El Portal – A Pet Friendly Hotel
El Portal is a pet friendly Sedona hotel. We were named the Best pet Friendly Hotel by USA Today and 10Best.com! We welcome our four-legged guests as warmly as we welcome our two-legged guests and there is never a fee for pets. El Portal has a special pet treat basket that includes a blanket, doggie bags and treats.  Several of our rooms have outdoor fenced pet patios. Sedona is a very pet friendly city with pet friendly hikes, walking paths, a dog park, and pet friendly stores and restaurants.

From the March 14th 2019 Washington Post:

How can you tell if a hotel is pet-friendly? Consider the El Portal Sedona Hotel in Sedona, Ariz. It doesn’t charge a pet fee or cleaning charge unless Rover decides to go on a rampage. The hotel is designed for pets, with wood-and-tile flooring throughout, so cleaning is easy.

“Guests are given a pet welcome basket with a blanket to put on the bed, sofa, chair to protect it from shedding,” co-owner Steve Segner says. “There are treats and poop baggies in it as well. We want guests to bring their pets on vacation with them.”

El Portal – The Best Location

El Portal is situated in Sedona’s art district, adjacent to the world famous Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village. The boutique hotel is also within walking distance of uptown Sedona, but away from all the noise and traffic. Our guests have access to a full gym, two swimming pools, and spa privileges next to El Portal at Los Abrigados, guests just have to show their room key!

Walking paths connect El Portal’s guests to over 16 miles of paved bike and walking paths, and miles of hiking trails. El Portal is the only hotel with full time guides on staff to help guests plan their outdoor activities, pick out hiking trails and explore the Grand Canyon or Indian Country.
