RD Olson Development recently submitted plans to the City of Sedona for the design and construction of a new boutique hotel at 150 Schnebly Hill Road.
The 11.58 acre-property is bounded by Schnebly Hill Road, Oak Creek, and Bear Wallow Lane. The developer applied for preliminary conceptual review for the project, known as Oak Creek Resort. The application is currently undergoing staff review.
Oak Creek Resort is proposed as a 92-key boutique style hotel and spa, “where guest and locals can refresh, revive, and reconnect,” according to the project documents. “The resort will be offering creek and rock formation view guestrooms with a signature restaurant, destination Spa, and small meeting facilities.” The hotel is not yet branded.
The resort will include a cluster of different sized buildings to break down the massing. Near the southern portion of the site and adjacent to the creek, the developer will house three-story buildings, then transition to two-story and single-story buildings near the road and northern portion of the property.
The guestrooms will be housed in three-story and single-story buildings while the 4.5KSF restaurant will be in a two-story building.
