It’s not quite back to the drawing board for a proposed hotel in Sedona but it’s close.
The project, located at the intersection of State Route 89A and Soldier Pass Road on property formerly owned by the Biddle family, appeared to be full steam ahead in the fall of 2017. Then things cooled off, heated up and then cooled off again. But Stephen Thompson, the architect on the project, said it’s still moving forward.
“Unlike what I’ve heard from some, the project has not been cancelled or put on hold,” he said. “We’ve been in the trenches going over the project to make sure it meets the Sedona Community Plan and what’s outlined in the [Soldier Pass] Community Focus Area.”
While the Biddles had the largest piece of the pie, in all, eight parcels were purchased for this development, which is being called Village at Saddlerock. The owners are Curt and Robin Baney, who have 22 other properties in their Oregon-based Oxford Suites hotel chain.
