The Amara is in a lovely location along the Oak Creek. The pool area is beautiful and calming. The view from the hot tub is exceptional. The lobby is small but welcoming and comfortable. The rooms, however, need some attention. We reserved a one bedroom creekside suite. The views from our room were lovely, but the room itself is basically 2 older style motel rooms joined together. The suite simply was not a good value. There was no closet and the lighting was poor. The bed linens were wrinkled and lacked the crisp finish one expects at this price point.
On the positive side, the rooms were basically clean. My children stayed in a standard 2 queen room - a much better value and layout then the 1 bedroom suite.
There were many dogs staying at the resort - At times the halls smelled stale - perhaps due to the canine traffic.
From what I learned, this property only recently became a Kimpton. Perhaps with time, they will fix some of the problems and bring the property to its full potential!
