    We had our rehearsal dinner at Lodge on the Desert and it was amazing. We loved the dinner. The lawn in the middle of the hotel was perfect for this size of party and everyone loved the food. Half of our guests stayed at the Lodge and everyone loved it. A lot of them plan to return for a vacation!

    Lodge on the Desert has been completely remodeled in recent years, and is truly a great, mid-town location to host a wedding or other event. I have worked with many couples over the years who have held their weddings at the Lodge and they have been quite pleased. Invitation Express, Tucson
