Sedona is beautiful and this B & B fits well into the setting. The outdoor fire was quaint - the staff, very friendly. Breakfast was good but rather expensive. Our room need repairs --- soaked paster outside of the shower was crumbling, furniture (dresser drawers) was rickety in need of some TLC - sofa had stains - the "fence" which...

So sorry you were not happy with a few things. Just as an FYI, it snowed the day before arrival, so the patio and dirt were wet. So sorry for the mud. We don't plant until May when the weather permits. Also, the plaster is old looking on purpose for an authentic look. We certainly hope you will come again...

We had a great time at this hotel... very clean, unique pet friendly hotel. The staff was so accomodating to both us and our pets. Our room (#5) had a private enclosed patio which made nightime potty breaks a breeze. The location was perfect... just a few steps from Tlaquepaque (shopping and pet friendly restaurants). We will definately return in...

What a fabulous place. Totally hip and cool, very laid back...just yummy. Our room even had its own little backyard/courtyard which our dogs loved. The outdoor fireplace lit every night, with a glass of vino in hand, in energy filled Sedona - life doesn't get much better!

El Portal Luxury Inn will be the best hotel you ever stay in. When we first got there, we were welcomed and showed to our room. The owner, Steve, is very helpful and they have just about everything there. The breakfast is excellent. My mom had El Portal Omelet twice in a row. She says it's better than Red's (in...

Why Conde Nast selected El Portal Sedona as one of "The Top 50 Small Hotels in the WORLD" is apparent from the moment you approach the property. The location is wonderful. The reception / restaurant area is equally wonderful and, once you get a glimpse of the rooms............ you're hooked! Actually, "room" doesn't do them justice. Most are suites and...

One of the most unique properties that I have ever seen. We stayed in two different rooms and loved our stay. If you are in Sedona, you must try this inn.

If you want a predictable resort with obsequious service and homogenous opulence, don't come here. You can find that anywhere in the world. If you'd prefer a unique, personally tailored experience with a different kind of luxury delivered with casual integrity and a genuine "we can do that" attitude, try El Portal. It is no coincidence that it is listed...

Love this inn! Stumbled upon it because we needed to stay somewhere pet-friendly. Would recommend to anyone with or without a pet. Did not want to leave the room- it was so cozy. We had a small yard for our pooch and had a wonderful weekend relaxing. We will definitely be back!
