Omni Tucson National Resort

Spectacular views, succulent food, an authentic Southwestern setting, 36 holes of championship golf and Tucson’s only 4 Star Mobil rated spa are just a few of the particulars that make the Omni Tucson National Resort one of America’s most renowned destinations.

Long considered the area’s premier property, Tucson National wasn’t content relying on its stellar reputation. Instead, ownership decided to undertake a multi-million dollar improvement project to propel the resort into a new era of excellence.

Over the past five years the resort has unveiled a second 18-hole championship golf course on its grounds. The desert-style Sonoran Course, designed by prominent PGA and Champions Tour player Tom Lehman and his team, was introduced as a complement to the parkland-style Catalina Course, which played host to the long-running Chrysler Classic of Tucson.

Shortly thereafter, Tucson National announced plans to enhance the resort component of its operation by building luxurious custom-designed Mountain Vista guestrooms, a new 7,500-square-foot ballroom, plus a number of new courtyards and patios that would incorporate waterfalls, fire pits, native rock formations and lush desert plantings to create a stylish “desert chic” motif.

With the addition of 79 Mountain Vista rooms, all of which will blend elegant fixtures and amenities with impressive views of the Sonoran or Catalina golf courses, Santa Catalina Mountains, pool areas or serene courtyards, the Omni Tucson National now offers a selection of 279 guest rooms.

The resort’s highly-regarded spa was also enhanced. The 15,000-square-foot spa that Mobil Travel recently rated among the 84 best in the nation is known for its enchanting ambiance and refined service. Guests are now offered expanded areas for relaxation, treatments and well-being. In addition to reinvigorating body treatments, herbal wraps and facials, the Spa at Omni Tucson National Resort features a variety of hot stone massages, including its signature Desert Stone Massage. Whether your aim is to replenish after a long day of golf, re-energize for a special event, or pamper after a day of hard work, the Spa at Omni Tucson National is an ideal escape.

The latest phase of Tucson National’s transformation arrived earlier this year in the form of a captivating culinary experience – the award-winning Bob’s Steak & Chop House. Ranked as one of the top steakhouses in the U.S., Bob’s is a traditional American prime steakhouse. The dining experience combines comfortable elegance, a lively atmosphere, big drinks, an extensive list of fi ne wines and large cuts of the finest prime steaks, chops and seafood.

Members and guests can also enjoy outdoor dining at Legends Bar & Grill and an array of nightlife options including an eclectic wine bar and the California Café.

The custom designed, bi-level member locker salon, adorned with detailed millwork and fine finishes, creates the personalized experience expected in upscale clubs. The art display from the club’s history showcases its nostalgic character. The new exclusive members-only lounge above the 18th green offers a luxurious setting for members to enjoy with flat screen TVs and oversized furnishings.

But the crown jewel of Tucson National’s impressive renovation project is a dramatic arrival experience with sweeping views of the surrounding terrain. A new main lobby and lounge will welcome guests with spectacular water features, fireplaces and scenic desert landscaping, all set against a backdrop of the nearby mountains and styled in warm Southwestern hues.

“We are thrilled to announce the transformation of the Omni Tucson National Resort,” said Mike Deitemeyer, president of Omni Hotels. “The enhancements will create an unparalleled retreat and the ultimate sensory experience for travelers in the desert Southwest looking for everything from an intimate escape for family or friends to a distinct business setting.”

For meeting planners and groups, another significant addition will be the new Grand Ballroom, which will offer six configuration options. The Grand Ballroom will complement the existing Papago and Hopi ballrooms, allowing for increased meeting and conference space.

The newly designed meeting rooms offer natural lighting, outdoor terraces with fairway and mountain views, plus convenient access to the business center, conference office and reception area. Nestled in the foothills of the majestic Santa Catalina Mountains and inspired by the natural environment and scenic desert setting, the conference venues at Tucson National offer the ideal meeting destination.

As 2009 draws to a close, this ambitious $90 million renovation project will reach its conclusion and Arizona’s most renowned overnight experience will once again redefine the expectations of golf resort guests across the Grand Canyon State.
