Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

Cons

  • The Safeway grocery next door intrudes on the view from certain rooms
  • Tiny balconies

Bottom Line

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. If views are a priority, the slightly less stylish Best Western Arroyo Roble features larger balconies with good views for around the same same price. But it lacks the Rouge Hotel's luxury spa.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Scene

Contemporary building with lush courtyard and a small but inviting pool

The Observation Deck
The Observation Deck

The Mediterranean-and-Spanish-themed Rouge was built in 2005, and features a small lobby and spacious courtyard that contains a splashing fountain, red tile floors, and works of art. Reds Restaurant, the hotel’s contemporary bistro lounge and bar, sits on the front of the property beside the courtyard, while the pool, Jacuzzi, and spa are located in the back of the hotel. The pool isn’t large, but it is staffed, so guests can get their ice water refilled while they lounge -- a nice touch. The spa offers a Tranquility Room and a full range of treatments and yoga classes.

Views are nice from the observation deck on top of the hotel, although the adjacent Safeway grocery store parking lot does intrude a bit. But some may consider the nearby store a convenience instead of a mood-killer.

 Location

On a busy street in the center of Sedona, next to a Safeway

The Rouge fronts Sedona’s busiest street (Highway 89A) and occupies the middle of town, so you won't get the nature experience offered at other resorts like the Junipine. But the tradeoff is convenience: There is plenty of convenient shopping and dining close by. There’s a Safeway grocery next door, more businesses across the street, and a residential area to the north.

The red rock cliffs are farther from the Rouge than from some other hotels in Sedona, so the views can be ho-hum by comparison, but many hiking trails are within a five-minute drive.

  • 2-hour drive from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport
  • 10-minute drive from Sedona Airport
  • 5-minute drive to the Thunder Mountain Trail
  • 10-minute drive to Uptown Sedona (a.k.a. Main Street), a stretch of Highway 89A that's lined with shops, restaurants, and art galleries
  • 10-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)
  • 15-minute drive to Boynton Canyon Trail
  • 20-minute drive to Slide Rock State Park
  • 20-minute drive to Red Rock Crossing
  • 20-minute drive to Sedona Golf Resort

 Rooms

Modern, comfortable rooms, some with good views of the red rocks

Spa Guest Suite
Spa Guest Suite

The Rouge was built in 2005, and its 77 rooms continue to look clean and contemporary. Red-and-white bedding, curtains, and paint match the Sedona landscape, and dark wood furniture accents the earthy tones. Most rooms have large walk-in showers with two showerheads (one on the wall, and a rain showerhead on the ceiling).

Good views of the red rocks can be had on the 2nd and 3rd floors in north-facing rooms.

  • Mini-fridge and coffeemaker
  • 32-inch flat-screen TV
  • Simmons Super Plush Pillow Top mattress
  • Patio or step-out balcony
  • The Deluxe Sedona and Deluxe Red Rock Rooms are identical, except for the views.
  • The Premier Sedona and Premier Red Rock rooms feature gas fireplaces and vaulted ceilings. They're identical except for the views.
  • The Courtyard Suite is a ground-level room with sleeper sofa, king bed, and separate office that offers direct access to the pool.
  • The Alhambra and Andalusia Suites are the largest rooms available (at 500 square feet) and each come with two bathrooms and a gas fireplace.
  • The Spa Guest Rooms and Spa Guest Suites are located in the spa building and feature soaking tubs in the living rooms. The Spa Guest Suites are larger, with a separate bedroom and large living area.

 Features

Large spa and an observation deck

 Food

A popular American restaurant with live music

Reds Restaurant serves upscale American comfort food prepared by Chef Rom Moler for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It's a lively, popular spot, with live music offered most nights. Reds provides room service and poolside service.

 Bottom Line

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. If views are a priority, the slightly less stylish Best Western Arroyo Roble features larger balconies with good views for around the same same price. But it lacks the Rouge Hotel's luxury spa.
