In the evening, enjoy the company of other guests by the fire pit or settle in at a romantic table for two. Close to hiking, shopping, and fine dining this beautiful site is the perfect home base for your trip to... More

Came here for breakfast on a cool fall morning. Nice fire going. Good food but portions are large. My wife had pancakes and only ate one. Took the other two home and enjoyed them for a second time. My brother-in-law was also pleased with the bacon as well. This is a must place to eat in Sedona.

We only had one night in Sedona, and wanted something other than the chain hotel experience. It was a great place to stay after we finished the scenic Red Rocks Highway. Pros: Beautiful grounds, courtyard & distinctive rooms. The El Portal is within walking distance of restaurants, shops & galleries. The room we chose (#4) had a great soaker tub.... More

We visited here with our two large dogs. They were very accommodating, and even left a gift basket for the pooches. Spacious rooms with beautiful, woodsy decor. Patio. Fireplace. Honor bar and full restaurant. Great experience, would definitely recommend.
