“We are honored to be recognized by Condé Nast Traveler as one of the top hotels in the Southwest and West, which exemplifies the outstanding hospitality and service provided by our remarkable team while creating authentic and memorable guest experiences that are unmistakably Arizona,” said Managing Director Stephen Ast.

Handcrafted in the 1930’s by cowboy artist Lon Megargee as his residence and art studio, the Hermosa Inn is a jewel of a hideaway in Paradise Valley, with 43 luxury guest casitas nestled in a garden setting boasting breathtaking vistas of the lush desert and Camelback Mountain. Renowned for its globally inspired Arizona fare, the critically acclaimed LON’s at the Hermosa is the culinary centerpiece of the hotel and is complemented by a subterranean wine cellar, a celebrated outdoor dining patio and its bar and casual dining counterpart: LON’s Last Drop.

The 2020 Readers’ Choice Awards are published on Condé Nast Traveler’s website at and celebrated in the November issue of Condé Nast Traveler US and UK print editions.
