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.

The room was extremely expensive for the old and not well maintained room and bathroom. Very disappointing for the Hilton. The breakfast was good but service was extremely slow. I am not sure I will ever again chose Hilton again if another option is available.

Loved this Hilton! Beautiful location & facility. Close to Bell Rock for hiking. Room had a great view. We are at the restaurant for several meals & enjoyed the food. Sitting area was gorgeous outside back at the hotel. Customer service and concierge gave good recommendations.

I had a wonderful stay at the Hilton sedona thanks to the clean and comfortable rooms, the attentive housekeeping, and the great staff - front desk employees, pool bartender and others. I highly recommend the red rock view if available. I am not sure why the reviews of this hotel are so mixed - I was extremely happy with my stay for the price I… Read more
I had a wonderful stay at the Hilton sedona thanks to the clean and comfortable rooms, the attentive housekeeping, and the great staff - front desk employees, pool bartender and others. I highly recommend the red rock view if available. I am not sure why the reviews of this hotel are so mixed - I was extremely happy with my stay for the price I paid, but I may have gotten a better deal than others paid for their rooms. The location is suitable for accessing Sedona area attractions and trails and still manages to have a lot less traffic than uptown Sedona. I would definitely stay here again and really commend the staff for being so personable. Also, even though the pool temperature was cool my daughters very much enjoyed playing and swimming in the pool for hours one evening. One of the staff members with the fire pits while were there which was awesome. Lastly you can buy the red rock pass here and they will provide laundry detergent and fabric softener for you to do your laundry for free at the second-floor laundry room located near the center of the hotel.

We traveled to AZ for an elopement and chose this hotel for a four night stay. The outside patio was so inviting with lounge areas & fire pits. You can even order smores to grill. Live music outside most nights. The food was spectacular. The Spa was very relaxing before our special day. They say it never rains in AZ? It rained, actually… Read more

It rained, actually poured, but the front desk gave us an umbrella for the day. I would defiantly recommend the Hilton. Read less

We are avid travelers with Hilton honors diamond status. We take pandemic related precautions but have made a point of traveling every weekend and Hilton is the first name we search for in any destination. Over the food last year, we have stayed at Hilton Sedona several times and the service has gotten worse and worse every time. We understand everyone is dealing with staffing issues so we have been patient but our last visit really broke the camel’s back. We had booked a spa appointment at 2:00pm on the day of our checkout (Sunday October 3rd, 2021) and asked the front desk if we could get a slightly late checkout if there was availability. Usually noon checkout is offered readily, especially to diamond members but in this instance apparently there was no availability. Before moving on, I opened my Hilton app and it looked like there were dozens of rooms available, and I asked the front desk if this was really important to refuse an hours worth of extension to a diamond member. At this point a rude and obnoxious person claiming to a manager jumped into the conversation and started yelling at me. I asked him to stop interrupting me while I was in the middle of a conversation with someone and he accused me of being loud. It was at this point I backed away from the front desk, never to stay at this hilton again. Look I can lounge in the spa, I can go into the town, I have options to spend time before my massage at the spa (within the same resort). I simply asked why they refused to extend the checkout by an hour despite ample room and the front desk staff escalated it to a point I have never experienced in my life. I am blown away by the rudeness, dishonesty and lack of awareness exhibited by the staff. And as I mentioned, this was just the last straw, the service at the bar is subpar, the breakfast seating snd delays have been growing and the quality of food is again subpar at best. They are also not doing room service (why?) and the concierge is really a sales and commission driven front for the pink jeep tours. Just a sad situation overall. Read less
