Cradled in the Tucson Mountains lies a setting that ignites the imagination and luxurious accommodations that rejuvenate the soul. The new JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort & Spa is situated just west of the area archeologists refer to as the birthplace of Tucson. From its mountainside perch high above Tucson and the breathtaking Sonoran Desert, Starr Pass weaves understated luxury into the rich tapestry of southern Arizona. A brilliant blend of authentic southwest tradition and 21st Century comforts, Starr Pass exists in perfect harmony with its colorful desert environment as though it had been here for eons. This is Tucson’s premier convention destination. And, for the leisure guest, Tucson’s newest and most intriguing resort experience.
