Anniversary stay

Posted Mar 22, 2015
Pros: Amara is in a perfect spot for shopping and dining. Beautiful views.
Cons: The mattress was not comfy. Very stiff
We had our wedding at Amara in 2005 and decided to celebrate our 10 year here. There have been major upgrades in the last 10 years to this property.

Beautiful hotel, great location

Posted Mar 20, 2015
Overall it was excellent. Friendly, helpful staff. Nice, clean room. Free valet, free shuttle within a mile of the hotel, beautiful patio and pool area. The walls are a little thin so I could hear other guests but other than that it was perfect.

Ok hotel. Quick walk up hotel to shops.

Posted Mar 4, 2015
Somewhat noisy. We could hear the person above us every time they walked. Bed was just ok. My husband said his back was bothering him after the second night. Main complaint- the price.and no microwave. We've stayed at many 300-400 night places, this establishment is NOT on par with them. It was close to shops so if that's what you like, than its a good choice. Sad to say but if you are looking for quiet & comfort, pick a local chain, you'll be much happier. Room was also on the small side.

Thank you for sharing your honest feedback regarding your recent visit. It’s disappointing to hear that your stay was not a positive one. We don’t strive for OK… we strive for outstanding and greatness so we certainly have room for improvement. While microwaves are not standard in every room, we certainly have them upon request. I am sorry to hear that your husband had trouble sleeping. Brand new beds were a part of the renovation less than a year ago (May/June of 2014). We conveniently located just a short walk or the valet team can give you a ride in the shuttle (anywhere within a mile of the property). The courtyard is a great place to unwind at the end of the day, have a beverage, and take in the incredible Red rock views. If you are looking for peace and quiet the spa is your oasis. The steam room and relaxation area are available to all of your guests to enjoy. Sincerely, Patrick G General Manager

Un première classe décontracté !

Posted Mar 2, 2015
Pros: L'extrême bon goût relax et fonctionnel !
C'est à pic pour descendre à l'entrée de l'hôtel mais une navette vous remonte au village qui est extrêmement agréable; la redescente est un plaisir à pied. Recommande Café HP pour un délicieux dejeuner et service attentionné. Vue unique et splendide !

We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience. The views are incredible everywhere in Sedona but our courtyard has spectacular vistas. The shuttle service (included in the daily resort fee) is huge plus getting up the long steep drive way or not having to worry about driving within a mile of the property. Warm regards, Patrick G General Manager

Great location, beautiful view from the room

Posted Feb 25, 2015
Pros: cleanliness, friendly, knowledgeable when asked for suggestions on dinner, gasoline, shopping, etc. Also complimentary wine in the early evening.
Cons: A coffee machine in the room would be a great idea!
Location: Walking distance to shops and restaurants
The staff was so friendly from the doormen to the front desk, all phases of our stay was excellent. Even ordering a dessert late in the evening to take up to our room was prepared with a smile. The option to have a ride up to the street and anywhere within a mile was a great free service. I would have preferred a coffee machine in the room so I didn't have to get dressed just to come down to get the complimentary coffee in the morning and back to the room to proceed getting ready for the day. So therefore, no second cup! A beautiful room!

Beth, Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience….I am thrilled to hear that the service was top notch and always done with a genuine smile…the team really cares here and it clearly shows as you can attest to it. While we do offer the complimentary coffee ach morning from 5:30AM to 9am daily in our living room we do understand that first cup in the morning is sometimes better in the privacy of your room….so with that said we have coffee makers upon request that can be placed in each and every guest room….we just like interacting with our guests in our living room. Our house is your house and we want to you feel at home… Warm regards, Patrick General Manager

Beautiful hotel and location!

Posted Feb 10, 2015
Cons: Nothing
Stayed only for one night, now I wish it was more. The room and the view were outstanding. Had breakfast the next morning in the restaurant and it was excellent!

Great getaway.

Posted Feb 10, 2015
Location: Hikes around the town. Tlaquepaque (google it! :) Day trips to canyon
Been to Sedona before. |excellent interesting village (uptown) with major awesome backdrop. This time we staged our visit to AZ, staying at Sedona and making day trips to Grand Canyon and another day to Antelope Canyon (and Horseshoe Bend). Sedona did not disappoint, neither did the hotel. From valet boys to personnel on the ground to the restaurant folks - all were amazing. Free coffee in the morning, free wine (5-6 pm only! :) was a nice touch. Great room, great view - the endless pool overlooks the river/creek and opens onto the red mountains range... Quiet and super confortable.

Great amenities and location in the Sedona area. Took advantage of the wine and yoga offering included in the resort fee. Everything needed was there on-prem.

Great Mountain Views even better staff!!

Posted Feb 4, 2015
Pros: Everything!
Cons: The ONLY thing I could add is the beds are platform and very comfortable. That said, the rear of the bed does stick out and we kept banging our shins
Location: Tranquility and pretty good food everywhere
Absolutely a MUST STAY! Wonderful people, awesome food, and the views are beyond my ability to comment in mere words. Just an amazing location with clearly well trained caring staff. I didnt want to leave!!
