Ranked as #9 of the Top 10 Hotels in the U.S. and the #1 Hotel in the Southwest & West in Condé Nast Traveler’s 2017 Readers’ Choice Awards, the AAA Four Diamond Hermosa Inn is a jewel of a hideaway surrounded by an exclusive neighborhood in Paradise Valley, and just minutes from Scottsdale and its many attractions. Handcrafted in the 1930's by cowboy artist Lon Megargee as his residence and art studio, the Inn’s adobe architecture has maintained 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 serving globally inspired Arizona fare. A recipient of Wine Spectator's 'Best of Award of Excellence', 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.
