Originally the 1912 homestead of William and Mary Watson, this laid-back lodging with gorgeous city views and desert gardens has Southwestern character and all the amenities you expect at a major resort. The Watsons' original living room, with beautiful, dried ocotillo branches draped along the ceiling and antique furnishings, is now a comfortable library-lounge. The couple probably never envisioned anything like the Sonoran Spa, with hot desert-stone massages and three-mud body masks. Spacious rooms have wrought-iron beds and Mission-style furniture.

Stayed 3 nights in early June. The room was spacious, newly remodeled, clean and had a large bath. It had a nice small patio complete with tables/chairs outside the room. The grounds were very clean and always bustling with workers. Our rate included breakfast at Gold, and the food and service were great. The main pool area was just the right size, with poolside food and beverage service. Most employees we encountered had a smile and a "hello".
We definitely will return.
