We've traveled all over the world and seldom enjoyed a hotel more. The owners have exhibited great care and planning in El Portal. How many times have you gone to a hotel and said, "I wish they.... ? You won't here for they've thought of everything. Furniture is hand crafted and made of beautiful burls and other expensive woods. The bathroom has a Jacuzzi tub, a large tile shower, separate WC and large vanity, all done in beautiful tiles, copper basins...etc.The architecture, Craftsman, furnishings and even the door handles are circa 1920. Julia Morgan could have been the inspiration. But all of that would fail if it were not for the dedication of Steve and Connie. They treat their guests as though this establishment were their home. It might as well be since they seem to be there day and night.
So, for those who come to Sedona to relax and let their cares go someplace else, this hotel is a great place. We've been to Sedona many times and have usually stayed at Enchantment which is a really gorgeous property with its world class spa. But they don't take dogs and this year we decided to take Rex, our German shepherd. He's very friendly and many of the other guests also had dogs. So it was a wonderful experience for our entire family. Rex seemed to understand that he was most welcome also..
When you sum up your experiences in various lodges/hotels/spas you always leave with a memory, a feeling. Rarely have I thought, as I left, "flawless." Such is the case with El Portal.
