On a recent business trip to the Sedona region of Arizona, my wife and I decided to extend our stay in the region and El Portal caught our eye. It is a small "boutique" inn of only 12 rooms, just the size we enjoy. We made the right choice. The rooms were all different, ours had a patio, fireplace and room to relax and a bathroom that was functional with natural light. The inn is non-smoking, has complimentary wireless internet, phone, refrigerators, cable TV, VCR & DVD (with a great library of DVD's)and the usual ammenities. But what separates El Portal from other inns is the staff. Our hosts, Steve, Connie and Lynda were most helpful and the rest of the staff from David (in house guide) to Eden (chef), all treated us as long lost friends. Their friendliness was genuine and not forced. I will go out of my way to return to El Portal whenever I am in AZ, CO or NM. Along with the Inn at Perry Cabin, The Inn at Langley and the Pitcher Inn, El Portal has made it to our Best of US inn list. In addition, Sedona is one of, if not the best area of Arizona.
