“Fantastic Experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

My girlfriend and I stayed at L'Auberge de Sedona earlier this month, and we had a great time. We had been looking for a place to relax and unwind after a busy week in Los Angeles and Los Vegas, and Sedona seemed like the perfect place.

We arrived late in the evening, but were met with very friendly and helpful staff. Even at night, we were impressed with the hotel grounds, and with the clear and starry sky. Checking in was painless, and we were given a ride in a golf cart to our bungalow, along with our bags.

Our room was surprisingly spacious, the photos on this site do not do the rooms justice. Our room had a large floor space, well-placed furniture, a large television, and a fireplace which actually produced a fair amount of heat. Though our stay was during the early summer, the weather tends to get a bit chilly in the evenings. There was no overpriced mini-bar, but there was a small refrigerator sufficient for our needs.

The bed was very comfortable. We stayed at four hotels during our American vacation, and all of them were high quality places, but the bed at L'Auberge was the most comfortable of the beds we slept in. I would like to know what kind of bed the hotel uses, I would love to buy one for our home.

The bathroom was superb. Very large and spacious, with a big bath tub with a large window to enjoy the view, two showers (indoor, and an outdoor shower), two sinks, and the toilet was in a separate room.

Our room had a huge balcony, with a table, two chairs, and a lounge chair. The balcony is a great place to look at the red rocks, the stars, or the grounds, and it is a great place to enjoy a meal as well. An umbrella can be unfolded to give a little shade from the bright southwestern sun.

On Tuesday morning we took a photo tour of the grounds. A local photographer gave us a one-hour lecture on the best places to take photos in the Sedona area, and also gave good advice on equipment and shooting techniques. The time actually spent taking photos was rather short, but fun nonetheless.

The hotel grounds are truly beautiful. The hotel is situated near Oak Creek, which is a shallow waterway which originates somewhere up around Flagstaff, and winds it's way beautifully south, and runs through the middle of Sedona. There were abundant trees which provided ample shade, and many beautiful flowers. The air was clean, dry, and smelled wonderfully of flowers and plants. There were numerous ducks in the creek in the slower moving parts of the creek, and one can feed the ducks early in the morning if one likes.

We enjoyed a day at the pool, which feels wonderful on a hot, dry day. The pool grounds are very clean, and the water is very pleasant. Be careful to wear slippers, the concrete around the pool can get very hot in the sun. Another thing to be careful of is the sun. Sedona is located quite a bit about sea level, and the air is very clear, making for a very bright sun. You can get burned quickly if you aren't careful. There are plentiful towels, and bottled water is always at hand. We shared the pool with a local duck as we swam. The duck made a little mess in the pool, but the staff cleaned the pool quite quickly, which was impressive.

Sedona itself is a beautiful place, very unique. I found it a bit too touristy, the sidewalks were crowded with tourists shopping at the numerous shops, and the shops seemed to sell the usual cheapy tourist-type junk. We did most of our sightseeing outside Sedona, enjoying Red Rocks Park, and the numerous hiking trails located throughout the area. The Adobe Jack trail is located only a minute's drive from the hotel, and is a good place to enjoy a relatively easy hike, and enjoy beautiful scenery.

The service was incredible at L'Auberge. We called in the middle of the night for someone to pick up our dry cleaning, and we called in the middle of the day to ask for forks and spoons so we could eat food we picked up at the grocery store on our balcony. Both times the staff arrived at our door withing minutes. Our car was always brought out quickly by the valet, and the staff were helpful with providing directions.

We had dinner at the hotel restaurant, and found the food to be very good, and reasonably priced. Our table was located next to the creek, and we could enjoy the sound of the water as it rolled by. Unfortunately, the lights attracted numerous flying insects, more than a couple of which found their way into our drinking glasses or plates. There isn't much that can be done about such things, but it was the only annoyance we had during our meal.

Scones and muffins are served in the hotel lobby every morning free of charge, and they are tasty. Coffee and tea are also served, both were very good. You can enjoy your light breakfast on the balcony, and enjoy a view of the grounds. If you want a more substantial breakfast, one can be had at the hotel restaurant.

My husband and I made a quick road trip to Tucson to celebrate a friend's birthday. On the way back to Utah I decided we should stop in Sedona since we had never been there before and wanted to not only see the area and why all the hype about it but to experience two hotels that we had heard about for years as being outstanding. Since we are in the hospitality industry experiencing hotels is a major part of every get-away.

First on the list was L'Auberge. Since this was a last minute decision we phoned while on the road to make our reservation. We luckily got the last creek side cabin. Being unfamiliar with how Sedona is divided into 3 sections we had somewhat of a difficult time finding it. Once there the check-in was a breeze but not terribly warm. We made our way with a pleasant bellman to the cabin furthest away from the reception (if you have physical limitations this would be a problem as no transportation other than your legs is available and there are stairs to climb to get into the cabin) but in a lovely setting directly on peaceful Oak Creek. There really is no view except the trees and the creek which was fine with me as I am from southern Utah and see astounding red rock vistas every day. However, if I had traveled to Sedona for the red rock I would probably have been disappointed.

