The Hermosa Inn, a historic luxury boutique hideaway, has been named Arizona’s only winner in the 2019 TripSavvy Editors’ Choice Awards in the Best for Romance category. The 2019 winners, sourced through a unique mix of machine-learning and TripSavvy editor testing, represent the best in travel, tourism, and hospitality, and celebrate each winner’s outstanding contribution to travelers and the travel industry worldwide. 

TripSavvy Editors’ Choice Awards takes a two-step approach in selecting winners. First, its award-winning data team uses machine-learning technology to pinpoint outstanding businesses from data sources from reviews across the Internet and audience metrics from TripSavvy. The team compares those insights against TripSavvy’s expert content to identify businesses and destinations that outrank competitors in quality, considering elements such as customer service, value, and category fit. Finally, TripSavvy’s seasoned editors and writers scour the results, highlighting the most special, noteworthy, and trustworthy businesses. From a pool of over 60,000, only one percent of businesses, including The Hermosa Inn, passed TripSavvy’s editors’ rigorous testing and standards.

“The 2019 award winners are truly remarkable” says Molly Fergus, VP & General Manager of TripSavvy. “Our writers and editors are tasked with discovering the best of the best in the travel and hospitality industry, and The Hermosa Inn stood out. We’re thrilled to honor them.”

“With 43 hacienda-style guestrooms and casitas nestled on more than six acres of lush desert landscaping, The Hermosa Inn has long been revered for offering an upscale and memorable experience with its authentic Arizona charm and intimate atmosphere, so we are elated to be recognized by the editors at TripSavvy as the Best for Romance,” said Melanie Volkers, Director of Sales & Marketing. “Whether it’s a weekend getaway, honeymoon, anniversary celebration, or just because, this award confirms what our guests have known – that the Hermosa Inn is perfect for romance.”
