We really enjoyed our stay at El Portal. The Grand Canyon suite is really beautiful. We brought our dog and she was welcomed with open arms. This is a beautiful quiet spot to relax. In the evenings we enjoyed the outdoor fire pit as well as the fireplace in our room. Walking distance to many shops and restaurants. We were a bit disappointed in the breakfast ( we had heard really great things about it) The food was ok but the service was quite rude. Other than that it was wonderful and we plan to return. If you are a plant lover like me you will love this place in the spring!
Thank you for your kind review. We will look into the bed and the service. We look forward to your next visit.

This resort is the hidden gem of Sedona! It is run by the nicest couple who go out of their way to make sure you feel right at home. I love all the details and the warm feel this resort has the minute you walk through the iron gate. I will recommend this resort to many friends and family and I can't wait to go back to visit one day with my family.

We enjoyed our stay at El Portal, and loved that we got to stay in the Green and Green Room. We are fans of craftsman decor and it was interesting to observe the small details. Our bed was very comfortable and the room had a lovely view. We didn’t bring our dog but could have—she would have enjoyed it. Breakfast was delicious. The fires in the courtyard at dusk are wonderful.

I am 60 years old and this is the best resort, hotel, bed & breakfast, etc. I've stayed at during my lifetime. The rooms were clean, spacious, and very unique...each one with it's own character and the grounds were beautiful and inviting. And the service, well it was like you were at your grandmother's house who wanted to take care of your every need. I can't say enough about this place. You will just have to see for yourself but trust me, you will not be disappointed.
Thank you for your wonderful review, we so appreciate it! Thank you for choosing El Portal Sedona Hote, we are thrilled you enjoyed your stay. We hope to see you again!

As we entered El Portal the serenity of a warm welcome to our furry daughter Stella and the homey comforts of our retreat in room #6 was exactly as described from the website. You feel like your presence at El Portal is more like a family member visiting instead of a customer. Thank you for sharing your home away from home centrally located to all the local activities of Sedona!

El Portal was an amazing experience. We arrived for check in about a half hour after receiving a call that our dog had passed away at home. Ann greeted us like a family member and could not have been more comforting. The room was beautiful, comfortable, and very relaxing. Sitting in the courtyard in the evening was a lovely way to end the day. We will definitely return!
We were so sorry to hear of your loss. Thank you for staying with us - and for your lovely review!
