This is our second visit to the Hyatt Pinon Pointe in Sedona. Our first visit was 4 years ago on a timeshare promotion. The last minute rates were palatable 159/night for non-Vacation club members (Sedona has a stratospheric 13% hotel sales tax). We were not interested in a timeshare promotion ($119.00/night if sit through a 2hr presentation).
The hotel is in a great central location, with great views of the red rocks (Sedona landmark). Opposite the hotel is the very affordable and excellent WildFlower cafe (quite crowded at 3pm on a Wednesday) and Coldstone Creamery (ice cream).
We had a 1 bedroom unit, 222B, which had a great view of the red rocks from the balcony, steps to the swimming pool and Wildflower restaurant. Rustic feel, with gas fireplace with nice brick surround, large TV (no Disney channel). Approx 700SF, nice tile in kitchen, entry and bathroom, 9ft ceilings, enormous dining table, jet tub, free internet and deep patio. Request building 1,2,3, or 4 in the front, 2nd or 3rd floor for great views from the balcony. Plenty of parking in front of the building (37 steps to access unit).
Some mixup on initial registration, put in a room in the new wing, which was already occupied. Be careful as Hyatt is currently adding a new phase, which is some distance from the current building. Guest services was very apologetic and received a really nice unit with great views.
Pool area is clean, with two jacuzzis. A little anal about pool towels, having to provide last name, room number, checkout date, and signature, and then checking back in when leaving the pool. Reception was pretty unhelpful with late checkout, wanting to charge $20.00/hr after 11am. Difficulty getting the room keys to work, a minor irritation, but confused as to why this occurred, as had to issue room keys three times in the two nights we stayed there.
We love Sedona, and try to visit 1 or 2 weekends a year, staying in Oak Creek Canyon in summer months, and the main town in Spring and Fall. Very accessible hiking trails within a couple of miles of the hotel. Purchase a Red Rocks pass ($20.00/yr or $5.00/day) to park at any of the trail heads, from Sedona visitor center.
* Brins Mesa Trail (TH at end of Jordan Road 2 mi) 1.2 mile hike to the Mesa, for great sunrise views (and sunset) of Sedona. Can extend to Soldier Pass trail and return on Jordan trail for 5.5mi roundtrip.
* Broken Arrow Trail (TH access from Sombart Ln, 1 mi South on 179), beautiful trail early in the morning, 3.0mi roundtrip.
* Cathedral Rock Trail (access from Poco Diablo resort, 3mi South on 179), 0.5 mi steep trail, phenomenal sunset view.
* Doe Mountain Trail (8mi follow Dry Creek Rd, to Boynton Pass Rd) 0.6 mi moderate trail. Beautiful views of all the red rocks, best early or late in the day. Also visit Boynton canyon 1mile West for an easy 4.0mile (roundtrip) hike into very pretty canyon.
