This is our 5th trip to this awesome inn. Why do we keep coming back? Because we are very particular about where we stay and El Portal fits the bill like no other. In fact, we couldn’t imagine staying anywhere else in Sedona because we’ve had the best. El Portal is quite conveniently located and so uniquely crafted and decorated, that you will not find anything like it − period. Each of the 12 rooms has its own character and style. The atmosphere of the inn is cozy and relaxed, due in part to the friendly and caring staff. Steve and Connie, the terrific owners, are most helpful. Steve is quite knowledgeable about Sedona and the surrounding areas. He is also knowledgeable about other related topics and you will quickly discern that Steve is a really smart guy. Terri, the concierge, is always friendly and helpful and goes the extra mile to get you whatever information you might need to explore. The housekeeping staff – Moré, Sylvia & Esperanza – is first rate and will keep your rooms tidy and provide you with delicious breakfasts. The huevos rancheros and lemon pancakes were our favorites. We truly looked forward to having breakfast in the magnificent great room. This room has a wonderful ambience that is warm and inviting. We have met some of the most remarkable and well-behaved dogs in this room. Around 4:00 p.m., you will find snacks consisting of Sylvia’s homemade salsa (rocking), chips, cheese, olives, fruit and quesadillas.
We stayed in Room 12, the Governor’s Suite, for 7 nights. This room is very large with beautiful antique furniture. There are redrock views from both the living room and bedroom. There is a fireplace that we enjoyed immensely each evening. The king bed is custom made and is so comfortable that you will sleep most soundly amidst luxurious linens.
There is a warming fire in the courtyard to invite you back on chilly evenings. Chairs and blankets are provided so that you can sit and enjoy the aromatic smell of the pinõn wood.
If you are looking for a relaxing, unique stay, and want the feel of being in someone’s home, rather than in a hotel, then you have come to the right place. There is a sense of spirit and wellbeing pervading here and like magic, El Portal will leave you feeling remarkably rejuvenated.
