I just got back from a few days at the Hermosa Inn. I had a great room - #108 - at the back of the property. Nice big room, really (!) comfortable bed, big bathroom with separate shower and tub. Some of the rooms looked to be a lot smaller so it is good to ask about the room configuration beforehand. The property is very nicely done - some interesting local sculpture (not all Native American themed) and pretty gardens. Nice pool area (I didn't use it). The restaurant, Lons, is quite good - I only had breakfast and lunch there, not dinner. The bar, and bartender (Jeremy) was also good - seems like it gets a mix of locals and hotel guests, so it was fun the night I was there. Only drawback (and this depends on your interests) is that it is a little out of the way. It's in the middle of a residential neighborhood (very upscale), which makes it nice and quiet, but it's a bit of a drive to get to things you might want to see. Also, no fitness center - they have an arrangement with one that's about a mile away.
- 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
