Go Big But Never Go Home
After dinner in Sedona I was back in the car to drive on to Phoenix. I wasn't in Sedona for longer than 3 hours and I really want to go back.
The drive to Phoenix was an easy one but I wish I'd done it during the day. The freeway clearly went over a major mountain that must be pretty scenic but that'll have to wait for another trip.
I checked into the Westin Hotel in Downtown Phoenix and was very pleased to be upgraded to a very large corner suite. I've stayed at this Westin twice and am very impressed with this hotel's modern design, comfort and very friendly staff.
The next morning I had breakfast in a restaurant that was featured in Diners, Drive-ins and Dives -- Matt's Big Breakfast, a great combination of a hip setting and a classic menu. Matt's is focused on fresh ingredients and creative combinations. And as you can guess from the name, the portions are not dainty.
It was hopping on a Friday morning in August so I bet it gets very crowded on the weekends. But well worth the effort to go there.
