This is a surprisingly good restaurant for a Hotel. There is great variety of food, a tasting menu, and a casual vibe. Prices are high --but not ridiculous (especially for a hotel breakfast). If you want to go light you can order a fruit yogurt...More

We stayed at the Inn over the Christmas holiday and chose to have Christmas dinner at the Inn. Could not have been more pleased. It is a fixed price menu with adequate choices that should please just about everyone. I had roasted turkey with the...More

Yet another highly rated restaurant in Tucson that we were excited to try during our visit. The first issue we ran into was how long it took us to be seated. We were a bit early, and expected to wait, but had to wait half...More
