I booked this hotel sight-unseen for a one-night stay in Sedona. Availability was limited but we did get a ground floor king room that was comfortable and up-to-date.
Cons: For two women, I was disappointed that they put us in an accessible room which had no bathroom counter space, and only one luggage stand, and no free wi-fi unless you were a Kimpton Karma rewards member. It would have also been nice to have an in-room coffee maker, although one could get coffee from the lobby for free starting at 5:30 am. I wasn't aware we were going to get charged an additional $25+ tax for a "resort fee", which included valet parking and access to a free yoga class.
Pros: Fortunately, we had time to take advantage of the free yoga class with Cathleen, and it was wonderful. We didn't need to get the car out again until we checked out because it was within walking distance to lots of nice shops and a variety of restaurants/bars. Another perk of the hotel was a free wine hour with an appetizer in their large outdoor courtyard overlooking a lovely infinity-edge pool and hot tub, plus a great view up to the red rocks. It was easy to strike up conversations with other guests about what to do in the area.
If it weren't for the few cons, I would have rated it Excellent.
