My wife and I had plans to travel to the Bay area this weekend and had the plans suddenly changed due to the "Pineapple Express" storm that hit Norcal. We needed a Plan B in a hurry. We didn't want to stay at another cookie cutter hotel and sought out a something that was unique and had the charm that... More

My wife and I went to Sedona for the weekend, and based on a local friends suggestion selected the El Portal. We will most definitely be visiting both Sedona and the El Portal again. Its a small hotel that feels like home. Each room is a bit different and all are tastefully done in southwest style. Our room had a... More

We just returned to Phoenix from a weekend at El Portal, and it was so wonderful that I immediately wanted to add a glowing review for the property. We took my two small, old dogs and had SUCH a great time. The weather was a little hit or miss this weekend with some cloudy cold weather, but we just hung... More

El Portal is wonderful. Everyone is helpful and will help you find many things to do around the area. It is relaxing and the food is wonderful. Some of the decor is a little tired. However, the overall atmosphere is great. There are no view rooms but it is pet friendly. Close to shopping and central area.

We had a lovely stay in the governor suite. Loved the vintage furniture, jet tube and steamer in shower was awesome! On our wedding night however, we had a rude guest come knocking at our door asking us to keep the noise and walking about down cause his family w/kids were trying to sleep...it was a Saturday night & not...

I have heard about El Portal for years and finally had the opportunity to stay for one night. I am sorry to say that it was a little disappointing. The Adobe room was rather "tired" looking in terms of decor and at the price paid, I expected a much higher quality of mattress, sheets and towels. Additionally, the extra $15... More

We're sorry you did not like the adobe look. It is our easy access room for those with wheelchairs, etc. All furnishings of El Portal Sedona Hotel are authentic to the period between 1900 and 1930. More

We were part of a group of four couples staying here, and this place was fantastic. With its Hacienda style central patio surrounded by the Lobby & Dining areas on one side and rooms all around, it was a perfect retreat in the morning to plan our excursions or at the end of the day to enjoy some wine and...

I really enjoyed my stay at the El Portal. The rooms are very tastefully decorated, all individual in a good way, very comfortable, clean, well-maintained. It was a pleasure to stay there -- extremely quiet and relaxing. The one comment I might make is that the cancellation policy is a little on the draconian side. I understand that smaller boutique...

El Portal is tucked away right in the heart if Sedona. It is within walking distance to town. We walked to the airport loop trail from here also. Steve and Connie were very accommodating and couldn't have been nicer! Guest would gather for a bonfire at night with drinks. If you have a dog this is the place for you.... More

We stayed here for 3 nights on our first trip to Sedona. The rooms are decorated uniquely and are very warm and inviting. This place has the feel of a B&B and makes you feel right at home. The bathtubs are amazing and I also love the fireplaces in the rooms. Make sure to eat breakfast there at least once,... More
