I went to Sedona for work but made sure that I got out and saw the town. There were a lot of little touristy shops along the main area on the town that varied from souvenir shops to nice art galleries. You can see red rock from all over town. I was there in July, so it was pretty warm but not unbearable. I decided to go for a night hike and actually ended up in a lightning storm, which was actually really cool to watch, as I have never seen anything like it. The lightning strikes lit up the rock. If you go, I suggest that you make sure you get out of the main town area and explore the scenery!${QuickSuggestions} Definitely get out and enjoy the red rock!${BestWay} Definitely get out and enjoy the red rock!

Sedona Rouge Hotel and Spa

This is a brand new hotel that just opened spring of 2005. It is in Sedona, but not on the main strip. The rooms were awesome with huge goosedown comforters that you just wanted to run an jump into. My room had a fireplace, vaulted ceilings, and the really cool thing that I haven't seen often was the LCD flat-screen television hanging on the wall. I am a smoker, but the hotel is entirely non-smoking rooms.

I did visit the spa and got a massage. The cool thing about the spa was that rather than really ordering a particular kind of massage, they interview you and build the massage or treatment around you and your needs.

The Reds Restuarant was really good, I suggest that you try their mac-and-cheese (interesting for a nicer restaurant, but it was actually really good and I am a bit of a cheesehound).

I didn't get a chance to visit the pool or fitness room, but they both looked really nice. Oh, one interesting thing too, is that the bathroom I had, had a big shower with rain shower heads, rather than a small bathtub with shower. The service was great; I am definitely going to go back!

I went to Sedona in the middle of the week, and I am a bit of a night owl. I was a little disappointed to find out that there isn't much of a nightlife on the weeknights (there may be on the weekends), which was why I ended up going for a night hike, which actually turned out to be much better than going to the bars anyways. Be aware, though, that grocery stores and gas stations all seem to close early. I had a bit of an adventure getting hold of a flashlight.
