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.

First for the positives. The location of this hotel is great for hiking Bell Rock and connected trails as it is just a short drive to the trailhead. The hotel concierge will provide you with an excellent Map with directions to some of the areas most popular hikes.

First for the positives. The location of this hotel is great for hiking Bell Rock and connected trails as it is just a short drive to the trailhead. The hotel concierge will provide you with an excellent Map with directions to some of the areas most popular hikes. The hotel common areas and rooms were clean...but at $525/night you should be able to eat off the floors. The front desk staff were friendly but uninterested when i asked them why I was paying an extra $50 for a “red rock view” when all you could see is a tree and the parking lot...which brings me to the negatives... First, The internet connection was super slow..so much so, that if you are planning to do any work you will likely need to purchase the upgraded internet. I would not have cared about this except that cell phone reception was also very poor...As a Hilton honors diamond member I have never had to pay extra at any other Hilton property for functional internet. This seems like a petty thing to do at a Hilton property. I mean, they are already charging a resort fee..so why not provide free internet to all guests?? Second, the hotel is not ethical with their charges..This should never occur at a Hilton property..if I pay for a red rock or bell rock view..then I expect to be placed in a room that has that view...if you don’t have that type of room available...I’m ok with that too..Just don’t charge me the higher rate for something you did not provide..this does not seem unreasonable. Third, while the rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable, the air conditioning was poor and the room was stuffy..this could have just been my particular room without a view that was stuffy. Overall this was just a uniquely poor experience at a Hilton property that certainly has potential. My advice if you go to Sedona, don’t book this hotel based on the pictures or descriptions on their website. Also, go with the cheapest room as the chances are you will be paying for a view that doesn’t exist. If i had it to do over again I would have stayed in Flagstaff at 1/4 the cost and driven the 35-45 minutes into sedona...The oak creek canyon drive is amazing and unlike my room you are guaranteed to have a spectacular view!!

Let me start by saying I did reach out to the hotel front desk and have not received a response. Also, when I tried to fill out the guest survey email I received from the hotel it said that it was expired. To start the carpet in the room was filthy. I am not sure where the $75 pet fee is applied but it is definetly not in cleaning the room which… Read more
Let me start by saying I did reach out to the hotel front desk and have not received a response. Also, when I tried to fill out the guest survey email I received from the hotel it said that it was expired. To start the carpet in the room was filthy. I am not sure where the $75 pet fee is applied but it is definetly not in cleaning the room which smelled of wet dog. More importantly we both got severe food posiening from the room service chicken which lasted for about 48 hours. Lastly I understand being spring break brings a higher average room rate, however $583.30 per night for a outdated dirty room over the noisy porte-cochere is insulting. Hilton, you need to do better. My guess is that this is a franchised property as an honors member I cannot recall anything this bad. Read less

We stayed for 3 nights at the Hilton Sedona. We were weighing out the pros and cons of staying on the north or south side of Sedona, but I am glad we chose the Hilton. We booked a 1 bedroom suite, and were in a corner suite, which had plenty of room for 4 of us. Kids were on the pullout couch, and my wife and I had a separate bedroom. … Read more
We stayed for 3 nights at the Hilton Sedona. We were weighing out the pros and cons of staying on the north or south side of Sedona, but I am glad we chose the Hilton. We booked a 1 bedroom suite, and were in a corner suite, which had plenty of room for 4 of us. Kids were on the pullout couch, and my wife and I had a separate bedroom. The south end of Sedona is considerably less crowded, but still conveniently located and a 10 minute drive to the Pink Jeep tour company. The hotel had a good breakfast, including a sit down breakfast or grab and go from Starbucks. The back patio has fire pits, which were nice in the morning for coffee, or evenings for drinks. We walked to a good Italian restaurant one evening for dinner, and ate at the hotel another time. Certain aspects of the hotel are dated (such as 42" TV's in the rooms), but overall, nothing that was an issue. We are happy we chose this property and would definitely return here. Read less

We checked in yesterday 4/7 and we are extremely disappointed in this hotel. It was very expensive, but we chose it for 2 reasons 1) because we are Hilton Honors and have always had good experiences 2) the views of Bell Rock. We were given a 1st floor room one door away from an exit to the parking lot. We don’t have a view of anything except the parking lot. I knew this was going to be a noisy spot, so my husband asked if we could switch rooms and we were told they are fully booked. As I expected I was wide awake very early this morning due to the doors slamming repeatedly as people exit. I bet 20 people have gone through since 6am. I would have a hard time recommending this location when there are so many other options in Sedona. If we could switch hotels I would, but it is Spring Break. Read less
