Hotel Accommodations

All Retreat activities, with the exception of Friday afternoon’s activities, will be held at the Westward Look Wyndham Grand Resort and Spa, which has extended discounted rates ($159 single/double occupancy and $169 for triple/quad occupancy plus tax & resort fee) until September 27, 2023 or once room block has filled. Reservations received after September 27, 2023, are subject to availability at the Resort’s prevailing rate.

To make a reservation, you can either do so online or call by contacting Westward Look Resort’s group reservation specialist Hilary Lietz at (520) 917-2465, and be sure to let them know you are with the Sierra Tucson Annual Retreat. Westward Look has sold out in the past, so it is a good idea to reserve your room as soon as possible! When making reservations, ask about the cancellation policy so as not to be charged a night’s stay if you need to cancel.
