In this post sponsored by Hipmunk, I will give you five options to spend the night in Sedona while you either visit the vortexes, get healed by hippies, or mountain bike the red sandstone canyon’s trails.

The city of Sedona has a lot to offer to its visitors, starting from its location at the foot of the sharp red sandstone formations of the Oak Creek Canyon. Sedona attracts different people for different reasons, and while some come to the city for spiritual motives, some other come only to enjoy outdoors. The area surrounding Sedona is also rich with history, a history that dates back to the first Paleo-Indians settlements in the area and that has seen the Sinagua, Yavapai and Apache inhabiting the region until the arrival of the first British settlers. Over 60 Hollywood productions were set in Sedona, including movies of the likes of Johnny Guitar, Angel and the Badman, Desert Fury, Blood on the Moon, and 3:10 to Yuma.

In Sedona, you will find a broad range of top resorts and Inns.

One of the best resorts and spas in Sedona is the Amara. Roomy, comfortable quarters and top comforts make of this particular hotel the perfect place to set up in Sedona. The resort also offers a salt-water pool and a fitness center. You can also sample New-World cuisine at the resort’s restaurant Salt Rock.

If you are more into the independent motel vibe, then the place for you is the Desert Quail Inn. This motel is a short drive away from most of Sedona’s attractions, and within the premises, you will also find an outdoor pool. If you want to splurge, you can book one of the inn’s King suites that come with either a fireplace or a Jacuzzi.

Another option to sleep in comfort in Sedona is the Sky Ranch Lodge. You will find this hotel rates more than reasonable when compared to the quality of the service offered. The location is also convenient, with views second to none in the area.

If budget is not a concern instead, you should check in at The Adobe Grand Villas, offering luxury and amenities rivalled only by five stars hotels. Each villa comes equipped with a kitchenette, but fear not! You will not need to use it since a personal chef will cook for you privately. As the chef prepares your meals, you can keep busy using the seasonal pool, the indoor whirlpool, or sampling the hors d’oeuvres on offer every afternoon.

To book your accommodation in the city, you can choose Sedona’s Best Western instead. Located a stone throw away from all the exciting venues of downtown, this option will not disappoint if you plan to explore the inner city and its bustling scene.

Sedona is a versatile destination, catering for the most diverse visitors, but if you go, make sure you do not miss the opportunity to visit the Vortexes. Allow yourself to be carried away by the mystique surrounding the spiritual place, and try to feel the energy irradiated by planet Earth’s power.
