The Hermosa Inn is the epitome of understated elegance. The grounds are well- maintained and lushly landscaped for arid Arizona! The casita that we were given was recently renovated. The room was spacious with a king-sized bed and high end linens. The towels, both in room and poolside, were luxurious. There were several of Lon Megargee's works in our room...

tasteful_10, I love the phrase "Sophisticated Gem". Your detailed description beautifully captures the essence of the Inn. Thank you. We are truly a 'gem' tucked away in the enclave of a residential neighborhood, offering the tranquility and luxury and personalized service that may not be found in a large conference resort. We look forward to having you return as our...

This resort is incredible! Very unique, it's a hidden garden. The rooms are like condos with a rustic touch, decorated very nicely. The grounds are beautiful, customer service was excellent and the restaurant was outdoors with live music. It could not have been any more amazing! Very special place! Delicious food.

This was my first visit to Hermosa Inn and it was great, I just wish I could've brought the sun back with me:) It was very easy to get from the Phoenix airport to the Inn, about 15-20 minutes. The Inn is in a secluded area of Scottsdale, very quiet and peaceful. When we arrived we were promptly looked after...

We splurged to stay three night at this beautiful resort. Our casita was very comfortable and quiet with a hot tub just off the back porch. The flowers, gardens and landscape are spectacular. Lon's, a high end restaurant is right on the property.

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
