Spent three nights here and enjoyed it very much. Its a beautifull complex in a quiet upmarket residential area a short drive to the centre of Scottsdale (inn actually in Paradise Valley).
We were given a large one bedroon "casita" with a delightful living area (complete with flat screen 32" LCD TV and CD player), kitchenette but a disappointingly small bathroom compared to the rest of the suite. However, it was all beautifuly furnished in south west style and with Mexican tiles and really did not spoil our stay.
The rest of the complex was similarly elegant and the origional adobe that formed the basis of the inn was very picturesque. The grounds were also very pretty.
Breakfast was a buffet and although not overly extensive in choice was of a very high quality. Service could not have been more helpful and friendly.
We had dinner at Lon's the hotel's restaurant one evening which was top notch and we could not fault it in any way. It was full each evening of our visit, so must be held in high esteem locally. Dining on the terrace on a warm evening - lovely.
Reception was very helpful and even allowed free internet use which was a pleasant surprise. We were advised there would be a $12.95 "resort charge" per night of our stay which was for continental breakfast, none food and beverage service charges and free local phone calls. However on checking out, this did not appear on our bill. We thought this was maybe as compensation for the property's swimming pool being out of action for refurbishment which was a slight disappointment because it would have been lovely to use at the end of a busy day and as the inn was not too busy with guests, would have been a relaxing addition to our stay. But you know, in the end it did not matter - that is how lovely this place is!
- 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
