Bell rock, courthouse rock and cathedral rock were on our plan for the day.This was our one full day in Sedona so we hoped to cram lots in! The weather was perfect. Very cold at night, cloudless sky and warmer during the day and perfect for walking. This is stunning red rock country, with amazing rock formations. We started in the morning walking round bell rock, and courthouse rock....hard to describe - ...

We crossed the Continental Divide at an elevation of over 7,000 feet. We passed through many Indian reservations and were saddened to see how some people live, the properties were dumps, full of rusty cars and piles of junk. There is obviously a good market in second-hand trailers in this area.
We drove alongside a freight train which was over a mile in length. It had about 200 carriages ...

Historical Traveler Reviews L'Auberge De Sedona
First let me say that I'm a man of few words, so bare with me. Upon arrival we were met by one of the staff and welcomed to the resort . Check-in was a breeze and the creek side cabin that was assigned to us was more than we had hoped for, it was well appointed and very comfortable in a home away from home kind of way. Diner in the restaurant was truely delightful, the service and meal presentation were a work of art and the meal itself was over the top. This resort is exactly what you need if you are looking for a get away to let your brain relax and enjoy the better side of life. I could go on and on but I think this resort is a place that should experienced in person,,, especially with the one you love.
Best Hotel in Sedona
I stayed at L'Auberge last August with my wife. We often travel to Sedona and have stayed almost everywhere else. We have not stayed at L'Auberge before, so we thought we would give it a try.
From the moment we arrived until we left we were made to feel welcome by the staff. I have never stayed at a hotel where every employee that I came into contact with greeted me with a smile and a hello. We loved the little touches and attention to detail. We ate one night in the restaurant and had one of the best meal in my life. The wine celler is unmatched in its range or depth of choices. Each plate presentation was art.
I recommend the room service breakfast in your cottage. It is special. Overall I recommend the hotel as the best in Sedona. It is a jewel. Enjoy.
The L'Auberge was one disappointment after another. The air conditioning didn't work correctly, two of the four mornings we were there we were awakened before 6 a.m. by the beeping and banging of the garbage truck, the housekeeping was minimal, newspapers were delivered unreliably, and the staff were variable. We had just wanted to get some rest and relaxation, but the L'Aberge was anything but. Given the price, it was truly a disappointment.
First of all, let me start by saying we are two seasoned hotel managers who have been in the resort business for over a decade. We are two picky travelers! After reading the past reviews about poor management or lack luster food, I wanted to add our review. It seems whoever took over this little gem is doing a fantastic job! From the moment we stepped into the lodge to check in we were impressed. First Dora, the lovely front desk agent, promptly went through the check in process. The cabin we reserved was not ready. She recommended several of her favorite spots for lunch and then offered to ring our cell phone when the room was ready. After lunch in town, we settled into our cabin which was right on the creek. The funishing looked quite new, and the little details of the room were fantastic. The ONLY complaint I had on the room was the water pressure in the rain head shower wasnt great. Dinner at L'Auberge was amazing. No it was AMAZING! Presentation was wonderful, food was flavorful and the wine perfect. The next morning, room service delievered an overflowing basket food (once again, great presentation....insted of the tired room service tray our server delieverd our entire breakfast in a huge basket) At check out we must have said good by to every staff member walking around the lodge.,...and even received a great tip of a side trip for the ride home. If the previous posters were correct in saying the hotel changed ownership, it was a good thing. They have thier act together and will impress even the particul travelers!
The L'Auberge de Sedona resort is a great place to stay. When we arrived, we were immediately greeted and helped with our bags. Check in was very fast and easy. The front desk employees were very knowledgeable about activities in the area and were willing to help us out with bookings and directions. We received a garden cottage, and it was worth every penny. The rooms were in a great location and were nicely furnished. The room also had a wood burning fireplace. Every day the housekeeping staff would then replace our wood and clean up the area. The down pillows and blankets were great for this cozy environment. The restaurant was great. Their wine selection exceeded my expectations. Their food was prompt and delicious. The hotel went out of their way to make us reservations for jeep tours and other activities in Sedona. I will definitely return to this hotel!
We arrived @ hotel Saturday 06MAY06... Not easy to find the resort if you are
We were extremely disappointed with our decision to stay at the "famous" L'Auber
We chose this site for four of us to celebrate my big 6-0. The rooms are EXTREMELY out of date and lacking amenities. We stayed in the Creekside Lodge, and despite complaining several times of how hot it got at night, nothing was done to fix the AC during our stay - 3 uncomfortably hot nights.
The restaurant was nice, but certainly not worth the cost. Savannah's, Rene's, --several better restaurants for equal or less cost. We heard L'Auberge has been bought by Tarsadia, but Tarsadia will need to sink quite a bit of money into areas that overnight guests will see (not a spa or lobby upgrade) to get us to consider ever returning.
We were extremely disappointed: For the money, there are MUCH better experiences in Sedona than L'Auberge, I am so sorry to say.
We love L"Auberge
We stayed at Lauberge in March for a weekend and found the lodge evening reception to be a great and unexpected welcome to Sedona. The manager greeted us and arranged for a wine tasting and star gazing. This was amazing!
We stayed in the lodge for $279 which was quite a value in this spectacular setting. We really enjoyed the concierge who was very charming and knowledgable about the area. The attentive staff made this a memorable and relaxing weekend.
I would recommend L'Auberge as a unique and relaxing place to stay while in Seonda.
Where to begin? We've just returned from two nights at L'Auberge. Based on a review in Fodor's, L'Auberge's own website, and the price, we felt confident we had chosen a cozy, tasteful, country-style retreat, replete with a top-rated restaurant, nestled in the red rocks of Sedona.
