We arrived at the El Portal a few hours earlier than check in time. Steve and Connie welcomed us with open arms, and said we'll have the room ready in 30 minutes. We love the atmosphere, the sisters who run the kitchen and housekeeping (Esperanza, More and Sylvia), and the beautiful suite with outdoor patio for the pups. And this...

This place is perfect. What we love about it is its not your big corporate hotels. This place is home away from home and to us that was awesome. The beautiful dinning room, fireplace, the the court yard, the layout and architecture of the Inn is beautiful. Each room is different and this place is amazing. The staff are really...

We showed up for check-in an hour or two early. Signs point to registration, which takes you into a dining room/lounge area. Wasn't a soul around to help me. So i left.

Central location in Sedona to shops, restaurants and touring sighs. Steve was very informative on travel times and things to do. The room was spacious and breakfast was good. Very pet friendly hotel. All of the employees were friendly and helpful.

I cannot find anything in my memory or my notes that would be a negative criticism of this hotel. The rooms were nicely appointed, clean and comfortable. The staff was cordial and efficient, not wasting our time, but friendly and helpful. The price was right, considering it is Sedona. If I were going back to Sedona, there would be no...

I love this hotel! The rooms are each unique with huge, comfortable beds and luxury, spa-like bathrooms. The hosts are incredibly nice and accommodating. This hotel feels more like a home.

Been a few years but remember how much we enjoyed our stay at this cozy small hotel. Rooms were decorated to reflect a western decor, it gave you a feeling of being in someone's home. We decided on several side trips offered through the hotel. I remember a sunset jeep drive, horseback riding and a trip to the grand canyon.

One must be certain to experience El Portal, especially if you are a lover of Early 20th century architecture and art. El Portal is quite small, which is a major part of its beauty. It is very Pet Friendly, as well. Each suite is unique and luxurious. Steve and Connie Segner and their staff are excellent hosts, too. The inner...

My husband and I very much enjoyed spending our birthday weekend in beautiful Sedona at the El Portal Inn. This 12 room boutique inn was perfect for us.
