It’s no secret that there is a housing shortage — or crisis, as some have called it — in Sedona. So whenever there is an opportunity to chip away at that problem, it appears that’s the goal of the Sedona City Council.
On Sept. 12, council had its second meeting with developer Paul Welker, who is seeking to build a Marriott Residence Inn. The meeting was discussion and direction only, so no action was taken.
The proposed hotel would be adjacent to the existing Courtyard by Marriott, which sits at the intersection of State Route 89A and Upper Red Rock Loop Road and is owned by Welker. It would sit on just over 3 acres with an additional 0.75 acres of open space, which would be used for drainage.
