We stay at Kimpton all over the country but never in our home state... Last min anniversary plans so used reward points for a free stay! Check in was fast and prompt and room was perfect. Property is right on the creek and outdoor restaurant seating outside our patio but not a issue still had privacy and one the crowd... More

I had the pleasure of staying at the Amara Resort for 3 nights, and both my husband and I enjoyed our visit very much. The hotel setting is beautiful, even though the driveway leading to the property is poorly marked and very easy to miss. As other reviewers have also noted, once you miss the turn, it is not easy...

Thank you, ubisono! Great notes regarding the signage to enter our property. While we loved being 'tucked away' from all of the action of uptown Sedona, our entry can be tough to spot. If it weren't for some pretty strict city ordinances, we'd opt for something much more obvious! I sincerely appreciate your comments regarding our staff and the service... More

Stayed here with my wife for a relaxing, romantic weekend hoping the "resort" part of the name would cater to what we needed. The location is excellent as it is right in upper Sedona, close to the action (for Sedona!). The staff was excellent and friendly. We were "upgraded" to a room with spa tub (which we did not use...aren't... More

Nice is good... but we want to be great! . While the spa tub may be a matter of opinion, having your room cleaned daily is a basic service that we need to provide 100% of the time. Our rooms are typically serviced throughout the day up until about 4pm. If it wasn't serviced within that timeframe, I am truly... More

Be careful, there are a number of hidden problems that don't show up in the beautiful picture. First, over half the rooms don't have the wonderful views and I made my reservation 6 weeks in advance. Ours looked out on another motel. Yuck! The hotel's location is great because it's in the center of town, but you either have to... More

We booked at Amara Resort on relatively short notice, and were very happy with our choice. The Kimpton Hotel group is sophisticated about what travelers want--no excess fuss, but excellent attitude of all staff and easily- accessible amenities. They charge a resort fee which includes 24 hour valet parking and service, and the result is one of ease and a... More

Loved our stay. Loved the staff. Loved the wine hour. Loved the pool. Loved the restaurant and bar. The house cleaning staff was amazing. Only thing I would mention is it is dated. Definitely needs it. Looks like the 90's Will stay again though.

Oh no -- We are definitely not trying to bring the 90s back! Our property was renovated in 2014, and while that is fairly recent, we are constantly looking for ways to improve and keep the resort looking fresh while keeping with the natural setting of Sedona. We're always open to feedback! More
