Two resorts in the Valley are shining brighter, thanks to AAA.

The travel source, which evaluates more than 58,000 lodging properties and restaurants each year, recently bestowed The Camby, in Phoenix, and Hermosa Inn, in Paradise Valley, with its Four Diamond Award.

The Camby, one of the newest luxury offerings in the Valley quickly made its way to the AAA Diamonds list after opening in late 2015.

AAA’s inspector noted the following about The Camby: Catering to both business and leisure travelers, this playful, trendy and upscale property has impressive guest rooms, a lively lobby bar and a fun—yet relaxing—rooftop pool. While roaming the grounds and the hotel, be sure to look for all the whimsical and quirky touches.

Hermosa Inn joins LON’s at the Hermosa on the prestigious Four Diamond list. LON’s at the Hermosa has been a Four Diamond restaurant for 11 years.

AAA’s inspector noted the following about Hermosa Inn: This historic home of cowboy artist Lon Megargee offers a variety of intimate guest rooms housed in different buildings scattered throughout the beautifully landscaped grounds.
