Arizona: Winter stay and extras at Loews in Tucson for $195

Los Angeles Times Daily Travel & Deal blogger

Finding a bargain at Arizona desert resorts is pretty easy during the triple-digit heat of summer, but winter deals present more of a challenge. Enter LivingSocial, with a limited-time offer at Loews Ventana Canyon in Tucson that comes with extras -- and nice temperatures. It costs $195 for a one-night stay that includes spa discounts, food credits and more.

The Deal: LivingSocial loads up the deal by adding parking, Internet and fitness center access onto the discounted price of a luxury room. Other goodies: a $40 credit for food and drinks at the Flying V Bar & Grill, half off for up to two massages at the hotel's spa and a 40% discount on up to two rounds of golf.

When: To get this deal, you have until Tuesday to buy the voucher and must stay at the resort by May 1 (with some blackout dates). Read the fine print on the deal page for more details.

Tested: LivingSocial tallies this deal at more than half the usual cost. I checked on a stay in a luxury room for Feb. 11, for example, and found the price to be $249 plus tax. By the time you add on parking ($9), Internet ($10.95) and some of the credit/discounts, that's likely a fair comparison.
