We loved our 5-night stay at this hotel! We have traveled around the world, and would place the El Portal experience in the top one percent. It is perfectly located -- easy to walk to restaurants and galleries. However, what we loved most was the quiet beauty of the rooms which are creatively designed with a craftsman's eye for detail...

This small hotel is fairly new to the Sedona area. The owner built it to resemble a Hacienda in the most authentic way possible. While fairly new - it has a well lived feel. Very romantic, stunning rooms, the courtyard is wonderful. Completely closes you off of the bustle of Sedona - even though it is right in town! You... More

I searched for B&B's or Inns for my first trip to Sedona, traveling with 3 friends. I was struck by the description of this Inn, and now can say the descriptions were completely accurate. This is simply a wonderful place to stay in Sedona. We rented 2 rooms (#9 and #11), and both were spacious, interesting and comfortable. The Inn,... More

The staff are amazing. Terri welcomed us like we were long lost relatives and made us feel instantly at home. She also had wonderful advice on restaurants, tours to take (or avoid) and showed us where everything was. Dog friendly hotel and the owners (Connie and Steve) dogs are terrific and love treats! There is a fire every night and... More

This was our first trip to Sedona and we are thrilled that we chose the El Portal for our home base. The staff and owners are absolutely first class, always happy to provide a suggestion for where to eat, where to go (and where to park once you get there!) and where to avoid. Our room (number 10) featured a... More

Beautiful, charming 12 room inn in Sedona. We stayed in Room #1 (Adobe) which was huge with a sitting area, fireplace, large bathroom and large patio. The Inn's great room and dining area is as comfortable as any I have ever stayed. El Portal may be a bit pricey but it was worth ever dollar. Steve, the owner was exceptionally... More

We planned our first trip to Sedona withe the idea of exploring the great outdoors. We did. However, after a day of hiking we couldn't wait to get back to El Portal. After a day of biking, we couldn't wait to get back to El Portal. Magical. That's the word I've finally come up with to describe El Portal. It's... More

I stayed at El Portal for four nights from 3/30-4/3 and found it to be everything I hoped it would be. The location is convenient to galleries, restaurants, shops and an easy drive from the major hiking attractions. But the real beauty of this place is in the hotel itself and the friendly service. Each room is uniquely and beautifully... More

El Portal is amazing. The staff is warm, friendly and attentive. The hotel is beautiful, it is obvious a lot of attention was paid to even the smallest detail. The breakfast is great and the firepit is a very nice touch. I stayed with my three daughters and we had a beautiful room, were extremely comfortable and were treated very... More

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.
