These are Not Our Words…They are Our Guests’

Isn’t it time to break the chain hotel habit? Get out of the rut staying in cookie cutter rooms, sterile lobbies, and boring amenities. It’s time to stay at El Portal Sedona Hotel, and here’s why…

“Mother daughter trip
Cannot say enough good things. If you are looking for a great personalized experience, choose El Portal. They even have the honor system. So charming and so quaint. What a treat to visit with Steve (the owner) as well as Fran who gave me so many tips. Loved everything about it.” (by pharrison319)*“A Beautiful Boutique Hotel

We had the pleasure of staying in this hotel for 4 nights. It’s a perfect location for your stay in Sedona. There are many restaurants that are within walking distance and the hiking trails are about a 10–15-minute drive. The hotel is custom built by owners Steve and Connie, who also work at the hotel, and are both friendly and gracious. This hotel is also pet friendly which was a must for us. Each room is very unique and custom designed. We had the opportunity to stay in two of the rooms and both were great. We stayed at the Grand Canyon #7 and Rim View #9. The Grand Canyon is a downstairs room and has a nice, private patio. The Rim View is an upstairs room. Of the two rooms, we really loved the Grand Canyon, but both were really comfortable. Please note this is a boutique hotel, not some cookie cutter Hyatt. Each room has a different theme and beautiful antique style furniture throughout. In fact, the entire hotel feels like a work of art. We hope to return to Sedona one day and we’ll be staying at this hotel when we do. We’re posting a photo of us by the fireplace, which was actually taken by Steve on his phone and sent to us. He was so excited to see us in matching outfits with our pup, he asked if he could take a picture and we agreed! That’s one small example of how welcome you feel when you stay at El Portal!” (by alexisooo)
