Very clean and an unbeatable location. We saw that they were very dog friendly. The staff is super attentive. The restaurant over looks a court yard that has Adirondack chairs, corn hole and lounge chairs. Very comfortable environment to chill with a cocktail, view gorgeous rock formations and people watch. Our room was on the first floor so it was really enjoyable to just walk out the sliding doors and have access to the amenities.

Such an amazing resort! My wife and I spent the weekend there with our French Bulldog, and we had the most amazing weekend! The rooms are spacious and comfortable, and the staff is incredibly friendly! Such a dog friendly resort, with water bowls and dog treats in the lobby. The bartenders are friendly, with free happy hour every evening. Lawn games, an infinity pool, and just a great relaxed atmosphere. We will definitely be coming back!

We enjoyed our stay at this location and the service here was much appreciated. It made the stay more enjoyable. The pictures and the views are as good as advertised. Amazing. The Amara is very comfortable and we will return one day. The Sedona area is a gem. Absolutely gorgeous.

This is a really nice hotel right next to the Oak Creek river. The hotel is within walking distance from pretty much everything in Sedona. Our room was very nice and colorful with a patio that had access on the pool/hot tub area and spa. They offer a complimentary valet and shuttle service which was very useful. They also offer complimentary pet beds, treats, and bowls. Dogs are welcomed everywhere in the resort. The employees were very friendly and helpful. They went above and beyond to make our trip memorable.

Outstanding hotel and resort. Was there for a annual corporate/board meeting and the service was outstanding. The resort is close to Oak Creek and downtown area (walking distance). It also has an awesome infinity pool with cabanas. Use of the spa facility, such as the eucalyptus steam room, is free for hotel guests. There is also free valet parking (however it is good to tip the staff). On the down side, the beds we're a little hard and I woke up sore. I have a Tempurpedic mattress so I'm used to a certain comfort level. Can't wait to return. Highly recommend.

Decent hotel. Don't love that there isn't access to an ice machine. They say they can bring I've to your room but it's not very much when you're trying to pack a cooler. Good views.

It was our first time staying at this hotel and we love it. Their customer services here is excellent. From valet parking guys, to front desk, to room services they were fast and super helpful. Kevin, from the front desk was so helpful and super friendly; he had a smile on his face the whole time helping us even though it was 10pm. Very knowledgeable of the area too. The room is super clean. It has almost everything you need there. Our room was by the creek, so it was quiet and peaceful.

Stayed as part of a company annual retreat. Our group reserved a large portion of the hotel. Our room was very nice with an extra large spa tub. The staff were all extremely friend and helpful for the duration of our stay. Room service was extremely expensive, but good quality (we paid $15 for a plate of fruit for our baby. Quite the markup). The pool was lovely and there's a little hiking path along the creek that we really enjoyed. The wine hour in the evening was a nice social addition to our stay. I enjoyed a 30 minute massage from the spa which was a wonderful way to relax.

My experience at Amara Resort was absolutely incredible. The most important thing I will mention is that I was traveling with my dog. Not only did the staff welcome him with open arms, but there is NO pet fee or breed restrictions! They offer complimentary pet beds, bowls and treats. Dogs are allowed everywhere and on the restaurant patio. I had a courtyard room so my sliding glass door went right into grass, which was extremely convenient for taking my dog out. This resort has the friendliest staff. I travel A LOT with my dog, and this was the best service I've ever received. The service at SaltRock restaurant is also extraordinary. They made me feel special. The views are wonderful and the food was great! In the morning there is delicious coffee in the lobby. The resort is within walking distance of several shops and restaurants. My favorite part of the resort grounds was having access to Oak Creek. It was so peaceful. I cannot wait to visit this resort again. The entire staff went above and beyond to make our trip unforgettable.

Wonderful stay at Amara! The rooms are lovely and very clean - nice little patio with two chairs outside of room. Great infinity pool with an awesome view of the Red Rocks, including Snoopy Rock! Can't say enough things about the staff - from the quick and friendly valet service to the wonderful wait staff at the pool bar. Loved eating and drinking at Salt Rock - bartenders Eddie and Artie are so nice and the drinks are definitely on point! We used the complimentary shuttle to eat at Mariposa our last night which is another nice amenity. I received a facial at the Spa with June and that service also exceeded my expectations. We will be back most definitely!

*PURELY CUSTOMER SERVICE BASED* I placed a call to the Kimpton Amara in Sedona, Arizona in the early afternoon asking some very specific questions. The woman on the phone said to send her an e-mail with the details and that she would forward the message on. I received an e-mail back from another staff member in about two hours--something that I never would have imagined--with all of the answers that I needed and more! The staff that I have interacted with has been kind, open, informative, helpful, and just all around spectacular! Thank you so much for all of your help!!

