Boutique Phoenix hotels are slowly gaining ground in the Valley of the Sun, although the city is still dominated by cookie cutter hotels and motels. But when you're seeking a hotel loaded with character and style, look no further than our number one pick, the Hermosa Inn in Paradise Valley. This historic hacienda property was once the home and working studio of legendary cowboy artist Lon Megargee. Graciously decorated with Southwestern flourishes and surrounded by beautiful desert gardens, this is a luxury boutique stay that will leave a lasting impression.
For a boutique Phoenix hotel near the city, Aloft near the Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport, our number six pick, is neon-chic palace of glass and steel. Self-service kiosks, mood lighting, and bright airy guestrooms lend this ultra-modern hotel a futuristic feel that still manages to feel inviting to tired, road-weary travelers. If you prefer historic hotels brimming with character, the Hotel San Carlos in downtown Phoenix is the last of the greats. Although a bit worn around the edges, the Italian Renaissance Revivalist style of this burnished gem continues to charm travelers who prefer character over luxury.
