We had a wonderful 4 days staying with Steve and Connie at El Portal. The atmosphere created by the physical layout of the Inn and the care and thought put into all of the little details from background music to subtle lighting in the evening gathering area made relaxing effortless. The room was rustic with charm of southwest decor from... More

El Portal is a unique luxury inn with huge rustic rooms with attention to details. Owners Steve and Connie take pride in making your visit memorable. We were able to stay in room 7 with our two daughters and our golden retriever to enjoy a weekend in Sedona with plenty of room to relax and unwind. Our room had a... More

My girlfriend and I spent an evening at El Portal at the early part of Sedona's busy season (Mid-March). We had some knowledge of what we would be in for before we arrived. We had no idea just how unique this charming place is until we pulled in! It's tucked into a quite, but easily accessible slice of Sedona. Near... More

We recently stayed at el portal for a couple of nights while we were in Sedona. My teens loved this place as did my husband and I. It was so laid back and relaxing, the rooms were enormous by any hotel standards and we have stayed and travelled around the world. The only way to find bigger rooms is to... More

This place is incredible. No corporate structure, pet friendly, they trust all of their guess with a honest system on drinks, incredible court yard and the architect of this place is amazing. You will not see anything like this at a corporate franchise hotel chain. The wood beams, the furniture, everything about this place is amazing. Steve & Connie are... More

For over a year I have been trying to write a review of El Portal, but I could never write something that I felt did it justice (and really, I tried).

We traveled to Sedona from Scottsdale having spent three nights at the Marriott Camelback, where we paid about $500 a night for a splendid standard room which included breakfast and was situated on a beautiful property. We are paying just over $500 for our room here at El Portal. This also does include breakfast. However - This is NOT a... More

We're sorry you didn't enjoy our hacienda. You booked through a third party rather than direct, we tried in earnest to get your money back but as they weren't willing to cooperate we did compensate you. We pride ourselves in NOT being a Marriott, El Portal is a boutique hotel with antique furnishings and many other unique features. We offer... More

We have high standards for our travel, and we love Sedona. So we were thrilled to find El Portal. El Portal is a beautiful, small, friendly, authentic home away from home. It is run by a lovely couple with a small staff. Imagine Yosemite's Ahwahnee Hotel scaled down to 10 lovely (and larger) rooms with larger bathrooms, and you've got... More

We loved El Portal! The room, the views, the early evening fire pit and hors d'oeuvres! It was all fantastic. Steve went above and beyond with helpful tips on hiking and dining - even a quick auto fix when our innocent car had a nasty encounter with an aggressive boulder (need to watch out for those in Sedona!).

We stayed here for two nights to finish a trip through the southwest. I'd eaten breakfast here on a previous trip and had asked to look at a room and promised myself on the next trip is stay here. Our room, the juniper was furnished in distinct authentic southwestern items and had a gas fireplace which was lovely. This room... More
