Hilton Sedona Resort at Bell Rock

Arizona, USA

The hotel

The wow-inducing setting’s the first thing you’ll notice when you rock up at this hotel – and you’ll soon see why its home has been dubbed ‘the most beautiful place in America’. But this is a hotel of contrasts, and the iconic fiery red rocks of Sedona are the backdrop for the impossibly lush fairways of its championship 18-hole golf course, the shimmering waters of its outdoor pools, and the cool serenity of its spa. Standing like scarlet-clad sentinels, the famous red rocks can be seen as you dine on the poolside terrace at Blue Water Café, just one of Hilton Sedona Resort at Bell Rock’s three eateries – and, although it’s mere minutes from the outdoor adventures the scenery promises (and from shops, restaurants, and galleries) the hotel’s loaded with so many attractions you’ll never need to leave its grounds.

This was my first time visiting this property and I was disappointed. Check in time: A Thursday and an early check in was not an option, even for Honors members which was okay because the hope was that additional time was being taken to ensure the cleanliness of the rooms. Not so great was the wait...almost 30 minutes...as only one person was checking in guests. Digital Key was not showing as available so we couldn’t avoid the line. The front desk clerk was pleasant. Room/hotel: We were greeted with a fly. First time I’ve ever stayed at a property where I had to deal with files in the room. This didn’t set a good tone but overall the room appeared to be clean. The pest nuisance returned when it was time to hit the hay. I was bitten several times on my ankles, chest and wrist on each night of our stay. I wasn’t sure if these were mosquitos or gnats but it was horrible and made it difficult to sleep. I did let the front desk know. This is an older property and though it appears that updates have been made to the rooms, the common areas including the hallways are a bit drab and some of the patio furniture was pretty worn. Someone was actually painting the walls when we arrived. Another issue is that rooms are only being clean upon request so piles of towels and garbage sat outside doors. This was so unsightly and unsanitary. Dining: Problems. Rude staff with no regard for customer service. I won’t go into detail because it would make this post even longer, but just know this is an opportunity area where improvement needs to be made. To be fair, we had a wonderful breakfast the first full day of our stay. Dinner service and the next days breakfast was so bad, we decided to pack up and head out. I voiced my complaints to the front desk and Jace was super apologetic as was Jesus, the restaurant Manager. Overall: As a 4 Star resort, we expected and deserved more, I know Hilton and they are better than this. I did receive a follow-up call from the hotel director which I appreciated and he apologized and acknowledged some of the shortcomings. I will visit this property again and anticipate there will be positive changes. Read less

This Hilton property is just amazing. The location is perfect in the Village of Oak Creek which was a cute suburb of Sedona and only 8 miles away from downtown. There we could eat, hike, and shop in a less crowded location. The hotel its self was just perfect. For this stay we upgraded our room to a Balcony Rock View Suit and it was beyond… Read more
This Hilton property is just amazing. The location is perfect in the Village of Oak Creek which was a cute suburb of Sedona and only 8 miles away from downtown. There we could eat, hike, and shop in a less crowded location. The hotel its self was just perfect. For this stay we upgraded our room to a Balcony Rock View Suit and it was beyond worth it. Spacious room with separate living space with a wet bar and fireplace. Large well appointed bathroom. Beautiful bedroom with the most comfortable bed. Then there was the balcony and the view. What a view! Customer service was on point from check in to assistance with our stay extension. Hilton is committed to a high level of cleanliness in this time of COVID, and I appreciated the touches to feel very safe. I can't recommend this hotel enough for a family or couple's getaway.

We spent one night here, and had a basic two-queen room. The room was absolutely tiny--about the smallest I've ever stay in anywhere. Like Motel 6 size.

We spent one night here, and had a basic two-queen room. The room was absolutely tiny--about the smallest I've ever stay in anywhere. Like Motel 6 size. The main reason we stayed here was so my daughter could swim at the very nice pool here. However, the day I was to check in, I received a text saying the pool is only open for very limited hours, and they also capped the pool at a low number of guests due to the coronavirus. I specifically looked for any info like this on their website prior to booking and found none. We were able to swim for about an hour and a half our first day there (before the pool closed for cleaning), and then when we tried to go back the next morning, they had already met their limit so we couldn't swim there. They do have an arrangement of sorts to let guests swim at the next door athletic club, which we did, but it was a very lackluster pool. The dining at the resort was excessively expensive--more than NYC expensive (I was just in NYC in February). One egg (nothing on the side) costs $8. Belgian waffles (with nothing on the side) was $17. If you want a side of potatoes, that will be $8. The food wasn't anything special, either. Also, as a Hilton Honor's Gold Member, I am was to a free breakfast. All they offered was a croissant, cup of fruit, and glass of orange juice. I stayed at the Hilton in Palm Springs a few months ago, and they offered a complete breakfast plate--eggs, bacon, potatoes, etc. I don't feel like I got my money's worth here. Read less

I stayed here with some friends for 2 nights. Property was fantastic even with COVID-19 changes. The room was classic Hilton with an excellent view of Bell Rock from the balcony, comfortable beds and wonderful bathroom with glass shower door/good water pressure. Best views are from rooms on the north side of the hotel with room numbers above 70 facing north away from the resort. Pool was nice with a sanitation schedule be aware of with food and beverage service. The resort restaurant has a great patio with a limited menu during the week that was very good. Isiah and Josh at the restaurant crushed the service. Overall, bravo y’all, keep up the good work during these tough times. Read less
