Loews Ventana Canyon

Tucson, Arizona

The hotel

If your idea of ‘getting back to nature’ doesn’t involve sacrificing the luxuries of modern life, Loews Ventana Canyon Resort will delight. Set high above Tucson, its desert-skirting setting plays host to two golf courses, a sumptuous spa, exciting dining experiences, tennis courts, two heated pools (with a Poolside Concierge serving chilled drinks), and complimentary WiFi. It may come with all those contemporary bells and whistles, but they’re delivered in a timeless desert landscape, a few miles from Sabino Canyon, with beautiful views of the Catalina Mountains, indigenous saguaro cactus-filled gardens, a stargazing telescope, and a half-mile nature trail linking a butterfly garden and 80 foot waterfall.

We had another memorable stay at Ventana Canyon resort. Beautiful property and grounds, very nice staff and good food. The pool area is always a treat. We enjoyed their new Sangria Sunday brunch as well but really missed the live music. They used to have a fantastic Celtic harpist playing popular and jazz music who made the event extra special.… Read more

The resort is taking extra precautions to protect its guests from Covid, which we appreciated very much. Read less Read less

stayed here for my birthday weekend the 25th and 26th Tv has no channels. Unable to hook up a console to the TV to access Netflix, etc. One tiny trashcan in the room.

Room service is astronomically priced. I will stick to the Hampton Inn. Read less

We enjoyed a safe getaway after being at home for the past seven months. We were looking for a place where we felt safe and could relax. This did the trick. There were good Covid guidelines in place. The resort is very comfortable. The grounds are beautiful and serene. The food was very tasty. During the week it’s primarily grab and go items but end of the week, we had good food by the pool and at the restaurant. The service was great. Everybody was very friendly and prompt to our request. Two small suggestions, there was some fast food trash in the habitat area near our room. We reported it as we could not enter the area ourselves. It was still there as we left. It was a bit distracting from such a beautiful place. Secondly, we were unaware of some of the amenities as there is not very good signage or communication. I would suggest putting in every room a list of these items or maybe have a sign in the lobby. We heard about some items from the staff that we were unaware of. We look forward to returning. Overall, a wonderful stay! Read less

You spent your working life dreaming about not working. What would it look like? A pool somewhere in the desert. A cold cocktail in your hand, another one on the way. Your wife finally willing to forgive you for decades of being emotionally unavailable, or at least tipsy enough to dull the edge of her anger. You book a weekend at Loews Ventura Canyon. It's expensive, but this was the dream, right? Wrong. From the moment you walk in the lobby you can tell something is off. This isn't why you spent years selling dubious life insurance policies to guys you nominally considered friends. You paid an extra $30 to park, but in fact the parking lot is the size of a 9-hole golf course, and no one else appears to have paid to dock their boat-sized SUVs. You look at the decor. It's drab. Wasn't that painting in the Best Western Niagra Falls, the place with the heart-shaped tub that your parents booked for your honeymoon. You look at the woman behind the check-in counter. You know the look she's giving you. That mix of pity and resentment. She sees straight to the poverty of your imagination, the idea that this musty lobby is the thing you've been striving towards. You continue to the room. The view? The parking lot where you've paid to park your Nissan Sentra. $300 per night, you think, and you try not to look as despairing as you feel. You hold out hope for the pool. That was the vision that drew you here, those perfect TripAdvisor photos of the turquoise water against the red rocks. That is not this pool. It is approximately 170 degrees when you walk outside and the pool speakers are blasting Katy Perry, a name you surprise yourself by knowing. The waiter does not bring you a cocktail because there is no waiter. An elderly woman walks by and you briefly make knowing eye contact. When did we choose this life? At night, you go to the restaurant, which is in fact not a restaurant but a bar with effectively two things on the menu -- some kind of pork and salmon. You're a secular Jew, but ordering pork at a hotel that resembles a fading 1980s protestant church is enough to drive you towards aliyah. When the salmon comes, it is so dry that you're sure it could float, and you briefly consider a hail mary into the pool. It cost $28. You order a beer and the waitress asks for your ID, which you don't have. It's our policy, she says. You look at your hands, its wrinkles developing wrinkles. You ask for a lemonade and try not to curse. You walk back to your room. The carpeting is a shade of gray that reminds you of the time you took your dad to the V.A. The automatic doors don't work. You can see the glint of your Nissan out the window. It is 93 degrees at 10pm. What's supposed to be good about travel, you think, is the brief window in which you don't have to think about your small life, inching towards its sad conclusion. But here you are, looking outside, trying to find the moon amid the streetlights, wondering if the Westin might have had a better view. Read less

My stay was nothing short of amazing. The hospitality from staff was exceptional and meet my expectations of what a resort should be. I am returning soon next time with my family. Hopefully the spa will become available soon.
