Traveling with tots is no joke. It requires lots of planning, patience, and parental libations. That's why I'm the biggest fan of staycations (granted we did just return from a wonderful trip to San Diego, but that required lots more travel, time, and planning than we normally have), an opportunity to "get away" while staying close. We are fortunate enough to live in the Valley of Sun that is home to so many incredible hotels and resorts, including what I consider to be the hidden gem of Arizona, The Hermosa Inn.
One of our favorite things to do as a family is to experience all that sunny Arizona has to offer, including making our rounds around the resorts, spas, and restaurants. While summer is here, and Arizona is not being shy about the three digit weather (cue the sobbing emoji), one of the best ways to relax and unwind is to take a staycation. This is by far the best time to experience local resorts, as you often get to stay at five star resorts for a fraction of the cost! The Hermosa Inn truly is a paradise oasis in the middle of the desert. A luxury boutique hotel that is certain to pamper you in the finest style like you expect on vacation. From the moment you drive up you are greeted by the peekaboo views of the praying monk on Camelback mountain, lush garden landscape, cascading sound of water from the fountain, and a cool towel to help you transition into vacay mode. The Hermosa Inn is offering their best deal of the year with the "Summer in Paradise" special with rooms starting at $139/night plus tax and resort fee, which includes:
Now, when we travel, even for a short staycation, the little man always comes. So for us, we look for rooms that either have a patio that we can sit outside (once he is asleep) or make the upgrade for a suite to have even more room to relax and unwind. We were fortunate enough to stay at one of the gorgeous suites that are beyond impressive, featuring hardwoods, rich buttery leather chairs, four poster beds, and a bathroom that is an oasis by itself! Seriously the bathroom is my DREAM bathroom and gave me all kinds of wonderful house inspo for our new home!
The Hermosa Inn is a special place to us, we decided to use it as the backdrop for our anniversary photos we took with Alyssa Ryan Photography; to see those click here. LON's Restaurant has been the setting for many special family moments, including my bridal shower and most recently, my 30th birthday celebration. The food is truly some of the best in the Valley! And the Happy Hour out on the stunning patio never disappoints!
If you're looking for a luxury oasis here in our desert, I've found just the gem! The grounds are truly magical, lush garden landscape boasting hammocks that just call to you, large chess game, bean toss, and a pristine pool that was the highlight of Mr. Fitzgerald's vacation! Check out some of our favorite photos from our beautiful stay, including two of my favorite summer style looks from Pink Blush.
Thank you to Pink Blush for making me vacation ready with these looks, you can shop both looks that are under $50 here and here.
I hope you enjoyed a glimpse into our magical staycation at The Hermosa Inn. Don't hesitate to book yours now and enjoy a weekend of relaxation and rejuvenation!
