This is a really nice hotel, almost top of the line, there were just a couple of aggravations for us. There were many large dogs everywhere on the property. We are not dog people but even if we were it's odd to see so many...More

A true professional, Manager of Housekeeping, Jesse Limon turned an otherwise average (by Kimpton standards) experience into one we left feeling very satisfied about. He is a true asset to management, and we appreciated all his efforts in making good on a particular situation.

Hi....I am not a weather expert...but.. April is Spring in Sedona...and I gather that it is beautiful, but not "hot". You might want to check weather sites to get an idea of the weather that time of year.

It has a bar fridge with stuff to buy in it in it. No microwave. Don't remember a coffee maker but coffee was available in the morning in the lobby.
