The closest airport to Sedona is: Phoenix-Sky Harbor International Airport.
Sedona is a two-hour drive north of
Phoenix. From the airport, take
Interstate 17 [towards "Flagstaff"]. Use Exit # 298 [Sedona - Oak
Creek] and drive north about 16 miles on Hwy. 179 to reach Hwy 89A. The 7 Centers Yoga School where Barbara Marciniak's seminar
will be held is in West Sedona,
so turn LEFT (towards W. Sedona/Cottonwood) at the Roundabout
junction of State Routes 179 and West 89A and then turn LEFT
again at the Sunset Drive traffic signal. The 7 Centers address is 2115
Mountain Road (go to the end of Sunset Drive,
turn RIGHT on Shelby Road and then make the first LEFT into
Mountain Road - before
the Sedona Humane Society HQ. There are NO
recommended motels within walking distance of the 7 Centers Yoga
School and Barbara Marciniak's Sedona seminar. Most West Sedona Motels are
within 2 miles of the 7 Centers Yoga School.
Renting a car at the Phoenix Sky
Harbor airport is not difficult but prices vary so widely that it
is nearly impossible to predict just what it's going to cost
you. Phoenix has also added many local taxes and surcharges
to car rentals so be sure you get a 3-day quote that includes
these "hidden" charges as they can add up to 25% on to your bill.
I suggest you click on to either
or NATIONAL or ENTERPRISE
car rental agencies and check their prices. They
seem to be the best all-around "deals" for a 3-day weekend
rental for a mid-size car. Remember that Sedona is
100 miles from Phoenix so you want a decent-size car for Freeway
driving up Interstate 17.
If you don't want to drive, the
Sedona Shuttle has van service for round trips from
the Phoenix-Sky Harbor Airport. You MUST reserve in advance at (928) 282-2066. They normally
depart the Airport at 10 am, 12, 2,4, & 6 pm. It
takes 2 and a half hours. They will take you to any local
Sedona motel. ACE-XPRESS is
a door-to-door shuttle service from Cottonwood that will meet
your flight at PHX and drop you at your Sedona motel.
Advance Reservations requested: (928) 649-2720 or toll free:
1-800-336-2239. Web: http://www.acexshuttle.com
I do not recommend sleeping in Flagstaff as the road down to Sedona is long, twisty, and difficult or at the I-17 Camp Verde exit as it's a 30 - 45 minute ride. However, if you cannot find accommodations in town, try in Cottonwood (17 miles West of Sedona on Hwy 89A).

Sedona is a major tourist
destination and a resort town. Even though there are only
12,000 permanent residents in the vicinity, we average over TWO and 3/4 MILLION Tourists
Break in March starts our Peak Tourist Season.
Prices here are not inexpensive. Many hotels post higher
prices on Friday and Saturday nights. Some
will give a discount for Sunday. Some have Internet discounts. You must
phone or go online for exact 2017 rates - We do NOT updated
prices. All rates will have state and local taxes added. In general,
Central & Uptown Hotels are more expensive than in West
Sedona but there are exceptions. Some of the inexpensive motels are small
but clean and do not have Internet sites or toll free phone
numbers BUT you get the best rates in this expensive town.
West Sedona is on W. Hwy
89A and both major Grocery-store shopping centers (Basha's &
Safeway) are located there. It is up the hill going west
on Hwy 89A from the Round-A-Bout intersection with Hwy 179 (turn
left at the Round-a-Bout if coming into town on 179). In
general hotel/motels in West Sedona are a bit less expensive
than Uptown (turn right at the Round-A-Bout if going north on
179) but that's not always true. This list does NOT
include all Sedona hotel/motels or Bed and Breakfast places; typically
are more expensive in Sedona than motels).
