Nice property to stay at in Sedona. Not a big property however it has a nice courtyard. Creek right behind the infinity pool that you can walk down to. Pet friendly, but not over run with pets. Only cons, Kind of thin wall. So you can hear everyone in the hall ways, and if you are on the bottom floor...

Pros: nice rooms, comfy beds, great outdoor patio/pool space. Cons: attitude of two staff members acting as concierge were very rude. Depending where you are located within the hotel, there may be stairs/outside walkways to get to your room. Not ideal if you have a lot of luggage. Found it very odd the linen carts are kept outside between the...

Kwatkins83, Thanks for sharing your honest feedback about your recent visit. I am alarmed to hear that the team members that were less than welcoming. That is neither typical nor acceptable. We understand that with many of the rooms at the end of the property that luggage assistance is a must and the team is ready to help. Our guests...

Great Place very clean an great staff as well. We love it was so close to oak creek with hiking right on the creek and super close to downtown but a steep uphill walk not for the elderly. The Fresh Coffee Bar was very nice. No free breakfast though. But the downtown has several restaurants for eating. It's very private....

This hotel is strategically located in the heart of Sedona. It is walking distance from many quaint restaurants and shops. It overlooks gorgeous Sedona rocks, is surrounded by breathtaking scenery. The hotel itself is nice, especially for the price. Definitely worth a visit. Many enjoyable hikes around the corner from it. We had a fantastic time.

Nayla222, Great to hear that you enjoyed your time at the Amara. The location is perfect….from the proximity to the uptown shops and restaurants to the dozens of hikes just a few minutes from the property. Thanks for sharing your experience. Sincerely, Patrick Gaskin General Manager

We were only able to spend one evening here but thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The property is down a steep hill from the main entertainment area, but that was a feature I appreciated the most--being away from the busy main drag. Our room was 'creekside' so we faced the beautiful patio and pool area with a small patio seating area...

Tucked away in the woods away from the bustle of town but still within walking distance, this Kimpton property was just perfect for us. The infinity pool was perfect mix of luxury and rugged with it jutting into the trees and overtop the stream below - so pretty. The view of the red rocks was beautiful. The room was great...

Greetings Dee061, Thank you for sharing your experience. The pool is certainly a great place to relax after your daily adventures. So great that you took advantage of everything that Sedona and the Amara had to offer. The location is ideal as you are close enough to everything but tucked away from uptown.

After reading the reviews my husband and I decided to give this a try. Upon booking I told the hotel we are celebrating our 30th anniversary this year. Let me begin with the positive.

We stayed at the Amara for several nights in Sedona. Sedona is sooo beautiful, definitely one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. The Amara is a great choice if you want to be able to walk to shop and restaurants. Both are easily in walking distance. You need a car to get to the mountains and trails,...

The Amhara is nestled back from the busy main street of Sedona and an absolute haven! The rooms are spacious and the grounds beautiful and relaxing! The staff at the entire resort is very friendly, helpful and makes the stay extra special. Will sure return here.
