The Hermosa emphasizes quality over size, yet somehow has so many discrete corners that it feels more interesting than hotels and resorts 10 times its size. You'll never feel like you're part of an anonymous crowd at the Hermosa. As an introvert who values a discrete, personable setting, this place was perfect for me.
Nearly 100% of the hotel is ground floor. It comes with a library, and a genuine wine cellar. The staff are happy to organize dinners for you in either of them.
Best of all: the food was the best of any hotel I have stayed at in my life. It was something to write home about.
- 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
