Hacienda Del Sol Guest Ranch Resort
The story began in 1929, when John and Helen Murphey created Hacienda del Sol; a desert retreat inspired by early Moorish architecture. In 1944, Hacienda Del Sol was converted into a guest ranch that immediately attracted the Silver Screen’s most popular stars. Legend has it that the Hacienda’s Casita Grande was a favorite romantic hideaway of Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn. Leading men John Wayne and Clark Gable both signed their names to the hotel’s illustrious guestbook. Howard Hughes, who owned a filming studio in Tucson at the time, found comfort and privacy within the walls of the Hacienda.Today, the story continues, with simple pleasures, understated elegance, and charming hospitality at this classic Arizona inn. “The Soul of Tucson in the Heart of the Foothills” bespeaks the desire of its Tucson owners to nurture the beauty and authenticity of this special property. Hacienda Del Sol is included in the National Registry of Historic Places in Arizona, and is pleased to be a member of Historic Hotels of America.
