, I had to ask for full sized towels because they forgot to give me some No real cleaning was done, just a quick towel and garbage grab and they were goneAlso, do not expect to do your laundry here They charge you per item, not per pound You’re better off driving 15 minutes to a laundromat and doing your own laundry for less than $3 (Opposed to $450 per shirt and over $8 per pant, etc)Overall it really seems like I should have gotten a lot more bang for my buck here

Joy Felkins

It was so dirty that we almost checked out as soon as we checked in(and we should have) but it was too much trouble We were tired and my son’s graduation was early the next morning During our stay one of the two elevators was down and the service elevator was a well

Not good not good at all! It was a full house and not only do you have the graduates and their families you also had housekeeping using the one elevator that only holds 6 people Also, because of the graduation everyone needed it if there at the same time!The staff was nice, apologetic, but really needed more knowledge of the area The taxi service they use, the cars were filthy, but the drivers were nice They boast about having the best cinnamon rolls, so we were eager to try them, boy were we disappointed They were dry and no goopinessWe stayed in an accessible room for my mom but the door was so heavy it almost knocked her over, the floor was filthy, the ceiling was disgusting and made you feel it was going to cave in, but in a good note the beds were clean(I took the sheets off to make sure) Shame on Marriott for allowing a property like this in their portfolio! I love Marriott’s not this one! 🤮 One positive, we had a nice view of the mountains and campus

concerned person

You think after a 13 and a half hour drive id be in a bad mood checking into a hotel??? Well I was but Elisha at the front desk with her cheerful professional personality made it all go away It is employees like Elisha that make people wanting to continue to choose Aloft as their place to stay Thank you Elisha for your welcoming greeting that made our stay a very pleasant one

Give this woman a raise or a paid day off cause she deserves it👍

Tanisha Serrano

The hotel itself was really nice, but I’m indifferent because I’m not sure about the initial service we received checking in, want comfortable The service during the street and when we were leaving was awesome I guess it was just the two ladies they had at the front initially

There is a bar and pool table downstairs and snack area Restaurants are within walking distance for those wanting to visit

We stayed here for two nights in February and wished we had booked a week! The Adobe Rose is a very beautiful, immaculate adobe styled bed and breakfast inn with gorgeous outdoor spaces including an in ground pool There was parking on and near the premises

The rooms were all well appointed, clean and very comfortable Tom and Bob were wonderful hosts Communication regarding the reservation, check in/out, breakfast menus and the like was excellent And as other guests have pointed out, the breakfasts were amazing!! It started with wonderful coffee (and juice if you wanted) Followed by a fruit platter, main course and then dessert This delicious meal lasted us all day The neighborhood was very quiet, quite charming as well as very conveniently located to the convention center, the university, the botanical gardens, zoo, etc We will definitely stay here the next time we visit Tucson I am very grateful we were able to stay at this wonderful Inn!

Catherine Gallagher

A lovely get-away location for visiting Tucson The central courtyard is a beautiful oasis with plants and birds to make one feel totally relaxed Lots of tables to sit at outdoors

Indoors, there is a wonderful common area with a fireplace And the breakfast is divine The proprietor Tom made accommodations to my vegan boyfriend to ensure he had a beautiful breakfast to enjoy Wonderful food and great central location to visit many sites in Tucson!

Barbara MacLeod

I LOVED my two nights at the Adobe Rose Inn I visited Tucson for a quick professional appointment and was so glad that I had done my research to find a restorative, beautiful spot in a quiet neighborhood Everything was fantastic – I reserved the king room with the deep tub and was glad I did

Terry was so welcoming and cooked up two incredible breakfasts The flowers were in bloom, the pool was a lovely respite and I can’t say enough good things about my stay

Joshua James Bailey

It reminded me of what a Tucson quaint resort would be It was a referral for us to check Lou check out and it lived up to what was described to us as a quiet get away for us as a coupleThe staff was awesome! Especially the gentleman that was running the breakfast every morning

He was very kind and Thoughtful and we saw him 4 mornings in a row The options were awesome for a free breakfast the views were one of the best parts, you do not have patio or inside were both great choices Free mimosas were awesome too!We didn’t try the regular rooms we did get a suite that was pretty cool because it had its own patio in front and patio in the back and a Mini kitchen… There was no bathtub So for warning if you want to soak, but they do have a Hot tub that was nice and a well kept pool, though it was showing its age One of the small amount of pools left that still have a deep end so it’s nice to do a little dive :)They have a good event center that I’m hoping to do a wellness event ato vent at so I encourage anybody wanting to easier access for traffic and parking place to do an event to check it outIf there was one thing that stands out that I would ask them to improve it would be the elevator😬 I know it’s older but the smell was odd and it just seemed rickety and wasn’t a good 1st impression when taking things down to the rooms It could make a world of difference to have a nice elevator to greet people for their 1st time on the property It would be a great investment for that establishment Outside of that everything else was well maintained, comfortable, quaint, totally Southwest to Tucson vibe, and nice Courtyard gardensWill be coming back again

Cherry May

Quaint, cozy, clean and affordable are the words that best describe this little hidden oasis We love that it is the most pet friendly hotel we’ve ever been to Staff were nice and accommodating

Only reason why I cannot give it 5 stars is because 1) There is no on site laundry facility and 2) The bathroom does not have a vent fan Other than that, this is the best place to take your family and your pet(s) while in Tucson

Jim Mash

This is a cozy hotel, we enjoyed our stay The staff are exceptional, they gave us great accommodations because we are with our kids, the breakfast were great, more than the standard hotel continental breakfast The hotel layout and architectures are quite unique, like in south Spain or some Caribbean town

Location is close to lots of shops and restaurants, very convenient Will definitely come back next time!

