It's difficult to describe the experience of staying at El Portal. We enjoyed two nights with our dog in #8, The Juniper. It's so rare to be able to take our dog to such a gorgeous property and be allowed to select our room (rather than be stuck in an unrenovated "dog room" at the average "pet friendly" hotel )...

Okay, so Sedona isn't exactly a city, but this is absolutely an oasis away from everything. Tlaquepaque is right next door, which is great because you can walk to nice shops and restaurants, but you would never know you're that close because El Portal is tucked away into a quiet little alcove. The staff was incredibly accommodating and there if... More

There is no better place to relax in Sedona than the El Portal, particularly if you have dogs. This amazing dog oriented hotel greets you with a basket of goodies and warm things for your puppies when you walk in the door. Almost every room has its own little fenced in space for your puppies to use, and well behaved... More

This is my second stay in this hotel. My brother's family loves this hotel and when they take visiting family to Sedona, they stay here. Rightly so. Here's why - it allows dogs. We had two with us. It is limited rooms each individually done up with ensuite bathrooms which are spacious - ours had a tub as well as... More

The idyllic creation of pet industry veterans Connie and Steve Segner (founder of the world’s biggest pet retail show SuperZoo). This prime location luxury inn feels like a cross between a grand hideaway and a grown-up fairytale. Bodie and I experienced an instant sense of belonging here, blending with admiration for all the lovingly-crafted details from stained glass windows to... More

The rooms are all unique, and well furnished with such interesting fixtures and furniture. El Portal is a pet friendly, and quality place to escape to. You... More

We stayed there with our two adult kids over Xmas. The weather was unseasonably cold limiting our options but I can't think of a better place for us to stay. We chose this place after much deliberation, reading reviews very carefully, especially the negative ones. I couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised and truly feel that this is a unique...

We stayed for 4 nights. The rooms were clean. Our first room had issues with the heater so we had to rely on the fireplace. We tried to get guidance from the hotel staff several times and they didn't seem to know the area. When we went to checkout, no one knew what we needed to do, so we ended... More

El Portal's check out method is simply by placing guests' receipts under the door. The $15 fee is stated on our webpage. We apologize for any confusion regarding pet friendly dining, that is a state law; an option might be to do take out and eat in the great room. More

This is a boutique hotel in Sedona, with a wonderful view of the red rock hills that Sedona is famous for. The uniqueness of this hotel is that it is pet friendly.
