The "Red Rock Country" of Sedona, Arizona is said to soothe the soul. Rocky outcroppings like Coffeepot, Cathedral and Thunder Mountain may inspire some soul searching, but we think a stay at the Sedona Rouge Hotel and Spa will really refresh your energy. Taking a cue from Andalusia (as the "Southwest United States was once part of a vast domain of little known Spanish Kings"), the 77-room hotel is elegantly designed in a Mediterranean style, a veritable "Moorish fantasy" with ancient Tunisian wrought-iron gates decorating the halls. You'll sleep like a baby in your plush bed, slumbering atop a Simmons Super plush Pillow Top mattress with a down comforter and lambs-wool throw blankets. In the destination spa, you'll relish customized treatments with organic products. Take off on a jeep adventure through the desert, or just relax in the heated swimming pool or on the hotel's Observation Terrace, designed for Red Rock viewing and star gazing. For a limited time, you can score up to 25 percent savings on your room rate. Book now and stay anytime through June 30th at the Sedona Rouge Hotel and Spa and you'll enjoy special Summertime pricing: 15 percent off any two-night stay, 20 percent off any three-night stay (Sunday through Thursday only), and 25 percent off your stay (Sunday through Thursday only) of four nights or more!
