I am so glad I found this Inn! It is beautifully tucked away while still being close enough to the action of Scottsdale. Our room was clean, beautiful and relaxing. The grounds were well kept. The first impression of the guest services and valet/bellhop was much appreciated. We enjoyed our late night snack/drink at Lon's last drop, our breakfast and Lon's and our time spent at the pool. The shower products provided a spa-like experience and the rooms were kept impeccably clean. I can't believe we scored with their "summer in paradise" special. We will certainly be back! The only thing I may recommend is providing different coffee for guests in your lobby. Kuerig K cups are fine in the room, but I wish something a little more unique/decadent was provided. Great stay overall!

Room Tip: We were upgraded to the Garden View Casita which I believe to be one of the more quiet areas of the...

Alexa B,

Thank you for your lovely review of The Hermosa. We are so glad you found our hidden gem nestled in the quiet, residential neighborhood of Paradise Valley. The "Summer In Paradise" special runs through the end of September. If you're not quite ready to say good-bye to summer, maybe you can sneak away to have one more stay in paradise! We will certainly take into consideration your recommendation for a bit more decadent offerings in the lobby. Thank you and hope to see you back again soon.

After the first night if the front desk had put a long term lease in front of my wife I think she would have signed it. We really loved the room (156) and all the secluded charm this hotel exudes. A Labor Day weekend staycation that finished the summer off grandly. We had stayed as guests 7 years prior and a recent magazine article caught my eye when it discussed the recent 5 million renovation and expansion. Curious what 5 million buys these days, reservations were made at super summer rates. Rm 156 is one of the brand new10 deluxe hideaway casitas. 700 square feet it seemed bigger in person and the retractable skylight ceiling reminder me of Chase Field. Now all you need to do is add some sexy music to its retraction process.
Huge bathroom, natural light abundant, wood plank flooring, beehive fireplace in the corner, canopy bed with great mattress and linens. Tons of dresser space for your personal items. A walk in closet, room safe and it just goes on and on. I told you my wife would have signed that lease.....
Jean at the front desk was exceptional. Housekeeping did a fantastic job. Any requests were all addressed promptly. Very professional and friendly staff. They like their jobs here and who can blame them working in a paradise oasis with the landscaping full of flowers, trees and shrubbery. 7 years ago we enjoyed our stay here. Now with these improvements and staff, this hotel enters the upper echelon occupied only by Royal Palms and Fours Seasons Troon North. Highly recommend this fine boutique hotel in beautiful Paradise Valley, Arizona.

Room Tip: 43 total rooms and any and all are good choices.

We were upgraded to a Grande and Deluxe Casita (summer special) - amazing spacious rooms with the old feel - so comfortable and quiet. The grounds are exquisite, the food and service fantastic. This is our 4th stay there and have never been disappointed. True relaxation if you choose to stay on the property and so close to so much Scottsdale/Phoenix has to offer.

Room Tip: All rooms are wonderful - just depends on how much space you like.

This is a wonderful place if you'd like something unique and relaxing. Rooms were comfortable (we were in the original suites) and they had lots of character. Lon's has great food - both breakfast and dinner were fabulous. The bar was nice, however, they do not have a blender and do not make frozen drinks. So don't expect a nice frozen daiquiri at the pool (and we did). Never heard of a nice resort that chose to eliminate frozen drinks from their bar menu! I also feel compelled to warn guests that want to spend their time at the pool that this pool is NOT conducive to bare feet! I burned my feet walking to the pool steps the first time I got in. There is no real cool decking that edges the pool. And worse than that, they chose to use artificial grass around their pool. Apparently, no one clued them in that artificial grass is just as hot (if not hotter) than a concrete sidewalk. So unless your lounge chair is in the shade, do not step foot on that grass without flip flops or pool shoes. My husband and I had to share his flip flops (as mine were not really water-friendly) and had to tag team all afternoon to get in and out of the pool. Yes, it was THAT bad. So bring water shoes. You'll be very sorry if you don't. Sorry, Hermosa Inn - this is a major design flaw.

Gail D,

Thank you for your review. I will make sure to pass along your comments to our Director of F&B and Chef regarding the drink menu. I was so sorry to hear about your feet. Unfortunately when the temps climb well over 100 degrees, cool deck doesn't stay as cool as we'd all like. We do carry flip flops in our boutique. Had I known that you didn't have any, I would have made sure to have given you a pair. We do hope that we can welcome you back again in the future.

This is our second time to the Hermosa and we will definitely return. The Hermosa is a boutique hotel with a rich history. Once on the grounds, you forget you are only a short drive to plenty of shopping and restaurants.
The staff is always wonderful, very friendly and accommodating. Jessica, at the pool, was a rock star!
The grounds are beautiful and very nicely maintained.
Rooms are really nice. Good size, well appointed, comfortable beds and pillows. Each has a nice outside sitting area.
The on-site restaurant, Lon's, is excellent. We were with a group of friends and had scheduled a wine paired dinner in the wine cellar. What a great experience. The food, wine and especially the service from Vincent and Pedro were all first rate.
Hot in the Phoenix area this time of year, but great deals and no crowds Seemed like our group had the pool to ourselves throughout our stay
Great hotel for a weekend escape.

Room Tip: All of the rooms looked great

I am so glad you enjoyed your recent return visit to The Hermosa and Lon's and that everything was to your liking. I will make sure to pass along your comments to our staff who work hard to provide the stellar service that you experienced. You are so right - our Summer In Paradise package is a great deal - and it's available through September - just in case you want to take one more quick getaway! Thank you for your review and your continuing patronage.

The 43 newly renovated guest casitas are nestled in a garden setting with breathtaking vistas of the lush desert and Camelback Mountain.

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
