We booked our staycation at the Hermosa Inn on the advice of good friends and were absolutely thrilled with the tranquil ambiance of this place. We dined in the restaurant three times and each time, the food and service exceeded our expectations. We were even offered a tour of the wine cellar one night and it was the highlight of...

This hotel is perfect for a quiet and relaxing holiday.

I found the Inn to be exquisite with individual casitas on a historic site. Lon's the restaurant was well deserving of its rating and our server was a treat.

Wonderful setting. "Zen like" as my wife put it. Convenient as it is close to the airport. Great rooms but short on privacy if it is fully booked. Skip the restaurant as you will find it pricey and underwhelming (that goes for the service too). Spend two nights there to enjoy the setting. The most you would want to do...

We have stayed at the Hermosa Inn multiple times over the last handful of years. Everything about the place is relaxing and enjoyable. The small scale and beautiful grounds, the architecture of the original house, the quality of the rooms, all contribute to the experience.

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
