*Pet Policy  

You know we love pets at El Portal Sedona Hotel but, we remind you that it is just that, a hotel and not a boarding kennel. Your pet is your responsibility; never leave them unattended in a room or on the patio, and you must pick up after your pet. Your pet must NOT bark or cause room damage. Any damages will be added to your account. We love pets, but some of our guests are not pet lovers and have come to El Portal for a peaceful and quiet, relaxing and tranquil visit, so we ask our guests to be considerate of each other. Rooms will not be cleaned by staff if your pet is left in the room unless arrangements are made with the staff.

Thank you, Your Friends at El Portal Sedona Hotel
