Saturday we went to the Biosphere 2. We were a little disappointed with it or at least our
tour guide. We understand that they are doing great research but in only one
area, something to do with water and its effect on Biosphere 1 (Earth). We felt
that much of the complex was wasted. What do we know…we aren’t scientist.
All-in-all we have enjoyed ...
... organised for both truck and 5th. Ahhh the relief, and a chance at last to relax and sightsee tomorrow. Went next morning to sign up and the owner of the truck decided he didn't want to sell his truck. (A lot on consignment)
So back to the hunt.
... goal was to have it become a state park but with strict protections in place. The tedious process took years. Although the state wanted it badly the state was broke! The state congress finally approved it in 1988. Until then state officials and others who had the need to know we're led to the site blind folded. The code name was Zanadu. After approval and during the development protection was still the focus. It was opened to the public in 2003. Tour numbers are ...

Formal Orientation is over, thank goodness! Enrolled in all my classes today and met my adviser for Linguistics after we had sat through two hours of 10minute talks about nothing much.

Historical Traveler Reviews Windmill Suites of Tucson
Windmill peaceful yet convenient
My family of five (3 small children) stayed here for three nights, and had an excellent experience. The suite was very convenient, with a large bathroom and doors closing the bedroom off from the living room (not all suite hotels do this). The kitchenette area with bar was handy, too (just fridge, microwave, and sink). Everything was clean and well-maintained. The breakfast was pretty good, with waffles and cold items. The location was very nice, a quiet upscale area not too far from downtown and the desert attractions to the west of the city. Altogether a very good value.
A Friendly Place With One-Bedroom Suites
We stayed at this place for two nights in January, after spending one night at the Marriott near the University.
The desk clerk said rooms are 500 square feet. Each has a bedroom, a sitting room, and a small kitchen. The main weakness with the place is that the decor of the rooms is bland--lacking in imagination.
The breakfast is OK, but nothing special.
We were in Tucson when rates are hightest, and we were happy with $155. It is much cheaper at other times of the year.
The hotel is located in a pretty part of Tucson very near several good restaurants. We had a delicious meal at Vivace. P.F. Chang's is also nearby.
Windmill Suites Tucson is an excellent value
This suite hotel is an excellent value, considering price, location (adjacent to an upscale shopping plaza in north part of Tucson), and the excellent service from all the staff; suites are spacious, modestly but comfortably furnished with a recently updated bath. The buffet breakfast included in the price of the room is defintely downscale. Excellent restaurants adjacent to the hotel.
i went here with my grandparents and brother and it was lovely
the continental b fast was great
the pool was a perfect temperature and the setting was fine
the rooms were perfect because it included a small living room that could accomadate up to around 3 people(with a roller bed-super comfy!)
this is a great location and perfect was a out of town getaway
FABULOUS restaurants nearby!
BETTER than home....
Very helpful staff and loved the apartment like accommendations with the hotel atmosphere. YOU choose if you want to go down to their wonderful breakfast buffet or have your breakfast delivered to your room with your free newspaper. Just a first class place to be treated the same!!!
Close to the running, biking trail and they furnish the bike for you.
Plenty of parking and a wonderful little strip mall to wander through.
Great place to stay in Tucson
We spent 5 nights at the Windmill Inn, using it as our base for a vacation in Tucson. Perfect location, excellent facilities, delightful, helpful staff. The breakfast is more than adequate. We highly recommend it.
Windmill Suites as St. Philips Plaza
My husband and I spent 2 nights here while in Tucson. The hotel is located in the northern section of the city. It was a true delight to stay here. The suites have everything you need for an enjoyable stay. Two televisions are very nice for different viewing preferences. There is an extra sink again for convenience. The rooms are nicely appointed. Our window looked out into the courtyard with swimming pool. Very nice. This is definitely a comfortable way to travel. Only the breakfast showed a lack of imagination and was adquate but not great.
The Windmill Inn at Tucson showcases Old Tucson with it's southwestern design, superb views of craggy peaks, and miles long park trail alongside the hotel. The rooms feel spacious and double doors that close out the living room are perfect for traveling families or to watch TV in two different rooms. The pool area is enclosed by the hotel, and offers patios with chairs, tables and umbrellas, and gas bar-b-ques. The pool is heated to over 80-deg, and is large enough to swim short laps. We stayed there twice in January, and found each room squeaky clean. We used the complimentary bicycles, and jogged on the maintained trail along the Rillito River to the large shopping malls. The staff was superbly polite and helpful. The only complaints I have are that the delicious breakfast closes at 9AM. The server started removing food at least 10 minutes before breakfast close on both days, and although he was very polite and willing to retrieve batter for the waffles, the time is hard for travelers going eastward. The desk staff was polte to the point of staying with single customers much too long while others waited in line. With those minor bug-a-boos solveld, this will be a 5-star place to stay. I will use it every time I travel to Tucson.
Do NOT stay here
This hotel reminds me of mental institution, Everything is a dirty white, the carpets are dark and old looking, and my children's televisions are larger than the TVs they have in the rooms...I really dont know how people could reccomend this hotel as one of the better hotels...This was definately not worth the money...If you like an old worn out hotel, then this is your perfect pick, but I sure will not make that mistake again.
I Love the Windmill Inn at St. Phillips Plaza in Tucson, Az. A great location for anyone visiting for pleasure or for business. Central, yet with the feel of being out of town. The hotel has only suites & there's a continental breakfast every morning. The rooms facing N.E. and E. have a wonderful view of the Catalina Mts. St. Phillips Plaza boasts a few of the best restaurants in Tucson and has fabulous & unusual shops & galleries. Within a 1/2 hr, in any direction you go, there's "sightseeing" and great "Western attractions" & be sure to go to "old Tucson Studios". I lived in S. Arizona for over 20 yrs. and mostly in Tucson. I am always "blown away" by the beauty of Southern Arizona and I know I couldn't see all there is to see, not in this lifetime! I've been back east for the past year, thou I was in Tucson 3 weeks ago & stayed at the Windmill Inn, and I'm moving back next month. Can't waite!! Having lived out there for so many years, I know some great places to see, actually I'd make a great "tour guide". Of course the Grand Canyon & Sedona are a must & if you are going that way visit "Arcosanti" near Prescott (when you get off at the Prescott exit, go right passed the gas station, a dirt road behind the gas station will take you around to "Arcosanti", an interesting community which began about 30 yrs. ago, built on Palo Salari's Theory of "Arcology", the intergration of Architecture & Ecology). So, have a great trip!!