The thermostat was easy to use which made our stay comfortable The staff was so kind and welcoming They helped us figure out dinner and get settled The waitstaff was amazing and the food was delicious We spent a few hours at the grill and had a wonderful time We are planning to come back with our full family to enjoy the other accommodations Worth the price

It’s a nice resort, beautiful environs Reasonably priced, good facilities, very nice staff Like a lot of properties, I think it needs a little refresh after covid, seems like certain things have not been attended to as perhaps they would have if Wyndham was flush, and staffing was not an issue

Paths around the property need repaving Less trafficked areas of grounds had bits of litter Carpet fraying a bit at the junction w hard floor of the bathroom Mostly very nice but


We had stayed previously at the Loews Resort and had such an awful time there we decided to give this place a try, and I’m so incredibly happy we did The staff was so nice and our check in process was quick and easy, we booked through bookingcom and had no issues at all

Valet was present and able to help us to our room immeadiately and he was such a sweetheart The staff working along the property are incredibly knowledgeable about its history John Wayne and Dean Martin had stayed here before and the room they use to stay in is now the cutest gift shop The room service was amazing, everything was fresh and clean We tried all the deserts and couldn’t pick a favorite they were equally so wonderful in their own ways We walked around the gardens and the chefs garden was so amazing We saw so much wildlife including a snakes, cardinals, lizards, and lots of different species of butterflies We learned about a ghost that also roam the property and in the beginning of my stay I swear I had seen her standing in our bathroom checking on us We are huge paranormal fans so this was an out of this world stay Definitely coming back Thank you so much to everyone here!

Every single part of our stay was amazing! The food, the activities, the staff

The ranch was exactly what our family had hoped for during our spring break The rides were great especially the fast rides We participated in all the horse activities, archery,

22 shooting, entertainment, and e-biking, which was actually very fun Makayla did a great job My older son enjoyed the basketball court , my in-laws enjoyed the hot tub, and my younger son and I enjoyed feeding and petting the horses during any down time We enjoyed every minute here! Customer service is excellent Special thanks to Kristy for picking us up at the airport after many delays and going out of her way to stop by the store for us and having the items waiting in the hacienda! We highly recommend this place!!! We will very much miss the horses especially the ones right out by our house! We stayed in the hacienda It was a lovely home with beautiful scenery from the front looking at the horses to the back by our own fire pit with the mountains in the background

Tanya Wallace

We took a group of 11 people to the ranch for a work trip All of the staff were very accommodating Carol and Stefanie were awesome at arranging our group activities

Everyone had a blast We had a lot of beginner riders Some had never been on a horse before The wranglers were very patient and encouraging with us all The shooting range was well organized We Definitely recommend the White Stallion Ranch and hoping to bring our kids back for a vacation soon

The suite was very spacious and clean The pool area hot tub patio seats everything was kept very nice The girls at the front desk we’re polite and courteous as well as the clerk the next morning on day shift

Although they had construction going on at the time it did not affect my room and the noise from the contractors was only during working hours and did not wake us up or keep us from going to sleep Located next to great restaurants like Guadalajara right across the street I would highly recommend staying at this hotel

Dr. Holly DeWitt

Had a great 1-night stay! Front desk, Sara & Michelle, were fabulous! I stayed in a renovated room and it was so nice! Hot water, great lighting, refrigerator, comfy bed, and great location to restaurants/drinks/Whole Foods Pool was very clean and great temperature No breakfast, currently, due to renovations(but knew that going in)

Would definitely recommend!

Thomas Xyclone

We stayed at the 3 Palms for five days The room was clean but very small We had a king size bed which took up mahout 90% of the room

Actually, the room was laid out nicely and had a small refrigerator and microwave in a cabinet The room had the nicest big screen television I have ever seen The staff was very friendly We were at the back of the hotel where a lot of construction equipment was stored It appeared that the hotel was under major renovation but surprisingly the area was actually very quiet I think our room had been renovated: however I noted a large crack under the entry door Worried that rodents or bugs could easily enter the room No breakfast is offered at the hotel but coffee and tea is offered in the morning My main issue is the road in front of the hotel, N Oracle road, is like a freeway Non stop speeding traffic made it difficult to exit the property There are plenty of restaurants and businesses in the area that you can walk to but the area is much too congested Not a bad hotel, although a little expensive,but I would probably stay elsewhere on my next visit The room was just too small and there is no breakfast included with the rate

Coming from the hospitality industry myself, I think my standards are high and I’m a bit picky I have never been more impressed with a hotel I was allowed an early check-in (due to unforseen events) and a late check out

