Can we give it 6 stars?

If you’re looking for that “something different” place to stay, in boutique luxury style, El Portal has the perfect combination of personality and distinction. From the moment you turn off Sedona’s busy highway 179, you are cosseted in a refined backwater that could be straight out of the Frank Lloyd Wright manual. With individual artfully-decorated guest rooms and gracious public spaces – including a gorgeous outdoor patio complete with open-pit fire (and s’mores kits!) – this is as much an experience as a place to stay. True, there is no restaurant or bar, but the hotel makes up for it with other personal touches and a genuine sense of empathy from all the staff. The fact it is so well situated for most of Sedona, including the fabulous adjacent Tlaquepaque shopping, arts and dining quarter, is a welcome bonus, while the plentiful artwork and period furniture helps to maintain the sense of old world charm that is an almost literal breath of fresh air. We hope to be back. Often.

Just got back from our wonderful stay at the BEAUTIFUL El Portal. I cannot praise it enough! It was everything we wanted. From spacious, gorgeous and super clean (a rarity these days) rooms, to the cozy fire pit that had a fire going first thing every morning to enjoy your coffee by, and first thing every night to enjoy your s’mores. The lighting in the courtyard just instantly draws you in and makes you want to quickly grab a blanket (which they have stacks to offer), pull up an Adirondack, get your spot next to the fire and chat with the other hotel guests coming and going. There were even people who had the GENIUS idea to work remotely at this beautiful inn. If being outside isn’t for you, don’t worry! There is a fire burning in the lobby, which really feels less like a lobby and more like home. There is fresh coffee made every morning and an array of breakfast goodies and snackies that you can help yourself to, at no extra charge (another rarity) . They also have small refrigerators stocked with various fun local beers, ciders and wine for you to try – charge it to my room, please!

The conversation, the warm cozy feeling, the comfort of knowing you’re not being glared at for bringing your family’s most loyal companion (your pup), the ease of check in and check out, THE GORGEOUS ROOMS!!!! They even have a sweet little basket made up for your pup with treats to make them feel right at home.

The owners, Steve and Connie, really think of all the fine details to make your stay extra comfy and special. That’s what stood out to me the most. You don’t feel like you’re staying at some generic hotel. El Portal feels like you’re staying with a friend; couldn’t be more comfortable. I am definitely making my way back out to this diamond in the rough!

The most incredible wedding weekend
El Portal is one of the most precious gems you can find in terms of lodging in Sedona. Tucked into the serene and rustic Talaquepaque village in lush gardens and beautiful stonework, you feel as if you are stepping into a dream. The decor has been hand crafted and selected by the owners to give you a unique southwestern Arts and Crafts experience. My now husband and I stayed in the honeymoon suite for our wedding weekend and were amazing by the comfortable bed, and incredible double head and steam shower and beautiful views out of the window. The atmosphere of the hotel at large is quiet and peaceful, with an added bonus of being pet friendly. Staff was very accommodating and Steve and Connie went out of their way to ensure everyone had a wonderful experience for the hotel. Will always recommend staying here.

Utterly charming
Beautifully put together with the owner’s passion for detail and delightful architecture evident every where you look. The central patio is lovely for breakfasts and that glass of wine late at night under the grape vines and twinkly lights before falling asleep in the most comfy bed. Location near the best Sedona red rock trail heads and Tlaquepaque are more added bonuses. A great team run the place too and make you feel at home immediately with minimal fuss. Why aren’t there more places like this?

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!
