Pet Friendly Sedona Hotel - Now with Rooftop Garden

El Portal Sedona Hotel - Luxurious, Pet Friendly Sedona Hotel

EL PORTAL SEDONA HOTEL TAKES TOP SPOT in Best Pet Friendly Hotel category in Travel Award contest sponsored by USA TODAY.

At El Portal we love pets, but our human guests come first. Pets must NOT be left in rooms unattended for any reason, without checking with hotel management first. Guests must take care of their pets and clean up after them as well. All pets must be good citizens. We do not board or watch pets during the day or night. PETS MUST NOT BE LEFT UNATTENDED!

El Portal is Sedona’s original pet friendly hotel. Steve and Connie, by way of their lifetime involvement in the Pet Food and Care Industry are committed to making a memorable inn experience for both you and your pet. To the Segners, there was no question that an upscale, luxury inn could provide style, the best amenities and personalized concierge services for guests and their pets.  The hotel was built with wood and tile flooring throughout to accommodate canine visitors and has fencing to create over 1,000 square feet of dog friendly patio area. Just outside the enclave is Oak Creek, perfect for walking dogs.

We have hotel suites ready for you and your pet. Room 1 is designated for smaller pets, while rooms 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 are fine for all size pets.  Rooms 3, 4, 5 and 7 have fenced patios; these are for early morning and late night potty trips, not to leave your pet in while you go shopping, out to dinner, etc. Some pets maybe left in rooms – as long as your pet is a good neighbor (quiet), you check with management, and leave a cell phone number. We allow all-sized pets in most rooms, but for 10, 11 and 12, we recommend small dogs. Pets must be well-behaved, and on a leash at all times. Pets must not be left in rooms unattended without checking with management, and must never be left in rooms unattended after 7:30pm. Pet sitters are available – please see listings below.

El Portal is proud to be a pet friendly hotel in Sedona, and we welcome you and your pet to our luxury Oak Creek Canyon hotel!

Remember that there are never any pet fees at El Portal!

pet-friendly-fenced-in-patio“We loved it!”
“The purpose of our trip was for our two senior labs to experience travel. They were treated like royalty! We were given extra thick blankets for them to lie on as well as treats, clean up bags, etc. Our room (called The Flat Rock Hickory) had a patio with fenced garden which gave the dogs freedom to roam. Our room was beautiful and spotless..and I mean spotless! The king size bed was so comfortable but the jacuzzi bathtub was the best of all for me, right down to the high quality toiletries and view of the garden. The room was very spacious and we felt secure on the property to sleep with the patio door wide open. This was an excellent experience not only for us but for our dogs as well.”

At El Portal Sedona Hotel we strive to make you and your pet’s experience comfortable, convenient, fun and relaxing! Please see the resource listings for pets in the Sedona area below.

When we welcome pets into our luxury Sedona hotel, we know that they are living the good life. With extra thick blankets and treats, each of our rooms is designed to provide the best amenities for our guests and their pets. Not every animal is that lucky though!

Recently we came across the good work done by the High Country Puppy Rescue group based in Flagstaff. This organization is dedicated to saving the lives of young puppies across Arizona from neglectful or harmful situations works diligently to find new loving and caring homes. As pet lovers ourselves, we’d love to help them further their cause.  Click here to learn more.
