Discover our Tucson Neighborhood
Twelve thousand years ago, it was a Native American village by the name of “stukshon.” Loosely translated, it means, “springs from the foot of the black hill.” Which is exactly what Tucson does. Situated along the banks of the Santa Cruz River and bordered by both the Sonoran Desert and the Catalina Mountains, Tucson owes much of its powerful allure to its ancient land, heritage, and spirituality.
Here at Loews Ventana Canyon, you will discover the beauty of the Sonoran landscape, the complexity of the stars, and the sophistication of the city of Tucson. So explore the great outdoors on the resort's beautiful nature trail, or hike Sabino Canyon, just minutes from our hotel.