Thought for the price it would have been an above average facility. Room was missing hand towels one day, area around the outdoor fireplaces had dirty dishes and glasses several nights with no service, one set of sheets had some dirt....all of these are easy fixes to improve service level. Good food but why have the same soup for five days. Again, I expected better for the price.

A great blend of luxury and comfort in a beautiful and intimate setting. Friendly service as with all kimpton hotels, very nice pool area and dining. Rooms were also great. The gym left something to be desired but was perfectly adequate....just a few things to use. I wouldn't have bothered with a gym if I didn't have little kids anyway. A great place!

I expect more for what I paid. Service was great but the rooms are in need of an update. The bathroom orientation (sink size and lighting) was ridiculous. It is very conveniently located, once you walk up the steep hill. Also some rooms (ours) are a real hall from the lobby, including stairs and doors as you move between buildings. I would have been happy for 1/2 the price.

Great hotel with strong attention to detail. Many unique events, from a complimentary happy hour to a morning coffee bar. Nice hot tub with world-class views, especially at sunrise.

Had the nicest time at the resort. The staff is so incredibly helpful and kind and go above and beyond to make you feel welcome. I came with my boyfriend for his birthday and they made it so special for him (they gave him a birthday card at dinner that had been signed personally by the staff that day). We even booked a massage at the spa there and that was also amazing. The therapists were great anf they gave us a toast at the end to celebrate his birthday as well. All around amazing trip, will definitely be coming back and recommending to others.

I would have loved to give this hotel a better review. But for a place that has "resort" in its name, I would expect more. Full disclosure, we were guests of a big company for a media trip, so we did not pay for the room. The room was ok, a bit noisy until 9:30 pm as there is the bar's patio right underneath our balcony. The problem was an incredible shaking/trembling that would come on and off during the day and night, including late or early depending how you look at it. The entire room would start vibrating at 3 am waking us up. I called the reception and the person I talked to had absolutely no idea what I was talking about. She did not offer to send someone to investigate, she did not offer an explanation and she did not offer anything along the lines of "we'll look into it". The next day, when we came back to our room to change for the evening, the trembling was ongoing. I went downstairs to talk to one of the receptionists, and she told me that this vibration was caused because of the fans of the kitchen that they turn on at the end of the evening for a little while. When I told her that it was on when I left the room, she practically dismissed it. Again, no investigation of the matter whatsoever. Nice place, really nice pool and view (the view is everywhere in Sedona), but not particularly top-notch as the name might suggest.

We recently had our wedding here and it was the best experience I could have ever asked for. Everyone there exceeded my expectations! The hotel grounds and rooms are beautiful. The ambiance and perks are top notch. And the staff are all beyond helpful and welcoming. The onsite restaurant is also phenomenal! All of our guests were talking about how beautiful our wedding was and how tasty the food was for weeks. I can't wait to come back here many more times.

I have been here a few times over the last few years for various reasons. I've only stayed here once and it was shortly after it initially opened. Whether staying or part of an event, everyone is always very helpful and polite. Everything is taken care of and the rooms are very nice. Especially those along the creek.

This resort is in the heart of Sedona and is nestled down in a valley with pretty views of surrounding mountains. The rooms are big and one of ours faced the pool deck and had a nice view on the patio. They gave us coupons for being Kimpton members (sign up before you book) and we got $30 of food drinks for free. They went the extra mile with in lending us 3 bikes to tour the area and telling us which way to go and giving us cold waters! Here is my mainstay in future trips to Sedona

The valets we're great, the food was great, the pool and social activities were excellent. The room left something to be desired. Not very sound proof, the bed had loud spring noises, and the shower never worked. It was either freezing cold or scalding hot with literally no in between. For as expensive as this place is, they need to spend more time making sure the rooms are better. Update: We raised our concerns to the manager and they were very accommodating and helped us out with the room. I would consider coming here again if and when I go back to Sedona.

This is the the most friendly and accommodating Hotel I have ever stayed in. The complimentary items and offers are beyond typical 4 star hotels. The staff is very friendly with smiley service.

The resort is literally smashed on top of another property, my balcony overlooked L'Auberge balcony. You can hear people make phone calls through the walls and bang doors at 5:30AM ( i only ask to sleep until 8..its vacation). Also needs blankets, it's cold in the desert at night. Also, should be able to have Hot tea in my schedule, not run to lobby or call to desk...get tea /coffee pots.Upside, great view and wine hour. All staff extremely nice and gracious

We went for dinner to saltlake restaurant. Its located on the Kimpton premises. The food was delicious and the only problem we had is to order what we could finish. We tried corn soup, guacamole, salad, chicken sandwich and finished with ice cream. Everything was great. Outside sitting has a great view of the mountains.

I would give them 10 stars if I could. This place is absolutely gorgeous. The staff is so well trained we felt like royalty. Their desire to provide the best experience possible and the best service I've ever had a hotel. If you like to travel with your dog, this is THE place to go! They will have a welcome sign out front with your dog's name on it the day you check in. The staff treated our dog like a member of their family. And the courtyard and creek out back are amazingly beautiful.

