Some hotels you just want to rate 5 because you like them and you want them to do well. I stayed at Hermosa for one night and found it very Zen. Particularly since it was a July, boiling hot and off season. No people. Ah, paradise. you can see a great deal of money and effort has been spent in... More

My husband and I spent a night at the Hermosa Inn on our way to southern Utah recently and we would have been very content to spend a couple more days there. The casitas, set in attractive desert landscape, are beautiful, comfortable and well appointed. The grounds are gorgeous with wonderful local sculptures and loads of wildlife. We enjoyed relaxing...

We've been at this hotel 7 times. We've stayed at the Grande Casita, Deluxe casita and the casita as well. All of them are great, perfectly well maintained and clean. Considering the hot weather in the area , it's always great having a small refrigerator in the room. The complimentary coffee machine brews an excellent coffee. The bathroom amenities are... More

If you are looking for a smaller quieter boutique hotel experience relatively near the Phoenix airport then you might wan to give this a try. Good pool service, bar and restaurant facilities with old time cowboy live guiter entertainment at dinner hours. Very nice grounds and conveniently situated, good for a single or a few nights.

The Hermosa Inn is a wonderful boutique hotel located in the heart of Scottsdale, very close to Camelback Mountain; Old Town and a number of great restaurants are also very close by. We’re repeat customers at this hotel and particularly like to rent the 2BR standalone villas. Each bedroom and bathroom is quite large, with one suite having a very... More

This was our 3rd visit to the casitas of Hermosa Inn. These charming attached bungalos are pseudo-rustic in decor. This time, I found the room dark and poorly lit. There were few appliance opportunities for charging the everpresent smart phones, tablets, etc.(Bring your own multi-outlet extension cord). Neat and clean (we did have to remind the desk on Mothers Day... More

Hotels in Phoenix seem to be rather expensive, but this one was worth the money. I'm pleased we went there rather than some anonymous resort hotel. The setting was really lovely with the cactus gardens and the scuplture all around. We were lucky as well in April as the garden was colourful. We had a casita which was well equipped.... More

Everything at this hotel was above and beyond what we expected. A lot of care and love has been put into the Hermosa. We had a wonderful stay and can't wait to come back. We are very happy to have found it.

Great classic Arizona patio. Good food, good drinks and good entertainment on Thursday and Saturday nights. Staff very attentive and casual friendly. We have been coming to Phoenix for years and were disappointed that we only found the patio here this year. Looking forward to a return visit.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hermosa Inn is a jewel of a hideaway in the heart of the Valley; minutes from Scottsdale, yet surrounded by an exclusive neighborhood in Paradise Valley. Originally hand-crafted in the 1930’s by cowboy artist Lon Megargee as his private residence, the Inn’s adobe architecture has kept its “old Arizona” character and charm. All 34 casitas are surrounded by spectacular landscaping and beautiful desert vistas. The $2 million remodel of the accommodations retains the legendary personality and intimate atmosphere of the original hacienda, while enhancing the accommodations with upgraded amenities for a more luxurious experience. The culinary centerpiece of the Inn is Lon’s at the Hermosa, the celebrated Four Diamond restaurant renowned for “artful American” cuisine, which is complemented by the Last Drop Bar, aptly named after one of the many paintings by Megargee that can be seen throughout the historic inn. ... more   less
