My wife and I were able to stay at this hotel during our New Years Eve visit and had an AMAZING stay!!! We stayed in the Flat Rock #5 room and it was perfect - A TON of character, spacious, and just perfectly appointed with everything we needed. In addition, the hotel also has a complimentary breakfast bar, as well as a well-appointed mini bar in the Great Room where you can purchase beer and wine. We were between this hotel and the Wilde Resort when we were booking and we're so HAPPY that we chose this hotel, due to the character and location - You're literally steps away from the Tlaquepaque Arts & Shopping Village and all of the downtown area so you just can't beat the location!!! The Owners (Steve and Connie) were also super nice and the entire staff was amazing!!! We will definitely be coming back and staying at El Portal the next time we visit Sedona - 5 STARS!!!

Hotel's Favorite
Nicely maintained rooms, ours (6) was nice and private, nice setup with free non-alc drinks and snacks, very friendly and helpful proprietor. Walkable to lots of restaurants and coffee shops. Would absolutely come back and stay here again! Just a warning - not a ton of parking, so don’t bring multiple cars…

It was like stepping back 100 years in time- but with all the amenities of modern life tastefully integrated- the beams and timbers reminded us of the Ahwahnee hotel in Yosemite -but much warmer and intimate. From the soaking tubs to the generous treats in the beautiful lobby to the comfortable beds we found ourselves hard pressed to want to leave and visit the rest of Sedona. But when we did tear ourselves away it was literally a 1 minute walk to great restaurants and shops in quaintest Sedona. Will come back as often as we can!!

This is a small authentic southwestern Adobe hotel oozing charm and very rustic in a quiet green setting. There are only 12 rooms all individually decorated in different styles. Ours was the Hile with 20 high beamed ceilings and a massive stone fireplace. The furniture is pretty much all antiques with a 50’s vibe adding to the ambience and eclectic nature of the hotel. We had a private patio with a fire pit which was fenced and perfect for our dogs to roam around in. Great to enjoy in the evening with S’mores provided for you! The great room has an honor bar and snack area with free breakfast items, cookies, a variety of snacks and soft drinks available at all times. The location is great providing a quiet green oasis in the heart of Sedona within easy walking distances of a multitude of restaurants, galleries and shops including the delightful Tiaquepaque Plaza just a 2 minute walk across the street. The service is superb and all the people are very friendly. We really love this hotel and will be back.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights during our trip through Nevada and Arizona. I booked this hotel because it screamed "Sedona" to me when I looked at it online. It was absolutely that and more. We enjoyed the peace and quiet, the wonderful courtyard full of birds, vines growing overhead to provide shade and the wonderful juniper firewood in the firepit. Each morning, we got up and hung out with others in the great room while enjoying our coffee and breakfast snacks. Our room was the Juniper room, and it was a very nice size and had great southwest furnishings. We walked over to Tlaquepaque a couple of times and really enjoyed the shops there. They seem more real that what's in the new downtown area. You also get spa and pool privileges at the hotel next door, and we enjoyed a nice afternoon there one day. They even have great food available by the pool for reasonable prices.

The El Portal Sedona Hotel is a relaxing getaway steps away from Tlaquepaque. Old world charm in combination with modern conveniences made our two night stay a delight. We savored morning coffee and evening cocktails in the lush courtyard while enjoying a crackling fire with a gentle fountain and birds chirping in the background. It was so peaceful that we're already planning our return visit to this lovely oasis

This was our first time to Sedona and we waited four years for this trip. El Portal was a family recommendation and it didn't disappointment. The vastness of the wooden bed and the size of the room was sheer decadence. We loved the honesty bar and the 'help yourself' fridge as well as the beautiful courtyard with the fire pit. It made it very tranquil and relaxing. Steve couldn't have been more helpful and gave us some brilliant suggestions. We went to Shorebird which was lovely and also the West Fork Trail which was stunning!! I will definitely stay here next time I am lucky to come to Sedona.

This is one of our first trips out since COVID hit, and the hotel was as terrific as ever. We love the feeling of seclusion this place has even though it is right in the heart of the arts district. As we sat in the shaded courtyard, it was so relaxing to hear all the small birds and the breeze rustling the shade trees. An oasis in the desert. Our room was so comfortable (as all the ones we've stayed in have been). We slept soundly. Waking up to having a generous continental breakfast (great coffee, pastries, muffins, toast, yogurt) out in the great room started the morning right. Despite the privacy and seclusion that El Portal offers, we also were able to meet and make friends with some wonderful guests. The smiles on everyone's face say it all. Hated to leave, but we'll be back.

We stayed at the El Portal in Suite #5- Flat Rock Hickory from April 8-10 for spring break. The hotel is centrally located in Sedona, so there are plenty of dining options & shopping within walking distance. Parking was provided by the hotel, so we didn't have to worry about our vehicle. The hotel can be described as quaint luxury. Our room was decorated with warm colors & separated by a small set of steps. This was nice because my 8 year old was able to have some privacy in her own full sized twin day bed, but also not be to far from mom & dad. We loved the indoor & outdoor gas fires & made complimentary smores & coffee. We also took advantage of the large in room whirlpool soaking bath tub, which was nice after a day of hiking/exploring. Everything was clean & meticulously maintained. We enjoyed a short time in the neighboring hotel's pool (sharing agreement), which was easy to use & navigate entry.
