This is one of the best kept secrets in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area. It's almost like coming home. The staff is so friendly and attentive. The area around the property is great for walking or biking with views of some mega mansions. This was for our anniversary and our casita had a welcoming plate of chocolate covered strawberries waiting. Fresh baked...

The Hermosa Inn is a little piece of paradise in Paradise Valley. We stayed here twice recently, for four nights at the beginning of our three week trip to Arizona and New Mexico and then again for three nights at the end. Its hard to believe that only minutes from the hustle and traffic of Camelback Road you arrive at...

Last September we stayed at the Hermosa Inn and decided to return for another visit at the end of April. It is hard to believe that this colorful oasis is only a 20 minute drive from the Phoenix Airport! The impeccable grounds are spectacular, the rooms so welcoming and charming and the restaurant, Lon's, incredible.The staff are friendly and helpful....

We ended our tour of Sedona and the Grand Canyon with a one-night stay at the lovely Hermosa Inn. We all wish we could have extended our stay. From the truly warm welcome and beautiful grounds to the luxurious yet serene casitas, we found a little piece of paradise. And if you're foodie, Lon's is not to be missed. Everything...

This was our first stay at the Hermosa Inn. We were interested in a quiet, intimate setting (someplace too small for most conferences and too laid-back to attract most families with kids); the Hermosa Inn was the perfect choice! We stayed in a Deluxe Casita--very comfortable, spacious, and quiet with a nice patio looking out on a garden and nearby...

From the time you park your car, you realize that you are in for a pleasant experience. Beautiful gardens and walkways throughout the property express nothing but serenity.

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...

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.

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
