We stayed at the El Portal for our 25th Anniversary and cannot say enough great things about the property. It is situated in the heart of Sedona, yet quiet. Our room was to die for. Everyone in the office was helpful in planning activities and dining options.

Hotel's Favourite
My husband, the dogs, and I loved it here so much we stayed again the next weekend. It is such a relaxing atmosphere and beautiful rooms. Each room is unique some with their own outdoor dog run and fire pits. The courtyard is so tranquil and the hotel is so close to everything. I couldn’t recommend this location more for a trip to Sedona.

Should be #1 in Sedona. Close proximity to restaurants and shopping is nice but the hotel themed rooms is unique. The people who own and work they’re are the friendliest you could ask for. Complementary snacks clean rooms courtyard just really nice place.

We stayed two nights at El Portal in the Grand Canyon Suite. It was wonderful! The decor was unique and cozy. We loved the private courtyard. Upon arriving, we were warmly greeted and given a quick tour. As early morning hikers, we really appreciated the complimentary water, gatorades, yogurt, fruit, and granola bars. The main courtyard was like a secret garden - so peaceful and relaxing. We loved the location as well. Would highly recommend staying here when visiting the Sedona area!

My wife and I travel extensively. We’re always looking for that special small hotel. The one that has everything right. We found it when we arrived at El Portal. The hotel is a wonderful architectural creation. The furnishings are all vintage from the early 1900s. The rooms are spacious and all details covered. But what makes this hotel most special are the owners. Steve is an especially gracious host. We recommend El Portal without reservation.
