L'Auberge de Sedona Rating: 4.5 Pearls
L'Auberge de Sedona has one of the most stunning natural settings in not just the Southwest, but the country, with the picturesque Oak Creek running underneath shady trees, and Sedona's soaring red rocks suspended in the background. The 87 guest rooms and woodsy cottages are spread across 11 acres, allowing guests plenty of privacy, and most come with fireplaces and private decks. It's a premier destination for a romantic getaway or a corporate retreat.
Sedona Rouge Hotel and Spa Rating: 4.0 Pearls
This upper-middle-range boutique in Uptown Sedona has 77 stylish, contemporary rooms with up-to-date technology. Some have views of the red rocks, but the tiny balconies don’t allow for outside seating. The small but well-staffed pool, Jacuzzi, and spa are located in the back of the hotel. The spa offers luxurious extras like a Tranquility Room and a full range of treatments and yoga classes.
