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.

A beautiful Hilton property just outside of Sedona. I really enjoyed the entire property, from the bar and lounge area to the pools (there are two) and the rooms themselves.

A beautiful Hilton property just outside of Sedona. I really enjoyed the entire property, from the bar and lounge area to the pools (there are two) and the rooms themselves. The main bar/restaurant is very well done. They have a great TV setup with huge screens where you can watch sports in comfy chairs. They also have a huge scrabble wall which is oddly fun to play. I wouldn't normally play scrabble at home, but for some reason I felt compelled to play because it was on the wall. All in all I had a great experience at this Hilton. There were only two issues I want to point out to future travelers: 1 - Rooms With Views: Nearly all room tips say "get a room with a view of the red rocks" but very few mention what rooms have those views. This is not an easy thing to determine, btw. Even the room tips that provide a room number tend to be conflicting. Unfortunately, this property won't be of much help in that regard. I booked my two rooms nearly a year in advance, and I booked the second highest room rate but still could not get any sort of guarantee about the room view. The sad truth is if you *really* want a view then you need to book the only room that specifically says it has one, which is also the highest room rate. In my case, room 3023 had a pretty nice view. I wouldn't have expected this since it also faces the parking lot, but the view was good. 2 - Gold/Diamond Breakfast Procedure: On average I stay 65 nights each year at a Hilton property. There tends to be some variation as to how each property handles breakfast for gold and diamond members, but this property was totally different. On top of that, nobody at the hotel seemed to have any clue what the process was. I got 4 different answers from hotel staff, and none were very helpful. What you need to know is that they will present you will a bill for the full amount of your breakfast. You will sign for it and tip. Then, at the end of your stay when you are checking out they apply a credit of ($22/pp I think) to each days breakfast total. While this is all fine and well it is very unique by comparison to other Hilton's. It also makes the accounting aspect much harder as you really need to go line by line on your statement to make sure the credits were applied correctly. In my case I had one day that the server inputted incorrectly and I was billed for my full breakfast. Fortunately I caught that mistake. Read less

Not as shown on booking sites. No tub, the bottle openers are of poor quality. The internet is not good. As a member we didn’t receive any perks or the benefits of any kind. Luckily Sedona is so beautiful.

Highly recommend this hotel if you are visiting the Sedona area fir a short vacation or or get away- clean, staff is very friendly and always willing to help - genuinely interested in you having a good time while you are their guests - lots of fun activities to do nearly all the time - bbq lessons for example and beer / whiskey tasting- s’mores by the fire pit at night with live music - breakfast is very good - order the omelets - they are excellent and the wait staff is fun and helpful - ask for New York Patty or Jackie from Hawaii! Great location to downtown Sedona - 10 minutes drive - but short distance to great hiking like cathedral rock Good time- Tom Read less

This has great potential but needs sprucing up. During our anniversary getaway, this place was overrun with people from a conference that had kids running everywhere. We couldn't even get in the hot tub without kids hopping in and out. Frustrating!

We stayed 2 nights while hiking near Sedona. Pool and hot tub very nice and extra lap pool within the SPA area. Poolside bar. Indoor bar lounge. Rooms very large and clean with premium bedding. Everything was very clean. Breakfast options near by. Approx 20 min outside of the main Sedona area but very close to trails and not as congested as Sedona… Read more
