Quiet, luxurious and relaxing, this very small hotel is the perfect Sedona get-a-way location. It is actually more of a Hacienda than a hotel. Even though this property is located in a complex with another large hotel and a shopping center, the walls and vegetation surrounding it make you feel that you are out in the country. The rooms huge - suites, really - and well appointed. Each unit is unique, with different shape, size, furnishings and theme. We stayed in #6, The Hile, which had its own little private patio. The staff are friendly and personable. The breakfast is to die for.
There is not much to do at the hotel itself. It is more of a home base from which to launch your expeditions into the wonderful landscape of the Sedona area. There are some fantastic restaurants within walkind distance at the Tlaquepaque shopping center.
Note that my wife and I stayed here in October of 2009. I thought that I had submitted this review at that time, but apparently not.
