~Baseball Fans Receive Special Savings through March 31, 2009 to Preview Cactus League Teams during Spring Training~



TUCSON, Ariz. February 24, 2009 – Following the winter lull, baseball season is almost in full swing.  For those who just can’t wait for Opening Day, Westward Look Resort has the perfect substitute - spring training!  Fans won’t miss a minute of the action with Westward Look Resort’s Spring Training Rates, available for travel between February 13 – March 31, 2009.  Rates for spring training start at $180 per night for five-night stays or $171 for seven-night stays and include accommodations in newly renovated suite-sized rooms and all fees and taxes. 

Located in Tucson, Ariz., the 80-acre resort is just minutes away from Cactus League stadiums such as Tucson Electric Park, hosting the Arizona Diamondbacks and Hi Corbett Field, the spring home of the Colorado Rockies.  Throughout spring training, Cactus League teams – such as the Chicago Cubs, Cleveland Indians, Seattle Mariners and Los Angeles Dodgers – will visit Tucson to square off with home teams.

 After a long day of rooting for a favorite team at Tucson Electric Park or Corbett Field, guests can indulge in the many amenities offered at Westward Look Resort.  With two award-winning restaurants on property, Chef James Wallace’s gourmet cuisine will be an exciting addition to standard stadium fare.   After nine-innings, fans seeking added entertainment will be delighted by both the on- and off-site resort activities, including: tennis courts, swimming pools, hiking trails, horseback riding, Tucson Botanical Garden, Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum and Saguaro National Park.  For those seeking rest and relaxation after game day, a signature treatment at the Sonoran Spa will provide the perfect ‘seventh-inning stretch.’

This spring, in addition to special savings, guests will be treated to Westward Look Resort’s new look.  With updates to the main lobby, guest rooms and meeting spaces, the resort has been revamped to bring elements of the outside, in.  Drawing inspiration from the desert landscape, Westward Look Resort features new rich gold hues, decadent cream colors and dark wood accents to mimic that of the outdoors.  Each renovated guest room has been appointed with a pillow-top mattresses, a menu of all-natural bedding, Hi-Speed wireless Internet access and 42-inch HD plasma televisions.
