We selected a balcony suite for extra room and it was very nice and functional. Very clean, attractive. Not having been to Sedona before, for a first trip would have preferred to be Uptown. West Sedona is fine, tho, the hotel is close to restaurants and very close to Boynton Canyon. The only thing we found amusing was that prior to arrival, we got a couple emails from the hotel (certainly a nice touch), letting us know that they were anxiously awaiting our arrival, suggesting things to do and encouraging us to talk with their concierge. During our stay, the guest services folks were helpful and pleasant, but their emails made us expect really fantastic customer service. I would recommend the Sedona Real for people who don't want to stay in Uptown and want a moderately priced hotel. It was worth the value.
