Historical Traveller Reviews of Hilton Sedona Resort and Spa Hotel
Great for our familyfrom A TripAdvisor Member
First of all, it is not actually in Sedona, but about 15 minutes south in The Village of Oak Creek. It is basically the first thing you get to if you drive from Phoenix. The drive into Sedona is not bad and very scenic. BUT, if you want to see Red Rocks, you have to get a room on the North side, and ask for top floor (it is only three floors tall) We had a view and liked it a lot. You look over homes and strip malls, but Bell Rock is right in front of you.
We checked in earlier than 4 pm and the front desk was very courteous.
We payed $179 for the view room. Our room was a suite-I think msot are.
Kitchenette, dinign tale, couch, chair, gas fireplace, tiny balcony,
bath and bedroom. It was GREAT for us with our 2-year-old. We could put
him to bed and still sit by the fire, have lights on and watch tv. The
bath can be entered from 2 sides.
We had room service 3 times-the first was an hour late and ended up
free, so that was cool. Then we had breakfast and dinner as well-both
fast and hot. Good food and good value too. Great for our toddler!
There are 2 pools, a spa and a gift shop-very nice. Overall the staff
and facility are very good. We would stay there again for the rooms and
pool. If you want absolute pampering and red rock canyons, this is not
he place. It looed ncier and cheaper than many of the closer places and
les touristy. I also think that it is one fo the few golf resorts too.
We ate at the airport-good food and good views of planes. It is minutes
from the best viewpoint too.
Pink Jeep tour Brokenarrow was cool. Very bumpy and "off-roady" It is
not an all inclusive tour of Sedona, just one area. They also offer
ruins tours and longer tours.
Uptown Sedona is touristy, but not any more so than other destination
towns out west.
Comfortable accomodations, lousy front desk servicefrom A TripAdvisor Member
The hotel restaurant was well managed and we enjoyed eating out on the patio in the evening looking out at the Red Rocks. Unfortunately, our only problem with our stay was an inexcusable problem. The front desk staff were rude and unfriendly and the "conceirge service" left much to be desired. Check-in is at 4:00pm. We arrived at 3:45 to find out that our room wasn't ready yet. Ok, technically we were early but the clerk copped an attitude and when we returned a half hour later to check in was curt with us. When we checked out we disputed a charge telling the clerk (different person than check in) that we were told by the conceirge that we would be getting a 10% discount on golf, he replied, "well she was wrong!". End of discussion - no gesture made to make us happy, no adjustment on the bill. The conceirge service was a senior citizen woman, nice enough lady, but she looked and acted like she was volunteering for a church carnival. Most times she was unable to answer even our most basic questions and at times gave us misinformation (see above). One day I asked her to make a reservation for us, and she replied, "I'm just about to go on break - but you can use this phone." I guess I just expected better customer service from a Hilton. I would only recommend this resort to those looking for comfortable accomodations and can overlook sub par front desk/conceirge service.
Beautiful!!! Breathtaking!! Amazing!!from HappyBee
t live up to our expectationsfrom IUJHU
Loved it!from A TripAdvisor Member
The hotel is also within walking distance of an Outlet Mall, where you can eat meals.
Lots of bang-for-your-buck!from RandyPalmer
We checked in on Monday, August 18, 2003 and spent one night. Check-in is officialy at 4:00p.m., check-out is 11:00 a.m. The Hilton's location is awesome with terrific views of the red rocks. The hilton is painted with light colors over dark colors to blend in with the surrounding red rocks. The desk staff was friendly and helpful. Our magnetic room key didn't work initially but that was quickly fixed. We brought some beer and wine and were sad to discover that our suite did not have a refrigerator. One of the room staff provided a corkscreww for my mother's wine and I thought that was nice. We were impressed that the room was sooo large! We had two queen beds in the bedroom and the livingroom couch had a hide-a-bed.
After driving up from our home in Tucson, about 240 miles, we all took a quick nap and then took a dip in the main pool. This is a two-level pool with a waterfall from the upper to the lower. Located next to the upper is a Jacuzzi. The lower pool has a beach type entry in that there are no steps in the shallow end. We found plenty of tools and the area was well kept. The views aren't too great from the pool area as the Hilton and neighboring homes block most of it. I found it unusual that there would be homes whose backyards looked down onto the pool area. I expected more privacy. We noticed lots of families with children of various ages but noted how quiet our room, and the hotel in general, was.
We dined that evening in the main restaurant but rather than be inside we chose the patio, as did many other guests. It was very warm but the water-misters were on and cooling the area very well. The restaurant staff was excellent as was the meal. Be prepared to spend anywhere from $15 to over $25 per plate, however, it was well worth the money spent.
We were very impressed with the taste and quality of the meal.
We had a very restful night and had breakfast in the restaurant the following morning. The breakfast portions seemed huge and were very well prepared. I highly recommend eating at the Hilton. We did not take advatage of the spa facilities and cannot comment on them.
Our suite overlooked the pool area (west-facing view) but if you want terrific views of the red rocks to the east then ask for a front-facing room. Pool view rooms are even-numbered, red rock facing rooms are odd-numbered.
Except for the very minor exceptions previously noted, we decided that the Hilton is a property we must stay at again. We highly recommend the facility.

2) If you are taking the kids, Slide Rock is a must! The cost is 8.00 per vehicle... bring shorts to wear over your swimsuit (girls), I saw many children with holes in the bottoms. 3) Pizza Picasso in Sedona has Great food at reasonable prices. You are seated right away, and if you are a garlic lover, ask for fresh garlic on your pizza... yum! 4) If you are into Indian Ruins, visit Montezuma's Well. It has cliff dwellings and an interesting history of medicinal uses of local plantlife, as well as a lovely stream in the shade (a nice refuge from the summer heat). [We went to the Tuzigoot ruins as well, but frankly, were disappointed] 5) Finally, if you like trains... book a first class ticket on Verde Railroad. The best view is from the open car... but it is nice to travel in style. Tickets are a bit pricey for the 4 hour excursion approx 60.00 per/person... but it comes with one free drink, a few lil' appetizers, and a great view. Hope you enjoy Sedona as much as we did!

Top Local Tips for Sedona
Name your own price We priceline'd the hotel and got an outstanding deal. The Red Rock Jeep Tour is fun and worth the cost.
Viva Italia! Cucina Rustica for dinner is a must! Pricey, but worth it.
Hummer tours On the advice of our concierge, we took a 2-hour sunset tour from Hummer Affair. My 77-yr.-old mother has had both hips and a knee replaced. The Hummer offers a smoother ride than the Jeep tours, plus runs on biodiesel fuel. Regardless of which vehicle tour you choose, getting up close to the Red Rocks with such a knowledgeable driver as guide adds immeasurably to your Sedona experience.
