Driving from Gilbert, Grand Canyon and Sedona

We are planning a trip late feb and will be staying in Gilbert AZ for a few nights visiting family. We would like to see Sedona and the Grand Canyon. Would Williams be a good spot if planning on seeing both areas? We have 3 kids and would like a kid friendly hotel. Williams looks like an adorable old western town and most hotels have a pool which thenkids will love. Any suggestions on where to stay would be greatly appreciated.

Williams is central, but it’s not the best place to stay. Better to stay a night or two at Sedona and then one night at Grand Canyon National Park

Regarding the pools, do you understand that it will be winter (and likely snowing, or at least snow on the ground) in Williams in Feb? Unless the pool is indoors, your kids won't be swimming.

That said, Williams is a poor choice for visiting the GC and Sedona. Book a room inside the Grand Canyon Nat'l Park, as well as a room for a night in Sedona. If you only have 1 overnight, then you'll need to choose one, obviously.
