Amara Creekside Resort Hotel Review

: This relative newcomer to Sedona (it opened in August 2003) is nestled near Oak Creek and offers red rock canyon views in multiple directions. The contemporary architecture feels very cozy and Pacific Northwest, but the emphasis on artworks (which hang throughout the property) and the sophisticated New Age health treatments are pure Sedona. Low-slung, burnt red, sandstone terraces overlook Oak Creek and the courtyards. Rooms offer DVD players, ergonomic furniture and high-speed Internet connections, and Wi-Fi is available in public areas and on the patios. (Only ten rooms are directly on the creek; others may face a pool area that can be noisy. To assure peace, quiet and privacy, when booking request creekside accommodations.) Spa treatments run the gamut and incorporate color oils, cleansing Far Eastern herbs and the like. Standard massages and facials are also available. Among the groovy facilities is the heated, therapeutic, saltwater pool, the only one in Sedona. Meeting areas include 3,500 square-feet of indoor space with floor-to-ceiling windows, as well as outdoor venues such as the Oak Creek Courtyard with its al fresco wedding altar.

Not worth the money...

The word spa is used very loosely at this hotel. From the lobby which lacks a fireplace or any other place for guests to congregate, to the Concierge that doesn't seem to know a whole lot about Sedona - this hotel charges like the upscale places, but delivers like a Super 8. Looking for a flat screen? Head to Days Inn. None here. Want to grab a drink? Better not be on Monday or Tuesday - bar is closed. $20 resort fee your thing - well you get a tiny steam room, a tiny pool, and a gym that would shame motel 6.

Steer clear.
