The Arizona Inn

Today, most visitors bring tennis racquets or a good book instead of maids, chauffeurs, and steamer trunks. But they still find an inn that feels like a family's country estate. Harpers & Queen travel editor Rene Lecler described it as "a hotel that does not look like one...with superb service and cheerful people...where the only rules are those dictated by good taste and decency." These standards, reflecting the integrity of more than 70 years of continuous Greenway family ownership, have earned the Arizona Inn a place on the National Register of Historic Places and a Zagat rating as one of the 100 best hotels in the country.

Hidden in a residential neighborhood, the resort has no sign to announce its presence. But once past the olive trees shading the entrance, guests discover 14 acres of lush landscaping and private adobe casita-style structures. Brick walls meander past hedged patios to two Har-Tru tennis courts, a modern exercise facility, and a secluded outdoor heated pool.

The inn is as eclectic in decor as it is cosmopolitan in service and clientele. Many distinguished actors, writers, and rock stars return year after year to enjoy their favorites among the 86 individually decorated and beautifully maintained rooms and suites or the two large, luxuriously furnished private residences, and to be cared for in privacy, quiet, and sunshine.

At mealtimes, cocktails, or tea, guests gather in the main building, furnished with a family collection of European antiques and paintings. The Audubon Bar, a popular gathering spot, looks like a set from Casablanca with its grand piano, bamboo chairs, giant fishtail palm, and collection of original Audubon prints. The dining room pairs classic Continental cuisine with simple ladderback chairs made for the inn's 1930 opening, a mahogany Hepplewhite sideboard from Greenway's house in New York, and a high cathedral ceiling.

A smaller dining room features prints from artist George Catlin's famed North American Indian portfolio. In the library, a guest enjoying afternoon tea in front of the fireplace might peruse an early classic edition borrowed from an eighteenth-century breakfront. The guest might be a writer himself.

While the atmosphere at Tucson's oldest resort retains its peaceful Old World charm, a cosmopolitan city has gathered around it. But privacy, comfort, and impeccable service remain the watchwords at this legendary Arizona retreat.

The Arizona Inn is located at 2200 East Elm Street.
