    What restaurants does Sedona Rouge Hotel & Spa have?

    Reds Restaurant at Sedona Rouge Hotel & Spa offers modern American cuisine with a contemporary twist in four different dining spaces. Large communal high-tops in the Upper Lounge attract those who like to socialize for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Regular menu options or small plates make this the busiest area of the restaurant at night. Live music draws a local clientele seven nights per week from 6 to 9 p.m. The bar area stays open a bit longer — until 9:30 or 10 p.m. — and attracts wine enthusiasts with a long bar menu that includes specialty cocktails, local beer and local wine. You may also dine outdoors on Reds’ small patio.

    Chef Ron Moler is often seen interacting with guests in the main dining area. Reds’ open kitchen makes the chef visible and the Arizona native enjoys creating special orders including healthy, wellness cuisine. Chef Ron, interestingly enough, is one of the only chefs approved by the United States Secret Service to cook at Senator John McCain’s nearby ranch.

    Room service at Sedona Rouge Hotel & Spa is available in guest rooms and in the tranquility lounge at the Spa at Sedona Rouge.

    What’s the best time to visit Sedona Rouge Hotel & Spa?

    The best time to visit Sedona Rouge Hotel & Spa is during the spring (April and May) or fall (mid-September to early November) when average temperatures range from a perfect 74 to 84 degrees Fahrenheit. In the spring, the aromas of the chef’s herb gardens fill the air as you head for your spa treatments. In autumn, the Sedona area is one of Arizonans’ favorite places for fall color drives. In either season, Sedona is alive with art gallery goers, hikers, jeep tours through unusual rock formations and international travelers curious about mystic healing energies of the red rocks. Winters can be mild and are often a good time to visit, though we suggest you check weather forecasts before booking a trip from mid-November through March.
