Spanish Colonial in style, Hacienda del Sol was inspired by the Moorish architecture of the 18th and 19th centuries. Through the gated mission-style entrance, you are greeted by tranquil gardens, a backdrop of unspoiled desert landscape and a dramatic view of the majestic Santa Catalina Mountains. In 1999, restoration and renovation of all 30 rooms and suites was completed. No two rooms are alike, and each is adorned with eccentric surprises, from hand-forged iron and copper headboards to original artwork and custom-designed furniture. The Inn’s courtyard and porches offer a quiet place to relax. With large terraces for al fresco dining, its restaurant, “The Grill,” is one of Tucson’s best. Legendary patrons such as Katharine Hepburn, Spencer Tracy, John Wayne, and Howard Hughes enjoyed the comforts here. The magical setting has been, and remains, the very cornerstone of Hacienda del Sol.
