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.

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

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! While we were too late to... More

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
