between flagstaff and sedona, hence the reason for flagstaff. Also the hotel selection as you mention is another good reason.

I love that feeling when I am debating between 2 places and come up with a good decision on one of them!

Well... I was thinking of staying in Sedona, for the reason to get the drive out of the way in the evening, as for me Sunday, I will be by the GC, and Monday late afternoon I want to be in Phoenix, Mon Morning I would spend a little time in Sedona ect...

So I guess staying in Sedona makes sense even though there isnt as good as a hotel selection

Drive from GC to Flagstaff and enjoy going to sleep 45 minutes earlier than you would if you would drive so Sedona. Wake up and spend those 45 minutes driving to Sedona :)

Normally I'm a big fan of driving at night. But in this case, IIRC, it's a really nice drive from Flagstaff to Sedona. It might be worth doing it in the morning when you can appreciate it.

Any ideas for my next vacation? I absolutely loved Arizona, and I'm looking for a place that is similar to Arizona for right before Pesach time.

Flagstaff Looks like it could be in Upstate NY, Sedona is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been The Hilton Garden Inn in Flagstaff is pretty much a airport hotel but in Sedona most places will be more Resort style  (although I think on Groupon Getaways they have something now)

If I stay in FT the night, I only got a 45 minute drive in the morning until I get to Sedona.
Advantages:
1) Shorter drive Wed. night (don't forget I'm doing the big LAS-GC drive on Wed morning).
Besides, I'm really not delving into the hotel for this night because all we want is to get some rest and we'll be checking out in the morning.
