We were celebrating a milestone birthday and stayed in a Rancho room on a package that included breakfast, a $100 credit for Lon's, champaigne/strawberries and enhanced turn down service. The property is beautiful and the service was great. Lon's was outstanding.
The but and it is a big but is that our Rancho room was really run down. The carpet was wrinkled and stained and the furniture was really beat up. I know that it is high season and that the Hermosa was fully booked (we tried to get a casita and they were booked) but the Rancho room was certainly not worth the price. Extracting all the extras of the package we paid about $400 a night for a room that clearly had not been updated in years....right down to the peeling paint on the door trim and cracked tile in the bathroom. We also did not get the turn down service on our second night.
We may consider returning for a Casita room but will never stay in a Rancho room again. We were told that the Rancho rooms had not been updated because many returning guest love them the way they are. Well you can still keep the rustic charm while replacing old carpet, cracked tile and adding a fresh coat of paint.
- 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
