“The perfect Scottsdale boutique hotel”
Reviewed 27 January 2014

The staff at Hermosa Inn (Tyler & Alison) couldn't have been more pleasant to work with. The food at Lon's was delicious (short ribs are a must) and the service was phenomenal.The hotel is about a 15 minute drive to downtown Scottsdale.

We had originally planned to stay only two mights then transfer to the Biltmore. After being at the Inn for one night we had no desire to go anywhere else. Worth driving every day to the Biltmore for our conference. It was lovely, secluded and the staff was great.

I spent 5 days/4 nights at The Hermosa Inn, the first 4 days for a business meeting, the last added on for pleasure. My wife joined me for most of the stay. Overall, our experience was very good.

The Hermosa Inn is a small, quiet place, tucked away in a residential neighborhood. It is quite unlike many of the large, brash resorts that dot the area. We had a casita with a fireplace. The room was spacious and comfortable. It was one of three casitas grouped together in a gentle curve, facing a garden and outdoor jacuzzi. I was not in any of the other rooms, but those that we're not casitas appeared smaller and were organized in a straight line. I'm confident those guests also greatly enjoyed their experience, but I was particularly glad to be in a casita.

We dined at Lon's, the inn's restaurant, on one occasion. Our meals were excellent, as was the service. My spare ribs were superb. You will spend about $150 for a dinner for two (glass of wine, salad, entree, dessert), and likely more depending on how much wine you drink.

My wife had a wonderful facial treatment at the spa. Her only disappointment was the price, at $140, was more than expected She looked and felt great (but I thought she looked great before too). I'd recommend spending that money on another dinner at Lon's instead.

The grounds of the inn are beautifully landscaped, with sculptures along pleasant walking paths. I found a chair in one of the gardens and spent hours with a good book.

All of the staff - reception, housekeeping, kitchen, waitress - were always professional, friendly and helpful.

Finally, because this is off the between track, there is nothing within close walking distance. All shops and restaurants are a short cab ride away, which the staff is happy to arrange.

Overall, we had a very pleasant experience and I hope to return some day.

A real gem. This property is lovely and secluded. I highly recommend spending the extra dollars on a casita. Our casita was beautifully appointed and I loved wandering through the gardens and passing by the sculputre installations along the way "home" to our place. I hope to get back here someday.

Room Tip: The casitas are the best way to go here.

This is the perfect boutique hotel without any of the stuffiness that some of them can have.

The staff were welcoming and helpful. The room was fantastic and you immediately have the feeling that you are somewhere special and that they treat all their guests from 9 (my son's age) to 90 in the same way.

The pool is sooooo relaxing and you lie back and watch the humming birds fly around the tops of the palm trees. Service at the pool is low key and excellent.

The grounds are stunning but again in an understated and unshowy way - truly special.

For the first time on out week road trip round gorgeous Arizona the waiter at Lons (the hotel restaurant ) got it just right. He was informative, friendly and efficient without being overbearing and loud and repetitive as a lot of them unfortunately now are.

Wonderful stay - just to short. We would LOVE to come back.

Thanks to everyone for making our brief stay very special.

Room Tip: the ones in the garden or set back from the road probably best

Lovely spacious rooms with private outdoor spaces. The most beautiful grounds with colorful desert plants intermixed with interesting sculpture. Lovely pool and spa. Only 34 rooms. Service is warm and friendly. Originally home of well known western painter and some of his artwork and other excellent paintings throughout hotel. Excellent well priced breakfast. Not cheap but well worth it. Very near canal path where you can walk or bike.

Tucked away in the heart of metro Phoenix is a southwestern gem. This southwestern inn has just 34 rooms including several spacious casitas. We were fortunate enough to come in under a package program that included a "tour" of the inn that turned out to be the highlight of our trip. Andrew, one of the hosts at the Lon's restaurant on property, grew up less than a mile from the property and since both he and my wife and I had been Arizona residents for over 50 years we not only shared many amazing points about the hotel but our love for the Phoenix area. He will tell you tales of friendly ghosts and the cowboy artist whose property you are visiting. Please talk to Pam the guest relations director and Nicole the registration clerk. Be seated on the spacious patio and enjoy drinks from The Last Drop and then a view of the mountains while eating an amazing meal lit by miners lamps on the patio while you soft music is being played. The pool and spa seem about the size to be found in your backyard with a fire pit to relax and enjoy the quiet. Plan your stay to include breakfast and don't forget their signature "monkey bread". Although we live only a few miles away, it was one of the best staycations we have ever enjoyed and can't wait to come back.

Room Tip: If you can get a casita at a discount, go for it. But you will not be disappointed with any room.

The 43 newly renovated guest casitas are nestled in a garden setting with breathtaking vistas of the lush desert and Camelback Mountain.

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
