For Room Reservations

The Ritz-Carlton Dove Mountain
15000 North Secret Springs Drive, Marana, Arizona 85658 USA

The July 13, 2012* deadline for room reservations at the negotiated rate

has passed. In addition, the hotel is fully committed for Tuesday August

14 and Wednesday August 15. The hotel is unable to accommodate any

new requests for these dates at any rate.

During the room reservation process, you may encounter two additional fees that DO NOT apply to LSST guests during AHM.

  • $35 per night Resort Activity Package

  • $20 per night overnight parking charge

The $35 per night resort fee WILL NOT BE CHARGED to LSST guests.

The $20 per night parking fee WILL NOT BE CHARGED if you self-park. If you choose to use valet service, the parking fee will be charged at a discounted rate of $15 per night.

By Phone. You can reserve accommodations by calling reservations at 1-800-686-2747. You must mention the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope Meeting and the room will be blocked into the group rate of $145 for a Deluxe Guest Room.

On-Line. If you prefer to book online go to,
select the dates between August 12th- 20th, and enter the special group code: LSTLSTA when making your reservation.

The Deluxe Guest Room rate of $145 includes in-room internet, a continental breakfast for the AHM Attendee (family members do not receive a complimentary breakfast), and complimentary fitness center admittance.  The LSST rate for this meeting is good three days prior and three days post (these days would not be reimbursed by LSSTC). For those making reservations pre and/or post the August 13th – 17th dates, please call the Ritz-Carlton at 1-800-686-2747 and mention the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope Meeting. 

Meals: LSSTC will provide breakfast and lunch Monday – Friday, plus dinner on Tuesday.  That leaves you three dinners (Monday, Wednesday, Thursday) which can be eaten at the resort or two miles down the road at the closest restaurant.  Dinner costs cannot exceed the per diem rate of $56.00. Mini-bar refrigerators in the room are not appropriate for food; special arrangements for refrigerators can be made for medications and baby formula.

Please Note: Because the setting is so lovely, families would be welcome (although LSSTC only pays attendee’s costs).  We’re planning a non-traditional agenda that operates outside a traditional 8 to 5 workday to maximize productivity while allowing time to enjoy the facilities, your family and unique Tucson August weather.

Reservations must be made by Friday, July 13, 2012. It is the Hotel’s option to accept reservations made after this date at the Group Room Rates.
