Our stay in the Grand Canyon room was a fantastic first impression of Sedona. We especially looked forward to the evening wood fires in the patio. El Portal is for travelers that are looking for a relaxing, cozy, personalized feel. All you would want in a boutique hotel / inn down to the details. The amenities for the pool and... More

Unique hotel; each room is different. We had a wonderful patio overlooking the courtyard. Our room was huge and absolutely gorgeous! Friendly staff. Beautiful property and rooms! The location is perfect as well. Right adjacent to the artists' village with many great restaurants and shopping.

We could NOT have chosen a better place to stay for our honeymoon in Sedona. The governor's suite was the most expensive room they have but worth the splurge for our special occasion. Each suite is unique, filled with antiques and rustic touches. Don't be fooled by the word rustic though, rustic in an elegant way. The bathtub was huge!... More

My wife and I recently stayed at the El Portal for a three day weekend. We like to travel with our dog when we can. Although many hotels tolerate dogs, the El Portal actually welcomes them. We stayed Molesworth, a large comfortable room. When we arrived there was a great dog basket, with a throw rug and sheet for the... More

This hotel bills itself as a Luxury Hotel which unfortunately is not the case. Luxury to me is a Four Seasons or a Ritz-Carlton and this hotel is far from them! However if you are looking for a hotel that is pet friendly, close to restaurants and shopping in Sedona this hotel is ok but if you looking for a... More

We are very sorry you feel this way. Our soaps and shampoos come from Gilchrist & Soames of London, England. We don;t have room service or bell service as we are small, however, many restaurants will deliver. Thank you for your input. More

The unique style of the individualized rooms is what drew me to book our 3N stay. We had the Molesworth room and it was filled with charm as was the entire property. The entire place is beautifully decorated and has great energy. It exudes warmth and welcome as visitors walk through. El Portal is located at a very convenient spot... More

This is not just as award winning pet friendly hotel...this hotel has all the charm and class of an Italian Villa. The welcome and warmth from the owner to Ann at the desk was exceptional. The classy rooms are open plan with a big tub and a garden area for furry friends. Only twelve rooms in this inn and rooms... More

This 12 room inn is a work of art. You feel like you are staying in a small lodge built in 1910. Decorated in the Arts and Crafts style, with a hint of Adobe thrown in. Attention to detail is everywhere. Inside the main lobby has beautiful beams, large windows and stone fireplace, surrounded by comfortable Stickley furniture. The courtyard... More

We loved our first stay at El Portal with our dog! As regular Sedona visitors, we try to avoid the regular touristy spots, but still like to go to the popular areas and restaurants as well.
