Property's location is quiet yet central
Additional $32 daily resort fee added to room rates
Although the Valley of the Sun's big-name resorts draw large numbers, visitors who prefer a more intimate experience should bed down at The Hermosa Inn. With standard hacienda-style rooms starting at 350 square feet, this boutique hotel can host both couples and families comfortably. Guests appreciate the friendly, relaxed and livable environment created by both the cozy accommodations and small staff. What's more, LON's, the hotel's acclaimed Southwestern-style restaurant, attracts Phoenix natives and visitors alike. But here's the real kicker: This hotel might seem tucked away in the quiet suburb of Paradise Valley, but it's actually in a central location that's convenient to many of Phoenix's best-loved sites, like Camelback Mountain. Lodgers can explore the surrounding area via the hotel's bikes, the cost of which is included in the hotel's $32 nightly resort fee. Other amenities covered by the mandatory fee include access to the fitness room, valet parking, free Wi-Fi access, and coffee, tea, fruit, morning pastries and freshly baked afternoon cookies in the lobby.

Critic Reviews


Hermosa Inn is an intimate, romantic southwestern retreat, with ... casita-style rooms on six sprawling acres, surrounded by cacti and flowering plants.



This boutique hotel's ranch-style lodge was the home and studio of cowboy artist Lon Megargee in the 1930s; today the adobe structure houses Lon's at the Hermosa, justly popular for its New American cuisine.

Travel + Leisure


If you feel like you're staying in the ranch home of a wacky cowboy artist, you're right: a creative cattle-herder built the property in 1935, and it now holds an artist-in-residence program to honor the history.
