ABOUT THE HERMOSA INN, LON’S & LAST DROP
Ranked among the top hotels in the Southwest, The Hermosa Inn is a jewel of a hideaway in the heart of the city; minutes from Scottsdale and its many attractions, yet surrounded by an exclusive neighborhood in Paradise Valley. Handcrafted in the 1930s by cowboy artist Lon Megargee as his residence and art studio, the Inn’s adobe architecture has kept its “old 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 architecture of the original hacienda 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 paintings, many of which are displayed throughout the resort.
