I made the mistake of not paying a bit more for a courtyard room, and ended up in an "accessible" patio room buried under the lovely rooms, next to the loud engineering / employee work areas. Requested a change the moment I saw the room, but they said there were no other rooms available. Still payed a large sum for...

Thank you, Julie. I am very sorry to learn that the room was not to your liking. We are often able to make adjustments to place you in a more suitable room, but that is sometimes difficult if we are at capacity. I hope you will give us another try in the future... I'd love to ensure we get you...

My family came to Sedona to celebrate my mother's birthday. We have always come up to Sedona but this was the first time I stayed at the Amara resort. It was fantastic. We brought our two large dogs and they had a wonderful dog policy. Very friendly. They also had a fantastic happy hour with free wine and a little...

A well-furnished, upscale hotel with great design and a friendly, helpful staff. Prior to arriving, the concierge got in touch with us and we corresponded about available tours and other activities available during our stay. Very comfortable even though the rooms are a little on the small side. Nice patio to view the central pool area. The restaurant has great...

Thank you for the feedback from your recent visit! I am very happy to hear that our concierge was able to connect with you regarding some of what Sedona has to offer prior to your stay. So much of Sedona is meant to be experienced outside of the guestroom... While many of our rooms offer views or partial views of...

Lobby Staff is super Friendly and Dog Friendly. The lobby staff goes above and beyond. The Valet was fast, polite and professional as well. Big plus for taking dogs.

Well I am certainly bummed to hear about that margarita! As a 'craft margarita" bar, our cocktails are usually on-point! Next time, that margarita is on me... I know we can do better. Much appreciation for the kudos to our service staff lobby. They'll love to hear the feedback. Thank you!

This is a really nice hotel, almost top of the line, there were just a couple of aggravations for us. There were many large dogs everywhere on the property. We are not dog people but even if we were it's odd to see so many dogs in such a nice hotel, and I mean everywhere! Another issue we had was,...

Thank you for the great information from your stay! Yes, we do welcome our four-legged guests here, but we understand that isn't for everyone. Typically we may only see a dog here and there... They must just be attracted to you! In all seriousness, I appreciate your kind words about our team and the overall experience despite the construction noise...

There is a nice vibe here. There are elements of this hotel that remind you of a hotel past its prime, but they've updated it in a way that makes it chic, yet comfortable. If you stand on a balcony overlooking the property, the layout and profile give a sense of the 80s, and yet the updates have made it...

This resort gives you the best of Sedona!!! Must stay.. Very excellent staff and resort offers. The resort has great amenities and great food. I stayed at other hotels in Sedona and this by far gave the full experience. The pool is heated and there are fire pits on the property

A true professional, Manager of Housekeeping, Jesse Limon turned an otherwise average (by Kimpton standards) experience into one we left feeling very satisfied about. He is a true asset to management, and we appreciated all his efforts in making good on a particular situation.

Overall very satisfied with my stay. Nice option of complimentary coffee in the AM and wine in the afternoon. Our room was less than satisfactory. The door was extremely heavy and the location was almost underground which was unfortunate. It seemed like a bottom level room Despite what we paid. We still enjoyed the grounds and the options were good....

Thank you, lvm037! Interesting feedback regarding the room - not quite sure what you meant by 'underground' as all of our rooms are on ground level or above. Very happy you enjoyed our location and staff. I hope that next time we can get you in a room that your absolutely love.
