Weekend highlights (part 2 of 2)

Every summer, during the off-season, many of the resorts in the area offer fantastic rates and special package deals. For the past two years, we've stayed at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge (read about it here - "Deals @ the JW Marriott Desert Ridge").

This year, I had narrowed it down to either the Arizona Biltmore or Hermosa Inn, and finally decided on the "Night at Lon's" package at the Hermosa Inn.

The package included the following:
  • one-night stay in a deluxe casita
  • enhanced turn-down service
  • $100 credit at Lon's at the Hermosa
  • $50 breakfast credit
We paid $267 for a Sunday night stay - about $200 less than the rate during the winter (peak season) months.

Here are some pictures of our stay:
Our "deluxe casita" - there were 2 units in the building...
Big room!
HUGE bathroom!
awesome shower...
pool area - we went once in the evening and once in the morning and were the only guests there
welcome gift
2 chocolate cookies and personalized event guide w/ turndown service
Dinner - dining room @ Lon's

The next morning, we had breakfast on the patio of our casita:

You still have a few more months to take advantage of the summer deals, or you'll have to wait until next year!
