One big draw of this delightful town is the fact that so many hotels feature breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains, reflecting red in the sun. One fine choice is the Southwest Inn at Sedona. Featuring mini-fridges, complimentary coffee and gas fireplaces, the hotel also offers up a swimming pool and spa and is nearby both outdoor activities and art galleries and restaurants. Enjoy being allowed to include your pet in your vacation so they, too, can enjoy the nature trails.

For those wanting a view and to be walking distance to many of the attractions the town offers, perhaps the Orchards Inn of Sedona is for you. Rooms offer Wi-Fi and cable tv, all with balconies, many overlooking Red Rocks. The pool and Jacuzzi deck also overlooks the natural magnificence and uptown Sedona is just a short walk away. As with the Southwest Inn at Sedona, your furry friends are always welcome.

If communing with nature is your goal, The Wildflower Inn is less than one mile to Bell Rock Pathway. The rooms will pamper your senses with refrigerators, microwaves, and coffee pots. Organic bath products, Wi-Fi, and cable tv are also all part of the package. Free coffee and newspapers is available each morning to wake you up and get you moving for a day of hiking or a drive into town for browsing galleries and sample the delicious Tex-Mex cuisine.

Close to it all, the Sedona Real Inn & Suites pampers guests, both two-legged and four-legged, with a park space, fitness center, outdoor pool, laundry, and spa treatments. All rooms offer a fridge, microwave, and coffee maker and a free breakfast bar is also offered every morning to get you off to a good start. Both outdoor activities and the urban prowls of town are a mere 10-minute drive away.

For the urbanite, more interested in the culture and shopping options of town than physical pursuits, the La Quinta Inn Sedona/Village of Oak Creek is a great choice. Although this hotel features all of the expected amenities such as Wi-Fi, robes, and free breakfast, the real draw is the location in Oak Creek Village, playing host to an array of galleries, shops, restaurants and even Tlaquepaque, a recreated Mexican village.

Regardless of which lodging choice is your preference, Sedona has enchanted visitors for years and will continue to offer up a wide array of activities. Some come for the outdoor pursuits, some for the art and culture, and some for spiritual enlightenment. But all who come vow to return again one day.
