Although the lobby was small, it did not get crowded and we I was able to check in and out smoothly.
There was also a concierge desk in the lobby, where I could get information about Sedona’s sightseeing spots.
There was a sofa and a fireplace behind of the front desk, and it created a nice atmosphere. In addition, I was able to drink hot apple cider for free during the day.
There were several buildings in the hotel.
As the hotel was built on a hill and did not have an elevator, so it was hard to tell which floor my room was located on, but I think that I stayed on the second floor.
What it is the Standard Room like?
There was a window next to the entrance door, from which you can see a beautiful view over the shared balcony. However, the inside of the room could be seen from the outside if the window was open, so I always had the bind closed,
When I entered the room, there were two beds, a desk, a TV stand, and in the back was the bathroom. Cleaning was done well and was able to spend time comfortably. Outside was cold, but the rooms were heated. The bed was comfortable and I was able sleep well.
There was a TV opposite the bed.
There was a chair next to the TV.
There was a desk and a chair.
The balcony had tables and chairs, and it was a shared space.
The area is surrounded by mountains and you can enjoy a very nice view. There were only a few people staying, because it was during cold season. It would be nice to be able to drink wine while looking at the nice view.
There were sofas outside as well.
The bathroom was at the very back of the room. When I entered the bathroom, there was a washbasin in front of me, and on the left was a toilet and a bathtub.
Hand soap and lotion were equipped next to the wash basin. The lotion was nice for dry skin.
The bathtub was not big, but I was able to relax in the bathtub.
There was no problem with the water pressure of the shower, and the hot water came out right away. The shower was fixed on the wall, but I was able to change the direction of the shower head.
Shampoo, conditioner and body soap were equipped in the bathtub. My hair became dry after using the shampoo and conditioner.

Closet and safe
The closet was next to the window.
There were two kinds of hangers; a kind with clips and ordinary hangers.
An iron and an ironing board was prepared. There was no safety box.
Mini bar and cafe
There was a capsule-type coffee machine beside the wash basin. Because I am pregnant, I was happy that there was decaf.
An ice bucket and glasses were prepared on the desk.
There was nothing in the refrigerator.
Restaurants in the hotel
There was a restaurant that serves breakfast. Unfortunately, I did not eat here this time.
They serve a breakfast buffet from 6:00 to 10:00.
Facilities in the hotel
There was an outdoor pool at the hotel, but it was not open as I was staying during the cold season. It was not very big. There were several chairs around the pool and I thought it would be nice to read a book and relax by the pool.
There was a children’s pool as well.
There was a fitness center in the hotel. It is open from 8 am to 10 am.
There were many exercise equipments prepared.
There were two computers at the back of the lobby, which you can use for free.
Environment around the hotel
There are restaurants, general stores, and Red Rock around the hotel. If it is a hotel, it is good to take sightseeing using a shuttle bus, and I think it is fun to go nearby by rental car. You can ride the hotel’s tour bus, or rent a car. The hotel has no restaurant other than one that serves breakfast, but I thought it would be fun to buy a deli at the organic supermarket and eat inside the room.

Staff and customer base
The hotel staffs were helpful. The Concierge taught me a lot about Sedona’s sightseeing spots, and helped me find information form the guidebook.
There were many Westerners staying. I saw a couple of children, but most of the guests were elderly couples. The guests were well mannered, so I was able to stay at the hotel comfortably.
The nearest airport is Phoenix Airport, which is about 2 hours away from the hotel. In addition, it takes about 5 hours from the Las Vegas area, so it would be difficult to access it without using a rental car. After checking in to the hotel, Sedona city can be accessed by shuttle bus service. Although I did not use it this time, I thought that it would be a very useful service when drinking alcohol at night, as it will transfer to nearby restaurants and sightseeing spots. The area around the hotel was an elegant tourist destination, and there are many restaurants that looked very nice. In addition, the area felt very safe, and it seems to be well known as a luxury resort in the United States.
It is about 5 minutes by car to “Airport Mesa ” which is a tourist destination famous as the 4th Vortex, and about 15 minutes on foot, so there are many customers who go to see the morning sun. In addition, because it is close to the center of Sedona, I did not have trouble finding a place to shop.

I had a nice stay at this hotel. First of all, it was convenient to go anywhere. As it was a short drive away to the famous 4 major Vortex “Airport Mesa,” I was able to get up early and watch the sun come up. Also, there were various restaurants around, which was very convenient. Secondly, the scenery was nice. There were reddish-brown mountains surrounding us, and I could enjoy a 360 degree view. The weather was nice too, so I was able to take nice photos. Lastly, the hotel was reasonable. I was able to rest after a long travel in a clean and comfortable room.
