Although the Arizona Inn was originally two miles outside of town, it is now in a central city location surrounded by a quiet residential area, less than one mile from the University of Arizona and walking distance to the University Medical Center and Arizona Cancer Center.

It is perceived by its guests as an oasis of calm and relaxation in the middle of a busy desert city, still offering the same "quiet, privacy and sunshine" that it advertised in 1930.

Hotel Overview

Privacy, Quiet, Sunshine... The Arizona Inn is a historic, luxury boutique Tucson resort hotel spread over 14 tranquil acres of gardens, fountains, flowers and lawns in the heart of mid-town Tucson, AZ. Our luxury boutique resort hotel 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 hotel 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 Tucson provides an extremely high level of personal service in the classic sense - that is, excellent without being intrusive - and it does so in an absolutely 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 its friends and guests as an authentic beacon of civility and currently keeps hotel & resort awards and high honors including: AAA four diamond status for both the hotel and dining room, inclusion on Conde Nast's Traveler Gold List and Travel and Leisure's Top 500 Hotels in the World, Tripadvisor's Travelers' Choice Award for Best Service in the United States, a Wine Spectator Award of Excellence, and many others.

In fact when Isabella Greenway opened the hotel 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. Incredibly the Arizona Inn remains unique in this way, still the only luxury boutique Tucson resort hotel that offers a serene setting and exceptional service in the heart of Tucson.

On that long ago winter evening Isabella offered the following statement before the celebratory dinner dance that opened her Inn:"It is a simple home-like cottage hotel, complete in its luxuries and convenience of service, built with the desire to give its guests privacy, quiet and sunshine." -Isabella Greenway, Arizona Inn Founder

The Arizona Inn has stayed true to Isabella's 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 power of a four-diamond luxury boutique hotel. It remains as serene as ever, even as its mature trees (some older than the Inn), oleanders, flower beds and wondrous variety of cacti have become more quietly spectacular over the years, having prevailed over time and grown deep roots beneath this excellent place.
