Kimpton Amara Resort & Spa
Ranked #13 of 48 Hotels in Sedona
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 July 2014

I just stayed here for July 3rd to July 6th. We did not see/hear any construction going on so I think it was short lived. Staff is amazing. Grounds are well kept and very quiet. Ample pool and hot tub with central courtyard with chairs and water features. Drinks at the bar were great. Food (Breakfast and dinner) at hotel were awesome- even had live music every night we were there. Valet service is great, and included in your resort fee. There is a shuttle van which will bring you to town also, within 1 mile. The hotel is down a steep cliff so some people may find it challenging to walk up the hill so they provide free shuttle. The hotel smelled great, and was decorated like you would expect at a Kimpton hotel.

Room Tip: ask for second floor which has better views of the mountains.

Stayed here recently with some friends. The setting for the hotel is beautiful. Our room was large and the bed very comfortable. The staff were very friendly and most helpful. We enjoyed the free wine between 5 and 6 pm, a nice touch by the hotel. Although the entrance to the hotel is down a steep slope there is a free shuttle to take you anywhere within a mile. Because of the slope the hotel is secluded. Highly recommend.

As mentioned in another review, we also experienced the downfall of the construction taking place. Both mornings we were unable to sleep because of the hammering going on. The worst part about it was the resort and the staff were so wonderful that it was a shame that is one of the memories. The restaurant overlooking the garden and the amazing red rocks in a great spot for outdoor dining. Brent, the food and beverage manager, came by both nights to make sure our dinner was good. We will definitely return to this magical spot, after the refurbishment is complete.

Room Tip: Try to get a creek side location, very peaceful.

We were totally unaware that this hotel was under refurbishment when we arrived so that was disappointing. However with that aside whoever is responsible for allocating booked rooms to guests did not think this through as we were initially put in a room where they were accommodating the contractors. Carpets were being laid immediately above our room during the night and the contractors were in and out of their rooms all night as the work was being done primarily during the night. After complaining to the hotel manager that we had had no sleep whatsoever the first night, it was rectified very quickly and we were given a beautiful suite overlooking the creek that runs along the back of the hotel. What a shame that this situation was not considered before we arrived. We had a 7 hour day of driving on our tour the next day which we were very tired for.

The hotel itself has reasonable facilities, the reception staff double up as concierge as well and they are lovely people but don't have enough knowledge to be concierge too. Valet are excellent and very helpful. The general staff are very friendly and service is good.

The hotel is very centrally located off the main high street of Sedona so everything is within walking distance which is useful. However there is a very steep hill to get up and down to the town. Valet will give you a lift in a golf buggy though if you can't manage it.

Food is very good.

If you choose this hotel make sure you check everything you require and ask questions. Make sure you are very clear with the type of room you require, any other facilities or help you may need and noise!

Room Tip: Ask about contractors, noise, light (our first room was also very dark and dingy), and any other fac...

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights on our very first trip to Sedona in 2011, it was hard finding the place because it was in uptown and is a bit secluded. The place is very nice and the staff as well, what you expect from a 4 star accommodation. The only thing is that you have to walk uphill to get to the street and the driveway is a bit narrow and steep. We also got a room that was on the back of the hotel and we were looking at another yards property but the room is really great, we were not able to use the pool since it was winter time. We are actually thinking another trip to Sedona this July and seriously considering the hotel again.

First time in Sedona and this is the place to stay. Set in a great location over looking Sedona's Red Rocks this is the ideal place to relax and unwind. There is a great pool area, outdoor seating with fire pits. The breakfasts were great seated outside in the sunshine. A special mention must go to Emily in hospitality who kept the pints of Sierra Nevada flowing after a long day. Cheers!
