Sedona has been on my bucket list for several years. Decided this was the year for a visit to celebrate my 60th birthday. So glad I picked this hotel - location was superb as well as the setting and the room. Staff was friendly and welcoming. Thanks for making my 60th so memorable.

Just returned from a few nights at this absolutely exquisite …. hotel? inn? luxury guesthouse? … not sure what to call it because it is so unique. The owner/operators clearly put great deal of thought and creativity into every little detail of the place — from the cozy robes in the closet to the furnishing and decor in all the... More

They are very pet friendly there.We stayed in room # 3 and it was very spacious and had a enclosed back yard for our dog.

As a local, this historically-accurate adobe hacienda's property is considered to be the very best escape to a serene and home-like experience. The outdoor courtyard is, simply, beautiful and calming; a great place to experience a lovely break. El Portal offers an everyday breakfast for all to enjoy; the public is welcome, including dogs!

This place a mom and pop hospitality with charm and style. The rooms are lovely, with many of them offering small patios for dog visitors. Our first morning, we had breakfast in the hotel dining room and got to meet a number of sweet natured dogs. The courtyard is small and inviting, with a fire pit and pond to relax... More

I travel all the time and this was one of my best stays! We were welcomed like family. We were greeted by Ann, who went out of her way to make us feel welcome to include our 2-year old daughter. The room was very large and comfortable. The fireplace was a nice romantic touch. The common area was very cozy... More

My husband and I have been coming to Sedona for over 25 years, one of the most magical and spiritual places on the planet....we have stayed at El Portal every year for the last 10 + years, since we got our Alaskan Malamutes. Each trip we find we don't want to leave, so we keep increasing how long we stay!... More

This is, hands down, the best hotel we have stayed at! The rooms are beautiful and offer amazing privacy. Loved the fact that it is dog friendly, as well as the private patio for our dog to use, just outside the room. The amenities were great too! Our room had a big, deep bathtub, as well as a spacious walk-in... More

Having stayed at El Portal repeatedly (10+ times) since June 2007, I have a wealth of experience with the resort and the surrounding area. If your tastes run towards corporate cookie cutter resorts, El Portal may not be your choice, but if you want to experience traditional Arizona hospitality in Sedona, El Portal is definitely is worthy of serious consideration....

This hotel has a certain whimsy about it, but having room service without menus in the rooms, being pet friendly, with courtyards that are akin to fenced off property edges, dated and frayed room fixtures( read shabbier than chic) all contribute to this impression. All this at boutique hotel, read " high" and the impression is more negative than positive.... More
