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

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 was our first visit to Sedona. Absolutely gorgeous part of the world. We had 3 relaxing nights at El Portal. Great room and really liked the fireplace on a couple of chilly nights. Excellent low key service with friendly staff. Very tasty and hearty breakfasts. Convenient location for walking and day trips. Inner courtyard is a lovely place to... 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. El Portal was perfect, being centrally located, but once at the hotel feeling totally removed from the hustle and bustle! We stayed in room... More

Alas, we had only one night at this hotel, but we loved everything about it. The whole place is extremely quiet, with large and very clean well furnished rooms, a lovely courtyard with a terrific fire pit in the evenings/night, delicious and generous breakfast in a very pleasant room, extremely helpful staff - perfect blend of friendly and professional.

We loved our three nights at this lovely inn organized around a central courtyard where an outdoor fire was made for the guests every night. In fact the courtyard is so pretty we ended up having takeout dinner there one night as we couldn't bring ourselves to leave the beautiful peace and quiet. Our room had a fireplace, great big...
