The first thing you notice of the property is that, while easy to reach and centrally located, its very serene and feels many miles away from the hustle and traffic of Scottsdale or central Phoenix. The grounds are a beautiful, ranch style lay out with a nice pool and a bar/restaurant/lounge. In addition to the usual, yet very attractive, desert... More

We drive back and forth from California to New Mexico and have stayed at many places. We happened upon this gorgeous property at the suggestion of Snique Away. So glad we did. The property is beautiful and the casitas are roomy, well-appointed and luxurious. We will absolutely stay here during our road-tripping through Arizona.

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
