Our family stayed at the Hermosa Inn for two nights. We booked one casita that connected to one deluxe casita, forming a hacienda. This arrangement worked very well for the family: one room for us and the other for the children, ages 12 & 14, to share.
The rooms were luxurious and spacious including the bathroom which was equally grand. There were special touches like sky lights, walk in closets and a convenient electronic docking station for your camara and cell phone.
The view from the room was lovely as well, I was constantly spying on the birds landing outside our patio door near the jacuzzi.
On our first night we ordered in from the room service menu. It was delivered to the room with aplomb fitting just how good the food was. It is the best room service meal we've had; each of the four selections were delicious.
We found the Inn secluded and classy... no crowds here. Even the walk from the lobby to our rooms was inspiring as you pass by the flower covered pool area and various gardens including a garden filled with statues and other art pieces. The lobby is very inviting, especially with the complementary fresh fruit, water, coffee/tea, and fresh baked cookies!
The concierges were very helpful, providing guidance about the neighborhood. As a result, we ended up taking a lovely walk from the Hermosa Inn along the canal all the way to the Arizona Biltmore. While at the Arizona Biltmore, we signed up for a guided tour of the establishment which we found to be very interesting and worthwhile as it explored the architecture and history of the hotel and surrounding area (before you go: check which days/time they do the tour; there is a $10.00 pp charge if you are not a hotel guest).
- 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
