My daughter and I enjoyed two rare days of being together at the Auberge. Restaurant, service and food are outstanding. The location is unique above a whispering river. Life fire in the room's wood burning fireplace.
The only problem we encountered was the King size bed's mattress that conveyed every and any movement we made to each other. This interfered somewhat with sleeping. Hard to understand why as I, for example, at 5'4" weigh only about 113 pounds and every turn I made conveyed to my daughter.
Thanks expedia for putti g this one at the top of your list. I went with my family looking for a quick hop from where we are staying in phoenix. The Amara had everything we needed. Great heated pool and sauna overlooking the creek with the beauy of Sedona Red Rock towering beyond the canyon. Service exceptional Staff informed and always willing to guide you. They are great with kids despite not looking like a kid friendly place. Nobody ever gave us that "You have kids" snarl. And the 5pm happy wine hour was great. Restaurant awesome as well. My only beef was broken door knob that took a little to open. I just assumed this was Amara's attempt at keeping us in a place we were happy in.
With some hotels, you rate it based on size of room, bath room, facilities, etc. With this hotel, it is all about the view. The rooms have a sliding glass door onto a balcony that is right above Oak Creek. Rising above Oak Creek and the surrounding woods are the majestic rock formations of Sedona. The hotel is right in the middle of Sedona with access to shops and restaurants in easy walking distance. However, the rooms are sheltered from the highway and very quiet, so you have the feeling that you are not really in town. If you want a modern, luxury hotel, this isn't it. But, if you want a quaint hotel with clean rooms and a fantastic view in a great location you will be happy at Cedars Resort.
What a fabulous experience, the owners and staff are incredibly friendly & helpful. The hotel itself is full of character, with good sized rooms and the afternoon snacks are a delight! It is within walking distance of the shops and a good base for hiking trips & excursions. Perfect!

The essence of El Portal Sedona is one of timelessness It is a hacienda where strangers are welcomed like family a retreat …More
The amenities were first class. The free shuttle took you anywhere you needed to go in town. The complimentary hot breakfast was excellent. The Inn's location and the view from your room was choice. I really enjoyed the hot apple cider in the lobby. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. The restaurants and spa they recommended were impeccable. The only negative was the 1 dryer and 1 washer laundramat in the hotel. I would definitely stay there again.
