We have a special guest staying with us –  actor, director, singer and musician, and Oscar winner for “Little Miss Sunshine.” Can you guess who – Alan Arkin! Yes, Mr. Arkin is in town staying at El Portal Luxury Hotel, taking in the sights and sounds of Sedona.

At El Portal Luxury Hotel you don’t have to be a star to be treated like one. All guests are special to us at El Portal, whether you’re here for business, on a family vacation, or just to get out of the city and “unplug” – you deserve the best! Our goal is for guests to make themselves completely at home at El Portal. The twelve room boutique hotel was designed and built with painstaking attention to detail, featuring turn of the century Southwestern design, 18-inch thick handmade adobe walls, recycled wood trim and natural native stone.  El Portal’s location in the historic arts district is within walking distance to Oak Creek, the Tlaquepaque shopping village and Los Abrigados Resort and Spa, providing plenty of opportunities for pampering, dining and leisurely strolling.

But if leisurely strolling is too tame for you, you may want to take on one of the many hiking trails Sedona has to offer. El Portal owner Steve Segner is an avid outdoorsman, and will sit down with you to plan your hike. There are over 40 trails, with elevations from 3600 to 6400 feet. Depending on your level of adventure for the day, we will get you started with maps, directions and a hearty breakfast.
