We have stayed at a few boutique hotels before, and this one was by far the the best. The staff, the location, the perks, the rooms. Room was amazing. Ambiance here was beyond perfect.

Absolutely perfect for our anniversary trip with friends!
An extremely pleasant experience. The rooms are extraordinary with beautiful appointments and well designed features and comforts. We woke early and had our coffee and complimentary breakfast items in the courtyard, and the courtyard also serves as a quiet, peaceful space to read and/or work, and also a most enjoyable spot for pre and post dinner cocktails. El Portal has a wonderful, convenient selection beverages, as well as being located adjacent to restaurants and shopping while maintaining privacy and the feeling of seclusion. I am recently retired, and this was undoubtedly the best and most totally comfortable hotel experience of my life.

Old-world elegance and Southwestern flair!
Beautiful, quiet rooms with touches of old-world elegance and Southwestern flair! We stayed as a couple and enjoyed meeting others around the fire pit. The accommodations were cozy…with a fireplace in the room and stained glass doors. A hospitality center was open all the time for tea/coffee/snacks and drinks. Beautiful local art and curated vintage art throughout. Inspired and quaint. Even dog-friendly! We will definitely go back!

El Portal is a Unique living experience in that the building itself (Adobe construction) is an homage to the first people of this land and all around you is attention to detail that you will not see anywhere else. It is in the very heart of Sedona and so driving in heavy traffic is not an issue, the grounds are impeccable and are extremely well cared for, it is both Rustic and New and the staff will shower you with kindness. WE will return again and again….

This hotel is such a gem. It’s dog friendly and walking distance to dining and shopping. The property is so charming as it has an old world vibe that oozes luxury. The staff were extremely accommodating. If you are bringing dogs and need a sitter while you are out exploring call ahead and they have a couple they recommend.

This is a very special, dog friendly hotel. It’s more like an oasis of peace and tranquillity. It’s right in the center of a lovely shopping area but removed enough to not be bothered by it. There is a beautiful garden with a central located fire pit with comfy chairs and plenty of logs to keep the fire going. Our room had a lovely patio area that was just for us and our dog. It was so convenient not having to walk him and find a place for him to go! The lobby “kitchen area” was stocked with complimentary snacks and drinks along with a wine/beer honor bar. Fresh baked cookies daily and lovely amenities, fireplace in room, comfortable beds and spacious luxurious bathroom, my idea of heaven. Thank you to Fran and I’m sorry I can’t remember the other kind lady who handled our check in and were there each day making our time there so special. They also provided us with the name of a pet sitter who was able to come out at last minute and went shopping with me and my sweet dog and look after him while I went into all the shops. Perfect stay in beautiful Sedona! So much is lovely about this place you just have to go and check it out yourself. You’ll be so happy you did. I forgot to add that it’s in s wonderful central location close to fun shopping and restaurants. You just need to park so you can walk almost anywhere for shopping and restaurants. Also in the evenings they had as s’more packets ready to make. Just wonderful!
