Uptown Sedona might be full of stores, restaurants and art galleries, but West Sedona is where locals actually live -- the stores here are less tourist-y and more convenient. The northern side of the neighborhood is mainly residential, and all the action (shops, restaurants and movie theatres) takes place along busy Highway 89A.
Highway 89A is the busiest and most interesting street in town, with stores, restaurants, bars and movie theatres, so visitors might find this area more convenient than the mainly residential streets to the north. However, hotels in this side of town have more a city feel to them, so you might want to head west on the highway to get a room with unobstructed views of the red rocks.
