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!

We had a great girls weekend here in Jan'12! The hotel is lovely and the location is great - able to walk to shops/dining. Steve, the owner, is very helpful with sightseeing suggestions. The rooms are huge and would also be great for a family stay. Would definitely stay here again!

Our second trip to El Portal and loved every second of it. We stayed in # 8 the Juniper Room. Wonderful furnishings and amenities. Warm and inviting gas fireplace a romantic retreat. The court yard is so inviting loved the fire pit. This is a perfect place to relax and unwind.

For a family that travels a lot, it's great to have accommodations that feels more like home rather than a hotel. Room #12 for a family is the way to go!

If you want to be treated like a number, have a pool boy bring you a fancy drink with an umbrella, and basically have the same vacation you always do, this is not your place. If you want to be treated like a friend, your four legged fur kid to be treated like a member of the family, and see...

Stayed there the beginning of January. We brought 4 dogs two flat coats, a lab, and a golden. Nice room, best to call and reserve a room from the friendly owners. We'll stay there again when we make our second trip to Sedona.
