El Portal is a treasure and a truly pet friendly. The rooms are so unique, spacious & comfortable. They go above & beyond for service and the breakfast menu was delicious. Try the French toast! We dined at Rene's in the artist village next door- amazing fine dining and welcoming to us & our 4 dogs! Ask for Tony.


Great time in Sedona

My wife and I had never been to Sedona. El Portal offered the perfect site to start our new adventure. Great location! Just the right size environment for an inn. Friendly staff. Very comfortable rooms with wonderful showers. The fact that it was dog friendly made it possible for us to enjoy our vacation with our closest friends and their dogs.


Looking forward to retuning

The El Portal is a Perfect balance of rustic elegance. We were swept away by the comfort, peace and quiet. Every nook was a feast for the eyes filled with gorgeous stone work, antiques and local art. We can't wait to go back! Jeff & Stacy

Such a relaxing place to stay!!!

This was our second stay at the El Portal. We enjoyed ourselves so much the first time that when we knew we were going to be in Sedona again for a couple days, there was no doubt where we wanted to stay. Steve and Connie have created such a unique and beautiful hotel with such attention to detail in both design and atmosphere that make this one of our favorite places to stay. Once again, Steve and Connie, it was a pleasure.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for staying with us AGAIN! And it was our pleasure...Thank you!
