Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Views of red rocks from certain rooms
  • 7 miles from Sedona, with a more relaxed atmosphere
  • Spacious suites with living rooms, kitchenettes, and fireplaces
  • Free three-course gourmet breakfast
  • Free daily appetizers and cookies
  • Free Wi-Fi and free self-parking

Cons

  • No pool
  • No on-site fitness center (though off-site fitness center available to use)

Bottom Line

The upper-middle-range Las Posadas offers 20 spacious, bed-and-breakfast-style suites in a quiet corner of Sedona, seven miles from the busy Uptown area. Guests come for the huge suites with kitchenettes, living rooms, and fireplaces, as well as the homey atmosphere, which extras like the three-course gourmet breakfast, daily appetizers, and cookies (all free) help create. But don't expect much in the way of amenities -- the property lacks a pool and on-site fitness area.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Scene

Informal and intimate, with stunning surroundings -- but not much to do on-site

Las Posadas of Sedona
Las Posadas of Sedona

Las Posadas is a luxury bed-and-breakfast suited for romantic couples, business travelers, and families alike. It's not a sprawling resort, and lacks the amenities of a larger property. Rather, Las Posadas strives to satisfy guests by offering huge, clean suites and a homey atmosphere.

Buildings are pink to match the surrounding landscape. The lobby is tiny compared to most hotels in Sedona, but the suites are the opposite -- cavernous, some equipped with full kitchens, and ready to accommodate big groups for days at a time.

There's no restaurant here, but the free three-course breakfast is a gourmet affair.

 Location

7 miles south of Sedona in the Village of Oak Creek, with popular hiking trails nearby

Las Posadas is in a residential area in the Village of Oak Creek, but is only a short drive from shops and restaurants. The Sedona Golf Resort's 18 holes of championship golf are less than a mile away.

The Village of Oak Creek is seven miles south of Sedona, and is also spectacularly nestled among soaring red sandstone buttes. Unlike busy, often-congested Sedona, it's easier to get around here. Several excellent restaurants, a handful of galleries, and many hiking trails are available nearby, so a trip to Sedona isn't necessary in order to enjoy the area. Yet a vehicle will come in handy once guests decide to explore the region.

Guests may be intrigued to learn that the Sedona area was inhabited in the 1200s by the Sinagua Indians ("sin agua" is Spanish for "without water"), who left behind stone ruins, rock art paintings, and other evidence of their culture. Today, people can visit archeological sites tucked away in the Coconino National Forest (much of the land surrounding Sedona is National Forest) such as V-Bar-V Petroglyph Site, which is only 15 minutes from Las Posadas.

Hiking and mountain biking are among the best ways to experience the area. With scores of trails that begin within town, visitors can easily hike and bike to their hearts' content at places like Jack's Canyon, Courthouse Butte, Bell Rock, and Cathedral Rock. The terrain can vary from easy to strenuous, from hot sun-baked red rock desert, to cool and wet riparian corridors that give life to ferns, mosses, and wildflowers.

Just don't come here expecting bustling nightlife -- after dark, the town goes to sleep.

  • 2-hour drive from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport
  • 30-minute drive from Sedona Airport
  • 5-minute drive to Bell Rock
  • 5-minute drive to the Sedona Golf Resort
  • 15-minute drive to V-Bar-V Petroglyph Site
  • 15-minute drive to Uptown Sedona (a.k.a. Main Street), a stretch of Highway 89A that's lined with shops, restaurants, and art galleries
  • 20-minute drive to Red Rock Crossing
  • 20-minute drive to Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village, a lovely shopping area with cobblestones, a fountain, and art galleries (where you can sometimes watch artists at work)
  • 30-minute drive to Slide Rock

 Rooms

Kitchen of a One-Bedroom Villa
Kitchen of a One-Bedroom Villa

Las Posadas' 20 suites are each individually decorated and appointed. They're the opposite of what you'd get at a corporate chain -- homey and informal, but still upscale. Works of art by local artists hang on the walls, and the furniture is handcrafted. Tech features are mostly up-to-date, although there is the occasional tube TV lurking in a bedroom armoire. Granite countertops, stone and tile baths, and double-sided fireplaces are nice touches.

 Features

Free Wi-Fi and an use of an off-site fitness center

 Food

Free three-course gourmet breakfast

Guests get a free three-course breakfast every morning (sample items include apple and brie quiche and blueberry brown sugar scones), as well as free appetizers and fresh cookies delivered daily to their rooms. Room service during limited hours is available.
