How We Created an Authentic Arts-and-Crafts Style at El Portal

From the moment you enter El Portal, it’s clear that it is vastly different from any corporate hotel. From the windows framed in recycled 200-year-old wood to the Arts-and-Crafts-style furnishings found in each room, El Portal radiates a distinctive charm reminiscent of a bygone era. While most hotels are constantly remodeling and redecorating in an attempt to be trendier than the competition, Steve and Connie are always striving to make El Portal feel more authentic.
