This is a bit off-topic, but in case any of you are traveling to Sedona, Arizona any time soon, I wanted to recommend to you a wonderful place to stay. My friends Ken and Heather own a gorgeous, newly built home in Sedona. Their home, called Sedona Suite, features two private entrance suites. Each features a king-size bed, deluxe bathroom, private balcony, and kitchenette.
These accommodations are so much nicer and more private than you'll ever find in an ordinary hotel. The beds are plush, the towels are thick and soft, the colors are restful, the toiletry products are cruelty-free, and the kitchen comes stocked with free water, soda, teas, granola bars, etc. There's also satellite TV and wireless Internet. And the views are simply amazing!
Best of all, Heather and Ken are two of the most hospitable and interesting people you'll ever meet. Ken is a well-respected consultant and the author of The Consistent Consumer: Predicting Future Behavior through Lasting Values. Heather is the founder of Models with Conscience, and the author of Beauty without the Beasts: a Guide to Cruelty-Free Personal Care. Their goal, and one in which I think they've succeeded, is to provide a peaceful and memorable atmosphere in their home. I've visited several times, and look forward to visiting again soon.
If you're not yet convinced, just peruse a few of the visitor comments on the Sedona Suite website. I promise you, if you're looking for a place to stay in Sedona, you won't be disappointed by Sedona Suite.
