Hermosa Inn

Reviewed 8 September 2017

A small Inn located in the city limits and residential neighborhood of Phoenix where the cowboys of yesteryear once lodged and dined at the Inn. Great venue full of history and beautiful lush gardens surround this property. The food was fantastic as was the service. We loved the Halibut dinner and tuna appetizer....okay the desert was great. The staff went out of the way to make sure our anniversary celebration was special for us. We thank them all. This is a must do adventure when here in AZ. Our casita was beautifully decorated and quiet with real cottage feel. Loved it.

Room Tip: Be sure to have dinner at Lon's

Hermosa Inn is one of the best in Paradise Valley. When you enter, you pass through their spectacular cactus gardens - it is breathtakingly beautiful. During the day, go to the pool and enjoy some of the best views in Paradise Valley.

Lons is an amazing restaurant. The carpaccio is a stand-out. The bartenders are also very good with their creations - tell them a flavor, and they will create it.

Room Tip: Mountain views are best

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.

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.

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