The room was quite lovely (casually elegant) although being one large room with nothing to break up the space but furniture had an odd furniture layout but did have everything needed. It was obvious mostly from the bathroom layout that this had been an existing cabin now converted into a luxury hotel suite. I didn't quite understand the outdoor shower but each to his own.

We were tried from traveling so opted to order room service for dinner. It was excellent! After dinner I walked to the desk to find the room information directory, placed my hand on the side of the high back desk chair to lean over it and felt a sharp pain. Something had attacked my middle finger and it hurt. I quickly flipped it off although I couldn't exactly see what kind of an insect.... spider? scorpion? just what? it was. My finger was swelling and really hurt. My husband called the front desk and when he told them what had happened and before he could ask for someone to come find the creature the response was "that's too bad, what would you like me to do about it?" Not the most reassuring customer service although they did send a nice man from engineering who found under the lounge chair a very large wasp. Of course, in about an hour the pain subsided as did the swelling. There should have been and incident report filled out by the engineer but apparently never was. although I didn't expect any special treatment or discount, at check-out a nice how are you feeling would have been appreciated. In no way was this even acknowledged. Luckily for them it was not a serious bite.

We retired early into a very comfortable bed with high thread count Egyptian cotton sheets, large just right down pillows, and Sterns and Foster pillow top mattress.

We debated whether or not to stay an extra day but decided after a very good breakfast enjoyed directly on the creek that we would give Enchantment Resort a try for our next night's stay.

I think L'Auberge would be a nice stay for several days (especially if you are hiking and touring) to enjoy the tranquility of the creek and the excellent dining.

Room Tip: Make sure your cabin's porch is facing the creek directly and is not perpendicular to it.

My husband and I stayed here for our 43rd wedding anniversary. From the moment we drove in we were made to feel so special. We stayed in Creekside cottage which was amazing. We had a king size four poster bed, with a beautiful sofa in front of the fireplace. Since it was warm in the evening they lite candles in the fireplace for added romance. The outside shower was awesome, private and very fun!!! We had dinner by the creek and the food was so delicious and it was so romantic. One morning we order room service for breakfast and ate on lovely deck. The pool area is so relaxing. Although it was small it was never crowded, I didn't see many kids. It's such a beautiful place and the grounds are so amazing, I believe couples go there for a special getaway. Thank you for making our 43 Wedding Anniversary so wonderful. Can' t wait to come back...

We stayed at L'Auberge for four nights in the beginning of June and had a truly amazing experience. From the time we pulled into L'Auberge until the time we left, we had impeccible service and a perfect experience. It is nested in the red rocks of Sedona with a creek flowing through it. The bar and restaurant are located right on the creek and the combination of flowing water and beautiful setting make any dinner there truly romantic. We had a two bedroom cabin with a living area and outside porch located right by the creek. The cottage had an outdoor shower that was truly amazing and something I will miss every day! We had a coffeemaker and water in the room and any time we needed ice, all we had to do was call the front desk and it was there in a matter of minutes. They offer free yoga every morning, stargazing some nights, free shuttle service into town and free coffee and scones every morning. The pool and jacuzzi were great too! We also had creekside massages that we loved...thanks Caleb, you were great :)
The only (and I mean only) downside is that the restaurant can be quite expensive. We dined there twice and with a bottle of wine our meal was $300. The food was good but there are other places in town that are better. However, you can't beat the romance of dining by the creek.
We would take a bottle of wine and sit by the creek to watch the ducks each evening before dinner and it was so romantic. Love, love, love this place!!! Keep up the good work!!!

I recently stayed here to celebrate a special anniversary with my husband. L'Auberge was spectacular. We chose a Vista cottage because I'm a sucker for great views. (The other choice were cottages downhill by the creek.) Great mountainous views from our deck, bedroom and even bathroom. The food at L'Auberge's restaurant is excellent and the seating is set up creekside; you feel completely removed from the hustle and bustle of life. The grounds of the hotel are beautiful. The staff provides rides in to town within a specific radius so you don't need to always drive to leave the property.

Only negatives are that the AC in our room blew very cold air. Also, the parking deck where guests' cars are kept was in our line of sight from our Vista cottage deck...slight negative impact on the views.

I highly recommend L'Auberge to others.

Room Tip: If you are selecting a Vista cottage, the views seem to get better the further down the row you go.

We decided to have our wedding at l'Auberge in late May, along the creekside. It was a beautiful day, a beautiful setting, a beautiful bride, and the perfect location for our special day.

Special appreciation goes to Deborah Koontz. She personally got involved in much of the details. She arranged a tour of the facility, and available services, on our "walk-through" a couple weeks earlier. And, her recommendation on an officiate was perfect (ask for Shanandoah).

The cottage had a breathtaking view of the creek. No sooner had we started to unpack, and Debbie had a bottle of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries delivered.

Dinner was arranged, and a table reserved for us in a most-private location creekside, with a full moon rising just as we were seated. The filet mignon was as good as any we've had, and from start to finish, services were impeccable.

We're looking forward to annual visits now. Thanks to all the staff for making this a most-memorable ceremony.

We had been using motels and 'Hampton Inns' for our trip so this was meant to be a treat. it lived up to expectations. Excellent food, great location and fantastic service. Please note that the resort fee covers the tips apart from wait staff.
