Historical Traveler Reviews Omni Tucson National Resort
Okay for golfers
I have to agree with the person from Tulsa, OK. I looked forward to a nice relaxing bubble bath in a nice tub, but that's not what I got. The tub was tiny and too much space was taken up for the walk-in closet. I also wasn't crazy about the vanity outside the bathroom. The room did have a nice view with balcony over looking the golf course. The lobby and spa facility was very nice though.
Very Relaxing Time
Just spent the holiday weekend at the Omni and had a wonderful time! We upgraded to the Haciendas and am so glad we did. Beatiful little apartment style house. We had plenty of room a little kitchen and lots of beautiful patio room. We also enjoyed the more private pool at the tennis courts and spent an entire day there between the volleyball, swimming, hot tubbing and tennis, we were able to keep ourselves and our 3 kids occupied for most of the day. We also spent time at the more popular "main" pool but it felt really crowded. The girls passing out the ice water were a wonderful asset, very welcomed in our hot weather. We had a nice lunch at the cabana bar, prices comparable to the Hotel Del Cornonado. A $6.00 hot dog, $10.00 hamburger and $6 - 7.00 for drinks. Not bad all-in-all. My only complaint is that the maid service is a little pushy on trying to get in to clean up. We were approached at least 5 times one morning for service. I always thought that Do Not Disturb meant just that. We will go back again, as long as we get the same smoking rates through Expedia.
We recently spent 5 days at the Omni Tucson National Golf Resport and have nothing but great things to say in response. I was hesitant about this trip for two reasons: 1) We were going there on a Hotwire rate, which can sometimes result in a lesser quality room and service, and 2) We weren't going on a golf vacation - but were in Tucson for a week of hiking in the desert and surrounding mountains. We were impressed initially by our room - spacious, a great location with a fabulous view of the Catalina Mountains. But what really sets this place apart is the service - it was amazing. From the valets and the bell desk, to the restaurant workers and housekeeping: everyone went out of their way to make us comfortable. If you ever have an opportunity to stay in this wonderful resort - jump at it!
Had the best time of my life. I was married at the Omni and I will never forget the experience. It is a first class operation with incredible rooms to die for. The staff was great and all of our family stayed. We will all return
The golf package was a great value
My wife and I stayed at the Omni right after Christmas 2003 on a golf package. It was a great value for the Tucson area. The rooms are needing some work - the wallpaper was falling off the bathroom walls.
The shower head was pitiful. The room was large and very clean.
The golf course was great - we made our tee times weeks ahead and had no trouble. Interesting 27 holes with lots of variety, very well maintained golf course. I will go back.
Lovely link location
This is a no-risk selection with first-class accommodations. The suites are spacious & attractive with comfortable bedding, a patio with a great view of the course, and plenty of amenities. The golf was challenging with a choice of 3 nines. The long, narrow, downhill par 5 on the backside was my favorite - superb view. The clubhouse bar/grill at the turn is a great place to catch a tasty meal and quaff an ale whilst lounging on the patio. At night, it has enough entertainment to keep you occupied, especially after a long day. After a round, the ample spa beckons with its creature comforts - the pink grapefruit shampoo is great - and promise of relaxation. You pay a daily fee for use of the spa anyway, and it is well worth the price. The food at the restaurant wasn't fabulous, but good nonetheless. The staff is excellent and accommodating. I've stayed here three times - it's one of my favorite couple's get-aways. Leave the kids at home.
Omni service? Golfers beware.
First, let me say that the rooms and grounds of the Resort are first class. The same can be said of the Spa and Fitness facilities. After 2 stays here though, I am wondering what is meant by "Omni Service".
Golfers beware, this facility books several events and also has members. This makes it nearly impossible to get desired tee times. If your coming for the golf, stay somewhere less expensive and just golf here. You will get the same afternoon tee times that guests spending large amounts of money at the Resort will. Demand that you are "pre"concierneged, otherwise you will arrive to 0 availabilty for spa treatments and golf.
Stayed here in early May- 2 nights during the week and it was great. Spa treatments were fabulous. The room was enourmous ! And very well decorated The restaurants were all good, and the service at each was outstanding. Beautifully groomed grounds, our room looked out over the desert and we were awoken by a pack of Coyotes at dawn. Definitely recomended
Love your Welcome Center Girl!!!
I just wanted to comment on your Welcome Center Girl. Her name is Jamie and she is on duty in the afternoons. What a wonderful, pleasant, happy person she is! She waves and smiles at everyone and is so helpful and kind.I believe it's very hard to find someone like that.... if I were you, I'd do everything to KEEP her!!
Splendid, but don't bring bubblebath!
Just spent 5 nights here, overall a lovely experience. Beautiful, well-maintained grounds & landscaping. Service was first-class, as expected. Concierge (Johhny) was very friendly & helpful with recommendations and last-minute reservations. Spa was excellent; staff top-notch & friendly, massage: Clarissa!) facilities clean & well-kept, services terrific. The main pool area lovely, plenty of fresh towels, cabana service nice, but piped in music too loud--don't park by the hidden speakers. We stayed in a hacienda, large, nicely furnished, comfortable, quiet, great linens. Large half-walled patio, but the haciendas & casitas are down in a valley and the only view you have is a courtyard one, a convergence of everyone else's patio. Though the landscaping is nice, if you're looking for a view, you might be better off in one of the hotel rooms up above. One disappointment, minor for some but major for others. Curiously, though the bathroom/dressing area is very large with great granite vanities, the toilet and tub are a self-contained afterthought in a little closet-size semi-room with an open ceiling. The shower/tub combo is something you might expect at a chain-motel; dark and dreary enough for a quick shower with a flashlight but not much else. Both husband and wife disliked this equally. Not sure what Omni was thinking, but it wasn't about how much some people expect a luxurious tub at a luxury resort. With all the thought and care which went into everything else, it's surprising. Anyway, Tucson is a great place for relaxing, and this is another one of the really fine resorts available, so we highly recommend it with the caveat on view and the curious tub arrangement.
