Best place to stay in Sedona

We stayed here for our weeding week and it was so romantic. Very charming and cozy place to stay. Also very dog friendly and excellent breakfast. We are defiantly coming back here next year to celebrate our anniversary.

A wonderful anniversary stay at El Portal. Very friendly and helpful staff and cozy surroundings. We loved the fire pit. Very convenient within walking distance to many restaurants. Will be back.

El Portal is the gem of Sedona

We stayed at El Portal for a special occasion. It was a great experience. The staff was very friendly. The room and property in general was awesome. The location is close to many popular Sedona attractions. The on site dining was great for breakfast. The snacks and wine in the evening around the fire was a great treat. Great experience! I highly recommend a stay here!!!

Charming Hideaway

First time to Sedona to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. With two kids and one dog in tow, we needed to find a place that could accommodate all needs. Well, El Portal did just that and then some. We are well traveled people and have stayed in many 5 star hotels. None of those compare to the atmosphere, the care, and "vibe" of El Portal. While it has all the amenities, it feels like you are visiting family. It is very centrally located and easy walking to many dog friendly establishments. The rooms are well appointed and interesting without that cookie cutter feel. Coffee, tea, wine, hot water are always available. Cookies and snacks are a regular occurrence and breakfast is yummy! The interior courtyard complete with lots of seating and fire pit is gorgeous just begging you to come sit down and visit with your neighbors. Ann, who manages the front desk, is absolutely darling and felt like an old friend by the time we left. For the dog lovers out there - this is THE place. Your pup gets their own welcome basket with goodies and is very warmly received. One day we were sitting in the courtyard and Ann came and brought a little rug for our pup to lay down on. Okay, how many people actually would do that? Just a little idea of how considerate folks are at El Portal. I could go on and on but will say this - we will not go anywhere else from now on - with or without the kids or dog. This is the place TO STAY.

southwestern charm!

Wonderful atmosphere, especially for those chilly nights and warm, mesquite fires outside!

This darling inn provides an intimate setting in Sedona. Although close to shops and restaurants, it is secluded.

Beautiful place to escape too

4.6 on September 08, 2015

We decided to getaway for the weekend with our pups and in my research for place that accept dogs (we have a mastiff and a boxer/mastiff mix), I found El Portal. The hotel exceeded my expectations. Upon arrival the staff was super friendly and we fell in love with the courtyard. Our room was amazing, the beds were really comfortable, we have never slept that well in a hotel before. The dogs received a little basket full of treats and blankets. They had a nice area for the dogs to do their business and you would never know that dogs were ever there from the cleanliness of the rooms to the grounds of the hotel. Also we were in the Juniper room #8, on the corner near the entrance and it was quiet, which we were a little worried about at first but we never heard a sound. There are so many great things I could say about this place and we will definitely be coming back. Highly recommended for a romantic getaway or a great place to stay with your pets!

Innkeeper Response
