The Hermosa Inn is not your "A" typical Inn, but that's what makes it special. It comes with charm and uniqueness that makes you feel like a modern cowboy living in the southwest.
The property is in a residential part of Paradise Valley, just minutes away from Scottsdale. It was originally designed and built by cowboy artist Lon Megargee in the 1930s as his private residence. There really isn't a main building where all the rooms are located. The rooms are sprinkled throughout the property as casitas. Many sit alone, but some are nestled together in small groups.
The rooms are comfortable and have a traditional Southwest design. Our casita was one of the oldest and had tons of charm. The casita had a full wall of closets with plenty of storage for hanging and folded items. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was efficient with a mexican tile floor, vanity top and walk-in shower keeping with the southwest theme. The bathroom even had a skylight for added light in the shower.
The pool isn't big, but it's perfect for lounging around and cooling off during HOT days. Didn't have a chance to eat at Lon's, but everyone who had said the food was great. Just plan on spending a few bucks.
If you like something a little off main street with rustic luxury and charm, check out Hermosa Inn next time you're in Phoenix.
- 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
