Arroyo Pinion Hotel is just down the road from Thunder Mountain, a massive red-rock butte with lots of scenic hiking and rock-climbing routes. The hotel, which sits right in the heart of an area known as Red Rock Country, is also one of the closest to the entrance to Red Rock State Park. A 10-minute drive away, the park has one of the best views of the city and hosts guided nature walks every morning.
Shiny and new: the hotel underwent a complete renovation in 2013.
In-room comforts include pillow-top mattresses, down comforters, and organic bath products; premium rooms also have fireplaces and jetted tubs.
Book a spa day: Guests of Arroyo Pinion Hotel get a discount on services at Namaste Spa, right across the street.
Sedona, Arizona: Majestic Rock Formations and Quirky Arts Community
Surrounded by a band of red sandstone formations, Sedona boasts a breathtaking natural skyline. Head to the 3.2-mile Airport Loop hiking trail for views of famous outcroppings such as Cathedral Rock and Courthouse Butte. About 10 minutes outside of the city at Slide Rock State Park, you can barrel down a natural water slide and see a preserved turn-of-the-century homestead.
Since around the 1960s, artists have been drawn to Sedona's majestic landscape and cubist street signs. Although the arts scene has dwindled a bit in recent years, the city's creative spirit is still very much alive at Gallery Row, where more than 50 art shops and boutiques hawk pottery, jewelry, and metalwork.
