We stayed at the Hermosa Inn for a quick trip to Arizona for a family member's milestone birthday. It's been a few years since we stayed at the Hermosa Inn, and I'm happy to say that our visit was as enjoyable as the prior visit. We stayed in Room 108, a Deluxe Casita.

We spent 2 nights at the Hermosa Inn because we were seeing a performance at the Scottsdale center for the performing arts. It was a great experience. The facility is lovely. We spent a delightful afternoon at the pool. It is a very laid back inn. The landscaping is so beautiful. I would definitely stay again.

Despite traveling to Phoenix annually and picking a new hotel for each visit, we hadn't heard of this spot until a friend hosted a party here over the weekend. Its wonderfully unassuming, in a quiet part of town amongst a suburban neighborhood. The hotel only had 30ish rooms and service was really great. Check in was easy and our room... More

My group loved this location. It is private and just the perfect size for a small board meeting. We will definitely be back. David took such great care of us for the meeting. The rooms are so comfortable. Lon's the restaurant is superior to most we have experienced.

We spent just one night at the Hermosa Inn and it was delightful. Truly a first-class experience.

My fiancé stayed here for a two night holiday treat, and what a treat it was. Although quite spend-y, it's definitely worth it for those special occasions deserving of a splurge.

If I had to say one thing that sets the Hermosa Inn apart, it would be the beautiful desert grounds that surround the rooms. If you want a relaxing, low key place to stay it is great.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ranked among the top hotels in the Southwest, the AAA Four Diamond Hermosa Inn is a jewel of a hideaway surrounded by an exclusive neighborhood in Paradise Valley, and minutes from Scottsdale and its many attractions. Handcrafted in the 1930s by cowboy artist Lon Megargee as his residence and art studio, the Inn's adobe architecture has kept its "authentic Arizona" character and charm. The 43 newly renovated guest casitas are nestled in a garden setting with breathtaking vistas of the lush desert and Camelback Mountain. Accommodations reflect the southwestern design of the original Casa Hermosa (beautiful house) and most include deep soaking tubs, beehive fireplaces and private patios. The culinary centerpiece is LON's at the Hermosa, a AAA Four Diamond restaurant with a Best of Award of Excellence from Wine Spectator serving globally inspired Arizona fare. The restaurant is complemented by a subterranean wine cellar, a celebrated outdoor dining patio, and its bar and casual dining counterpart LON's Last Drop, named after one of Megargee's iconic paintings, many of which are displayed throughout the resort. ... more   less
