TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Lodge on the Desert is seeking to reorganize its finances under Chapter 11 of the bankruptcy code.  The boutique hotel's owner says operations will continue, and no employees will be laid off.

Lodge Partners, which owns the hacienda-style resort, says it is working on plans to pay off debts after negotiations with its lenders failed.

"The downturn in the economy has greatly affected our business," said owner Dan Donahoe of Lodge Partners in a press release.  "We have tried to come to a resolution with our banker, Wells Fargo, but we have unfortunately not been able to reach an accord."

Lodgeon the Desert, has been serving guests in midtown for 77 years.  In 2009, it underwent a renovation to expand the number of rooms from 35 to 103.

The lodge began as a private residence in 1931.