Great location to explore Sedona. In the center of the little strip of town. Very comfortable and welcoming. Points off for no coffee maker in the room (they did provide morning coffee in the lobby) and for the 6 am fire alarm that had all guests headed into the cold outdoors

We had an amazing time here. We had a courtyard view, which means your balcony leads out toward the pool, patio and mountain view (would highly recommend). The staff was very nice and accommodating, and the hotel itself hosts free coffee in the morning and wine in the evening. It was great to take a glass of wine out onto the patio area, pull a couch up near the fire pits, and take in the beautiful sunset. It's also in a great location, near all the local shopping and not far from some good hikes. Amara also has a shuttle that will take you to, or pick you up from, anywhere within a mile. It was really convenient to have after a late night dinner.

It's a very lovely resort with beautiful views and nice amenities. It's dog friendly so it was nice to be able to bring my furry buddy with me. Staff were all courteous and friendly. The only complaints would be that the food is good but not great and, along with the drinks, are very expensive - though that's all probably to be expected.

The rooms were clean and comfortable. :) I was expecting a little better of a view honestly. We got the creekside suite and the trees were alittle overwhelming and couldn't see the rock formations in the back but that's the The staff was beyond friendly and made me feel welcome. We ate both dinner and breakfast there and the restaurant was also amazing. The staff there was polite and efficient. Thank you guys. We will be back.

beautiful place but a 5 store resort should b just that. it should b better than the home I am vacationing from however. the bad lay out in the rest rooms makes water flood bathroom also moldy slimy substance growing down the side of granite tub that my child put his fingers in. lucky I was watching and he didn't get in his mouth. Bad repair marks on the walls in rooms. surrounding area is what makes this place what it is cuz if u look too closely, it's just fake nice. and the one safety hazard for my children was the room we were in had no patio lights. nice patio off our room, tables chairs but no light. that is the dumbest and unsafe thing. Happy travels.

My husband and I stayed here over 4th of July weekend and had an amazing time! The staff is courteous, accomodating and attentive! They are truly pet friendly too! There are only two areas the dogs were not allowed, the pool and the turf. There were complimentary dog beds and food & water bowls waiting in the room, when you sit down for a meal at Salt Rock they immediately poor a bowl of water for the pups and every single staff member went out of their way to greet our pups when they crossed them! The shuttle will take you and pick you up from anywhere within a mile of the hotel, when you call the front desk from your room they greet you by name and at check out, all we had to do was call guest services to let them know we were ready and they sent a bellman for our bags, had our car waiting out front and loaded it for us! Oh, and the bar makes the best Amaretto Sour I've ever had! We will be staying in only Kimpton hotels from now on!!

Really enjoyed my one night here. Great for price. Don't miss walking down the creek in the back :). We had a nice meal outside with an AMAZING view and live guitar. Get a room on the second floor, there was a bit a noise from the maid service cleaning the room upstairs early Sunday morning.

Ardi makes the best drinks in town. He is also very open minded and open to suggestions. We created a drink with coppercity bourbon and luxaurdo Cherrys that was excellent and will replace my go to old fashion when arriving at Amara. We deem it Corncopp. Order it if you like whiskey! He also made my gf a great vodka and cran.

My Wife (Fiance at the time), son and I decided last minute to drive up to Sedona from our getaway in Phoenix for ten days to have a small wedding Ceremony at Cathedral Rock (just the three of us). Amara set us up with a lovely room last minute over-looking their courtyard/pool/restaurant area. The spa was able to accommodate a facial while my son and I relaxed poolside in a cabana before our room was ready. They delivered congratulatory champagne and chocolate covered strawberries after we settled in...a nice touch, and the room service dinner we had that evening was delicious. Perfect for the three of us. The infinity pool overlooks the river, which provided the perfect ambiance for our post-nuptial relaxation. Thank you Amara!

Gorgeous hotel. Beautifully decorated in a modern motif and easy to get around in. I give 5 stars for the following reasons - The valet is included. Not only that, every valet attendant we encountered was more than helpful, genuinely friendly, energetic and nice. We were happy to tip :) not just from obligation. They also offer a shuttle service for up to 1 mile from the hotel if you want to go somewhere. They had absolutely no problems going beyond that and didn't fall back on the excuse of policy, like you would expect. The rooms are nice, CO Bigelow in the bathroom and other items for purchase (anything you need right there if you need it you don't have to call down -$ razor, kind bars, toothbrush, lover's kit etc) The courtyard area is really cool. They have firepits and chairs where we sat in the late evening and had a drink. They have oversized games in the lawn for children to play (checkers, bean bag toss) the hot tub was near the pool which was really cool and had a beautiful view (of course) and little cabanas. we were completely happy with our stay- no complaints at all. Wouldn't change anything except maybe a lower rate ;)
