My husband and I decided to celebrate our 30 year anniversary with a stay-cation at The Hermosa Inn. We have stayed there before and really loved it. This time we booked a casita for the hot Labor Day weekend. We arrived and were booked into a very nice, large room in the back of the property. However, the A/C did... More

We stayed here last year and had a great time, even though the Inn did not acknowledge our anniversary. This year they got it right. We had a note and chocolate strawberries and sparkling wine in our room. We stayed in the same room as last year, a deluxe casita (no.4.) In my opinion, the deluxe casitas are more charming... More

I was here for week in June, onethe most delicious, beautiful & peaceful stays I've ever experienced. Nestled in a high-end residential area it truly is a best kept secret. Grounds are beautiful. Sliders, salads & Moscow Mules were excellent at the tiny bar to the left of the on site restaurant. I came in another day and ordered food... More

Nice quiet place to stay. Very few children and a great restaurant on grounds. Also a beautiful pool. Great place to relax for a getaway. Only negative was restaurant was closed one night for a corporate event and we did not know that ahead of time. Would highly recommend and return in a heartbeat!

We stayed here in July in the +45 C and the Hermosa was our saving grace. Since it was summer we got a great deal on a Grand Casita. It was wonderful and being summer not crowded so most evenings we were at the pool by ourselves. Glorious. We also ate at the Property restaurant Lon's and it was very... More

Stayed her on a personal trip. Feels secluded and romantic. Quiet and clean with rooms that seem are in top condition. Service is nice but unobtrusive. Great place to take your significant other, honeymoon, wedding night, etc.

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...

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
