Westin La Paloma Resort and Spa

Guests of the Westin La Paloma Resort and Spa in Tucson, Arizona along Sunrise Dr. in the Foothills are allowed to use the facilities of the nearby country club, which has a 27-hole Jack Nicholson-designed golf course.

The rooms here ($199-$319; $109-$159 in the summer) are spacious and have private patios looking our over the desert, huge sink-in beds, wireless Internet, and some have fire places and sunken spa tubs. The nearby Elizabeth Arden Red Salon and Spa will pamper you silly after you platy a few sets on one of 10 championship tennis courts. There are also indoor racquetball courts, a huge pool area, pilaties and yoga studios and an exercise room.

The Westin La Paloma, a Certified Green Resort, strives to conserve water and energy. If you choose to skip daily housekeeping services of your room you will be rewarded with a $5 voucher per day to be used at participating food and beverage outlets.

Janos, one of the best restaurants in the state, is on-site at the Westin La Paloma.  The chef, Janos Wilder, fuses French culinary ideals with the more traditional flavors of the Southwest. Janos focuses on using local, sustainable ingredients and this Tucson resort restaurant works with local farmers as well as Native Seeds to find the best ways to meet those criteria. For a more relaxed dining experience you can try the adjacent J Bar, also owned and run by Janos Wilder.

The Westin La Paloma Resort maintains a variety of sustainable practices and has been designated a Certified Green resort.

Just as there are other Tucson Resort Summer Specials, you will find some good packages and specials at La Paloma, especially during the hot part of the year.
