I am a big fan of Kimpton properties. The Amara is a potentially great property with absolutely top notch, capable and friendly service. Despite the title, however, this is no resort. The property is an odd collection of almost-connected buildings and the interiors are well maintained but still dated and unimpressive. It seems a little starved for some investment and...

We arrived late afternoon after driving up from Deming New Mexico, allocated in a superior room overlooking the pool. A very well equipped room with both Jacuzzi bath and shower room. very quiet even next to the main path. Excellent food in restaurant, free wine at 17:00 good quality white . complementary free parking. would have liked to stay longer....

The Amara resort ...perfectly convenient to all things Sedona. Located just off the busy touristy main street shops...this is an oasis. The staff beginning with valet was so welcoming. The concierge folks were so efficient with recommendations and suggestions.Our perfectly appointed room was very comfortable for an extended stay. We overlooked the pool and full view of the beautiful red...

Easily one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at and a must for anyone visiting Sedona. We arrived and received a complimentary upgrade which was lovely and provided us with a beautiful view of the mountains. The view from the patio and pool area is amazing and something which just has to be seen. There are a variety...

The staff were so accommodating with any request. The breakfasts in the morning, out on the patio from the restaurant: always served with a smile and always, always fresh and beautiful to look at. Thank you for a lovely, lovely stay in beautiful Amara. When we visit again, this is where we will stay. Close proximity to everything.

We spent 2 nights at Amara and it was fantastic. The employees were great from the valet, front desk and I can not forget the restaurant/ bar staff. The room was spacious and clean. Even the housekeeping employees were very nice...saying hello to us anytime we seen them. The day we were checking out with the luggage one of housekeeping...

At check in, we were told we had to pay $27 per night per room for a "resort fee" which was not identified when we booked. We objected, were put through the wringer and she told us that she would refer it to the manager the next day. We never heard from the manager and when we checked out we...

Thank you for your feedback. The resort fee is charged to every guest that stays in the resort. As opposed to other property's fees which can seem quite arbitrary, ours actually provides quite a bit - including parking - which most see as a benefit to them. I would love to know how you booked your reservation. While some 3rd-party...

We are Kimpton Karma members, and almost always stay at that chain when travelling if they are in the places we visit. The Staff here in the Sedona location was absolutely wonderful. Valet, check-in staff, and notably, Teah, the concierge that reached out ahead of our stay. She was super responsive to pre-trip emails regarding any and all questions we...

While I was very happy to hear about your experience with Teah, I am obviously disappointed in your thoughts regarding our guestrooms. This isn't the time of feedback that we expect to hear... But, we need to take a hard look at what our guests may be experiencing. While the room materials/décor may not change, the cleanliness and condition of...

Amara is a warm, beautifully run boutique-to-medium sized resort. The staff are so kind, courteous, and intuitive that they seem more like close friends than hotel staff. The hotel grounds are aesthetically pleasing to say the least. Morning happy hour includes free coffee, tea and hot chocolate bar. Evening happy hour includes an hour of free red and white wine,...
