I love this hotel! The rooms are each unique with huge, comfortable beds and luxury, spa-like bathrooms. The hosts are incredibly nice and accommodating. This hotel feels more like a home. Location is fantastic. It is literally a one minute walk to Tlaquepaque shopping in the heart of Sedona. The hotel is the most pet friendly hotel that I have... More

Been a few years but remember how much we enjoyed our stay at this cozy small hotel. Rooms were decorated to reflect a western decor, it gave you a feeling of being in someone's home. We decided on several side trips offered through the hotel. I remember a sunset jeep drive, horseback riding and a trip to the grand canyon.

One must be certain to experience El Portal, especially if you are a lover of Early 20th century architecture and art. El Portal is quite small, which is a major part of its beauty. It is very Pet Friendly, as well. Each suite is unique and luxurious. Steve and Connie Segner and their staff are excellent hosts, too. The inner... More

My husband and I very much enjoyed spending our birthday weekend in beautiful Sedona at the El Portal Inn. This 12 room boutique inn was perfect for us. The pictures of the rooms online don't do them justice. We stayed in room 8, the Juniper. It was cozy and quiet with log furniture and a gas fireplace. The shared common... More

Although a bit pricey, this place is worth it. We actually caught a sale price, and sometimes they offer on Groupon. Most of the places in Sedona are a bit pricey, but NONE are like the El Portal.
