We stayed here 2 nights at the beginning of our 8 day vacation in AZ. I will fully admit the poor weather likely plays a part in our three star review of this hotel but given everything (price, staff, room, noise level) we feel a 3 star (or lower) rating is appropriate. We were on the first floor (136). The...

Well it is certainly hard to defend against poor weather weighing against your experience, but I certainly regret your experience regarding the noisy neighbors. While sometimes impossible to prevent when dealing with outside influences, we always want the opportunity to ensure a peaceful nights rest! Just let us know the issue... We'll handle the rest. We hope you'll give us...

This place tries hard and is on the right track but just misses on a few key points Before we checked in the concierge sent us a list of restaurant , hikes, and attractions which was great. We checked in and staff were friendly , smiles and helpful and this started right from the point we drove up (Awesome job...

Thank you for taking the time to share some thoughts with us! While I am very happy that you found the arrival service and the food quality to your liking, I am obviously a bit bummed in regards to the housekeeping service. As cleaning service often doesn't conclude until around 4pm, the timing is cutting it close, but not outside...

Spent two nights at Amara and loved it! Sunset on the patio by the fire pits, sitting in Adirondack chairs, covered in blankets provided by the resort, wine in hand, and conversations with other travelers---wonderful experience. Service at restaurant was good. All employees very helpful and polite. Hopefully will return.

Stayed and dined at the Amara Resort in January. Service and food were excellent. Rooms and beds comfortable. Enjoyed a spa service. Kudos to the bell staff who salted the snowy driveway and helped me pack my car with luggage.

From the moment we arrived, the staff impressed us with their high energy, smiles and willingness to be of assistance. The yoga classes were amazing. The treatments (Rain Dance, Winds of Change and Detox Wrap) were unique and well worth the investment. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The location is on the creek away from the hassle but within...

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...

Despite not quite meeting you expectations from a physical standpoint, I certainly do appreciate you calling out the amazing staff that we have on property. Thank you for that! We have a very unique property - different than most. More expansive facilities do exist, but for our location and atmosphere, I'd argue that we are the best around Sedona. I...

Easily one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at and a must for anyone visiting Sedona.