The front desk staff is exemplary The attitude and professionalism of every single employee I encounteredsuch a friendly, “all is good”, relaxed attitudethe maid staff whistling tunes and singing while they clean It really has been a pleasure staying here and seeing genuinely kind people enjoying their jobsThis has been a difficult phase of my life, relocating and not feeling on solid ground and this hotel and this wonderfully kind staff made all the difference THANKS SO MUCH, I APPRECIATE EACH OF YOU!Also, the rooms are very comfortable and very clean and all the breakfast options are delicioustoo many options, I’m pretty sure I gained a few pounds

Andrea Maria

We have stayed here once before but never again after this stay There were small bugs in the bathroom that kept on coming that we eventually found on the bed We asked Linda in front what she could do about it and was told that it was common for the area

We have stayed in dove mountain and other Marriott hotels before where the wildlife is a feature, but we’ve never had these problems Housekeeping is doing their best to take care of them but there’s only so much they can do Kudos to the housekeeping staff for being friendly and helpful but Linda not so much We asked her twice to move us to another room, and no resolution was offered other than a reluctant move to another room We will be contacting general management on Monday

Halsey Hall Lindquist

Very impressed with the service Very nice breakfast I’m not that impressed with the rooms

Parts of the bathroom floor were constantly wet because the shower curtain didn’t seem to work the way it should and the showers faucet was so confusing One knob to turn on and one knob to change temperature We also had a broken window screen and a cricket in the window clearly due to the broken screen Would definitely stay here again But would try and be aware of some of those issues before hand

Room and staff were fine Max, waiter at the lobby restaurant was superb- great attentive serviceOnly complaint I have for the hotel was something apparently beyond their control…but is also beyond annoying

There is a bar (Gentle Ben’s, I believe Don’t patronize it Maybe it can go out of business) not only has their music cranked to the max, but the bass is so loud you not only hear it but feel it in the rooms that are unfortunately located on that side – South side I think It is annoying to the nth degreeThe other problem with rooms on this side of the hotel is that 6:30 AM on the dot, every morning the trash trucks back up…to the accompaniment of piercing beep, beep, beeps, and then to the noise of banging steel and heavy chains do the deed with multiple dumpstersNot knowing what it was the first morning I was convinced that a truck had just delivered a load of steel pipes or girders and rolled them off the truck and dropped them on the street We got to enjoy that everysinglemorning Lovely way to wake up three hours before you intended to on a vacationWe stayed here last year in a different part of the hotel and had no issues We expect to stay here again next year, but only if not on this side of the building

Greg Valdez

This hotel is located very close to campus and other downtown attractions Parking is available for a fee and there is a valet The hotel had an atrium feel with large open spaces

Rooms are decorated in modern furnishings and the bed was very comfortable There is a coffee maker in the room It was very clean, nicely sized and everything worked The restaurant downstairs serves breakfast that was delicious There is no complimentary breakfast For a one night stay it was great and I would stay there again

JB L (Jessie)

I usually don’t post review but for Aries I will Aries helps with housekeeping and has been very attentive to details—brings extra tea bags as I left some on the counter, brings makeup remover when I have makeup on my counter, etc Overall, room is more spacious than a typical Marriott, open building layout, good first floor dining/lounging space

As a titanium member, I received great accommodations I will note one thing for anyone who will stay here (and unfortunately it’s out of Marriott’s control), you will likely get eat plugs in the room as neighboring building has loud music occasionally and trash truck comes around 5:20AM- 8:00 AM regularly

We (my wife, two kids, and me) just wrapped up a two day/two night staycation at Ritz Carlton Dove Mountain This was a great experience from top to bottom Customer service was top notch from every department and employee we encountered

The rooms were comfortable and decent sized, not to mention great views There are plenty of dining options to chose from and they are all great We didn’t have a bad piece of food at any restaurant There are two main pools in the resort One is clearly geared to be a kids pool, with a splash pad and water slide, and the other is geared to be an adult pool (although it isn’t an adults only pool) Both pools, while different vibes, are great Food and drink service around the pools is also top notch and if you’re hungry or thirsty, you won’t wait long before being able to get an order inWe’ve stayed at a few high-end resorts since the pandemic and it seems like most of them have taken a step back in terms of the quality of customer service Not at Ritz Carlton Dove Mountain I can’t recommend this resort enough! We will be back

Cindy Wulbert

I loved the Ritz-Carlton at Dove Mountain The rooms are great and the staff was excellent Everyone was professional and interested in making our stay enjoyable

I would love for them to offer additional items such as a shrimp cocktail by the pool but the food was great at the pool The staff is well developed to offer the type of service you expect to get at a 5 star hotel I also liked the adult atmosphere at the upper pool while the kids were mainly at the pool with the water slide It was very peaceful and relaxing

Carmella Weatherill

What a hidden gem! So quite and serene – the grounds are beautiful and the property is tucked away off the main roads for a peaceful experience – decor has a very rustic feeling The indoor lounging areas are very inviting if you just want to hang out and have a drink by the fire or at the wine bar Highly recommend if you want to get away and chill

Great hiking, golf and spa! Staff was very friendly and available
